Dimensions recaptures enough of Geometry Wars' thrills to stand as the best new dual-joystick shooter in quite a while.
The little mushroom man finally gets his name on the marquee, and the result is a charming, unique, and puzzle-heavy adventure.
Nintendo's all-stars assemble once again, resulting in one of the best reasons to own a Wii U (and eight GameCube controllers).
@mrmazz Godzilla: Save the Earth. The only one that really matters. But this is all I can give away.
I can confirm that during Iron Galaxy's show we will be playing the Godzilla wrestling game.
So it has early 90's Godzilla and new Godzilla? The wrestling games are a guilty pleasure of mine.
I was so confused on what to do with the donkey when I caught it first.
I mean, the majority of the demographic is male. Women tend to be more likable and friendly. Even to other women in a lot of cases. It's why most servers at restaurants are women and the men are hidden away in the back making the food. I feel like "exploited" tends to suggest the woman is getting a negative outcome to the job. Without knowing their side of the story, I assume they dig being on camera and don't mind that the majority of people like looking at a pretty face instead of some overweight dude.
Non of those women are (for lack of better term) "outrageously sexy". They're all normal looking pretty women. It isn't like Polygon is spending tons of time getting their girl caked in make up and showing off cleavage. Plus, most of us can admit this is a largely male dominated industry. So there's nothing wrong with putting females in the spotlight if your intention is to de-Sausage Party this industry a bit.
But all the Chobot and Olivia Munn bullshit back in the day was embarrassing.
Great list Steve! Really good read. I also feel I've seen several people who weren't really into Pokémon but got a lot more invested this time around, but I do see where you're coming from with that.
Also, just a heads up, you wrote "swang song" in the first entry.
Thanks for catching that!
The only qualm I have with this list was in text and it's when you said that Pokemon X/Y isn't going to bring in any new people.
The point being that it's a franchise geared towrads kids that goes from strength to strength with every iteration and has been around for about 15 years. They're pulling in new people, those people just happen to be under 10 years old.
That aside, I was in exactly the same boat as you and fucking *loved* Pokemon X. And by and large, a pretty solid list, too.
True. When I write things here I'm generally speaking to people that use this site which are typically not children. But yeah, should've specified.
That game fucking screams to be on a Vita. Did they confirm that it's coming? I interviewed the guy who made the game and he kinda said it was coming without actually saying it.
Use your keyboard!
