All the way back in 2011 I reviewed a little DSiWare game from UK developer Tanukii Studios called Go! Go! Kokopolo. I called the game a mix between Pac-Man and Cat and Mouse, a description I thought was very fitting. In April of 2012 we showed off some of the first character art for the game’s sequel Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D. Now, nearly four years later the game has finally been released and if you liked that first game you’ll love this one.

The set, which will retail for $59.99, will include … Continue reading Details For Upcoming Fire Emblem Limited Edition
The Yoshi’s Island series has always been one of my favorite platforming series. They give you a completely different feel for a platformer than Nintendo’s more famous plumber does. The games always encouraged exploration and precision to me more than Mario games did. I also really liked Kirby’s Epic Yarn. The game was beautiful on the Wii. When I heard that Yoshi’s Island and Kirby’s Epic Yarn were getting together in the form of Yoshi’s Woolly World I was excited. That game was also really, really good. Now we’re getting the chance to take that game with us wherever we go in a 3DS port of the game. That game is also really, really good.
There are few franchises that cause me to clear my calendar of every other video game I’m playing than Dragon Quest. January was a very busy month for game releases (thanks, Sega), but I knew I had to have time to devote all my attention to Dragon Quest VIII, and I did. For good reason. The game is fantastic.
In the game you play as a nameless Hero (that you get to give a name) who is a member of the Royal Guard for King Trode. The King and his daughter have been cursed by a jester named Dhoulmagus and turned into a troll and a horse respectively. You accompany the king, along with a friend named Yangus, to discover the whereabouts of Dhoulmagus, defeat him and lift the curse on the king.

The 3DS has steadily been receiving its share of games that were originally featured on the Wii U. Games like Hyrule Warriors, Rhythm Heaven, Xenoblade Chronicles and Super Mario Maker are showing the system is capable of handling the same experiences as its bigger brother. The next game to get that treatment will be released on February 3rd in the form of Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World.
Nintendo released a demo of the game yesterday that gives you access to two of the game’s early levels. While they’re not pixel perfect remakes of the previous game they do show off that the port is very faithful to the original while making changes and adjustments where needed.

The game, which was first released on Wii U, will be seeing release on 3DS on February 3rd. This new trailer shows off some of the 3DS exclusive functionality featured.
