The Legend Of Zelda review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** The Legend Of Zelda review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of The Legend Of Zelda on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U developed and published by Nintendo. All legends start somewhere. Originally released to the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1987, this was the starting point for the most beloved legend in gaming—Nintendo’s masterful Legend of Zelda. The original game, though dated in many ways, has aged incredibly well. And most incredible of all is how much it truly has in common with later Zelda classics, like Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword. Playing as the boy hero Link, players are sent off on their own in Hyrule, a massive open world that was truly unprecedented in video games 1987. There’s no direction or guidance given, and to conquer the evil plaguing this land, players must apply real-world logic and problem-solving skills. They must talk to the right people, find the right items and go to the right places. Either that or get a map. The Legend of Zelda is a single-player gaming masterpiece, and is now available on the Wii U’s eShop. This video review features video gameplay footage of The Legend Of Zelda on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Donkey Kong, Jr. review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** Donkey Kong, Jr. review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Donkey Kong, Jr. on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U developed and published by Nintendo. Being a sequel to one of the greatest games ever made is a tall task. Fortunately, Donkey Kong, Jr. is a monkey, so he’s not afraid of heights. This inventive platformer came only a year after the original Donkey Kong changed the landscape of gaming forever, yet Nintendo was already experimenting with this one. Donkey Kong, Jr. casts Mario as the villain, having captured Donkey Kong in the original game. Now, it’s up to Junior to rescue dear ol’ dad. The game builds on the mechanics of the original, but it also adds several elements that would come to define later Donkey Kong titles, such as Donkey Kong Country. Climbing is a focus of the gameplay, and the game also takes the series into a jungle setting. Donkey Kong, Jr. offers single-player and local multiplayer play, and it’s been released for several Nintendo consoles and digital services. This video review features video gameplay footage of Donkey Kong, Jr. on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Teleglitch review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Teleglitch for PC developed by Test3 Projects and published by Paradox Interactive. Teleglitch paints a dismal picture of just how far humanity will go to grasp a particularly interesting bit of technology. The Militech facility on a remote planet has gone completely off-the-grid; something's gone terribly wrong (and it might be linked to their bio-weapons program or to the long-distance teleportation tech they were working on at the time). No help is coming, as that'd cut into profits... kinda sucks, as you're stuck in that facility and you REALLY need help. This video review features video gameplay footage of Teleglitch for PC and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Not every element of Fable Anniversary holds up against its contemporaries, but it's an amusing and charming return to one of gaming's most delightful worlds.

Hack, Slash, Loot review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Hack, Slash, Loot for PC developed and published by David Williamson. Hack, Slash, Loot is quite nearly the platonic ideal of the roguelike: a turn-based, grid-based RPG with plenty of weapons and items to collect, hordes of monsters waiting behind every door of the dungeon, chests that may or may not be willing to eat you, even more monsters, random effects that make you think twice about quaffing that potion... oh, and more monsters. The goal: don't die. Easier said than done. And it all starts in one tiny little room. This video review features video gameplay footage of Hack, Slash, Loot for PC and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Donkey Kong review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** Donkey Kong review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Donkey Kong on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U developed and published by Nintendo. In 1981, video games were mostly defined by the arcades. Video games were things you put quarters into. These days, video games are a little different. They’re actually evolved toward movies, and in many ways, Donkey Kong is that one radical push that started that evolution. It was a carpenter, and his girlfriend, and a monkey. One of the greatest and most significant games ever made, Donkey Kong was a 2D platformer at the dawn of the age of 2D platformers. Its simple mechanics laid the foundation for many of the classics that would made the 1980s the golden age of video games. Mario’s girlfriend Pauline has been kidnapped by a villainous ape named Donkey Kong. The rest is history. Donkey Kong offers single and local multiplayer play, and it’s available in some variety on most Nintendo home consoles and digital services. This video review features video gameplay footage of Donkey Kong on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch has moments of comic brilliance, but much of it is uninspired, and it ends before it really even gets going.

Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi for Nintendo 3DS developed by Idea Factory and published by Aksys Games. Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi is your pocket-sized harem of pretty samurai boys, patrolling the lawless streets of 1860s Kyoto in search of more pectoral-revealing clothing. As a girl on a mission to save her abducted father, you join them (or, rather, you're abducted yourself and nearly killed before they have a change of heart) and engage in a largescale, branching military operation that changes with your decisions. This video review features video gameplay footage of Hakuoki: Memories of the Shinsengumi for Nintendo 3DS and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

NES Remix review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** NES Remix review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of NES Remix on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U developed and published by Nintendo. Revisit the games that defined a generation in this unique combination of 8-bit classics and WarioWare. NES Remix presents 16 of the most celebrated NES games in history, but deconstructed into strange, hyper-short microgames. Jump over three barrels in Donkey Kong, collect rupees in Zelda—many of the challenges are simply pulled from the classics. Where the game gets interesting is in the remixed challenges, which combine retro classics into surreal new mini-levels. Save Pauline from Donkey Kong, but…with Link? NES Remix features more than 200 challenges, each one more nostalgic than the last. Sampled games include Donkey Kong, Legend of Zelda, Ice Climber, Wrecking Crew, Excitebike and a few games starring plumbers. Weird, right? NES Remix is a single-player game only. This video review features video gameplay footage of NES Remix on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

