If you’re a fan of Metroidvania titles, you know, games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for example, UnEpic is a wonderful exploration title you’ll probably enjoy very much! I’ve already gushed a little bit about the game before, but there is a lot more to be said about the game itself. Available both on Steam and on the Wii-U eShop, I took a look at the console release that is available thanks to EnjoyUp publishing the title on Nintendo’s latest system. The best part that I’ve already noted is how much UnEpic feels like you’re living a comedic RPG web comic. (more…)

If you’re a fan of space combat sims and want a game to just track some fighters and destroy the daylights out of them, Strike Suit Zero: Directors Cut has a fun collection of missions. There is a deep and rich lore to the game as well, which is delivered via dialogue while you’re in and out of combat. This keeps the story progression entertaining while you’re busy trying to blast your rivals.

The directors cut is an improved version of the original game which unfortunately I never had a chance to play. From what I’ve read, improved controls, rebalancing and some additional missions available before as DLC are included. Apparently you get into the Strike Suit ship a lot faster too, which basically allows you to switch into a mecha mode with missile barrage capabilities for awhile using “flux” energy which you gained over time or faster in combat. Otherwise the ship reverts to a stardard space craft fighter. You can swap between these two modes too, which his a nice feature. (more…)

Ever played the first person rogue-like RPG Delver? Well good news! The early access game that’s still in beta just got even better. Since it’s launch Delver has seen some graphical changes and a good progression of updates. There’s still lots planned for the future but I couldn’t resist and got in on this title already. Going through the dungeon, leveling up, and wandering about is fun! Sorta like a simplified, cartoony, one quest version of Ultima Underworld if I had to put a reference to it. So what’s new?

NES Remix 2 is on the way and I have to admit, I’m excited! Growing up, my friends and I would always go on about ideas like this. Specifically I remember us talking about a more 16-bit Final Fantasy battler that was quite similar to the concept of Dissidia. I didn’t know what to think when the original NES Remix was released as a huge surprise during a Nintendo Direct announcement. I’d actually hopped on Twitch to see someone else playing it and instantly I wanted to give it a go. So what can we expect for the sequel? (more…)

Eager for more news on Super Smash Bros. the latest in the series coming to both Wii U and 3DS? Nintendo does confirm these will be new details. Any speculation on what could be coming our way? I have a few hopes myself. Dr. Wily perhaps? Who knows! Personally, and it’s a long shot, I’d love to see Wart from Super Mario Bros. 2 the USA version. After all, it is a featured game in the upcoming NES Remix 2 available later this month on the Wii U eShop. The Nintendo Direct will be on Tuesday, April 8th, at 6 p.m. EST and viewable here: http://www.Nintendo.com/Nintendo-Direct
