Dealing With a Lack of Games

January and early February is always  bit slow for the video game industry. Big titles always hit right before the holidays, or they come out in closer to the beginning of March in the following year. We have had a few great games like Fire Emblem Engage, and soon Hogwarts Legacy, but until now, consoles might have been collecting dust for some consumers. So where do you turn when everything seems so boring and old? A lot of folks go…

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake Review

SpongeBob SquarePants was never a big part of my childhood, and it's really not something my kids watch now. That being said, when the Battle for Bikini Bottom game released on Nintendo Switch last year, my kids had a great time with it. They were equally as excited to hear that a brand new game was coming, and from our viewpoint, the wait was worth it. While the majority of our review play time was completed by my eight year old, I still think the opinions ...

With Updates, Tribes of Midgard is One of the Best

Recently, Tribes of Midgard got a free update called the Witch Saga expansion. While I’d love to wax poetic about how awesome this update is, the fact is I’ve never played this game before, so any improvements that were made to the experience are things I wouldn’t know. That being said, Tribes of Midgard might just be my next go-to experience for the next little while, and I am very OK with that.

How does Zelda Impact a New Nintendo Switch Launch

We are only just a few months away from The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on Nintendo Switch. Over the past few months, Switch sales have started to slide, signaling that something new is likely around the corner. Nintendo's concrete plans for 2023 seem a bit lacking, although knowing Nintendo that will change quickly. But will Zelda be the reason Nintendo launches - or doesn't launch - a brand new Switch?

Wingspan Asia – A Two Player Variation Worth Playing

If you haven't played Wingspan or read our review of the original game or expansions, you can find those linked in this article. We absolutely loved the original game, and equally loved the Oceania expansion and the Birds of Europe expansion. As I work through this review of Wingspan Asia, I'm going to assume you have an understanding of how Wingspan works - if you are unfamiliar, go back and read that review. Otherwise, let's get going!

Is 2023 the Year We Get a New Donkey Kong?

Rumours swirl every time a Nintendo Direct happens. One rumour that doesn't seem to want to die is that the Mario Odyssey team is actually working on a brand new Donkey Kong adventure, ala Donkey Kong 64. As the Mario Odyssey team made arguably the best 3D Super Mario game ever, we all know they would KILL at making a great Donkey Kong game. So what would that look like?

A Good Dragon Taming Game? | My Universe: My Baby Dragon

The My Universe games are polarizing, and often fit next to games like those from Outright Games. Games that look great, but perhaps some would argue that they lack gameplay and mechanics that most other games in these genres have. Take it from someone who has spent a lot of time playing htese games - for what you pay, the experiences are excellent, and yes, geared towards kids. So is My Universe: My Baby Dragon a solid dragon taming experience? Or one that ...

Horse Tales First Impression (Post Update)

When I first got down and played Horse Tales on Nintendo Switch, I was a bit disappointed in the experience. Sure, exploring the area around Emerald Valley Ranch was fun, and upgrading the ranch itself was also really great. But there were major graphical issues, problems with the controls, and so much more that made it go from a highly anticipated title to a less than ideal experience.

Let's take a look at Access+ Timeline.
