Review: Borderlands 2 Demake

If you're a Borderlands fan or an old school 16-bit fan or just love playing free flash games, then you must try this free-to-play Borderlands 2 Demake! And guess what? It doesn't have those disgusting pop-up ads covering your screen or must-buy-weapons-with-RL-money crap.

The control functions are simply great, arrow keys to move around and the space bar to shoot; even a 3 year old could play this game. The first thing was to select a character, and each character had different stats. I preferred using Axton as he had the best overall stats that worked well for my noob gaming-ness.

Mutant Mudds Demo

When sifting through the demos in the Nintendo eShop, I came across this adorable little platformer called Mutant Mudds. From the screenshots shown in this post, you can see that it has a sorta; cute retro feel about it. It's a generic platform game, no doubt about it, but the way it's played and how the controls are designed and handled; you could say, Mutant Mudds was built perfectly for the 3DS.

This game - even though a demo, was one of the first games I've played that was better off being played with the 3D turned on. Better with 3D turned on?! Chaotic! Yep, this shocked me too.

The game consisted of the usual platform normality to it... but also contained a foreground platform and a background platform you could jump across to! 3D being turned on (for once), really helped on distinguishing the placements of the monsters and the different platforms. If the monsters were right in front of you - you can blast them away with your bubble looking gun or jet-pack your way over them, but if in the background or foreground then, they were not to be worried about.

Mario Kart 7 Winning Guide

In this post, I'm going to try and write a type of guide on things you can do to come first in Mario Kart 7 (MK7, no I am not referring to Mortal Kombat 7). I'm no pro at this game; just an everyday player, that managed to get the three stars next to my name, so don't get all rage face on me if you've read this and are still losing. You simply just need to practice more or - settle on being a gaming noob in general. Jks.

Review: Mario Kart 7

It is finally done, I've finally come first in all the tracks. It took a freaking long time but its done and dusted. So what of it? What did I truly think of the game?

In one obscure word.. Frustratingly-fucking-tastic!

Toad getting Inked looks BADASS!

I'll start with the graphics. Really, there isn't much to say about the graphics of MK7. I guess it's the best MK7 and Nintendo 3DS graphics will ever go... Not totally detailed like other handheld gaming consoles *cough, Vita*  but simply satisfying - I love it, it's Mario and it's good. In my opinion, gameplay will always beat graphics. The 3D-ness was pretty leet but the majority of the time, I had it turned off for more game time and less headaches. The MK7 graphics I felt, wasn't a huge step up from the older and other Mario Kart games, but hey, that's no surprise from the almighty Nintendo franchise.
