Preview: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It's hard to believe that I'm actually playing Breath of the Wild right now, and it is freaking me out a little bit. As fans, we have waited a LONG time for this game - originally scheduled to just be released on the Wii U, or so we thought - and to finally have it on the Nitnendo Switch is a dream come true. Let's face it: it has been a LONG time since we have played a new Zelda title on a home console, with the latest few releases being remakes of older ...

Preview: Nintendo Switch User Interface, Abdallah Sets One Up!

The Wii U user interface was very blocky, bland, and somewhat aimed at kids. Sure, it was easy to use, but it wasn't as visually appealing as what we got out of the Xbox One and PS4 interfaces. The Nintendo 3DS, while like the Wii U in it's blocky look, eventually gave gamers the option to customize their home screens, keeping the child like presence and appeal, but giving older gamers a chance to make it different. With the Nintendo Switch, it appears as if ...

Preview: Nintendo Switch Build Quality

Although the Wii was a relatively well built console, nothing Nintendo has built to date rivals the quality of the Nintendo Switch. The Switch has the unique purpose of being both a home console and a portable device, which required special engineering to ensure that nothing was left out, and that build wise, it was solid.

Nintendo Switch Preview Coverage, Abdallah Unboxes One!

It is almost March 3rd, but thanks to Nintendo of Canada, we have had the opportunity to pay around with it, 1-2-Switch, and the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild over a week early. While we are not allowed to publish scores and final thoughts, a number of things have surfaced for me - positives and negatives - that I will discuss over a series of articles.

Loot Crate – Early 2017

It's been a while since we unboxed and reviewed a Loot Crate subscription box, and that isn't because we are lazy! We have been swamped lately with work, and since the delivery date of these boxes is so random, it is hard to schedule their articles. Now that the Switch is in our hands and things are settling down again, we thought we would highlight a few of our favorite items from the past few months, and we kick it off with...

Are Websites Reviewing 1-2-Switch?

The lack of chatter about 1-2-Switch is something I've been thinking about over the last couple days. As more and more media sources get their Nintendo Switch units in the mail, I'm noticing that when they unbox their package from Nintendo they contain a lot of things: Zelda amiibo, Switch accessories, a system, and always a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. One thing I'm not seeing - highlighted for me by GameXplains latest video - is a lack of ...

Horizon Zero Dawn Review

New game IPs and new franchises are always exciting, but understandably terrifying at the same time. There is so much that could go wrong with new ideas, characters, and game play mechanics, but at the same time, so many possibilities to create something new in a marketplace of spin offs and copy cats.

Halo Wars 2 Review

I long debated doing this review for Halo Wars 2, and while I plan to affix a score to this when I’m finished, I feel like readers should look at this as impressions. I have one reason for this: RTS games do not translate well to the console experience, and despite the good job Microsoft Studios has done with both the original Halo Wars, and this subsequent title, it is still not the ideal playing situation. Halo Wars 2 on…

Halo Wars 2 Controls – Choose your Platform Wisely

Halo Wars 2 will be launching soon on both the PC and the Xbox One, and our review of the games content should be live soon. The issue with Halo Wars is that it launching on two platforms: one that is great for RTS style games, and one that really isn't. We spent a lot of time with the Xbox One version of the game, and thought instead of dragging the title down in our review with critical controller comments, we would talk about it separately.
