More Thoughts From Me #215: Be Prepared For Delays

I’ve been hesitant to write this column. I don’t really like to write negatively in this column. But I see a lot of people hoping for this game or that game. We see rumors all the time.

Thronebreaker feat

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Switch Review

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a role-playing game that heavily incorporates a revamped version of Gwent, the card game featured in the Witcher games. Originally released in 2018 on PC and consoles, Thronebreaker has now made its way to the Nintendo Switch! While it does incorporate the card game, Thronebreaker is much more than that. Featuring a 30+ hour campaign, the game plays very much like a typical isometric RPG. How will these juxtaposed styles mash into a game, and how will they play out on the Switch? Let's take a look and find out!

More Thoughts From Me #214: I Believe In Tetris 99

When I first played Tetris 99, I didn’t like it. It was multiplayer only and had no single player. Sure it was free, but thats pretty much all it had going for it. But recently I wanted a Tetris on my Switch and I knew that the game had paid DLC where you could get single player! So I decided to get the game and the DLC. What a great decision! Tetris 99 is a blast. The single player marathon…

Indie World Showcase 3.17.2020 (video)

Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase just aired! We have the video below and some thoughts on it too. This Indie World Showcase was a lot better than then the last one in my opinion.

Darksiders Genesis feat

Darksiders Genesis Review

In a major departure from the rest of the franchise, Darksiders Genesis is a top-down, button-mashing action game that follows War and Strife, two of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. While the series has received much praise for its storyline, humour and simple but addictively fun gameplay – there was much uncertainty around how the new top-down style would translate to the franchise. Will this major change be a smooth transition or will it detract from an already stellar series? Let’s take a look and find out!

More Thoughts From Me #209: A Touryst Visits the Switch

I’m a sucker for simulation games. I’m also a sucker for puzzle games and Adventure games. So what if one game had elements of all three? How would I feel about such a game? The Touryst for Nintendo Switch is the game I’m talking about and here are my impressions of it so far. The Touryst is a puzzle game at its heart. There are so many puzzles in this game. And yet is also has a bit of the…
