Revisiting Pikmin 3: A Series Best With Room For Improvement Revisiting Pikmin 3: A Series Best With Room For Improvement

In my previous Pikmin retrospectives, I talked a lot about how important multitasking is to the series and how Pikmin 2 went too far to bend over backwards to fix complaints about the original by decreasing the emphasis on it.

I wrote a post with my conflicted initial impressions, but after writing the article and spending more time with the game learning some of the characters more, I found that despite its repetitive nature it was a very…

If A Mediocre Game Is Fun, Is It Still A Mediocre Game? Thoughts on Marvel: Powers United VR If A Mediocre Game Is Fun, Is It Still A Mediocre Game? Thoughts on Marvel: Powers United VR

Last week, Oculus Studios and Sanzaru Games released Marvel: Powers United VR exclusively for the Oculus Rift. Oculus had noted it was one of the their largest investments in a single game yet and it was to my knowledge their first with an IP. The game, however, was met with mixed reviews with critics calling the game…
