Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game Review

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game has been a mythical beat ’em up for awhile. It couldn’t be bought on modern consoles. Those who had it on old systems either guarded those systems with their life or they no longer had this game. And now Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game is on the Nintendo Switch (and other systems). Is this mythical game as good as people say or has nostalgia lead us astray? I’ll be honest with…

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Review

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 – a game title that deserves a Kingdom Hearts style “2.5D Ultima Super Dream Final Edition” if I’ve ever heard one. People know what Tetris is, and a good chunk of those will know what Puyo Puyo is if you explain it in Mean Bean Machine terms. It says what it is, for better or for worse. But hidden behind that slightly mystifying name is a potent mix of puzzling fun that never gets old –…

Immortals Fenyx Rising Review (Switch)

Immortals Fenyx Rising (aka Gods and Monsters) was originally announced at E3 2019 and instantly drew comparisons to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, rightfully so. The game is now officially launching on Dec 3, 2020, for basically every current console and PC. I had the opportunity to review the Switch version of the game, which I was interested in seeing how well another company can pull off a BOTW type game on a Nintendo console. But before we get into that let's talk about what the game is all about.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Review

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch. Some may even say it is THE best game. How do you follow up on that? Well, you just create a prequel to Breath of the Wild that’s totally different from the previous game, while keeping the world and some other cool things. Enter Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Let’s find out if this is a worthy sister-title to Breath of the Wild!…

Just Dance 2021 Review

There are certain things we can rely on in life to have an annual release, Things like the Shamrock shake at McDonald’s, or they claymation Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer special during the holidays. Just Dance has been in that same category since it’s inception over a decade ago. With its infectious song lists bright colors and fancy unique choreography Just Dance has always been a fun time for all. While this year is the first time the game isn’t released…

ScourgeBringer Review (Xbox One)

There’s no sign of the roguelike rush stopping any time soon, and ScourgeBringer is the latest to join the often-punishing genre.  A well made game that nails its gameplay execution, ScourgeBringer is a fun ride that will remind you of a game with tight controls from the NES or SNES era. There’s a story to ScourgeBringer, but it’s ancillary to the experience.  From the time you first load up the game, you’ll be playing through your first run in a…

Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia Review – A Kids Delight

It's been a few days since Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia launched on Nintendo Switch. As we had a lot on our plate with upcoming console launches and tech drops, we are a bit late to the party on the review front. From what I've read this week, I'm actually a bit shocked. Could a game that Nintendo gave so much love to by featuring it in a Nintendo video fall so short? According to reviewers yes, but after at least a dozen hours, my kids have provided an emphatic, no.

The Jackbox Party Pack 7 Review

There’s no better way of rounding out a dinner party than to load up Jackbox. The mini-game compilations are fantastic fun, often come to Gamepass, and, more amazing than anything, are now up to their seventh pack. This latest compilation brings with it five new games, each worth looking at. For what it is, there’s nothing quite like the Jackbox compilations, and I think if you know you’ll get the use out of it, it’s worth every penny. But the…

Pikmin 3 Deluxe Review

It’s 2020 and that means aliens are going to invade about any second now. If those aliens are half as useful as the Pikmin, it’ll be a good day for our planet. The little blighters are happy to be tossed into walls, chucked at enemies, fed whatever yellowish goop happens to be lying around… On second thoughts, maybe this isn’t such a great idea. A better idea was Nintendo porting Pikmin 3 from the Wii U to the Switch. The…

Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm Review

Oceanhorn is a series that's very Zelda inspired. The first game was like a combination of A Link to the Past and the Wind Waker. And now there's a second game and it looks like Wind Waker meets Skyward Sword. The first game was good, but can the second build upon that and be even better? Let's take a look at Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost Realm for the Nintendo Switch!