The Guided Fate Paradox review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of The Guided Fate Paradox for PlayStation 3 developed by Nippon-Ichi Software and published by NIS America. The Guided Fate Paradox follows in the footsteps of Nippon-Ichi's PSP previous foray into roguelikes, Zettai Hero Project, by combining absolutely absurd premises with tough-as-nails gameplay. In this case, you're just a kid in high school, shopping for groceries... when suddenly, a cute maid strongarms you into playing the lottery and BAM. You're God. If that's tough to wrap your head around, don't worry: A couple hours of the demonically difficult dungeon crawling, and your brain will be reduced to a fine paste. Won't be any problem then. This video review features video gameplay footage of The Guided Fate Paradox for PS3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

Mighty Bomb Jack review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** Mighty Bomb Jack review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Mighty Bomb Jack on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U developed and published by Tecmo Koei. Originally released to arcades before coming to the Nintendo Entertainment System, Mighty Bomb Jack follows up the original Bomb Jack. Only this time, Jack has to do more than just collect all the bombs in a given room. This time, he’s on an adventure! Mighty Bomb Jack takes place inside an ancient pyramid, where Jack must collect treasure and defeat the demon jerk Belzebut. Can you save the royal Pamera family? And most importantly, how much treasure can you grab while doing so? Mighty Bomb Jack is a classically styled 2D platformer, but unlike Mario or Sonic, Jack’s doesn’t pack much of a punch. He can only avoid enemies, and unfortunately, there are a LOT of enemies in this pyramid. Dusty mummies pop up from every corner, and they transform into even more difficult enemies in a matter of seconds. Mighty Bomb Jack is a single-player NES classic available now on the Wii U’s eShop. This video review features video gameplay footage of Mighty Bomb Jack on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Chris Watters reviewed Team Fortress 2 for GameSpot almost six years ago when you could buy it off of retail shelves for $20. The 12+ hours he spent for this review have been like reconnecting with an old friend who doesn't just talk about the old days, but has fun new stories and fart jokes to share.

RUSH review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** RUSH review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of RUSH on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U developed and published by Two Tribes. Two Tribes brings more cube-oriented puzzles to the eShop with RUSH, a spiritual sequel to their previous puzzler, EDGE. Unlike that game, however, RUSH doesn’t give you direct control over the cubes. This time, you’re more of a traffic cop, guiding the multicolored cubes by placing objects in their environment. Using everything from arrows that change their direction to conveyor belts and even stop signs, you must find a way to get the cubes from their spawning points to their matching endpoints. Of course, it wouldn’t be a puzzle game if the levels weren’t, you know, puzzling. Each level offers a new design that makes traversing the terrain a challenge. RUSH has an almost mechanical nature—its puzzles feature lots of complexities and moving parts, but when they work, it suddenly looks so simple. RUSH is a single-player eShop puzzle game. This video review features video gameplay footage of RUSH on the eShop for the Nintendo Wii U and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.

Magic 2014: Duels of the Planeswalkers review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of Magic 2014: Duels of the Planeswalkers for PC developed by Stainless Games and published by Wizards of the Coast. Magic 2014: Duels of the Planeswalkers, much like the last several versions available for PC and various consoles, might seem at first glance to just be an annual rehash of the same concept; the nerdy equivalent of a Madden roster update. But Stainless Games and Wizards of the Coast added, in this version, a paradigm-shifting innovation: the ability to build your own deck out of booster packs earned during gameplay! (Which is, y'know, one of the central tenets of Magic: the Gathering as a whole.) This video review features video gameplay footage of Magic 2014: Duels of the Planeswalkers for PC and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's TJ.

The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief—Chapter 3: A Murder Of Ravens review. *******www.ClassicGameRoom**** Shop CGR shirts & mugs! *******www.CGRstore**** The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief—Chapter 3: A Murder Of Ravens review. Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow review of The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief—Chapter 3: A Murder Of Ravens on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 developed by King Art and published by Nordic Games. The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief is a classically styled point-and-click adventure that tells a story of mystery, crime and intrigue! Europe is being plundered by a master thief known simply as The Raven. He’s fatally wounded in Paris, by four years later, the British Museum is burgled by someone who leaves behind a single raven feather. Could this be an imitator…or is The Raven still alive? Playing as Constable Anton Jakob Zellner, players must solve puzzles and piece together clues in this old-school adventure game. The game is heavy on dialogue and text, forcing players to get a feel for the in-game characters and figure out who’s involved. The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief is split into three individual chapters—The Eye Of The Sphinx, Ancestry Of Lies and A Murder Of Ravens. All three are available for download on the PlayStation Network. This video review features video gameplay footage of The Raven: Legacy Of A Master Thief—Chapter 3: A Murder Of Ravens on the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation 3 and audio commentary from Classic Game Room's Derek.
