Syberia 1 to be released on Nintendo Switch in October

I love Adventure games. I’m not much of a PC gamer but I use to play point-and-click games a lot. And I’m always interested in Adventure games on consoles too. A few years ago, I played a game called Syberia on one of Xbox systems I believe. I thought it was a really odd and very cool game. Syberia was an old school Adventure/puzzle game. We don’t see those type of games too often anymore. So it pleases me to…

Last Day of June Review

About a week head of launch, 505 games sent out a press swag bag to promote the launch of Last Day of June. Knowing this was the same team that published Portal Knights - a game I really loved - I jumped at the opportunity to get a hold of their next published game. When the care package arrived at the door, it included three items: a short note written on a card from 505 Games, a pair of glasses that matched the ones Carl wears in the game, and a box of tissues. The second I saw the tissues, I knew that, in their eyes at least, 505 Games saw Last Day of ...

Observer Review

The thrilling video game marketplace has been steadily growing for the last 15-20 years, and Observer is just the latest in a long run of cyber-punk games to enter this particular marketplace. Creating a great thriller title for console is fairly hard - movies work because the directors have all the say, but in video games, you the player decide what to do and where to go, which can take away from the intended experience. Thankfully, during my play through of Observer, I rarely felt this to be the case!

Nindies Summer Showcase 2017

Nintendo of America did a Nindies Summer Showcase video presentation today. A lot of games were shown off. Check out the video below and please come back for my opinion of the showcase and the games shown. The Nindies Summer Showcase today was really good. I wasn’t sure it would be at first because I didn’t find the initial games that impressive (Super Meat Boy Forever looked ok, but not my sort of game). But then we got big news…

Zoink and EA Will Bring FE to Nintendo Switch

When I played Stick It to the Man on Wii U, I became a Zoink! fan. The developer has such an odd and wonderful sense of humor in their games. I never did get to play Zombie Vikings since it wasn’t on a Nintendo platform but it looked great too! And now, I’m happy to report that one of Zoink’s upcoming games, FE, has been announced for the Nintendo Switch. FE, an upcoming game from Zoink!, has been announced for…

More Thoughts From Me Special Edition: I Have A Switch!

I thought I wasn’t going to get a Nintendo Switch till Christmas. And then, one day recently, I found out we were able to get a Nintendo Switch! We called up Gamestop and found out that they had two systems left. We went over there, picked up the system, a 64 GB micro SD card, and two games! I came home and…well, let me tell you about it in the rest of my column ok? Welcome to a More Thoughts…
