In my eyes there are three multiplayer kings in the world of Nintendo. You have the crossover clobbering of Super Smash Bros., the fast-paced races of Mario Kart, and then there’s the dice rolling, luck cursing, Star gathering spectacular that is the one and only Mario Party. Part board game,…

Review: Child of Light Ultimate Edition

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Conventional wisdom holds that all the inspired and artistic games are made by little indie teams with a vision, while the AAA studios pump out highly polished yet safer titles on a annual or biannual basis in their never ending quest to make All The Money. So when Ubisoft Montreal…

Review: Mega Man 11 on Switch

Categories: Reviews, Switch

It’s been eight years since Mega Man’s graced us with his presence. Fans have since looked longingly toward the indie space to fill that Buster shaped hole in our hearts.

Review: TowerFall on Switch

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Full disclosure: I fell head over heels in love for the plucky platformer Celeste earlier this year. In fact, we here at Nintendo Wire gave it a perfect 10, praising its strong sense of storytelling and firm grasp of platformers past. So imagine my elation when approached to cobble together…

Review: Undertale on Switch

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Our enjoyment of a game relies on the context in which we experience it just as much as the actual quality of the product. Games are a product of their time — one even a few years older can reflect different trends and ideas of the world around it. And…

Review: Hyper Light Drifter – Special Edition

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Real talk. I like my vidja games ‘gamey’. Not the ‘strong flavor’ kind associated with eating tainted meat. I’m talking the quarter pumping, joystick grinding kind.
