Review: Overwatch: Legendary Edition (Switch)

Review: Overwatch: Legendary Edition For Nintendo Switch

At long last, Overwatch has finally landed on Nintendo Switch. After what seemed like a constant waltz of “will they or won’t they” with Blizzard following a leaked Overwatch Switch case on Amazon, the official announcement game. Busy, casual, and downright lazy Overwatch fans across the world rejoiced. Sure, the graphics and performance would obviously […]

Review: The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

Clear back in 1993, when the Game Boy was still a hot commodity for gaming on the go, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was a battery killer. Back when I owned the original, I must have beat it about half a dozen times on the Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Super Game Boy. […]

[REVIEW] "Gang Beasts" is Zany Party Madness

[REVIEW] “Gang Beasts” is Zany Party Madness

Gang Beasts is a multiplayer party game where players control gelatinous characters and take part in slaptstick fight sequences. It’s a party game meant to be taken lightly, which is great, except that the player base is so small it makes the online matchmaking pointless. The concept and execution are relatively solid, however, unless you […]

"Killing Floor: Double Feature"

“Killing Floor: Double Feature” Doesn’t Evolve Much, but That’s Okay

Tripwire Interactive and publisher Deep Silver released the Killing Floor: Double Feature eariler this year to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the franchise. The Double Feature includes both Killing Floor 2 and Killling Floor: Incursion which is a VR spin-off of the franchise. Both games stick to the basic formula of having players brutally murder a bunch of […]

"We. The Revolution" is a Great Concept with Poor Execution

“We. The Revolution” is a Great Concept with Decent Execution

Klabater and Polyslash’s We. The Revolution is a unique in both gameplay concept and art-style, as it puts players in control of a Tribunal Judge during the French Revolution. Players will need to pass sentences, play the politics, and do everything in their power not to be the next one brought to the guillotine. The game […]

"My Time at Portia" Review

“My Time at Portia” is a Charming Crafting Game

Team 17’s My Time at Portia is a cute, relaxing crafting game where players restore the neglected family workshop and fulfill commissions, grow crops, raise animals, and befriend the inhabitants of the post-apocalyptic town called Portia. Players need to gather, mine, and craft their way to being the top workshop in town, and they may just […]

"The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II"

“The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II” is a Straightforward Port

Going into The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel II, I’d never played the original game. So my background information on the title was limited to the official game description and what I could piece together from the opening sequence of the game’s story. Which is probably not the best way to pick up a […]


"RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore" is an Exercise in Patience

“RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore” is an Exercise in Patience

RemiLore: Lost Girl in the Lands of Lore is the kind of anime game that has a very specific fanbase in mind. And I am not that fanbase. So this was a bit of a mis-match between game and reviewer, but I’ll try to do my best regardless. The game is a hack-and-slash rogue-like adventure […]

[REVIEW] Spike Chunsoft's "Crystar" is More Fun than it Sounds

[REVIEW] Spike Chunsoft’s “Crystar” is More Fun than it Sounds

Crystar is a game about a young girl who travels to purgatory and purifies the torments of restless souls by crying about it. The game even has a “cry to gain more power” mechanic. The game is described by Spike Chunsoft and developer FuRyu as “driven by catharsis,” which is why Rei gains strength from […]

"Attack on Titan Tactics" is Now Available on iOS and Android

“Attack on Titan Tactics” is a Surprisingly Complex Mobile RTS

Like most officially licensed game adaptations, Attack on Titan Tactics relies heavily on its leveraged IP. A licensed game like Tactics lives and dies off of its authenticity to the original. Luckily, DeNA and Crunchyroll Games are also partnered with Kodansha and Funimation who publish the manga and anime respectively. The game also features the original Japanese […]

“Borderlands 3”: Works Where It Counts, But Doesn’t Add Much Else

There’s a tempering of expectation of sorts when it comes to Gearbox and 2K Games’ Borderlands franchise that you know what you’re getting from the start and for many, that’s enough, but let’s not pretend this title will ever reinvent the wheel when it comes to first-person shooters. The humor of the game is sort […]

Review: Super Mario Maker 2

Review: “Super Mario Maker 2” for Nintendo Switch

The moment I saw we were finally getting Super Mario Maker 2, the ideas of how to punish my friends immediately swirled through my head, as it did with many others. Granted, there are many people who played the original on the Wii U and got to live out their level-builder fantasies. Or those who […]

Review: "Toy Story Drop" For Android

Review: “Toy Story Drop!” For Mobile Devices

Earlier this year, Big Fish Games announced they would be doing a Toy Story mobile game in time for the next film called Toy Story Drop! A few weeks ago, that game finally came out and we received a review code for it on iOS to try out. The game itself is pretty simple to […]

Review: ‘Resident Evil 4’ Nintendo Switch Port Excels as Expected

It’s hard to improve upon the best Resident Evil game for a Nintendo console, but Capcom did find a way with the expected HD remastered version of Resident Evil 4. Originally released in 2005, Resident Evil 4 revolutionized the franchise opting for a more action-oriented affair with sequences that require the player to perform a […]

Review: ‘Resident Evil’ HD Remastered Solid Port for Nintendo Switch

Review: ‘Resident Evil’ HD Remastered Solid Port for Nintendo Switch

It’s hard to believe the original remake of Capcom’s Resident Evil started on the Nintendo Gamecube and now its superior HD version has made its way to the Switch. The 2002 remake was part of an exclusivity deal Capcom made with Nintendo that saw the game mostly reworked. The puzzles remained the same, but the […]


Dauntless is an Impressive Achievement and a Damn Good Game

Dauntless‘s rocky launch aside, there’s a whole lot of great game for players to sink their teeth into now that it’s been fully launched. And the rocky start really just goes to show how difficult a simultaneous cross-play launch across all available platforms can truly be. Sure, the matchmaking could be faster and the server […]

Team Sonic Racing’s Unique Mechanics are a Double-Edged Sword

SEGA and Sumo Digital’s Team Sonic Racing is a team kart racer that actually requires teamwork, which makes it rather unique. The concept involves teams of three players working together to boost one another based on their racer-type abilities. The three types – speed, power, and technique – all have their own special abilities which can […]

Auto Draft

[Review] A Plague Tale: Innocence is Hauntingly Hopeful and Heartbreaking

Asobo Studio and Focus Home Interactive’s A Plague Tale: Innocence is as beautiful and heartbreaking as the story of two young children surviving the Spanish Inquisition and Black Plague ever could be. The game’s scenery is engrossing, the story is handled with a deft touch, and the stealth action is intuitive but unforgiving. A Plague […]
