Nicknames for Spinarak and Ariados!

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

As usual, following the Pokémon Analysis article we wrote for the Spinarak line, we’re asking for your nicknames for these spiders! The Name Rater wants to hear them as well. Poor guy was found in the Poké Mart trying to come up with alternate names for every single product again. He even came up with names for the policemen called to escort him back home.

Leave a comment suggesting a name or few for Spinarak and Ariados, and perhaps why you came up with those names as well. Maybe other readers will like your suggestions and use them in their games! You have at least a week to do so before the Name Rater casts his judgement, so get them in while you can!
And now you can read the rates here! But you can still submit if you’d like.

Review: Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity

Sunday, March 16th, 2014

Hello, beloved readers! My whole life, I’ve been praising Pokemon Emerald as the best Pokemon game, however, this was changed forever one fateful day a couple of weeks ago. I was in the EB Games, trading in some used games for credit. When I picked up a copy of Super Mario 3D World, my father wouldn’t let me purchase it (I later received it as a holiday gift), so I instead purchased the first thing I saw that caught my eye: a Pokemon game I hadn’t played! I took it home, popped it in my 3DS, and fell in love. I’m here today to tell you why Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity is my new second favourite game of all time! And for those wondering how this differs from previous titles, there’s an analysis within the review as well.


It’s… so beautiful!

Interview with AE Games Lead Developer

Saturday, March 8th, 2014

Hello, everyone! Today we’ve got a special treat for you – an interview with the lead developer of a new game development company, AE Games! AE Games is a company that’s sick of the way that the majority of third parties treat the Wii U, something they had stated publicly and which has garnered a fair bit of attention. If you’d like to see their full statement regarding the Wii U’s treatment and what they want to do about it, you can read it here.

AE Games has started development on a new Wii U exclusive called “Mad Men Football!”! Mad Men Football is a game where various historical figures play american football, in stark contrast to most modern sports games. There are very few third party Wii U exclusives, so in my opinion, the more new games coming to the system, the better! Enjoy the interview!
