Splatoon 2 Extended Review: Salmon Run

Our overall review of Splatoon 2 is up on the site and readable here, but we thought we would do some extended, more in depth looks at some of the specific modes in the game. First up is Salmon Run, the one mode I was most critical of in my review. Frankly, the content of Salmon Run was not what was disappointing, but rather, the limited playability of the mode itself. However, after seeing what plans Nintendo has for this mode, and how often it will be available, I am willing to rescind ...

Sound BlasterX Kratos S5 Speaker Review from Creative

It's been a little while since we dove in and looked at a standalone speaker system from Creative. Our last few speaker reviews have all been of the Bluetooth and NFC variety, so to get back to traditional speakers is amazing! The Sound BlasterX Kratos S5 speaker from Creative has been available for a while, but still is a great system for the low price of 129.99. This PC setup will make a great addition to anyone's office space, and although we have a few issues with the system as a whole, ...

 

Splatoon 2 Review

Not many games entice me to be online often like Splatoon 2 when it comes to Nintendo products. Even with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I generally spend way more time offline with friends locally, than online with strangers! I suck at first person shooters, and I generally play adventure title, almost exclusively. About there is something unique about Splatoon that makes me come back again and again, and I'm not sure I can put my finger on one reason why. Whether it's the online modes, Salmon Run, ...

More Thoughts From Me #77: Another Look At RPG Maker FES

Not that long ago, I did a review of RPG Maker FES for the 3DS. The object of the game, of course, is to make rpgs. You can also download rpgs that other people have made and play them.

Great Support for 2DS/3DS From Nintendo

Nintendo generally always has a good pulse on what the audience thinks about their products, and often will adjust course to meet those high expectations. I strongly feel like that is why we got the Nintendo Switch when we did, and also the reason why Nintendo continues to support the 2DS and 3DS despite the Switch beginning to encroach on that on-the-go Nintendo territory. We know all about the Switch and what support it has, but what about the 3DS. Well, for those fans, things are looking ...
