Game Boy Advance

Metroid Fusion

Game Description: Metroid Fusion is a side-scrolling action game that's more in line with the series' NES origin than its GameCube contemporary, the first-person action game Metroid Prime. In this one, players take the bounty hunter Samus on an extermination mission through a research facility to kill X parasites--nasty creatures that absorb and assimilate the powers of their host. After she survived an X attack through the use of a vaccine made with X parasite DNA, she can now absorb the parasites to regain health and obtain special powers, like the morph ball, space jump, and wave beam. The problem is that the parasites are quickly making their way through the research lab's many dangerous projects and subsuming their abilities.

Video: Super Mario rescues the Princess "UNCENSORED"

Videos from Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy! have been on YouTube for months, but they were censored versions of what would ultimately become a DVD/Blu-Ray release. That DVD/Blu-Ray launched this month (May 12th) and some of the uncensored videos were put on YouTube.

The content of the video is essentially the same, but now Mario is dropping F-bombs.

(Parental Discretion is advised.)

Mazes of Fate – Review

Though I can see what the developers were going for, the dungeon-crawl genre comes pre-loaded with a few hurdles to get over, and anyone attempting to pull it off successfully has to absolutely nail the mechanics or drown the player with charm in order to avoid turning out something that's too trudging and tedious to bear. Although it's not terrible in any aspect, this game simply fails to do either.

Mazes of Fate

Game Description: Mazes of Fate is a first-person role-playing game for the Game Boy Advance handheld console. The game takes players into a dark fantasy world facing divine punishment. The ancient gods, disgusted by humanity's pride, intend to wipe mankind out and replace it with a new, more submissive race of goat-men. One party of adventurers is left to make the ultimate choice. Should they fight back against overwhelming odds, or sentence humanity to a fate that may be worse than death?

Yggdra Union

Game Description: Yggdra Union is a strategy/RPG card-based game which allows you to engage in fantasy styled tactical battles. Ruled by a royal family said to be descendants of the gods themselves, Fantasinia is a prosperous and peaceful land—until the peace is shattered by the invading forces of the Empire of Bronkia. Bronkia's Imperial Army cuts a bloody swath through the people of Fantasinia and the Royal Armies of King Ordeene. Amidst the chaos, a young woman escapes from the besieged capital of Partina—a woman with innocence in her face, and a sword in her hand. The girl's name is Princess Yggdra, the last surviving member of the royal family. Character design by manga artist Satoko Kiyuzuki and card design by Sunaho Tobe, character designer of Riviera: The Promised Land!

Yggdra Union – Review

Read review of Yggdra Union
Yggdra Union
from superb developer Sting could be described as the lovechild of the Saturn's seminal and the super-popular series, but to leave it at that would be doing both game and developers a disservice. Not only has Sting captured the essence of what makes those two games great, they've added their own unique spin to create something freshly original while being familiar enough for fans of the genre to jump right in.
