Yoto Player – A Kids Smart Speaker?

A few weeks ago I was over at my sister's house and saw her kids playing with the Yoto player. After a few questions, I realized that it was basically a device that could play books to your kids, but without the temptations of a screen. Cool, I thought. Fast forward a few weeks and my own Yoto player dropped on my doorstep. Is this device all it's cracked up to be? Let's take a look!

I Never Played The Last of Us – Then I Did

I've never been a huge Sony PlayStation fan. If you know me, you've known that fact for a long time. I was a Nintendo kid growing up, switched over to the Xbox during my formative teen years, and swung hard back to the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch after I got married and had kids. So many PlayStation franchises were lost on me, but having the PlayStation 5 in my house has been amazing. Why? I get to experience some of the best single player experiences ...

Cardline Animals Review

I love simplistic games that can also teach something valuable, and that is exactly what Cardline Animals does. The goal of the game is to take all your cards from your line of cards and slot them into the "cardline" before your opponents. But how exactly do you get cards down on the table? Let's take a look!

EPOS Relaunches Less Expensive, Improved GTW 270 Hybrid

Back in March of 2021, we took at a look at the GTW 270 Hybrid gaming earbuds from EPOS. Event at the $200 USD price point, we said that overall the earbuds were of exceptional quality, sounded great, but had a few things we didn't enjoy, most notably the inability to use them for chat when playing on console. It's now 2022, and the relaunched EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid is not only better, but cheaper too!

Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life Release Summer 2023

It's A Wonderful Life was one of my favourite Harvest Moon games, and one of the best games I played on my Nintendo GameCube. I sunk hours and hours into this experience, and was handsomely rewarded with a fun experience. I recently hopped back into the game for a few streams last year, and it did not hold up as much as I thought it would. Today, it was a nice surprise to see Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life being remade for the Nintendo Switch.

How to Reach Blocked Areas in Disney Dreamlight Valley

If you are anything like me, you've been sinking hours and hours into Disney Dreamlight Valley. Even with all the crashes and issues on Nintendo Switch, it's a game I'm having a lot of fun with, and a game I can't wait to experience more of. As an early access game, there are a few things that need to be worked out, most of which are resulting in a negative game experience for players. There is one glitch, however, that can come in handy - using Wells to get to ...

Unlock! Kids Detective Stories Review

My wife and I have played through almost all of the Unlock! experiences, whether they be random mysteries or those themed around Star Wars. We really enjoy playing them, but doing so does leave out the younger members of the family. With Unlock! Kids, we can have a similar unlock experience but one that we can enjoy with our 8 year old, Lochlan. So how does Unlock! Kid hold up against the original? Let's take a look.

Disney Dreamlight Valley a Mixed Bag on Nintendo Switch

The verdict is in, and people love Disney Dreamlight Valley. Add me to that list, although my experience on Nintendo Switch has been less than ideal. Issues on the Nintendo Switch seem to be lumped into two categories - those that seem to be impacting everyone, and those that seem to impact only a few people. Still, even with the issues, it is a game I just can't seem to put down as I work to welcome all my Disney friends to the Valley!

Explorers Board Game Review

Simple roll-and-write games, flip-and-write games, etc. are a dime a dozen it seems. Some are really good, others are really bad, and most hover in that middle category of just being OK. The popularity of these games is due to how inexpensive they are to produce, and therefore, purchase. When we got our hands on Explorers, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. After playing it multiple times over the past few weeks, I'm glad it is in my collection.

Splatoon 3 Review

Splatoon 3 is easily one of Nintendo's most anticipated games of this year, and definitely the biggest this fall / holiday season. The primarily online paint shooter has become wildly popular through the first two releases, and Nintendo is looking to cash in on that success again here. Many would argue the jump from Splatoon to Splatoon 2 was pretty minor, so how do things shape up as we move towards the launch of Splatoon 3? Let's find out!
