Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective iOS Review

Image
Released originally on the Nintendo DS, Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective makes its way onto the iOS platform. Made by the same creator who brought us the Phoenix Wright series on the DS, this game has the similar kind of vibe going for it but instead of courtrooms and objections, it features ghosts and tricks! Being available in HD on the iPad this game makes a fine port of the original. I had played this game for the first time on the iPad mini and could not put it down for a second.

Street Fighter X Tekken Vita Review

Image
The ability to play our favorite Street Fighter and Tekken characters on a handheld sounds awesome! Street Fighter X Tekken is a fighting game (in case you didn't already know) which features characters from both the Street Fighter universe and the Tekken universe.  For a long time both these two games have been rivaling each other in terms of being the favorite game among fighting game fans, but now they have teamed up to give what fans have been craving for all this time.  The real question that needs to be asked is whether or now this mash-up will really work or not.

The Last Story Wii Review

Image
Having recently played this in HD on the Wii U, there are so many things wanting this to not be the last story. The Last Story was released on the Wii console in Europe in February 2012. Some consider this game to be among the top RPG games ever made for the Wii generation. Having never played this on the original Wii console I got my copy just in time to play it on my recently bought Wii U console. The benefits of playing Wii games on the Wii U console are that the games are all in HD so we can enjoy sharper graphics in high definition.
