Metroid Prime 2: Echoes

It’s not a stretch to say that Metroid Prime was perhaps the most important game released in the Gamecube’s lifespan. While other games proved to be more popular, such as Smash Bros Melee and Resident Evil 4, Prime was not only the biggest risk for Nintendo, but also its greatest success. More than anything, the […]

Soul Calibur II

When you hear the word “Namco”, what do you think of? Pac Man? Galaga? Tekken? Maybe Time Crisis, or how about Ridge Racer? Yes, all of these are classics of arcades everywhere, being revived in a big way for….err, wait. That meme doesn’t belong here. Looking at that list, Namco has quite the venerable repertoire, […]

Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg

Now how fun can it be running around in a chicken suit handling an egg? Well, take it from a guy running around with panties on his head fondling men, quite fun actually. Billy Hatcher and The Giant Egg is Sonic Team’s new line of platform game, starring Billy, a young boy becoming a man […]

Alien Hominid

Alien Hominid harkens back to the loose run-n-gun game play found in games such as Contra or Metal Slug. Sure, it’s derivative, but the cheap thrills it provides are something almost lost in the modern era of gaming. What started as a simple flash game found at newgrounds.com is now a full scale console action […]

Mario Power Tennis

Of what little I played of Mario Tennis for the N64, I found it to be a decent but slightly annoying game. However, I came to this game with high expectations that Camelot had put together a quality game. It resembles Mario Gold: Toadstool Tour in many ways: the roster of characters, quality of graphics, […]

Resident Evil 4

‘Survival Horror’ has come along way since the introduction of the Resident Evil series. New games, ideas, and innovations have either failed or succeed. But the Resident Evil series has endured and remains the paramount of the genre and that which others in the genre are measured. However, if you called Resident Evil 4 a […]

Metroid Prime: Second Thoughts

I was initially reluctant to play this game simply because it was 3D, and a first person shooter. To me, that wasn’t Metroid, so I ignored the praise it received and never played the title outside of a couple demo run-throughs and playing small parts at a friends house. I thought the scanning looked tedious, […]

Super Monkey Ball 2

Super Monkey Ball 2 adds a lot to the multiplayer phenomenon that the original created. But unfortunately most of the changes and additions hinder it compared to the original. The single player experience is slightly enhanced with the addition of a story mode. However, the level design is not quite up to par with the […]

Super Monkey Ball

Super Monkey Ball came in under the radar early in the GameCube’s life. It quickly gained a cult following and became known as one of the greatest multiplayer games available. The concept is simple, yet very odd. You play as monkeys that are trapped inside of protective balls, and you roll them around. There are […]

Metroid Prime

When Nintendo unveiled the first previews of Metroid Prime they started a chain of controversy surrounding their new GameCube games. The Metroid series had only been 2D platformers until this point, and the thought of a 3D Metroid from the first person perspective scared and angered many gamers. Of course, there is a time for […]
