Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark Review

Activision has had some success with their Transformers based games, alternating between the thoroughly enjoyable outer space adventures of War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron, and the much less interesting Earth-based games set in the movie ...

How to Train Your Dragon 2 Review

If you’re a gaming parent, your kids have probably played a disappointing video game based on a movie they love. With few exceptions, they are often lazy, uninspired, and not worth your money. While many developers have moved out of the genre ...

Tomodachi Life island

Tomodachi Life Review

It’s not easy being in charge. I thought I could just create an island, name it, open it up for business and wait for the waves of Miis to inhabit the place. But Tomodachi Life for the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS taught me that people have needs that ...

Mario Kart 8 Start

Mario Kart 8 Review

I was hard on Mario Kart 7 (on the 3DS) because I felt it didn’t really advance the series much past what Mario Kart Wii (a game our family played the heck out of) offered. After having the kids (and some of their friends) help me put Mario Kart 8 ...

Child of Light Review

Final Fantasy was, for many years, the greatest game I had ever played. Not only for being such a revolutionary game back in the NES days, but for opening up a whole new world of role-playing games for this fledgling young gamer. Today, it’s ...

NES Remix 2 Review

The original NES Remix for the Wii U was an interesting and surprising proposition when it was released a few months ago. Take “classic” NES games and split them up into rapid-fire bite-sized challenges. It mostly worked, but I noted in my ...

Kirby: Triple Deluxe Review

Mario is fun, Donkey Kong is tough but gorgeous, but for our money, Kirby might be my family’s favourite Nintendo franchise character that stars in platforming games. True, Mario platformers are still the gold standard for gameplay. But if ...

Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

I don’t know why, but video game makers have never been able to make a great Spider-Man game. I’ve played a lot of them over the years (Ultimate Spider-Man might still be my favorite), but they’ve always been good at best, but ...

I typically shy away from discussing Free-To-Play (F2P) games because I’m not a particular fan of the model. We’ve seen stories about kids unknowingly spending hundreds of dollars because they don’t understand that In-App Purchases (IAP) ...
