Why Nintendo Announced So Much

The latest Nintendo Direct has just ended, and I’ve seen a number of people asking why Nintendo has announced so many new titles with the Switch 2 potentially less than 12 months away. A lot of amazing things were announced, so let’s highlight a few of the newer titles and then discuss why so much is happening in 2024. Mario + Luigi – this is a fantastic series, although it has been left on a handheld system until now. I’ve…

Oh my goodness. Now that was a Nintendo Direct!! Let’s talk about it. Wow! I can’t believe how amazing that Nintendo Direct was. It was the best Direct we’ve had in….. awhile for sure. Let’s start at the start: a brand new Mario and Luigi game! Oh wow. I wasn’t expecting that. It looked wonderful too. I can’t wait to play that. There were plenty other surprises too.

Bitoku Board Game Review

Looking at Bitoku, you would be forgiven if you thought you were in for one of the most complicated games of your life. While on the surface this appears to be true, once you’ve learned the turn-by-turn structure of the game, things begin to flow really well and then it’s just about decisions, as opposed to wondering what might happen if you do x, y or z. Bitoku still isn’t a light game, and is probably bordering on that heavy…

Bring All Your Retro Games to Steam

The original Resident Evil has been rated for a release on Steam, and it’s the most ridiculous thing ever that it isn’t already a thing. Think about it. You have a giant library of games from the last 30 years just sitting there. The average PC gamer has it open by default. They want games to buy, and the rights holders… just do nothing? Yes, the REmake is available for purchase. But that’s not enough. Steam should have all the…

Doomlings Expansions Overview and Thoughts

Doomlings was a game my family really enjoyed, and I’m so glad that the company sent over a copy of the game for us to play. Honestly, it is a game I’ve been looking at for a long time, and while I’m not opposed to purchasing games myself, we have so many come through the office that even if I do purchase games, they often sit in shrink for months. With a review opportunity, I HAD to play Doomlings, and…

Will Starfield Ever Catch a Break?

Starfield is just okay. That’s the biggest sin a game can make in today’s reaction-led world. But those reactions are starting to wear a little bit thin. Reviews on Steam are negative again after an update added some paid mods to the game. Skyrim and Fallout 4 both have these mods, and they’re completely optional. And yet it’s another case of Starfield living rent free in some people’s heads. I should clarify that I found much of the critique around…

Ever wanted to know what it would feel like to have some of our favorite larger titled games, like Super Mario or Kirby in a Metroidvania setting? I know that I have many times.

Biomorph is currently the talk of every Metroidvania community and that’s because while we wait ...

 

9.0 A Sci-Fi, 2D Platformer, Shooter,...

 

Developed by Evan Tor Games and published by JanduSoft, this is a Sci-Fi mystery shooter that everyone has to try. Rebel Transmute is the Metroid of our year. It is a take on a classic Metroidvania with a kick of colors and extreme exploration. While it is revolutionized, I think that the graphics and audio really kicks us off back into the feel of the 90s, giving both old and new gamers something to enjoy. The ...

 
 

9.0 Demon’s Souls

 

You may have heard that Demon’s Souls is pretty tough. That’s not entirely accurate. The truth is that Demon’s Souls is very, very simple. Everything about it is signposted. It wants you to exploit every inch of it. Enemies show what they’re doing from a million miles away. There’s always somewhere to hide, or to run to. And now, with the arrival of the remake on PS5, you have over ...

 

8.0 Walking Dead Season 2

 

Last year, Telltale elevated point and click games to a new level with their first season of the award-winning The Walking Dead. Creating a follow-up to that fantastic set of titles was a difficult task for Telltale, and they mostly succeeded. While there are moments of brilliance, season two doesn’t reach the level of excellence that season one was able to achieve.

 

6.5 NASCAR ’14

 

Racing games can generally be played in a variety of ways. While those that love Gran Turismo the most might play it as a simulator, it's just as easy to experience it as some approximation of Mario Kart, crashing into other vehicles on long bends or swinging onto the grass when necessary. NASCAR '14 is all about tight lines and clever driving, a fact that makes it both very playable and undoubtedly niche.

