Legend of Zelda Game and Watch Review

When the Super Mario 35th Anniversary Game and Watch released last year, you can add my name to the group of folks who said, “Why do I need a Game and Watch?” And while I understand that these items should be looked at as more a collectors item than actual game machine, I could help but want both. So I passed. This year, to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Legend of Zelda, Nintendo of Canada was nice enough to…

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond Review-in-progress

Our full review of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond isn’t ready yet but we thought we’d talk more about the game. Where are we? Is the game still good? We will try not to give too many spoilers in this review-in-progress! Note: none of the pictures here are from the area hinted at in the article. I feel like throwing my Nintendo Switch. Pokémon Brilliant Diamond has had some hard battles here and there, but mostly, I didn’t find it too challenging…

Classic Board Games for Kids – Carcassonne and Catan

When we talk about board games, for years people would assume you were getting friends together to play Monopoly, Scrabble, The Game of Life, or something like that. Two games came onto the marketplace that have now entered that conversation, those being Settlers of Catan and Carcassonne. Both games have their intended audiences, and unfortunately that isn't children. It wasn't until development teams familiar with both titles decided to put together kids versions of these board game giants, and they both are magnificent. Let's take a look at why these are ...

Can Grow: Song of the Evertree Overcome a Slow Start – Yes it Can

With limited time to play and review games, there are a number of things that can make me put down a review build of a title and walk away. One of those things is when a game just cannot seem to get out of it's own way and let players...play! And that was almost the case with Grow: Song of the Evertree, and if it wasn't for my love of these style of games - Hello Harvest Moon and Story of Seasons! - I probably would have quit within the first 2 hours. Fortunately for me, I didn't!

Before We Leave Handles City Building with Ease on Xbox Series X

Before We Leave, a fun and deep city builder from Team 17 lands on Xbox today, and I have been playing it for the better part of a week. And I'll admit off the top that I was really skeptical of how this game would run on console. When it comes to strategy games on console, only two have really worked in my opinion: Planet Coaster (which I played on the PlayStation 5), and Two Point Hospital (which I played on Nintendo Switch). So the question became - could I find a equally fun experience on Xbox and love it? Let's take a look.

Halo Infinite – First Impressions

At long last, Microsoft’s long-awaited Xbox Series launch title is here. Halo Infinite is a year late and, in fact, arriving after Forza Horizon 5 and Psychonauts 2, but better late than never. And, actually, it has been a long time since Halo has felt this good. The multiplayer mode for Halo Infinite was shadowdropped during the Xbox 20th anniversary celebrations on Monday. Technically still a beta, it is the full release in every way except name. You can get…

Airborne Kingdom is a City Building Gem

When it comes to city builders on consoles, the results are generally poor. Even if the game is rock solid, the controls don't often translate well to controllers. These are games primarily built for a mouse and keyboard. Yet somehow Airborne Kingdom deals with those issues with ease, and provides a fantastic experience that is a must play for any city building fan.
