More Thoughts From Me #141: That 80’s VideoKid

I was born in the 1980s. So for me, there is a lot of nostalgia to be found in those years. The 90s, not so much, but there was so much I loved in the 80s. From cartoons to tv shows to movies, the 80s has cool stuff in spades. When you get a movie (Ready Player One) or a video game, such as The VideoKid, thats all about taping into 80s nostalgia than I’m interested. I recently got The…

Undertale Warns of Dog Marriage

Last night, I finally bought Undertale for the Nintendo Switch. Yes, I know I’m very late to the bandwagon. And I’d also normally just write a More Thoughts about Undertale (I still might) but I had thoughts about the game after playing it last night. I just had to share! Undertale is such a strange game. First you get attacked by a flower, then you get saved by a creature who wants to keep you locked in her home, and…

Monster Loves You! is a different kind of game for the Nintendo Switch…but is it a good one? Monster Loves You! is not like any game I’ve played on…

Is Jack N’Jill DX any good? Jack N’ Jill DX is a runner. You do not control the movement of your character. At the beginning of the level, you press A and the character runs. After that, all you can do is…

Super Dungeon Tactics

Armed with turn-based tactical rpg gameplay, Super Dungeon Tactics invaded the Nintendo Switch last week. I have a review copy of it and I’m finally ready to let you know whether or not you should check out this game. Is Super Dungeon Tactics worth visiting? The story in Super Dungeon Tactics isn’t that great. Its very basic actually. What saves it from being boring is the game’s sense of humor! The character dialogue is pretty funny. The story and dialogue…

Megaquarium Review

Released earlier this week, Megaquarium is the latest game to come from Twice Circled, the one-man developer responsible for the construction-puzzler indie hit Big Pharma. Those who have played Big Pharma will notice striking similarities within Megaquarium, particularly in the controls, graphics and UI. However, there are some major differences as well, and fans of a more traditional tycoon experience may be in for a few pleasant surprises. Now, on to the review!

Fullblast

The 2D space/air shooter genre has been around since the early days of arcade games. The basics of the genre haven’t changed much, mostly its the graphics that have changed. Fullblast for Nintendo Switch is a new 2D shooting game that takes place on Earth and has you controlling an aircraft thats taking on some aliens. The game doesn’t have much of a story, though 2D shooters rarely do. The important thing here is whether Fullblast is a fun game…

Ultra Space Battle Brawl

Super Smash Bros Ultimate comes out in December. Until then, players will have to find other means of multiplayer fun on the Switch. There are plenty of options though and another one was added to the eshop recently: Ultra Space Battle Brawl. How good is this game? Will you want to play this with your friends? I was skeptical about Ultra Space Battle Brawl at first. The game is described as “Street Fighter and Pong on steroids” by the PR…
