Ninja Theory has made a name for themselves with well-crafted, highly-polished games over the past decade. They […]

SideArc Reviews: “Yoshi’s Woolly World”

An adorable little yarn

| Categories: 3DS, Featured Posts, review, SideArc, Video Games, Wii U | 7 Comments »

“Yoshi’s Woolly World” is bar none the most adorable game I have ever played, and is a darn good platformer to boot.
