Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

Author: Tom Brown
Categories: Reviews, Switch

If you’ve been gaming in any capacity for the past decade you’ve no doubt played one of TT Games’ Lego-branded licensed adventures. Like clockwork, the company has pushed out at least one game every year since 2005, usually with the same basic mechanics and structure. Unfortunately, they quickly became hit-or-miss,…

Review: The End is Nigh

Categories: Reviews, Switch

The Nintendo Switch is quickly becoming my go-to place to feed my appetite for punishingly hard platformers. Back in August the boldly bouncy Slime-san wormed its way into my brain, followed more recently by the gravity defying visionary VVVVVV. Soon we’ll see legendary game designer Edmund McMillen’s meaty mascot beefing…

Review: Resident Evil Revelations Collection

Author: Tom Brown
Categories: Reviews, Switch

Originally released for the Nintendo 3DS in early 2012, almost a year-on from the system’s launch, Resident Evil: Revelations showed just how capable the little system could be. Sure, we had beautiful games like Pilotwings Resort and Ocarina of Time 3D in that first year, but very few attempted realistic…

As far back as I can remember, I’ve been a fan of Pokémon. For more than 20 years I’ve eagerly awaited new releases in the series, devouring every new bit of information about every new entry that I could. I would obsessively check websites and scour the internet for the…

Review: Rocket League on Nintendo Switch

Author: Jaxson Tapp
Categories: Reviews, Switch

Rocket League has been one of my most anticipated Switch releases this year. The demolition derby/soccer-hybrid has been a smash hit since its release back in 2015, and it doesn’t show any signs of stopping. Psyonix porting Rocket League to Switch, with the help of Panic Button, was a no-brainer,…

Review: Moon Hunters

Author: Jaxson Tapp
Categories: Reviews, Switch

For the last two weeks my life has revolved around one thing — hunting moons. I’m currently on a quest to play Super Mario Odyssey to 100% completion, with over 800 Power Moons and counting. I’ve also been tracking down a couple of pretty rad Funko POPs, created in the…

Review: Ittle Dew 2+

Author: Tom Brown
Categories: Reviews, Switch

In recent years, more and more indie games have begun to take heavy inspiration from the Legend of Zelda franchise, each with its own twists on the formula. Binding of Isaac marries the first NES game’s dungeons with a roguelike randomizer, while Oceanhorn takes things isometric. Ludosity’s Ittle Dew, meanwhile,…

Review: VVVVVV

Author: Ricky Berg
Categories: Reviews, Switch

It’s been seven years since VVVVVV first came out and in that time it’s been released on several platforms, including the 3DS and even smartphones. Yet in all these years I somehow managed to not play it. It was the type of game I’d always hear mentioned among other unquestionably…

Categories: Reviews, Switch

In today’s gaming landscape of muted colors, dramatic set-pieces and deafening explosions, we need more games about a simple father and his loving family. Here is such a game, following the paternal adventures of a charming character and his normal, totally human life. He is most certainly not an octopus…

It’s been four years since Sonic Team’s last outing, Sonic Lost World on the Wii U. In that time, the branch of Sega in charge of the Blue Blur was working on Sonic Forces, the next 3D adventure for Sonic & friends. The marketing bragged that Forces was made by…
