• Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena (DS)

    I decided to write a review recently, but I didn't know which game to write a review for. So I closed my eyes, went to my gaming shelf, and picked out a game at random. Unfortunately, I forgot that I

  • The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks (DS)

    This might just be the most objective review of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks ever written. That's because I'm not so in love with any of the other Zelda games that I'm extra-critical or extra-fo
