More Thoughts From Me #55: The Life And Death of the Wii U

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I don’t regret buying a Wii U. There are a ton of great games on the Wii U. I own most of them. I also really love the Wii U gamepad.

More Thoughts From Me #52: Play & Learn

This More Thoughts From Me is about Edutainment games. You can and should learn from video games. Its great to have a fun game that has  an entertaining story. We all want that escape from reality. Fun is important. But why can’t you, sometimes at least, have fun and learn something too? Most people seem to think of Edutainment as a genre for kids. Many of these games are, in fact, designed for little kids. Some, such as Brain Age,…

Recently, we found out that Rime would be coming to the Nintendo Switch (and other systems). Since then, the developer has been sharing more footage of the game on IGN. We have the latest video about the game below.   Wow! Rime really does look amazing. It is reminding me of Ico more and more. I wasn’t a huge fan of Ico, but I did like the graphics.
