Sissel’s night isn’t going very well. He wakes up in a garbage dump. He can’t remember anything, not even his own name. Oh, and he’s dead. The one advantage he has in this scenario is his power to “trick” objects he possesses. Soon, he encounters another spirit, Ray, who happens to be possessing a lamp (a Ray of light in the darkness, if you will) who tells him ...

Infendo Spotlight: Dragon Warrior Monsters

Dragon Warrior Monsters was a Gameboy title released by Enix in 1998/2000. It was the first spinoff in the Dragon Quest series of games, featuring many of the same monsters from those titles, with the twist that in this game, you tame and battle the monsters. It would be easy to write this game off as a Pokemon knock-off, but Monsters did many things to differentiate itself from the most famous mo...

You’re Tearing Mii Apart

It’s not very often that Nintendo kills one of their franchises. F-Zero is comatose, but every now and then it comes out long enough to say “I’m still alive!” before it falls back into obscurity (I don’t care, the Nintendoland game was fun). Metroid is getting a revival, and every other major Nintendo IP is referenced or has some sort of game available on the market. ...

Ports… Ports Everywhere…

A year ago I wanted Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition baaaaad. I mean, I was jonesing hard, man. The first version for the Wii U was a fantastic experience, and Legends on the 3DS only added to the amazement. There were reasons to play both: from a gameplay perspective, Legends was the clear winner, but being on the 3DS certainly held it back from a technical standpoint. And so, my moments betwee...
