Oh 2002, the last year I played video games until I came running back in 2011. One of the last games I remembered dedicating hours and hours of my time towards Metroid Fusion, a 10 year sequel to the acclaimed Super Metroid. While I have memories of playing Super on the SNES, my first true Metroid game starts with Fusion. Staying up till the morning finding all the secrets in the game. It’s been over ten years since I’ve played this game and thanks to the Wii U I’m able to revisit a childhood memory. Let’s see if the baby holds up after a decade of waiting!

The world of indie games, a land filled with promise of hope and wonder. A wonderful world that is said to be bursting with nostalgia of times past. However with that promise a gamer can still find that sadly some indie games are not what they hoped to be. Whether that’s inexperience, or just wanting to cash in the search to find a great game in the independent market is a tough one. Well I’m here to tell you about one that has taken the gaming community by storm. A game that is a true diamond in the rough, I present my review for Shovel Knight!
Persona 4: Golden

It starts off as your uncle and cousin picking you up and showing you around a bit of the town you’ll be staying in for the year. You then make friends with the locals of Chie Satonaka, Yosuke Hanamura, and Yukiko Amagi at the new school whom don’t believe your oddly new acquired powers to enter the television. You then find a Bear who escorts you to varying dungeons to rescue anyone who falls into the TV with the powers of their various Personas to get closer to the truth behind the murders and kidnappings.

Mortal Kombat (9)
Spear-heading its way to your collection
Mortal Kombat, released back in April of 2011, still shows great promise in the fighting genre as it attempts to do more than others. While other fighting games may tack on a story as an afterthought, Mortal Kombat has always made more of an attempt to create a definitive story within its games. For the purposes of this review, I will be writing about the Playstation 3 and the Playstation Vita versions of the game.
It’s now time to move onto the next game in the Mega Man X franchise, and oh boy I’m not even going to lie folks this is possibly the most negative I will be about a video game. Mega Man X did such a great job of pushing the Mega Man name forward and X2 added to it’s greatness. X3 is a great example of a series taking five steps backwards. Since this game had so many ports, due to not owning a Super Nintendo I played this off the Mega Man X collection, so I played the PC version. I’ll get into specifics, but let’s start this game!
