Retro Review – Metroid II: Return of Samus (GB)

First a little background information: Metroid II was my introduction to the Metroid franchise. My first time playing it was way back in the day on the original Game Boy as a kid. My parents gave me a Game Boy because every summer we would go on long road trips from Northern California to Southern California to visit my grandparents. Being in a car for 8 hours a day provides lots of free time for ...

How to Get Every Badge in ARMS

Version 3.2.0 of ARMS brought a brand new feature to the ever-growing fighting game for the Nintendo Switch: an in-game achievement system called badges. At present we’ve been able to dig up dirt on 123 different badges, but there may be more out there that are undiscovered. If you’ve found a super-secret badge, let us know in the comments so we can add it to the list!           Fixed ...

Nugget of Wisdom: A Chicken Wiggle Review

At $14.99, for all the content it offers both online and offline, Chicken Wiggle is a steal, and a must have for any 3DS owner, new or lapsed. While I personally find the level editor overwhelming, there is a large community who evidently does not, and they are continuously creating new levels that are free to download.

Nugget of Wisdom: A Chicken Wiggle Review

By Steve Peacock There are a few developers I follow very closely. Yacht Club Games (Shovel Knight) and Gajin Games (Bit.Trip series) are two of the three that come to mind right off the bat. The one we are going to focus on today, Atooi, founded by Jools Watsham, is another of those devs. He is best known for Mutant Mudds, Mutant Mudds Super Challenge, and Xeodrifter. He is one of those devs that...

Jest in Time: A Look Back at the Clowns of Nintendo

Lola Pop, the newest addition to ARMS, might have you thinking Nintendo’s just clowning around with their character design. But a look back at Nintendo’s long game design history actually reveals an affinity for these face-painted juggalos. Here’s a look back at some big-time big-top dwellers from Nintendo’s lineup. MAD CLOWN – SUPER PUNCH OUT Don’t let ARMS tri...

A Tale of Two RPGs: A Brief Analysis of the Mario RPG Franchise

Before we begin, please note that all reviews are subjective and indicative of individual preference. While I have attempted to collect an un-biased aggregate scoring for each game mentioned in this article, nothing is absolute when discussing review scores. Everyone knows Mario. Everyone. The Mario franchise is the best-selling game franchise of all time, with over 528 million copies sold. Howeve...

Reviews Hub Infendo Review – Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is a creative concept, and a game that plays very well. It's biggest shortcoming is that for such a wacky fusion of two different game universes, there really isn't much being done creatively. Sure, there are the aforementioned boss battles and a handful of fun environmental scenes, but overall it feels like a missed opportunity. It's an enjoyable game, it's funny, ...

Infendo Review – Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle

Banjo & Kazooie. ToeJam & Earl. Mario and… Rabbids!? No, this isn’t a parallel universe, and NO, you aren’t having the world’s tamest fever dream. Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is very much a real game exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, and it happens to fill a currently very-empty void in the Switch’s gaming library. Not only is this game technically the ...

My Games Are Better Than Yours: Eugene’s Top 10 List of Games That Don’t Suck

Coming up with a list of ‘Best’ or ‘Top’ anything can be tricky. Just listen to Episode 400. For one, there isn’t a person on the planet who has played EVERYTHING, including the Infendo crew. While I might think a game such as Illusion of Gaia deserves top praise on any list, the vast majority of people don’t know what it is, or simply haven’t played it. Additionally, a beloved game such as Breath...

Steve Peacock’s Top 25 Favorite Nintendo Games

The idea for this article stemmed from Infendo Radio Episode 400. If you have not listened to that show….why are you here? Go listen! It was fantastic. The group had the idea to do an individual top 25 list, and I was the first one to say that sounded like a great idea. I was not able to be on 400, and was very disappointed by some of the games that got cut. For those of you that know me, you will...
