Nintendo E3 2015: Perception and Reality

It is the morning after. The morning after a seemly dismal Nintendo E3 performance. You would think that Nintendo’s showcase from their Digital Event was worse than that of their press conference in 2008.

Game Over: Samurai Warriors Chronicles

I would first like to take this oportunity to introduce my own personal take on the video game review. I call it GAME OVER. I don’t feel that I need to assign a score to a game so I just write about it after I have essentially beat any given game. I write about what I think about the game, what I like, what I don’t like, and anything else that may give someone else a better idea of what the game is and if they will like it, or not.
 
 

In the past few weeks I have finished the brunt of what Samurai Warriors Chronicles has to offer. After traveling through the strife and turmoil of Japan’s Warring States period with my created character named Makio, I finally reached the credits. All the while I was switching sides, fighting against former leaders and becoming allies with every officer that I came across. I began to assume that Makio was nothing more than a human representation of the fighting spirit among the many different leaders of Japan at that time period. Despite the fact that many of the playable characters had the same goal; it was my warrior spirit Makio was the one thing that bonded Japan together in the end.

This 3DS Fighter Has A Ryu In It As Well

Prior to the release of Dead Or Alive Dimensions I had only played Doa 4. While I enjoyed my time with it I was never a huge fan of the series. Doa dimensions for the 3ds, with all it’s flaws, has changed my mind slightly. Continue reading

Long Live The Wii

This is my long over due follow up to a post I did a while ago called The Wii is Dead.

Just as all hope is lost the Nintendo Wii holds on for dear life. Armed with nothing but the Master Sword can the Wii hold off enemy forces long enough for reinforcements to arrive?

I would first like to examine the steps that Nintendo of America has taken to keep the Wii alive. We all know of the last great beacon on the hill. The Legend of Zelda the Skyward Sword is the last great game that we know we’ll be getting.
