The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword [ Review ]
There is tremendous pressure on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. As the 16th installment in the legendary Zelda series, it must carry the burden of continuing the saga’s excitement and reputation, as well as breathe life into the struggling Wii console. Nintendo EAD decided to address this dilemma by taking a gamble with the Wii MotionPlus peripheral for sword-fighting. This comes with the redesigned Wii Remote pointing system, which is utilized for targeting. Through these enhancements, the franchise wants to prove to the gaming community that it can continue to evolve with the changing time.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword - What to Expect
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is an upcoming title to be exclusively on the Nintendo Wii.

Sword of the Stars II: Enhanced Edition [ Review ]
While there are quite a lot of good titles that come out amidst the mediocre fare that floods the ocean of video games, there are some that slip in which are rather humiliating displays of incompetency and inconsideration.

Sword of the Stars II was no different when it first came out, but here it is again with an enhanced edition.

Black Knight Sword [ Review ]
Goichi Suda, better known as the Japanese game designer Suda 51, has become known as that guy who comes up with those quirky games that combines action-packed gameplay with weird premises and tons of pop culture references stuffed into them.
