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 […]
Dying Light | Review
Taking the zombie survival genre we’ve come to know and love, then making it into an open world adventure that lies somewhere between Mirror’s Edge and Dead Rising, this is a fantastic title! There’s something familiar but unique in the first person presentation of Dying Light’s parkour style gameplay. As a runner for a group […]

Coder Child has a new game headed to the Nintendo 3DS eShop called Zombie Incident. The game was originally developed by NeneFranz, which won top spot at MSXdev’11. The game has since been updated and brought to life (so to speak) on the 3DS.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the game. Hamartia, the great citadel, became the symbol of human sin. After centuries of excesses its penance was going to come. In the darkness of the night, chaos invaded everything. Beasts started to scream. Nothing was like before! No one sane would go to that place.
You’ll join the heroine of the game to explore the citadel, find the eight golden stars, and then run away from there.
The game features visually appealing pixel-art graphics and an amazing chiptune soundtrack. The game will also come with online leaderbords where you can register your high score and challenge your friends.
On Thursday, a three-year project by three talented indie developers is set to be unveiled exclusively on Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS.

And to top it off, some free content will be available from launch for players to try out the game.
The title, which will be a downloadable eShop exclusive, will be available in two packages, IronFall Invasion: Campaign and IronFall Invasion: Multiplayer.
the first option is campaign, which features 11 single-player levels, as well as 78 additional challenges that are unlocked as you progress through your overall mission to liberate Earth.
A small team of six of us began developing Broken Joysticks three years ago after the closure of TeamXbox.com and when we began working on this project I don’t think any of us could have imagined that the site would still be live 36 months later but here we are. Some of our comrades have come and gone but we’ve managed to provide some excellent coverage whether it’s our timely review of Majora’s Mask or our former Second Dimension interview series there’s been steady stream of content. As we enter our third year it’s time for some things to change…. Read more »

The game is of course available exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
The competition opens on Wednesday and closes on March 29th, with winners being announced in May.
Entries for the competition are being be accepted via Miiverse, through the Nintendo 3DS. The winning entries will have their artistic creation turned into their very own Pokémon trading card game card.

Open up your calendar because there’s another RPG set to keep you busy for awhile. CIRCLE Entertainment is prepping Adventure Bar Story for release this week, with the RPG set to debut in the Nintendo 3DS eShop this Thursday.
The game is set in a fantasy world in which you go on adventures with party members and manage a bar. Your bar is facing a hostile take over by a rich Restaurant Owner: Gustav. Gustav is a powerful man and he will try to drive you out of business and force you to sell the bar! And what is the best way to defend the take over? You just have to win the crowd and become the most popular bar in town, so even Gustav can’t touch you!
In the game you’ll collect mats to make dishes by visiting other towns and dungeons. Levels are gained in this game by eating, of all things. Raise your bar’s rank via sales at the bar and by performing well in the cooking contest held at the castle.
The game sure seems to be an interesting venture and sounds like a cool concept.
I wasn’t sure how much fun I’d have with an aerial combat game when this came across to me. I mean the last real game I played in this genre, and I mean really played, was After Burner way back on the SEGA Master System! I played that game to death, though I was just a kid at the time. Any other flight sim or combat games I’ve played in the past lost my interest fairly quickly, either because of their repetitive nature or their steep learning curve and difficulty.
That has changed with Ace Combat Assault Horizon Legacy + for the NEW Nintendo 3DS. This game is actually pretty fun to play.
The first thing I want to talk about right off the bat is the audio in the game. I know, it’s an odd thing to lead with, especially in a review that would typically be mostly about the gameplay. I love the audio in this game.
