Chase: Cold Case Investigations ~Distant Memories~ | REVIEW

This is going to be a quicky review, which is appropriate because the subject of this review is a quicky game.

While the game has all the markings of...

Langrisser Re:Incarnation -TENSEI- | Review

I don’t know where to begin with Langrisser Re:Incarnation -TENSEI-, which for the rest of this review I will simply refer to as Langrisser. The game is a strategic RPG for the Nintendo 3DS and is very similar to the Fire Emblem series of games. Though while latest Fire Emblem game has a lot of style and polish, Langrisser feels somewhat dull. That’s not to say that the game isn’t enjoyable. It does have an engaging story...

Slice It! | Review

Slice It! is a rather simple puzzle game with a very simple concept. It is also the latest game to make the move from free app in the app store to a paid eShop title for the Nintendo 3DS. And while the game does have it’s fair share of challenge and enjoyment, the $5.99 price tag feels a bit hefty for what is available for free on smartphones. But price aside, what is this game?
