Review: Talking Phrasebook (3DS eShop)

Talking Phrasebook (3DS eShop)

It's translation time

Call us pessimistic, but we think it's fair to say that travelling abroad can be a pretty stressful experience. Sure, the exotic locales and sunny weather is always worth it in the end, but making the trip often takes no shortage of patience and more than a few embarrassing attempts to drag up half-remembered phrases in the...

Two Tetris Downloads to be Removed from the 3DS eShop in Europe

Blocks dropped

Occasionally we see some enjoyable titles disappear from Nintendo's download stores, often retro titles and likely the result of a licensing issue.

Chat-A-Lot (3DS eShop)

Textual healing or vocal underperformity?

Want to turn your 3DS into a social device that allows you and your friends to exchange text messages and partake in voice chat while collaborating on doodles? That’s the experience that Chat-A-Lot advertises, and while it delivers in some regards, overall this simple application falls very flat. Part of...

Review: Picross e5 (3DS eShop)

Picross e5 (3DS eShop)

Another pack of Picross

While the first few Picross e games mixed things up a little with slightly different modes each time, the previous game in the series — Picross e4 — didn't do anything unique; it simply brought back all of those previous special modes. Picross e5 also plays it safe and is essentially an expansion of the previous game,...

Image & Form Reveals That Steam Powered Giraffe is Producing the SteamWorld Heist Soundtrack

Will appear in-game, too

SteamWorld Dig, the 3DS eShop title — since ported to other platforms including Wii U — propelled Image & Form to prominence among Nintendo gamers and the wider gaming community, so there'll be plenty of attention on the upcoming SteamWorld Heist. Less a sequel and more of a spin-off, it sees the steam-driven robots...

Safari Quest (3DS eShop)

Safari Meh-st

As consumers of entertainment, we all generally gravitate towards the extreme sides of the spectrum. When a product is amazing, it's really amazing — and we can't say enough about it. When a product is awful, it's really awful — and we're going to let everyone know. That's why it's such a disappointment when a product falls...
