  • Review: The Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths (Nintendo Wii U)

    The Mysterious Cities of Gold: Secret Paths Developer: Neko Entertaiment Publisher: Ynnis Interactive Genre: Puzzle/Adventure Game Release Date: 11/21/2013 I can honestly say I’ve never really watched The Mysterious Cities of Gold. When I was a kid, I was more a G.I. Joe, Transformers, Captain Power, Visionaries and the like fan. I’ve always thought the […]

    Sonic Lost World: Deadly Six Bonus Edition Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: SEGA Genre: 3D Platformer Release Date: 10/29/2013 I used to love Sonic games.

  • Review: Wipeout Create and Crash (Nintendo Wii U)

    Wipeout: Create and Crash Developer: Be Havior/Endemol Publisher: Activision Genre: Platformer/Game Show Release Date: 10/15/2013 I’ve never actually watched an episode of the game show Wipeout. Sure, I’ve seen a few seconds of it flipping channels from time to time, but the hosts seemed annoying and I didn’t find anything funny or exciting about people […]

  • Review: Rayman Legends (Nintendo Wii U)

    Rayman Legends Developer: Ubisoft Montpelier Publisher: Ubisoft Genre: Platformer Release Date: 09/03/2013 If you’re a long time reader of me here at Diehard GameFAN, then you know platformers and driving games are my two least favorite genres.

  • Review: Star Wars Pinball (Nintendo Wii U)

    Star Wars Pinball Genre: Pinball Developer: Zen Studios Publisher: Zen Studios Release Date: 07/11/13 As we’ve discussed previously, while Zen Studios is likely most notable to gamers because of their Marvel Pinball series of tables across the different consoles, they’ve been expanding their range of licenses as time has gone on. The majority of their […]

  • Review: Pokemon Rumble U (Wii U)

    Pokémon Rumble U Developer: Ambrella Publisher: Nintendo of America Genre: Beat ‘Em Up Release Date: 08/29/2013 The Pokémon franchise has always been good about turning spin-offs into full length series. Pokémon Ranger, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon and Pokémon Stadium/Coliseum are all examples of the series breaking free from the same old “eight to ten year old […]

  • Review: Angry Birds Trilogy (Nintendo Wii U)

    Fun game, but the price will make you angrier than the birds.

  • Review: Turbo: Super Stunt Squad (Nintendo Wii U)

    Even with rocket-powered snails, Turbo: Super Stunt Squad can’t even leave the starting line.

    The Croods Publisher: D3 Publisher of America Developer: Dreamworks Interactive Genre: Party Release Date: 03/19/2013 Before you read this article, take a moment to read what Matt said about the 3DS version. The Croods is a movie from Dreamworks Entertainment; this is a collection of mini-games based loosely on the movie. I’ve put off writing […]

  • Review: Lego City: Undercover (Nintendo Wii U)

    Lego City: Undercover Developer: Traveller Tales Publisher: Nintendo Genre: Sandbox Release Date: 03/18/2013 I know, right? This is a bit late. Lego City: Undercover came out in mid-March, right when my pet started having some severe medical issues and so I wasn’t able to touch it until now. I asked other Diehard GameFAN staffers if […]

    Bit.Trip Presents…Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien Publisher: Gaijin Games Developer: Gaijin Games Genre: Rhythm/Platformer Release Date: 02/26/2013 My familiarity with the Bit.Trip series doesn’t extend far past the initial reaction of “Wow, there sure are a lot of releases of that game.” Not realizing, of course, that there are actually six different games in […]

  • Review: The Amazing Spider-Man: Ultimate Edition (Nintendo Wii U)

    The Amazing Spider-Man Ultimate Edition Developer: Beenox Publisher: Activision Genre: 3-D Action/Sandbox Release Date: 03/05/2013 I have to admit, it really does seem like Marvel is doing its best to destroy their Spider-Man franchise. First we had the “One More Day” fiasco where Spider-Man sold his marriage to the devil to save Aunt May’s life. […]

    Tekken Tag Tournament II Wii U Edition Developer: Namco Bandai Publisher: Namco Bandai Genre: Fighting Release Date: 11/18/2012 Wow, is this really my eighth review of a Wii U title in less than a month? So much for not reviewing games this year. Anyway, I’ve never been a big fan of the Tekken series. I’ve […]

    Call of Duty: Black Ops II Developer: Treyarch Publisher: Activison Genre: First Person Shooter Release Date: 11/18/12 Those unfamiliar with Activision’s extremely popular Call of Duty series probably don’t play video games. At all. Even with that said, the series has been such a tremendous success, within the realms of the hobby, that it has […]

  • Review: New Super Mario Bros. U (Nintendo Wii U)

    Nintendo plays it safe with a Mario launch title, but what it lacks in innovation it makes up in fun.
