Super Street Fighter IV (3DS)

I was hesitant to pick this up, because I already owned Street Fighter IV on the Xbox 360. But it was really cheap now, so I decided to give it a go. And now I'm addicted! There's still an active community of online players (mostly beginners, like me) and I really like that the special moves can be ...

Re: Aladdin Deck Enhancer (NES)

The pack-in game is Dizzy the Adventurer. It's a combination of platforming and puzzle solving. I can't imagine Codemasters thought this Humpty-Dumpty mascot was going to sell. Well, Dizzy was one of the most popular game series on the ZX Spectrum, so I guess that's why Codemasters 'imagined' it mi...

Re: Alan Wake

I actually think this game is a bit overrated. I finished it, but it didn't really feel 'special to them'. I mean, it's very well produced and the atmosphere is very well done, but the gameplay is a bit repetitive, the game is very linear and the major premise of the plot becomes clear very early in...

Re: Least Favorite Bosses?

Hey! Pikmin (3DS)

I'm playing this now, I made it to stage 6 so far. I enjoy it, it's a very accessible and easy going game. It's not a strategy game, but more a little bit like a cross between a platform game and Lemmings . I can understand why hardcore Pikim-fans or hardcore gamers may be less charmed by it, but I ...

I Like Short Games

Many games nowadays tend to be 20+ to 40+ hours to complete - even without unlockables. I don't like that, since I actually like to finish my games (at least the main story, I usually do not bother about unlockables). So I admit, I like my games that aren't too long - more like 6-8+ hours. I feel mo...
