Finding Nemo – Consumer Guide

Parents probably don't have anything to be anxious over. The most violent thing a kid will do in this game is to pop a bubble while a sea critter is inside, but the rest of the time the game treats enemies as things to be avoided rather than killed. There […]

Finding Nemo – Review

Was it even possible that Disney/Pixar's Finding Nemo would not have a videogame to complement its theatrical release? Not likely. The license was probably handed out while the movie was still in production.

I first fell in love with Puyo Pop when it was known as Kirby's Avalanche way back on the SNES, and it's been a favorite ever since.
