The Nintendo 3DS, long thought dead by critics of the platform, continues to amaze the video game world with continued - albeit slowing - sales and new experiences. Enter Kirby’s Extra Epic Yarn, a remake of the Nintendo Wii game of a similar name, which brings to 2019 the same charm the original had in spades. Does it hold up game play wise all these years later? Let’s dive in!

The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame Review

The LEGO Movie 2 was a fantastic experience when I went and saw it in theatres, and whenever there is a great cinema experience, there are high hopes for the LEGO game that spins off from that. LEGO titles over the last number of years have really been hit-and-miss, so jumping into any LEGO experience always has the potential for disappointment. The LEGO Movie 2 Videogame takes a much different route than other LEGO games based on movies, and while this isn't all bad, we felt the game ultimately shipped a few weeks - potentially months? - too early. Let's dive in!

Everspace Review

Finally, the wildly popular space-shooter roguelike Everspace has made its way to the Nintendo Switch! Originally released in May 2017, Everspace is a beautifully minimalistic roguelike adventure game. Produced and developed by veteran indie developer ROCKFISH Games, Everspace utilizes the Unreal Engine 4 and has snagged many awards since its initial release. It was released for the Nintendo Switch late last year, and we have eagerly waiting to get our hands on it ever since.

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy Review

Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is a game heavily inspired by Egyptian lore, from its story to its setting and characters. Mythology is a good source for video games, though it doesn't always result in a good game. Is Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy good, OK, or just plain bad?

Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition Review

The Tales franchise has been one of Japan’s most popular game franchises over the last few decades and while there has been some favorable attention in the west, the franchise has yet to hit the mainstream. Hopefully that will all change, as Tales of Vesperia Definitive Edition will be one of the first tales games to be released across all major platforms, at the same time.

Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes Review

Every once in a while a game comes along that just feels completely out of place in its environment. As soon as I heard that Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes was to be released on the Nintendo Switch, I knew instantly that this would be one of those games. Travis Strikes Again: NMH, in all of its raunchiness and straight-up adults-only dialogue, on the family-oriented Nintendo Switch? It just didn’t make sense. It still doesn’t. But you know what, that might just be one of the best things about it. Confused? As you will come to learn, confusion is just ...

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Review

Although Nintendo has been publishing Super Smash Bros titles since the Nintendo 64 era, I’ve never really been able to get into any of them. The reasoning for that isn’t as apparent as I would have thought either. I like the idea of Super Smash Bros. I like the characters in Super Smash Bros. And I even love the level design. But for some reason, they’ve never grabbed me. A copy of the game was provided by Nintendo of Canada…

The grunting is back, and the voices are gone, but that's perfectly fine with us! LEGO Harry Potter Collection recently launched on the Nintendo Switch, and we are loving our time with it so far. While some will argue that this is purely a money grab, I have a different take on it which I will outline below.

Pokemon Let’s Go Review

It's been over 20 years Pokémon Yellow released, and Nintendo has brought back so many memories with the release of Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Pokémon Let's Go Eevee! From my first moments in Pallet Town to the completion of the Elite Four, and even into the post game matches against master trainers, Pokemon Let's Go gave me enough to remind me I'm playing something I loved decades ago, while offering enough new game play to make me excited to see what was next. But does the whole package come together in the end? Let's dive in!
