Chandelure Is Coming to Pokkén Tournament

Posted by | News | No Comments

Pokkén Tournament is an upcoming game for the Wii U that combines the fighting game Tekken and the kid-friendly Pokémon. In anticipation of the game’s release in July, the developers have been one-by-one announcing new Pokémon that will appear in the game. Earlier this week, we’ve received confirmation that Mewtwo, Braixen, and Garchomp will be added to the roster.

Today we learned that the Ghost/Fire Pokémon Chandelure is joining, too!

Chandelure is a kind of weird choice for a fighting game like Pokkén because it doesn’t use physical attacks. The super weird-but-awesome chandelier-esque creature uses hypnosis to directly attack its opponents spirits. Spooky. It will be interesting to see how Pokkén works this technique into its gameplay.

I have my suspicions that most people would stay six-hundred and sixty-six (666) feet away from a game with such a foreboding title. Fortunately, I don’t scare all that easily. So I had no issues giving indie title Extreme Exorcism a whirl. I came away pleasantly surprised with its frenetic, “kill or be killed” pace and its retro-cool pixel art style that sets the spooky tone rather well. Read More

Leonardo’s Cat Review: There’s More Than One Way to Launch a Cat

Posted by | Mobile, Reviews | No Comments

The newest app from StoryToys, Leonardo’s Cat, had to advertise just one thing to get me to buy it immediately: narration by Patrick Stewart. It turns out that in addition to the magnificent voiceover work you’d expect from Stewart, the game itself is an enchanting app for both parents and kids.

Your job in Leonardo’s Cat is to get the title feline, Scungilli, from point A to point B in order to fetch all of the pieces of Leonardo’s missing invention. Read More
