When I was in college and writing game reviews for The Dallas Morning News, the first E3 I went to was when Nintendo was going to release Pokémon in the US for the first time.  I knew it would be a big hit, so I requested to my editor that I be in charge of […]

Take care of a lovable pup in Furiends, a free-to-play game for iOS devices (reviewed on iPad here).  Furiends is an AR game, and AR stands for Augmented Reality.  What this means is that the game uses the camera on your mobile device and places objects over the image so it looks like they are […]

The joy of flight is always a highlight in many a video game.  Remember when you first got an airship in a Final Fantasy game?  Or the wing cap in Mario 64?  How about flying with feathers in Banjo-Kazooie?  Speaking of feathers, here’s a game that’s nothing but flying as a bird, as you soar […]

My latest batch of amiibo figures are a trio of echo fighters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Ken, Princess Daisy, and Young Link.  Actually I’m not sure if Young Link is considered an echo fighter, as I don’t get into the nitty gritty semantics and details of Smash Bros.  But anyway, let’s take a look […]
