I know that sometimes the term “old school” is thrown around a lot. Talk of any game that looks, plays and feels like it could have been released back in the days of the Nintendo Entertainment System brings that saying to the front. Zombie Incident is another game that has that look and feel. Here’s […]

Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy + | Review
You know I didn’t know what to expect when I started up this game but I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy + a lot more than I thought I would.
The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask | Review
I’ll be honest. I never played the original Majora’s Mask. Way back when the game was released on the Nintendo 64, I never got around to playing it. I sank countless hours into the game that came before it, Ocarina of Time. But somehow I just never got around to this one. I had heard […]
The Nintendo 64 didn’t get as much love as other classic Nintendo consoles in terms of Virtual Console in the 7th generation but hopefully the second time around is a bit better with the announcement of N64 games for the Wii U Virtual Console.
Announced for the VC were Super Mario 64 and Donkey Kong 64. The former is available right now on the North American E-shop while DK64 is expected to launch sometime in the near future. Prices for N64 titles range from $6.99 to $9.99 USD.
Super Mario 64 launched on June 23rd 1996 and was released on the Nintendo DS in 2004. Donkey Kong 64 was released on November 24th 1999 and has yet to see a re-release on modern Nintendo consoles. Could this mean that other Rare greats like Perfect Dark or Jet Force Gemini could be re-released on the Wii U?
A brand new Japanese trailer for Bravely Second: End Layer has appeared on Square Enix Japan’s YouTube channel. Surprisingly the trailer is currently listed as a private video meaning that it is not currently indexed in the main YouTube gaming category. It is possible that the video was accidently uploaded prematurely so watch it in the embedded player before it gets taken down.
End Layer is the hotly anticipated sequel to last year’s surprise RPG hit Bravely Default for the Nintendo 3DS. Square has developed a few new systems to spice things up for players of the first game while keeping things familiar. Among these new developments is “consecutive chance” system which allows players to chain multiple encounters together with increasing difficulty for a chance at some really rare loot.
In terms of jobs End Layer will offer a whole host of awesome sounding jobs like Pirate, Ninja, Thief and some truly bizarre ones like the Catmaster.
