Fan Made SNES Yooka-Laylee Footage Surfaces

Playtonic Games has always been big on fan created content, and have been retweeting a lot of fan submissions they have received. If what the fans are producing is any indication, Yooka-Laylee is one of the most watched and anticipated titles of 2017. Super fan @DvonLaser (on Twitter) posted this video (seen below) of his working 2D Yooka-Laylee game on the SNES.

Splatoon 2 A Hit This Weekend

If you have a Nintendo Switch, you would have had the option to download and play a little of Splatoon 2 this weekend, and from the buzz on Twitter today, it appears as if these people were generally happy with the experience. Two maps were available for players to run around and splat ink in. The ultimate goal was to test the servers on a heavy load, and with few reports of dropped games, I'd assume it went fairly well.

Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns – Summer, Year 1

We are back! If you remember when the last Story of Seasons game launched on the Nintendo 3DS, I did a number of diary entries breaking down what I was doing each month. With this new release, Trio of Towns, I plan to do the same, instead of doing a traditional review. So, let's not waste any time and get into this! We already looked at our first season in Story of Seasons here, and although I haven't finished season 2 (Summer), I have too much to talk about already!

PDP Elite Player Backpack for Nintendo Switch

The Elite Player Backpack for the Nintendo Switch might just be the best accessory anyone can possibly purchase for their Nintendo Switch. As a portable system, you generally won't need to pack along a lot of accessories, but should you want to take your entire Switch unit with you somewhere - which I have - this storage and transport solution is the best product available. Let's dive in!

Mario Sports Superstars Review

When Nintendo launched the Mario Sports Remix on the Wii a number of years ago, I was super skeptical and assumed a mash-up of sports in a single game - ala the Winter and Sumer Olympic Game titles - would be a fairly short experience, with little replayability outside of parties with friends and family.

Yokaa-Laylee Is a Nostalgic Ride So Far

With review codes hitting media last night, it is obvious that Team 17 and Playtonic Games know they have a winner on their hands. The media is playing a game 3 weeks ahead of launch? The Embargo lift date is a week ahead of launch? Developers and publishers only do this when the title they are putting out is a home run, and so far, I think Yooka-Laylee is a HOME RUN.

Styx: Shards of Darkness a True Stealth Experience

I've not completely finished Styx: Shards of Darkness yet but I'm having a really great time with it as I go. Very few things frustrate me in this game, and the more I play it, the more I appreciate the stealth mechanics implemented by the developers. Whether I'm using elements to sneak around, or one of the many special skills that Styx can use, I'm always having a great experience and trying to figure out how to do things differently, more efficiently, and ...

Mass Effect: Andromeda Nomad ND1 Die Cast Car from PDP

Video game collectibles have always been very popular, prompting most companies to release special edition packaging for their retail launches that includes some type of statue for consumers to put on display. Bioware, the company responsible for Mass Effect, have partnered with Performance Design Products (PDP) to create some amazing Andromeda collectibles, some of which are included with special editions of the game, and some that are stand alone. Recently, ...

Snakebyte Offering Many Switch Accessories

Video game accessory maker Snakebyte has launched a number of products for the Nintendo Switch, and were nice enough to send over some samples for us to look at. While I'm fairly picky about the accessories I purchase - and frankly, who I purchase them from - I was very impressed with the items Snakebyte had to offer. Although I'm not as familiar with this brand as I am with other popular brands, I extended the same reviewing courtesy to these as I would ...

A Criminal Past DLC Review

I always get excited about the opportunity to learn about the back story of some of my favorite video game characters. Adam Jenson has been one of those characters. His backstory is actually fairly intriguing, and I've enjoyed slowly learning about what made him the man...augmented man...he is today. Enter the latest DLC which came out last month, A Criminal Past.