 

9.0 Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster

 

Cybernet was a video game focussed TV show here in the UK back when the PS2 launched. When they weren't showing and reshowing the opening of Metal Gear Solid 2, they were showing and reshowing clips from Final Fantasy X. Look at the graphics! Look at the characters! And, oh, they've got voices as well!

 

6.5 Pac-Man Museum

 

Video gaming's first yellow circular celebrity has turned 30 this year, and instead of getting trashed with friends Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde, he's taking a trip down memory lane, through the highlights (and low-lights) of his prestigious career.

 

6.5 Killer is Dead

 

Killer is Dead is a hard game to pin down. You play as an executioner for a government agency that hunts out murderers for the general public. It plays a little like something from Platinum, a third-person action game with an anime flair. That flair runs deeper than just the visual style though, and a unique fantastical twist makes it all the more unusual. Expect blood, whimsy, sex, adventure and intrigue.

 
 

8 Sea of Thieves PS5

Stellar Blade, the latest exclusive to hit the PS5, is a game of contrasts.

7.5 Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

 

The biggest change to the Borderlands formula in Pre-Sequel - aside from the game's setting, which affects gameplay and aesthetics in a number of ways - are the game's character classes, all based on characters previously seen in the series. These new classes will still serve familiar roles on the battlefield

6.5 Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare

 

PopCap did a lot of things right when they developed Plants vs Zombies for every platform imaginable - Mac, PC, Xbox, Playstation, DS, iOS, and Android - and the success of that game has led to multiple sequels.

When it comes to phone reviews and GamesReviews, you know we focus on these devices as things for the common person, those wanting to play games, listen to some music, and watch some videos. We look at these not from a technical standpoint, but rather a useability stand point. It’s why, I believe, our phone reviews over the past few years have been so successful. This phone is definitely not for the common ...

With the upcoming launch of Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch, we thought we would re-share some of our old Xenoblade Chronicles reviews, starting with Xenoblade Chronicles X on the Nintendo Wii U! If you haven't played this game, and have access to a Wii U, it's a fantastic experience!

 

6.5 Revenant Saga

 

Revenant Saga is rpg developer KEMCO's newest game for the Wii U. I played this game and now I can tell you all about it! Is Revenant Saga a good rpg?

 

6.5 Animal Gods

 

Wii U indie games are starting to become a rare thing. Whenever a new Wii U game comes out, I find myself smiling and hoping that its a good game. Anmal Gods for Wii U came out last week. I have been playing it for review and I'm finally ready to share with what I thought of the game.

 

8.5 Back to Bed

 

One of the best things about Indies is that they are not afraid of being weird. Indies generally take more chances than third party developers and create games that are unique and interesting. Not all of these unique and interesting games are good, but I love how Indies are willing to experiment. Take, for instance, Back to Bed for Wii U. You would not see a third party, maybe not even a first party developer, ...

 

8.0 Plantera

 

If Harvest Moon and a cute 2D tower defense game had a love child, it might look like Plantera for the Wii U and 3DS eshops. Build a garden, add animals, and defend that garden like crazy from outside threats! Plantera sounds like it might be a good game for simulation and tower defense fans…but is it? The Wii U and 3DS versions of Plantera have some differences but the basic gameplay is the same between ...

 
 

4.0 Z-Run

 

To many people, the Playstation Vita is a system known best for only its Indies and its ports. When I saw the trailer for Vita Indie game Z-Run, I was shocked to find out it wasn't a port from a mobile game. With its poor visuals, simple Temple Run style gameplay and lack of depth, I was sure that Z-Run was a zombie re-skin of some dime-a-dozen endless runner, build for mobile technology and quickly ported to ...

 

8.5 Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc

 

Danganronpa Trigger Happy Havoc is a zany experience filled with boundless creativity. Developed by Spike Chunsoft (the studio responsible for similar games in the Zero Escape series), and originally released for the PSP all the way back in 2010, Danganronpa has spawned an anime and manga over in Japan before its port to the Vita this year; and it’s easy to see why.

 

8.0 Surge Deluxe

 

The match 3 puzzle genre has been lacking innovation as of late. Thankfully, Futurlab has an extraordinary habit of changing up the ‘norm’ and Surge Deluxe is certainly no exception!!

