REVIEW: DUCKTALES: REMASTERED (Wii U)

Sing it with me now: DuckTales, Wii U! The PS3/Xbox 360/Wii era of consoles brought us many retro revivals, whether it was from classic games on Nintendo’s Virtual Console service, long-lost arcade classics like Konami’s X-Men and The Simpsons or full on reimaginings such as Ubisoft’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time Re-Shelled. One of the most surprising remakes that was…

REVIEW: DUCKTALES 2 (NES/PS4/GAME BOY)

NOTE: Not played on the original NES, but on the PS4 version from the Disney Afternoon Collection. Capcom is no stranger to sequels: Mega Man had six entries alone on the NES and your head would probably start spinning trying to recall all the sequels, spin-offs, remasters and adjective themed updates for the Street Fighter franchise.

REVIEW: DUCKTALES (NES/GAME BOY)

In 1952, writer/artist Carl Barks introduced the world to Uncle Scrooge, an obscenely wealthy adventurer from the city of Duckburg.

REVIEW: THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (NINTENDO DS)

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and 2011’s Spider-Man: Edge of Time on the Nintendo DS, despite being unique experiences from their console counterparts, have a lot in common. Both failed to live up to the quality of their previous outings, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, though in the case of the DS game the development from Dimensions to Edge of Time had a developer change with Newfoundland based Other…

REVIEW: SPIDER-MAN: FRIEND OR FOE (NINTENDO DS)

The Spider-Man games on the DS had a bit of a yo-yo thing happening starting out: Spider-Man 2 was not really that great, but Ultimate Spider-Man was terrific; Spider-Man: Battle for New York was a poor man’s attempt at trying to duplicate the quality of Ultimate Spider-Man but Spider-Man 3 returned things to form with a unique take on the open-world genre in two-dimensions and…
