    Is 'Master Research' Next for 'Pokémon Go'?

    Since the game first launched, many new features and mechanics have been added to the ever-popular mobile app game, Pokémon Go. Nearly a year ago research tasks were added, and they introduced a new way for a Pokémon trainer to increase their chances of some pretty rare Pokémon to add to their collection of pocket monsters.

    'Metroid: Samus Returns' Review

    'Metroid: Samus Returns' Review

    The Metroid franchise is one that Nintendo doesn’t quite seem to understand. There is an incredible consistency of quality throughout the entire series, save for a small handful of games fans don’t want to talk about, but in terms of the mainline 2D series and the Prime trilogy, there’s a stellar presence that could honestly put Mario and Zelda to shame. Metroid is one of the black sheep franchises Nintendo has, and they have difficulty marketing each game with increasingly less than ideal sales since Prime 2, so they unfortunately have repeatedly had to put the franchise on the shelf for a while. Thankfully, in full force, Nintendo has a new Prime game on its way and now a new 2D entry to give the constantly salivating fanbase.

    'Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia'

    After around a year of my 3DS being broken, I finally got my hands on a working one. Going through my games, I figured I’d do another run through of the classic DS title Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. Did I regret it? Not even a little bit.

    The Evolution of 'Mario Kart'

    Mario Kart is a game we all know and love, and with the latest release of the game Mario Kart 8 Deluxe selling just under 10 million copies, it is safe to say that this classic game is still much adored by gamers around the globe. Despite the popularity of the game, not everyone is aware of the long history that this game has and how much it has changed since the initial release back in 1992. Let's take a trip back in time, or as Mario would say, Lets-a-go!
