Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (3DS)

It's been 8 years since I purchased this game (damn...), I decided to revisit it. It's held up really well! Like other Mario and Luigi games (RPG), Bowser's Inside Story is loaded with charm, from the humor to the graphics. Bowser is the main (playable) character, and it's a lot of fun battling as h...

Re: Hardest Donkey Kong Country Levels?

Also, I meant to ask: how are the Wii and Wii U sequels? Haven't played Tropical Freeze (Wii U) yet, but DKC Returns plays exactly like the original trilogy with more expansive and modern gameplay effects. It beats the mine cart/rocket barrel levels to death, but it's a really good game. Really fai...

Re: Hardest Donkey Kong Country Levels?

Bringing back this thread with one overlooked but certainly brutal level. Koindozer Klamber from Donkey Kong Country 3. I hate this stupid level. For some reason, only the SNES version of this level has given me trouble. Probably because the screen for the GBA is zoomed out, but nevertheless. This i...

Re: Games you like that everyone else hates?

Sonic 3D Blast-Playing it with an analog stick makes it MUCH better imo. Not a masterpiece, but I think it's pretty good.

Re: Sonic Forces gameplay revealed

I hope I'm wrong, but this looks extremely boring. Just looks like you're pressing the control stick forward and bulldozing through enemies. Weeeeee. This is the kind of stereotype that Sonic Adventure has gotten. Having played that game the other day, I don't find that true at all. What made Sonic ...

Peaceful Video Game Music?

Video game music, like any other music, can set the mood perfectly in games depending on the setting. From serious, to dark, to happy, to sad, to whimsical, there's all sorts of emotions video game music can reach. So when the setting is peaceful, what songs/soundtracks come to mind as your favorite...

Re: Blast Corps (N64)

Fired this up again. I think it should be in consideration for a possible re-review from the VGC because it's just as fun today as it was in '97. It's easy enough that casual gamers can now through and have a good time, but completing everything and finding all the secrets is a challenge. For my mon...

Re: Movie Tie in Game that are GOOD?

Goldeneye is obvious

I'd also go with Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Gamecube) which is surprisingly really good.

Re: 2017/3/5: Nintendo 64: Top Gear Rally, Carmageddon 64

At last an F- game for the N64! I think it should be mentioned the original Carmageddon game had you mowing down humans, while the N64 version features zombies with green blood. This move was odd because the game is rated mature anyway. Anyways, great reviews as per usual. Last line of the Carmagedd...

Impractical Jokers

Reality shows usually do not have any business having big audiences. Many reality shows are generic, boring, and obnoxious without being the least bit entertaining. With that being said, Impractical Jokers is the rare exception. It's a hidden camera prank show, with a twist. The difference is the pr...
