Gamer's University – Updated More than Never!

Final Fantasy Dimensions challenged the way I thought about mobile device purchases, and it did so before I even made the purchase. Even to the point where I might consider it a moral dilemma.  Let me explain: Final Fantasy Dimensions launched initially for iOS; the prologue chapter (about 1-2 hours of gameplay) was free, but […]

I’m on a jury and it’s less than fun, so I’ll make a quick update to let you all know about the latest Humble Bundle deal. This time, it’s for Android devices, and you still get copies of all of the games for your Windows, Linux, or MAC platform also. Four games. A little over […]

Very few of the Nintendo franchises have had the long standing dedication from fans and gamers the way Mario Kart has. From the Super Nintendo days, the kart racing game has long been a popular option from both the most dedicated gamers, as well as casual players. Ahead of its December 4 release date in […]

Let’s review: 1991 – Final Fantasy IV is released in the USA as Final Fantasy II. I was 7 years old. Sometime around 1995 or so I finally get my hands on this game and play the hell out of it…to the end. Circa 1996 – Emulation rises in popularity. I learn that I can […]

Mind you, I haven’t actually gotten my hands on any of this yet, but I wanted to talk about what Nintendo announced today; their highly anticipated new console. …And they’re calling it the WiiU (Weeoo?) Anyway, it’s quite interesting. It looks like they’re blending technologies between the Wii and the Nintendo DS, as the controller […]

I’ve been waiting for this for a long, long time. Ever since a friend introduced me to Emulators when I was in middle school, I dreamt of the day when someone would emulate all of the old LCD games and Nintendo Game & Watches that I used to love. I didn’t exactly understand then that […]

[Review] Dungeon Raid (iOS)

February 15th, 2011

Did somebody say match-3 puzzle game with experience points and magic spells? No? Nobody? Then I guess Dungeon Raid wouldn’t interest you. Dungeon Raid is a relatively new game for the iOS platform (that would be the iPhone, iPad and their ilk) that is exactly that, a match-three puzzler with a twist. Pull a line […]

Papa Sangre is today’s feature. I’m a sucker for new and crazy ideas like this and I have to imagine that more games like this would be a fantastic step forward, especially for visually impaired individuals. Here’s what el Papa is: Papa Sangre is a video game with no video. It’s a first-person thriller, done […]

It’s been a while since I’ve touched on (hah) any iPhone games, but recently I came across this one that really spoke to me. It’s a little game-company simulator called Game Dev Story. Basically your goal is to hire a small staff to research and create new video games for your chosen platform(s) using the […]

And now for an ON-TIME POST! I got some time over the weekend to finally sit down for a couple of hours with the new Final Fantasy game for the NDS. Previously I had said something to the effect of this apparently being a game likened to those of the golden era early Final Fantasy […]
