Colorful Rainbow Billy Already Shines

Last night, I received a review code for Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan for the Nintendo Switch. I’m still very early on in the game, but I had talk about it! This game already has me hooked. Rainbow Billy: The Curse of the Leviathan feels like a Nickelodeon cartoon mixed with Paper Mario: Color Splash and the Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. It an action, adventure rpg where you are tasked with restoring color to the world while…

Far Cry 6 Features – OCD Players Beware

Far Cry 6 has been one of my favourite games this year - I've enjoyed the story, how it unfolds, and the cool people you meet along the way. These are all staples of the Far Cry franchise, and most open world Ubisoft franchises for that matter. But the more I play Far Cry 6, the more I became concerned. "I'm not clearing the map! WHY AM I NOT CLEARING THE MAP!"

Far Cry 6 Features – Using a Smart Phone in Far Cry 6

Is 2021, and Far Cry 6 is helping us do what we already do in real life all the time - play on our phones, a lot. In previous Far Cry games, we often would use a set of binoculars to scout out enemy bases, tagging enemies, and more. That made a ton of sense, and was enjoyable enough of an experience. While I'm happy that the new tagging system highlights the weaknesses of enemies, I'm having a bit of difficulty extending my belief to tagging using a camera on a cell phone.

We just got a review code for the game yesterday and here are our first thoughts on Astria Ascending for the Nintendo Switch. Astria Ascending is a turn-based jrpg. The combat is about what you’d expect: pick Attack, guard, special attack, etc from a menu. You can also switch characters…

Alan Wake Remastered Review

There are some games that breathe atmosphere, although arguably not nearly enough. It’s really more of a film or book thing, and yet occasionally a title comes along and surprises you. Alan Wake was one of those titles in 2010 - and its remaster remains impressed 11 years later.

More Thoughts From Me #281: Gotta Catch ‘Em All?

When I tell people I don’t like Pokémon, they are a bit surprised. I’m a Nintendo fan.  People think if you’re a fan of the company you probably like all their franchises, especially Pokémon! Who doesn’t like Pokémon? Well, I don’t. Why is that? And what am I thinking about the new games? Read on if you dare! I’ve tried to get into Pokémon. I played the 3DS demos, I’ve looked at footage, and of course played some non-rpg  games.…
