Yoshi’s Crafted World Not Just a Cutesy Kids Game

As we work towards the launch of Yoshi’s Crafted World, we continue our preview coverage by looking at something that has often plagued Yoshi titles in the past, whether fairly or unfairly. For the longest time, Yoshi titles have been pegged as ‘cutesy kids games’ by many in the gaming industry, and while that is often not true at all, it is still the label the game gets painted with. And sure, if I look back over the levels I’m…

There will also be an arcade collection and a Contra collection! Konami has announced that they will be releasing Arcade games, Castlevania, and Contra collections this year. They will be available…

Nindies Showcase Video (3/20)

Nintendo had an Indie (Nindie) showcase video today! You can check it out below and then please come back here for my thoughts on the showcase. I thought that the Nindies Showcase video was pretty good! Probably the best one in awhile (though its lack of Steamworld Quest was distrubing. Yes, I know it was in the last one but still). The showcase got off to a great start with the reveal that Cuphead is coming to the Nintendo Switch!…

Yoshi’s Crafted World is launching later this month, and thanks to Nintendo of Canada we have had the opportunity to jump into the experience for a few days now.

More Thoughts From Me #162: The Case of the Missing Sony E3 Conference

Sony announced this year that they will not be at E3. This means no E3 conference at all! Why is Sony doing this? Don’t they have anything to show for the Playstation 4 this year?! Some thoughts and theories below! Every year at E3: Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo show off games. Sure, you have Ubisoft and EA and some other companies, but the big three are always the most anticipated of E3. Not this year. This year Sony won’t be…

The Bard’s Gold

What do you get when you throw a bard into an action/platformer on the Nintendo Switch? Let’s find out in my review for The Bard’s Gold! The Bard’s Gold is an action/platformer with some rpg elements. There isn’t much of a story; Bard’s Gold focuses on its gameplay. Three difficulty settings are provided: Normal, Retro Mode, and Rogue-Lite. Normal is probably the easiest setting but does come with some drawbacks. In normal mode, the player is only given three lives…

Daggerhood Preview

Daggerhood is the latest game that Ratalaika Games are bringing to the Switch. Its an action/platformer and its pretty hard. I have been playing it for review and I have some thoughts on it. Daggerhood is an insanely hard game. In Daggerhood, you play a thief who is out to steal all of the king’s gold. He only has a dagger to get him through all of the insane traps and enemies that he’ll find on his journey. Fortunately, the…
