So, without further ado, lets dive in!unnamed

New on the WiiU:

  • Disney Infinity: For the first time ever in digital download, Disney’s toy-themed sandbox game comes to the WiiU today…and its free! That being said, you’ll still have to buy the base and toys that go with it to actually play the game, but still.

  • Midtown Crazy Race

  • Mega Man 6: The last Megaman game for the NES gaming system, Megaman 6 sees the Blue Bomber battling the mysterious Mr. X, who is totally not just Dr. Wily in a silly coat, across 16 stages of oldschool platforming goodness.Z8icR6AQYlN_LS6Liv-S3b2WKKVxu_E5

  • Life Force: The classic shooter comes home with two player co-op gameplay and all the blistering difficulty the genre is known for.

  • Xtreme Sports: Hailing from an era where every possible word began with an X, Xtreme Sports offers an RPG like experience as players choose a character and guide them through a variety of challenges to become the champion!

  • BLAZBLUE -CLONEPHANTASMA: All of your favorite Blazblue characters shrunk down to the size of dolls and forced to do battle with one another in arena-style combat!

  • Donkey Kong Jr. Math: Coming next Thursday, this gaming oddity combines the fun of basic mathematics with the experience of controlling a giant ape in a monogrammed leotard.

  • Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: In this hotly anticipated crossover title, two of gaming’s top minds must work together to save a young girl accused of Witchcraft.(Coming Friday, August 29th.)

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.
