forma.8 Review

The Metroidvania genre is pretty popular these days. A lot of developers want to create a great game in the style of Metroid and Castlevania. Some developers succeed at this while others only create pale imitations. forma.8 for Nintendo Switch is a Metroidvania game for the eshop. Is it a good one or should you avoid it altogether? forma.8 begins with a mysterious cutscene that sets up the game. This scene doesn’t really explain anything about what is going on.…

Sonic Mania Review

When I heard another Sonic game was going to be release, I - along with almost everyone else - was pretty skeptical as things have not been great as of late for the blue blur. That being said, I've looked forward to every Sonic release since first playing the games back on the SEGA Genesis, so despite having some reservation about how this title would perform, I had some nostalgic excitement none-the-less. After going through most of the game, enjoying numerous bosses and bonus stages, I can say this is the happiest I've been playing a Sonic game in a long ...

Namco Museum Review

If you are old - and we are talking born in the 70s - you probably remember playing a number of classic arcade games like Dig Dug, Pacman, and of course, Galaga. If you ever really enjoyed these early 80s and 90s games, you can now get a good number of them in the Namco Museum title which recently released on Nintendo Switch. Included in Namco Museum are the following titles:

Overcooked: Special Edition Review

Overcooked has been available before, but players were tied to their consoles if they wanted to play. With the Special Edition launch on the Nintendo Switch, Overcooked is now available on the go, and it is one of the best, handheld/tabletop Nintendo Switch experiences to date. While the game will pose strong challenges to those playing by themselves, it's still incredibly rewarding to complete each level, and even more rewarding when getting the full three stars! Multiplayer, however, is definitely where this game shines.

I and Me Review

I and Me is a beautiful and charming puzzle game that is sure to make you smile more than once as you play through the numerous levels. Although perhaps it would have been nice to have more content, what is available for players to enjoy is sufficient enough to warrant its own release. Overall, I and Me is something any puzzle fan should consider picking up!

Splatoon 2 Review

Not many games entice me to be online often like Splatoon 2 when it comes to Nintendo products. Even with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, I generally spend way more time offline with friends locally, than online with strangers! I suck at first person shooters, and I generally play adventure title, almost exclusively. About there is something unique about Splatoon that makes me come back again and again, and I'm not sure I can put my finger on one reason why. Whether it's the online modes, Salmon Run, or the single player campaign, there is always something to do in ...

ARMS Review

If you haven't heard or played ARMS yet on the Nintendo Switch, there is a good chance you've been living under a rock. Although initially fans were unsure what to think, recent Testpunch events have changed the opinion of many, making ARMS one of the most intriguing releases this year. If ARMS was simply a 1v1 fighting game, perhaps it wouldn't have much mainstream success, but with the addition of many new modes and features, ARMS is poised to be one of Nintendo's biggest hits in 2017!

Disgaea 5 Complete Review

Disgaea 5 Complete on the Nintendo Switch isn't a game that I was really looking forward to, but media friends pushed me to give it a try calling it one of the best turn-based strategy games available to date. With reluctance, I began my review, and it wasn't long before I was hooked on the depth of strategy presented to me during each and every battle. Even for those who think turn based strategies aren't for them, I would strongly recommend giving Disgaea 5 a go. You probably will be pleasantly surprised.

But what happens when you want to bring your Switch on vacation, or to a friends house? There are only a few official options right now, and the Everywhere Messenger Bag from PowerA is…

PowerA Joy-Con Grip

Last week, PowerA was nice enough to send over a box full of great Nintendo Switch accessories, and this week we will be reviewing each and every one of them! Yesterday, we showed the incredible value of the PowerA Joy-Con Charging Dock which charges up to 4 Joy-Con controllers at one time. Today, we are looking at a less necessary accessory, although one that you might want to pick up anyways. Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers are fairly expensive, so many…
