Author: Bryan Finch
Categories: Reviews, Switch

Pocket Rumble has had a long development cycle filled with numerous delays and bouts of silence from the creators, but, luckily, it’s finally available for purchase for Switch.

Review: 20XX on Switch

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Mega Man clones are a dime a dozen. Many have tried to fill the void left by the franchise’s eight year hiatus, with one in particular proving not every Man deserves to be Mighty. Thankfully the good folks over at Batterystaple Games seem to know what’s up, paying homage to…

Review: Mario Tennis Aces

Categories: Reviews, Switch

With how many Mario spinoffs there are it’s easy to forget that they aren’t all made equal. For every Mario Party 2, there’s a Mario Party 9, making me second guess when I should get excited. The Mario Tennis series has been on a losing streak for a while now,…

Review: Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy

Categories: Reviews, Switch

When I was growing up in the ‘90s, I was part of a pretty Nintendo-centric family. I grew up on the SNES, N64, and the Game Boy, but my nextdoor neighbor’s family had a PlayStation. We’d gather in his basement frequently and play two games: Tekken 3 and Crash Bandicoot….

Review: Hollow Knight on Nintendo Switch

Categories: Reviews, Switch

Some games define a generation. Others, an entire genre. And if that bit of dramatism doesn’t foreshadow just how absurdly good Hollow Knight is, I don’t know what will. Surprise-released during E3 to the shock of many, Team Cherry’s derelict dungeon-diver is a Metroidvania for the ages; one that stands…

With all the hubbub surrounding E3 2018, it was very easy to let Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido slip through the cracks. The game was revealed at E3 in 2017, and it didn’t get much coverage after that. But, after completing Sushi Striker’s surprisingly meaty campaign, I can say…

In this day and age, downloadable content is a phrase that’s come to mean something negative for a lot of gamers, and not without reason. All too often we see complaints about unfinished games that are only truly complete once you pay for a pricey package full of extra content….

Review: BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle

Author: Ricky Berg
Categories: Reviews, Switch

When it comes to fighting games, I’ve always been a Capcom fan, or more specifically a Street Fighter fan. It wasn’t until the second BlazBlue game came along that I started to develop an appreciation for “anime fighters,” with their higher speed and more character-centric systems. After having kept up…
