Sabotage Studio is on a mission to modernize some of the oldest genres known to gaming and their take on the turn-based RPG, Sea of Stars, is a delightfully modern interpretation of the genre that manages to keep things fresh even when it’s clearly been inspired by many of the…

Review – Pikmin 4

Author: Ricky Berg
Categories: Switch, Reviews

I struggle to think of a Nintendo series that has consistently “found itself” the way Pikmin has. Few titles get the kind of treatment it has – a myth-like origin story involving Miyamoto in his garden, multiple Japanese pop songs, cameos in unexpected places (data transfer apps? Super Nintendo World?),…

Review – Sonic Origins Plus

Author: Tom Brown
Categories: Switch, Reviews

When Sonic Origins launched last year it was rife with technical issues and felt somewhat light on content in comparison to earlier compilations of the blue blur’s earliest adventures. That said, these issues didn’t necessarily detract from the core experiences of each title, as we covered in our review. Now…

Review – Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective

Author: Ricky Berg
Categories: Switch, Reviews

For a generation of players, the Ace Attorney series significantly uplifted (if not outright defined) text based adventure games. Since the games first turned about in 2001 they’ve grown into a multi-media franchise and genuine icon. That level of popularity and success, most of it under the direction of Shu…

Review – Advance Wars 1+2: Re-Boot Camp

Author: Ricky Berg
Categories: Switch, Reviews

Nintendo’s tactical endeavors have been firmly vested into Fire Emblem. It makes sense too – greater narrative possibilities, gameplay that maintains a core identity while trying new things, hundreds of characters to put into a gacha game. It was the right call, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only option….

Review – Octopath Traveler II

Author: Jaxson Tapp
Categories: Switch, Reviews

Despite being a follow up to 2018’s Octopath Traveler, Octopath Traveler II is an entirely standalone experience. The new title features a brand new setting, eight new stories, and eight new travelers to experience those stories with. A lot of the bones are the same here – the eight new…

Review – Theatrhythm Final Bar Line

Author: Tom Brown
Categories: Switch, Reviews

My favorite 3DS game was Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Curtain Call. I figured it would be best to get that out of the way now. It was the title I spent the most time with on the system, aside from Animal Crossing: New Leaf. As a result of this extensive exposure,…