 

9.0 Tearaway

 

Tearaway is, simply put, a creative gem. It’s a game solely created to showcase the power of Vita’s hardware, and just how pleasant of an experience a videogame can be.

 

8.0 Street Fighter X Tekken

 

Street Fighter X Tekken was kind of a big deal when it was first announced, and perhaps even helped the Mortal Kombat remake to herald in a new wave of fighting titles. Along with its companion title, the long presumed dead Tekken X Street Fighter, Street Fighter X Tekken was going to combine two of the biggest names in fighting, dozens of the most recognisable characters, all within a blended style that meant ...

 

9.5 Persona 4 Golden

 

Atlus has always been known to deliver niche JRPG experiences; games that don’t sell well but are critical darlings. They have plenty of exceptional titles under their belt such as Catherine and Shin Megami Tensei IV, but Persona 4 is quite possibly their finest work yet. The fourth entry in the Persona series originally made its debut on the PS2 back in 2008. The game was met with immense critical reception, so ...

 
 

9.0 Yo-Kai Watch 3

 

Although the Yo-Kai Watch franchise is gaining some traction in the West - more so in Europe and less so in the United States and Canada - there are still many gamers and anime fans out there who know little, if anything, about the franchise itself. To them, the name Jibanyan and Whisper mean nothing, and if you mention the town of Springdale, most people are likely to ask, "Do you mean Springfield, like in the ...

 

9.0 Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s I...

 

In my preview for Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser's Jr's Journey I mentioned that I had never played Bowser's Inside Story before. So when it came time to do my review, I decided to not compare the game to the original. In fact, I decided to not compare the game to previous Mario & Luigi games at all. Basically I wanted to ask: Is Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr's Journey a good game(s)?

 

8.0 WarioWare Gold

 

I’ve been playing video games for a few decades now, and I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never played a WarioWare game in my life. When the game launched a few weeks ago, I began watching video of our good friend Abdallah Smash, and instantly thought, “That looks like a lot of fun.” Well, now I have played it; what did I think? Let’s dive in!

 

9.5 Dragon Lapis

 

I’ve been enjoying Dragon Lapis for the 3DS a lot. Check out my preview of the game here. And now its time for my review of Dragon Lapis. Is this a 3DS rpg that you’ll want to download? I like how Dragon Lapis starts with a cutscene that gives us background into its world. As the game continues, we get a lot more world building and interesting plot twists. All of the characters in this game are ...

 

8.0 Detective Pikachu

 

Even if you are not a long time fan of the Pokémon franchise, there is one thing you probably do know: Pokémon don’t talk to humans and humans don’t talk to Pokémon. Sure, based on emotions of a Pokémon - or even their actions - a good trainer can determine what a Pokémon is thinking or feeling; but to actually talk to one? That is basically unheard of. So when we learned about the popular Japanese Detective ...

 

7.0 Machine Knight

 

There are not too many developers releasing 3DS eshop games at anymore. Most of the developers have switched over to the Switch. One of the developers that it is still putting out games for the 3DS is KEMCO. Their newest game for the system is called Machine Knight. It is a jrpg. What do I think of it? Read on to find out! Machine Knight has an interesting story, although I do wish it had a little less ...

7 Cartel Tycoon

 

Cartel Tycoon, now available on Xbox Series X/S, invites players on a morally dubious yet undeniably captivating journey to the top of the drug cartel hierarchy. Channeling the gritty essence of 80s and 90s narco culture, this management sim offers a complex and often challenging experience. While the subject matter may raise ethical concerns, Cartel Tycoon injects a unique twist into the genre, but with some ...

Moving Out 2 Impressions

Moving Out 2 bursts onto the scene, not with the careful maneuvering of a seasoned mover, but with the joyous recklessness of a toddler with a box full of pillows. This sequel to the sleeper hit party game takes the core concept of furniture flinging mayhem and cranks it up to eleven. Buckle up, grab a friend (or three!), because things are about to get wonderfully, disastrously messy. At its heart, Moving Out 2 remains a physics-based co-op puzzler. You…

Rolling Hills: Make Sushi, Make Friends Impressions

Rolling Hills: Make Sushi, Make Friends isn’t your typical restaurant simulator.
