Nintendo Switch Indie Highlights Video

Nintendo UK had an Indie Highlight video today. You can check it out below and then please come back for my thoughts on this Indie Direct. The Nintendo Indie highlight video was not announced. It was a complete surprise. Also surprising was that three of the games shown in the video: Bad North, Prison Architect, and Morphies Law came out today! I thought the video was pretty impressive overall. Nintendo Switch is getting a ton more Indie games for the…

Flipping Death Review

Earlier this week, I wrote about Flipping Death a bit. It is currently available on the Nintendo Switch eshop. Thanks to Zoink! Games though, I was able to play the game early. And what I found was…well…check out my review to find out what I thought of the game! Flipping Death’s story is nuts. It is just really weird, strange, odd, silly, and completely wonderful. I love the dialogue in this game especially. Flipping Death has a unique sense of…

Death Flips Out: A Look At Flipping Death for the Nintendo Switch

Penny dies. Game Over. Well, ok, not exactly. Penny dies, becomes a ghost, runs into Death and then becomes Death. Wait, what?! Welcome to the delightfully odd world of Flipping Death, which I got to play early thanks to Zoink! Games. These are the same people who brought us Stick It To the Man. My review of Flipping Death isn’t ready yet but I thought today, the day of the game’s release on the Switch, would be an excellent day…

Captain Toad Treasure Tracker Review

When Captain Toad first launched on the Nintendo Wii U back in 2014, it received the utmost praise from most major outlets, our included, but that wasn't enough to get people to buy the game. And in reality, that wasn't the games fault, but rather, the lack of Nintendo Wii U systems in the wild. Fast forward to 2018, and with the popularity of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo was giving Captain Toad a second lease on life. Was it worth playing again? Has anything really changed? Let's dive in!

Bomb Chicken Review

Thanks to a freak accident, a chicken suddenly doesn’t lay eggs anymore…he lays bombs! Bomb Chicken for the Nintendo Switch is an odd game. I wrote about it in a preview.

There isn’t much of a story to Bomb Chicken but that shouldn’t be a surprise: this game…

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – Super Mario Odyssey Levels

If you've owned a Nintendo Switch for some time, you've likely played a fair bit of Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo return to 3D Mario platform gaming. And the wait was definitely worth it, as Super Mario Odyssey was one of the best Mario games ever released. Captain Toad on Nintendo Switch really wanted to take advantage of that, so instead of having 4 levels from Super Mario 3D World - like on the Wii U - the Switch Captain Toad release has given us 4 Super Mario Odyssey levels instead, from the Cascade Kingdom, Metro Kingdom, Luncheon Kingdom, and Sand Kingdom.

Bomb Chicken Preview

Let me tell you the story about a chicken who can lay bombs instead of eggs. This chicken is crazy. It blows up enemies, walls, uses bombs to reach higher places, and solve puzzles. The story is called Bomb Chicken. In fact, its the story of a brand new indie game that just came out today. I received a review code for the game and I’ve been playing it. Let me tell you a bit more about this bombtastic game.…

While the game looks better on Xbox One and Ps4, there is something special about playing it on Nintendo Switch.

More Thoughts From Me #127: Crash crashes onto the Nintendo Switch

Once upon a time, Crash Bandicoot called Mario out. At the time, Mario and Crash were on separate systems. Crash and his makers just felt like he was better than Mario. Of course, we all know that wasn’t and isn’t true. Still, the first Crash game for the Playstation 1 was a lot of fun and challenging. I don’t think I ever played the second or third Crash game. And now all three games are on the Nintendo Switch via…
