New Super Mario Bros. review

New Super Mario Bros.

Yeah, we get it. It's cool not to be "into" Mario these days, but you know what's even cooler than that? Playing the New Super Mario Bros! Take that you emo-listening, teenage-angst-suffering acne-factories! We don't care what you say, playing a new-fangled Super Mario side-scroller that's a lot like the one from 20 years ago is way more fun than having your mom knit you an "A for Anarchy" winter hat so your precious ears don't get frostbitten.

Brain Age: Train Your Brain In Minutes A Day!

After training my brain for minutes a day for the last few months I have come to the conclusion that since playing video games decreases brain activity on the whole, using said device to increase brain activity is clearly illogical, and the desired effect can only negate itself due to the medium utilized. But it's hella fun trying to teached yerself ta get un-dumbified!

Castlevania: Portait of Ruin

After such happy, heart-warming titles like Harmony of Dissonence and Aria of Sorrow, the Castlevania series takes a plunge into despair with Portait of Ruin...which put a big 'ol smile on our faces, just because it was so dang good! Not sure where the "hillbilly" writing voice is coming from, but I'm hoping it stops before I get to the Metroid Prime: Hunters write up, cuz we know Samus ain't got a shotgun in the back of her spaceship window. No siree. It's a dad-gummed plasma rifle.

Metroid Prime: Hunters

We originally thought making Metroid a FPS was a bad idea, but we loved it on the Cube. Then we thought making Metroid Prime: Hunters a FPS on the DS and making people play with the stylus, was a bad idea, but once again, our instincts were sadly incorrect. All of the action and exploration has been retained in Hunters and DS owners are well-advised to lock and load.
