Shining Resonance Refrain – Announce Trailer

Sega announced yesterday that Shining Resonance Refrain will be coming west! We have the announcement trailer below, plus some thoughts from me about the game. Shining Resonance Refrain will be coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Sega is bringing the game west this summer.

Bayonetta Nintendo Switch Review

Please check out my review-in-progress part 1 and part 2 of Bayonetta. Also you can check out Adam Roffel’s review of Bayonetta 2. What do I think of Bayonetta 1 though? What’s the final vedicit? Is the first Bayonetta a good game? The story in Bayonetta is very hooky. Basically the game has a B-movie style plot. The dialogue is what you’d expect from such a movie too: corny with a lot of cursing. And to make matters worse, there…

More Thoughts From Me #108: So Very Addicted to Dragon Quest Builders

Fe Review

Although it does not happen often - although to be honest, it's become more common each year - every time a moody, charming indie game hits the marketplace on Xbox One, the store on PlayStation, or the Nintendo eShop, the collective video game world tends to lose their mind in excitement and praise. For a reference point, I look back on Unravel and Ori and the Blind Forest, two games that tugged on the emotions of players as they were carried through and exceptional experience. Enter Fe, an other game in this growing 'genre' that does the exact same thing. ...

Bayonetta Review-in-progress Part 2

On Wednesday, we talked about the first Bayonetta’s visuals. Today the game comes out for the Nintendo Switch! And this is really just the perfect moment to talk about Bayonetta’s gameplay. The graphics on a game can be great, but if the gameplay sucks, well, than the game will be forgotten faster then this review-in-progress! So how does Bayonetta play on the Nintendo Switch? When you use the analog stick and button controls on Bayonetta, this game plays really well.…

Bayonetta 2 Review

If you never got around to owning a Wii U - or if you did but never got a chance to play Bayonetta 2 - Nintendo is giving you the ability to play both Bayonetta 1 and 2 ahead of the launch of Bayonetta 3 later this year. While my colleague Daniel has been working on our review of Bayonetta, I've been working on Bayonetta 2. Although it hasn't been that long since we all had the opportunity to play Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U, I think it was very important for Nintendo to bring the whole trilogy to the Switch. But has there been any improvements in the two years ...

Switching to Bayonetta

On the Wii U, I played a demo of Bayonetta but I never played the full game. I didn’t know if the game would be something I’d like or not. When Adam Roffel asked if I wanted to review Bayonetta for the Nintendo Switch, I said yes. Would I like Bayonetta? I wasn’t sure, but I knew there were a lot of people who liked it on Wii U. Is Bayonetta a good game on the Switch? Here’s my preview…
