Fanatical Five | Five Reasons to Buy a Wii U in 2014

by James Wynneon October 22, 2014
The Wii U was obviously a misfire.

Hyrule Warriors Review | 70% Musou, 30% Zelda, 100% Fun

by James Wynneon September 30, 2014
Hyrule Warriors is definitely a Warriors game, but it does something that rarely happens in gaming today: A crossover that’s more than just a skin.
