Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia is the third and final episode of the Chronicles franchise. A franchise that already brought us to China and India. Russia is an entirely different experience since we play during a darker era. Mother Russia is about to lose its last Tsar to the Templars and it’s up to assassin Nikolai to rescue and guard the valuable princess Anastasia. Prepare for a dark and gritty Assassin’s Creed story!
Super Mario Galaxy released back in 2007 on Wii but came to the Wii U’ eShop last week.

Firewatch is a game that at first looks like a quirky little romp. And while that is partly true the game does a lot more than that. It’s a story that deals with some interesting themes and above all makes the player feel just a bit paranoid. It’s an interesting narrative but is there enough to make the experience worth it?
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 marks the end of a gorgeous era. The Ninja Storm games spanned multiple console generations and delivered true Naruto happiness to its players. Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 marks the end of the franchise and is CyberConnect 2’ goodbye to their beloved franchise. It still follows the path of its predecessors but it’s safe to say that Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 is the most perfect Narotu game, one you simply need to play.
Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise has been a true success to date, the games are still selling like hotcakes and sequels are being made regularly. It must hurt a company like Square Enix to see this success so they try to mimic the Monster Hunter formula in their own Final Fantasy: Explorers game for Nintendo 3DS. On paper it sounds smart, the Final Fantasy universe is filled with interesting monster to hunt, but this first attempt to create a ‘Final Fantasy Hunter’ isn’t that successful yet.
Make sure your people have access to education! And keep every political group in your imaginary country as happy as possible! And piss of the US! Yay! Rogue State is a ‘geopolitical strategy game’ developed by Little Red Dog Games, and published by Black Shell Media, and even though the game is still in beta, it offers a new experience to gamers who are used to managing cities, countries, or even worlds. It’s also a thinly veiled comment on Iran and the troubles in the Middle East. *cough* dictators *cough*.
LEGO – a word that includes so much more than 4 letters. The LEGO- universe succeeded in transforming big franchise such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, …etc. into popular video games due to their simplicity and comical undertone. They made every franchise into their own thing and no matter what age you have, you insert the game disc, relax, play and enjoy.
Will LEGO Avengers be any different ? Let’s find out.
We’ve seen a lot of great indie games releasing on the Wii U’s eShop the past years. Nintendo’s virtual store is a true success and it seems like a lot of developers are willing to port or create unique games for the platform. Shadow Puppeteer originally launched on PC back in 2014 but made it to the eShop this year. It’s great to have games like this on Wii U, although it’s not perfect, it offers a unique kind of fun.
A shallow Tech-demo…
Writer’s note: This was supposed to be a quick pit-stop for my reviews but life happened. Anyway There isn’t much to say about this one. It’s a spin-off of WarioWare and I treated it as such. It’s not WarioWare I know that and approached the game with that in mind.
Last year, 10tons games brought us a solid ‘match three’ game with Sparkle: Unleashed. The game was pretty solid but we didn’t like everything. If you want to learn more about Sparkle: Unleashed, be sure to read our original review. That being said, we’re here to talk about the sequel, Sparkle 2 now. Sparkle 2 follows the same path as its predecessor but manages to innovate and optimize the gameplay.
