The Intro to Luigi’s Mansion 3 Showcases the Super Mario Universe in a New Light

[NOTE: I try my best to avoid spoilers]

Confession: I’m not very far in Luigi’s Mansion 3. Was hoping to be done before the launch, but life has a funny way of stifling one’s gaming time. For now, it takes a seat at the top of my backlog as Pokemon Sword and Shield take precedence. From the bit I’ve played, I can definitively tell you this one thing: its opening sequence is really special.

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Review

I don’t think we’re in Hyrule anymore.

Washed ashore after his ship is struck by lightning, Link finds himself stranded on the mysterious Koholint Island. His only chance of returning home is to collect all eight instruments and wake up the Wind Fish. Does The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening do enough to defy the old adage, “There’s no place like home?”

Fumbling Through the First Dungeon in Moonlighter

(NOTE: This post contains mild spoilers for the first dungeon of Moonlighter)

Billed to me as part Legend of Zelda, part roguelike, and part management sim, Moonlighter has been on my radar for quite some time. However, due to life getting in the way, the only time I’ve had to play it was a one-week pocket of time between Super Mario Maker 2 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Thus far, I really enjoy what I’ve played. Be that as it may, I’ve struggled to get a grip on playing the game the right way. It feels like I should be much farther along relative to the time I’ve spent with it.

GameCube Week | Going Back to Metroid Prime Almost 20 Years Later

GameCube Week continues on In Third Person! This time, I morph ball roll my way back to Metroid Prime!


Some games age like fine wine. You can pick up a Gameboy today – or 100 years from now – and still have just as much fun with Tetris as players did when it was first released in the 1980s. Other games lose their sheen faster than you would hope. Have you played Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo 64 recently? Despite being revolutionary for its time, advents in the shooter genre have rendered it obsolete. It’s only real value now is nostalgia, which it admittedly has in spades.

Going back to Metroid Prime recently proved to be an interest test of its staying power. Revolutionary in its own right, Samus’ debut on the GameCube successfully translated its 2D exploration roots into the third dimension. How much of the experience still stands strong almost 20 years later? I played it for a few hours on stream to find out.
