More Thoughts From Me #86: The Rabbids Invade the Mushroom Kingdom

I didn’t believe the rumor about a Mario crossover game with Ubisoft’s Rabbids. I thought it was just something somebody with a lot of time and an overactive imagination came up with. And when I found out it was true, I wondered how good a game with Mario and the Rabbids could be. I was very impressed by the first footage of the game though. I was starting to get excited about Mario and Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. Would this game…

SteamWorld Dig 2 – Official Launch Trailer

Steamworld Dig 2 is coming to the Nintendo Switch this Thursday! Here is a new trailer for the game and my impressions of it. I loved this new Steamworld Dig 2 trailer. We got a tease of Rusty in the game, saw some new powerups (that hook!!), new areas, and more! I just have to mention how great it was to get another look at the town that Dorothy will be visiting. I like how the new menus are laid…

Pokken Tournament DX Review

Pokken Tournament was a much loved game on the Nintendo Wii U, but not one that many people bought into and spent much time with. Trying to bank on the success of the arcade cabinets in Japan, Nintendo made the decision to bring the game to consoles, with much success in Japan, and moderate success in North America. With a subsequent DX release on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo is looking to expand the player base even further, with many new features that will make this a must own for Nintendo Swtich fans, even those skeptical about the title on Wii U!

Music to Rayman’s Ears: A Look at the Musical Genius of Rayman Legends Definitive Edition

I love music in video games. I see video games as a visual, audio, and tactile experience. A bad audio experience won’t  kill a game but its always a disappointment to me when the audio isn’t where it should be. Of course, not all games can have a great score. I’d settle for a good score. But wow, isn’t it great when developers go the extra mile and create an amazing audio experience? Rayman Legends Definitive Edition for the Nintendo…

Project Octopath Traveler Demo Impressions

One of the biggest surprises of the recent Nintendo Direct was the announcement of a demo of Project Octopath Traveler for Nintendo Switch. I was surprised, in the first place, that Nintendo and Square were showing off the game. I thought Octopath was a long way off and might not be shown off too much yet. So to get footage and a demo on the same day was a shock and delight. I have to admit I’ve been pretty excited…

More Thoughts From Me #85: Holding Out My ARMS

Ever since I played the ARMS testpunch, I’ve wanted to play more of the game. Adam Roffel, editor-in-chief of GamesReviews.com, knew this and decided to send me a copy of the game. I got it in the mail yesterday and was able to play the game a bit more. Here are some more thoughts on ARMS for Nintendo Switch. I like the motion controls on ARMS a lot but this time around, I played the game with button controls. I’m…

The Wonderful graphics of Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition

Yesterday, I talked about Rayman Legends: Definitive Edition’s gameplay. Today, I want to tell you about the game’s graphics. The first thing I noticed about Rayman Legends, of course, was its graphics. This game looks amazing on both the TV and on the Switch’s screen! Rayman Legends looked great on the Wii U but I think the game looks even better on the Nintendo Switch. Without a doubt, Rayman Legends Definitive Edition absolutely pops on the TV in HD and…

Nintendo Direct: Third Party Support Strong, Nintendo Publisher of the Year?

Yesterday's Nintendo Direct was incredible, with 45 minutes of non-stop announcements, reveals, and details on all our favorite announced - and previously unannounced - titles coming to the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Nintendo has to be in line for Publisher of the Year for all that they have accomplished in 2017, leaving the Wii U and the criticisms that surrounded the company during that time way in the past. With strong 3rd party support on the horizon, and tons of great titles left for 2017, it's obvious to me that Nintendo ...

Nintendo Direct 9-13-17

There was a Nintendo Direct today! If you missed it, please check out the video below and then please come back for my impressions on it. I have a split opinion about today’s Nintendo Direct. I thought that the 3DS lineup was ok, meanwhile the Switch’s lineup was awesome. I’ll talk about the 3DS lineup first. The first game to be shown off in today’s Nintendo Direct was the upcoming Pokémon games. As you may know, I’m not a fan…

A Ray of Sunshine: A Look At Rayman Legends Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch

When Adam Roffel asked if I had any interest in Rayman Legends for Nintendo Switch, I couldn’t say yes fast enough! I had played the Rayman Legends demo on the Switch and loved it. I had played the demo on Wii U and loved it. But I had never played the full game because some other games were always coming up and distracting me from Rayman Legends. Boy was I missing out! I really loved the Rayman Legends Definitive Edition…
