Does Donkey Kong Make an Appearance This Summer?

With E3 once again shelved for 2022, we can assume that Nintendo will still release some type of Nintendo Direct between now and August. With big games coming this summer, the next Direct will be looking at games coming in the future. We likely will get an extended look at Breath of the Wild 2, Spatoon 3, and other titles. But one game I think Nintendo fans NEED to see is something within the Donkey Kong universe.

Parkasaurus is Wildly Fun

Over the years, classic Tycoon games have evolved into deep, sometimes daunting experiences that don't necessarily capture the joy and simplicity of the early days. While I loved the original Roller Coaster Tycoon, Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, and Zoo Tycoon games on PC, the moment that Zoo Tycoon was released on Xbox, Planet Zoo on PC, and Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 and future titles across multiple platforms, I was disinterested in the franchise. Parkasaurus is ...

Two New Short Trailers for Mario Strikers: Battle League

Nintendo doesn't shy away from quietly dropping new trailers for upcoming games, and although the two posted yesterday combine for less than one minute of air time, they are still a welcome sight for those looking forward to the first Mario Strikers game in a very long time. With the game just a few weeks away, it's time to take a deeper - and yet still brief - dive into more things the game will offer!

Why Diamond Dynasty is Great, but not for Everyone

Whenever a new sports game drops in the Roffel household, I can guarantee you that one mode always gets played more than others. In NHL, it will be Hockey Ultimate Team, and in FIFA (now EA FC) it will always be Football Ultimate Team. So, when PlayStation Canada sent over a copy of MLB The Show 22, I figured Diamond Dynasty would be my go-to mode. And it was, for a bit.

Playmobil Review – Water Park with Slides

Last year, the fantastic folks at Playmobil were nice enough to send over their early learning Playmobil sets, 1-2-3 Aqua which my 2.5 year old son absolutely loved. Unlike regular Playmobil, no small pieces were included with these sets that we reviewed. Everything was really big and chunky, easy to grab and easy to play with. He had a blast. Now at 3.5 years old, he's begun to invest more of his time in more complex Playmobil sets, and because of his love for ...

Switch Throwback – How Good was Little Dragons Cafe?

Over the past few weeks, I've been diving into my Nintendo Switch library to play some old games that I haven't touched in a long time. One of those games was the highly anticipated Little Dragons Café, and while I remember being disappointed with the game when it first launched, I'm really enjoying it now.

Mini Motorways the Perfect Switch Experience

The one good thing about subscription services is that you can get a lot of games for one somewhat low monthly price. The bad news is when games launch on a subscription service and that is the ONLY way to play them. That's how it is for many games on Apple Arcade, and while these games do often make it to other platforms, it can take a long time. That is the case for Mini Motorways, a game available on Apple Arcade for a long whie now, and just recently ...

Google Pixel Watch is Finally Coming

Ever since Google began making their Pixel lineup of phones, the rumours have always been strong about the possibility of getting a Google Pixel Watch. And for years, we hold our breath as these Google summits happen, and sign when they end without mention of a Pixel Watch. Until this years, when during their Google I/O event, the company finally unveiled the most anticipated Google Pixel product ever, the Google Pixel Watch.

Google Surprises with Pixel 7 Details, Announces Pixel 6a

The last thing I thought would come from today's Google I?O event was anything about a brand new Pixel device. Sure, I sort of assumed we may see something about a Pixel 6a, but not anything about a new generation of Pixel devices. So when the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro popped up on the screen - releasing this fall - I was pleasantly surprised and really excited.
