Game Announcement Timing is Killing Titles

blank This morning, rumors began to swirl around the brand new Fable game being developed by Playground Games. The rumor is that because of an inability to work with the current engine, the development team has had to scale back the quality of the game. Rumors are just that, rumors. But it does highlight one major problem with the video game industry - the announcement of games too early.

 

Two Point Campus Previews Have Dropped

blank There are a handful of games I am looking forward to in 2022, but number one on my list might shock a few people. Seeing as I hold Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle in my top 5 Switch games of all of time, you would expect that, should it launch this year, Spark of Hope will be my number one! Nope, it's actually a simulation game called Two Point Campus, and it's something I cannot wait for!

Does Donkey Kong Make an Appearance This Summer?

blank With E3 once again shelved for 2022, we can assume that Nintendo will still release some type of Nintendo Direct between now and August. With big games coming this summer, the next Direct will be looking at games coming in the future. We likely will get an extended look at Breath of the Wild 2, Spatoon 3, and other titles. But one game I think Nintendo fans NEED to see is something within the Donkey Kong universe.

 

Parkasaurus is Wildly Fun

blank Over the years, classic Tycoon games have evolved into deep, sometimes daunting experiences that don't necessarily capture the joy and simplicity of the early days. While I loved the original Roller Coaster Tycoon, Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, and Zoo Tycoon games on PC, the moment that Zoo Tycoon was released on Xbox, Planet Zoo on PC, and Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 and future titles across multiple platforms, I was disinterested in the franchise. Parkasaurus is bringing me back to the fold.

 

Two New Short Trailers for Mario Strikers: Battle League

blank Nintendo doesn't shy away from quietly dropping new trailers for upcoming games, and although the two posted yesterday combine for less than one minute of air time, they are still a welcome sight for those looking forward to the first Mario Strikers game in a very long time. With the game just a few weeks away, it's time to take a deeper - and yet still brief - dive into more things the game will offer!

 
 

LIVE A LIVE-New Trailers

blank New trailers for LIVE A LIVE, Square Enix’s upcoming HD-2D jrpg for the Nintendo Switch, have been released. You can check them out below, along with some thoughts on each of them. LIVE A LIVE features multiple characters and multiple stories, much like Octopath Traveler. The biggest difference is that each of the stories takes place in a different time period and setting. The first trailer here shows off a story that takes place in the distant feature. The setting…

 

Why Diamond Dynasty is Great, but not for Everyone

blank Whenever a new sports game drops in the Roffel household, I can guarantee you that one mode always gets played more than others. In NHL, it will be Hockey Ultimate Team, and in FIFA (now EA FC) it will always be Football Ultimate Team. So, when PlayStation Canada sent over a copy of MLB The Show 22, I figured Diamond Dynasty would be my go-to mode. And it was, for a bit.

 

Playmobil Review – Water Park with Slides

blank Last year, the fantastic folks at Playmobil were nice enough to send over their early learning Playmobil sets, 1-2-3 Aqua which my 2.5 year old son absolutely loved. Unlike regular Playmobil, no small pieces were included with these sets that we reviewed. Everything was really big and chunky, easy to grab and easy to play with. He had a blast. Now at 3.5 years old, he's begun to invest more of his time in more complex Playmobil sets, and because of his love for all things water, we knew ...

 
 

Switch Throwback – How Good was Little Dragons Cafe?

blank Over the past few weeks, I've been diving into my Nintendo Switch library to play some old games that I haven't touched in a long time. One of those games was the highly anticipated Little Dragons Café, and while I remember being disappointed with the game when it first launched, I'm really enjoying it now.
