Skylander Swap Force game review

This is a Skylanders game where you mix and match tops and bottoms of Swap Force skylanders toys. The story is that Kaos is back and is trying to "Evilize" the magic volcano on cloudbreak islands, the source of all of skylands magic. In this game the main feature is mixing and matching the tops and bottoms of Swap Force skylanders to make hundreds of different combinations. There are plenty of new features in the game as well like the ability to jump, which is actually quite fun. There are also new dual elemental zones which require either two Skylanders of matching elements or a Swap Force with both. The other new feature is the new Swap Force Zones which require a Swap Force whose bottom symbol that matches. This is the best Skylanders game yet. 4.5 out of 5 stars. By Nick Starceski

Kirby Triple Deluxe game review

Kirby Triple Deluxe is a Kirby game for the Nintendo 3DS. The main feature of this game is the new hypernova ability which appears at certain places in certain levels and allow Kirby to suck up almost everything. The hypernova is extremely fun and makes you feel very powerful. Next up are the 4 new copy abilities Archer, Circus, Beatle, and Bell. Archer allows you to become a sharp shooter, Bell is great for taking on enemies as you go through the level, With Beatle you grab enemies with your horn, and Circus is a nice way to perform acrobatic feats. There are two collectibles in this game : sunstones and keychains. While keychains are nice little trinkets to remind you of past Kirby games, sunstones are crucial to moving forward. Toward the last two worlds the difficulty increases which provides a nice step up from past Kirby games. The story is that while Kirby was sleeping a beanstalk grew into the clouds and took dreamland with it. And on the stalk were evil bug villains who kidnapped King Dedede! Along with the main game there is a fighting mode where you fight other Kirby's and one where press buttons to the rhythm of the music with King Dedede. After you beat the game you unlock two new modes where you take on all the bosses one after another and  one where you replay the game as King Dedede. This is a great Kirby game. 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Pokemon X and Y Game review

Pokemon X and Y are Pokemon Games for the Nintendo 3DS. They feature brand new Pokemon and a whole new type as well as a new way to evolve. The new Pokemon have some of the best designs yet even if there aren't as many. Mega evolution is a brand new way to temporarily evolve your Pokemon in the middle of a battle. To mega evolve your Pokemon must first be holding their corresponding mega stone and then you can mega evolve them and make them stronger. However each trainer can only mega evolve once per battle, so you can only have one mega Pokemon during a battle.
The new fairy type is a great addition to the Pokemon series. They are immune to dragon moves and resistant against fighting, dark, and bug. They are do more damage against fighting, dark, and dragon.  However they are weak to poison and steel, as well as not doing much damage against fire, poison, and steel. In these regards they seem a bit overpowered. The game it's self is great with a beautiful region and nice story. The experience share now not only gives experience to one of your other Pokemon, but all of them! This makes the game a little easier to say in the least. My one complaint is that there is little to do after you beat the game. These are great Pokemon games and there has never been a better time to start. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
