    CGR Undertow - THE LEGEND OF ZELDA Review for Nintendo Wii U

    The Legend Of Zelda review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com 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. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com 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.

    CGR Undertow - TELEGLITCH Review for PC

    by CGRundertow (2/7/14) 3,305 views

    Teleglitch review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com 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.

    Donkey Kong review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com 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.

    Hack, Slash, Loot review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com 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.

    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 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.

    CGR Undertow - NES REMIX Review for Nintendo Wii U

    by CGRundertow (2/3/14) 966 views

    NES Remix review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com 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.
