Time Waster - AdVenture Capitalist
Incremental games are all the rage now, and I have grown quite the soft spot for them in my time-wasting golden years.

And sometimes you just can’t see it.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Review
Nintendo’s finest at their finest
The premise behind every “Super Smash Bros.” game has been incredibly simple, yet alluring: grab a bunch of characters from Nintendo’s all-star cast, place them on a stage together, and have them beat the snot out of each other. Each game has been one of the greatest collections of gaming history put onto one cartridge/disc/media device, and the newest iteration “Super Smash Bros for Wii U” does not disappoint this fantastic heritage.
