Welcome to Paradise: A Look At Castaway Paradise for Nintendo Switch

A storm hits and your boat is destroyed. You wash up on a shore and finish yourself surrounded by animals. Welcome to Castaway Paradise for the Nintendo Switch! The game is out today.

Pac-man 99 is available for Nintendo Switch Online owners and I’ve been a playing it a little. What do I think? Do you have 99 hours? Kidding! I do have some thoughts though.

Blue Nintendo Switch Lite to Launch on May 21st

The Nintendo Switch Lite is about to get a brand new color soon: blue! The new version of the Lite will come out on May 21st, the same day as Miitopia for the Switch. I really like the look of this new color. Personally I think its the best color yet. It looks much better than the teal Switch Lite for sure. Maybe better than the yellow or red one too. At $199, the Switch Lite is a great option…

Cozy Grove Review-in-Progress Part 1

For a little more insight into what Cozy Grove is, check out my first impressions article from yesterday. Today I want to talk about Cozy Grove’s graphics! Cozy Grove is a cute, colorful cartoon-like game. If you’ve ever played Don’t Starve, the graphics are a bit like that game expect not as dark and stormy looking. Basically Cozy Grove lives up to its name: it is cozy. The graphics are like a warm blanket that gets even more comfortable when…
