Pokemon White 2 Review

Hi guys, a little while back I did a review of Pokémon White. I only recently got around to playing the sequel, Pokémon White 2.

Pokemon White 2

Console: DS
Should I play it? If you’re a Pokémon fan, yeah, why not, if you’re a new player, I would stick to one of the current gen main series games (at the time that is X&Y)
Best part about it: Access to different Pokémon than White offered

Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time Review

Today is a sad day folks. It is my last ever Julian Kay Review (at least until Jules lends me more games ;)). Today’s review is Mario And Luigi: Partners in Time, from the same series as the great Superstar Saga.

Yoshi’s Island DS Review

A little while ago I played Yoshi’s Island for the GBA thanks to my friend Jules. Once again I’ve been given the chance to review a Yoshi game: Yoshi’s Island DS.

Compared to Yoshi’s Island for GBA? Much more variety, more fun
Compared to Yoshi Touch and Go for DS? Wayyyy better. That game is just not very good at all.

Advance Wars: Dual Strike Review

Thanks to funky musician Julian Kay for letting me play Advance Wars. He very kindly also allowed me to produce this Advance Wars: Dual Strike review. It’s funny because it’s Advance Wars for the DS and “Dual Strike” is like “DS” haha.

Console: DS
How is it different to Advance Wars? You can touch the screen although why you would want to is beyond me. Also, you can control two Commanding Officers at once hence “DUAL”.
Better or worse? I prefer it – there’s more variety of Commanding Officers to choose from.

Things that I hate in games

Hi guys, let’s go on a rant about things that I hate in games!

By all means, a game isn’t bad if it features it, but man it can make it a hell of a lot worse!

If anyone can think of anything else they hate and primary examples, go right ahead!

Rusty Bucket Bay Banjo Kazooie

I’m looking at you Underwater Levels!

Best character? Depends. I instantly think of Slippy because he’s easiest tom use.
