Miitopia Demo First Impressions

Miitopia started life as a Mii-focused rpg on the 3DS. And now is coming to the Nintendo Switch! Today, Nintendo announced and released a demo for the Switch version.

So I admit when it was announced that the game was…

At $199, the Switch Lite is a great option…

More Thoughts From Me #267: Another Tales

Another column, another PS Now game. This time I want to talk about Tales of Zestiria. In another column, I talked about a previous Tales of game called Tales of Vesperia which I enjoyed. What do I think of Tales of Zestiria? I think I like Tales of Zestiria more than Tales of Vesperia.

More Thoughts From Me #265: Closing Down the (Digital) Shop

Ruinverse

KEMCO has released a lot of jrpgs for the Nintendo Switch. The newest one is called Ruinverse. It a traditional turn-based jrpg. Is it worth checking out? Let’s take a look! The battle system is very traditional, although it does have some neat combo attacks thrown in. If you are a fan of SNES jrpgs, than you might fine Ruinverse’s gameplay, especially its battle system, interesting. Its story, however, is pretty odd. I think it takes a lot of inspiration…
