9.0 Tinykin

 

So, Nintendo may have finally announced and given me a timeframe for Pikmin 4 after many, MANY long years. But in the meantime, something to help quench that thirst came along my way called Tinykin. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a fan of the quirky games and some of my favorites of all time include Pikmin and Chibi-Robo (from the GameCube Era). Tinykin is heavily inspired by both of these games, and I ...

 

8.0 Splatoon 3

 

Splatoon 3 is easily one of Nintendo's most anticipated games of this year, and definitely the biggest this fall / holiday season. The primarily online paint shooter has become wildly popular through the first two releases, and Nintendo is looking to cash in on that success again here. Many would argue the jump from Splatoon to Splatoon 2 was pretty minor, so how do things shape up as we move towards the launch ...

 

7.5 Aquadine

 

So, first off let me say, coming into this review I knew absolutely nothing about Aquadine. I never heard from it, wasn’t on my radar or anything. Let’s check out the official description: After his mother was hospitalized for an unknown disease, Robin Liyun works as a part-time gondolier to make ends meet, but under an alias named Ciel. As he finishes giving tours one night, a mysterious voice lures ...

 

7.0 MADiSON

 

What would you do if you woke up locked in a dark room, with your hands covered in blood? Play as Luca, and endure the brute torture of MADiSON, a demon that has forced him to continue a gory ritual started decades ago, making him commit abominable acts. Will you be able to finish this sinister ceremony? MADiSON is a psychological horror game in similar vein to something like Outlast or what we got a glimpse of ...

 

9.0 Xenoblade Chronicles 3

 

Recently, we talked about Xenoblade Chronicles 3 gameplay, graphics, and story in our review-in-progress articles. Now its time for our full review of the game. Is Xenoblade Chronicles 3 worth checking out? Story And Gameplay The world of Aionios is torn apart by a war between two factions. Each faction is a slave to a clock that must be feed by deaths and each of the people only have a limited time on the ...

 

9.0 Live A Live

 

Square Enix’s latest role-playing game, Live A Live, is seven stories set within seven different eras, with seven different characters. The key word is different because that’s what Live A Live is. It’s a very unique experience. Is that experience good though? Is Live A Live worth checking out? Here is our review for Live A Live for the Nintendo Switch!

 

10 Cuphead Nintendo Switch

 

Cuphead has to be one of the most successful indie games to grace our presence in the past decade. It combines a classic platformer feel with a wacky and unique cartoon aesthetic, topped with very challenging and rewarding gameplay. If you have not yet found the time to experience Cuphead in all of its glory do not fret! Cuphead and it's DLC, 'The Delicious Last Course', are available on the most mobile and ...

 

8.0 My Universe – Green Adventu...

 

The latest entry in the My Universe games – best known I think for being well-crafted family friendly games that are easy enough to play for nongamers and young kids – have moved on to what I think is their greatest one to date with Green Adventure – Farmers Friends. Despite the complicated naming convention, the idea is pretty simple. The old tried and true story of you getting a run-down farm ...

 

7.5 Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition

 

Even the Blade Runner version of 2019 looks like a dream compared to 2022. No pandemic, no crazy politics – just murder robots and really bad pollution. Oh, and new coke. So visiting it in video game format for the first time in 20 years felt like it was going to be a real treat. And in many ways it was. This enhanced edition of the original PC point and click game was a labour of love for the developers…

 

9.5 Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes...

 

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is the latest game in the Fire Emblem and “Nintendo” Warriors series. The games have, so far, combined Nintendo and the Warriors gameplay successfully. So how is Three Hopes? Is it a good game? Will Fire Emblem fans like it? Here is our review of Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes for the Nintendo Switch! Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is set in the same world as Fire Emblem: ...

 

9.5 TMNT Shredder’s Revenge

 

Growing up I was a massive Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan, and yes I mean the old show. I’m part of that generation, where we would get personal pan pizzas from Pizza Hut and even bought the musical album they put out as well as the tour video…I had it all, tons of figures, bed sheets, and video games. The Ninja Turtle video games have always held a special place in my heart, especially the arcade ...

 

6.5 Mario Strikers Battle League

 

Mario Strikers Battle League brings soccer with Mario and friends to the Nintendo Switch. We did a preview of the game and now here is our review of Mario Strikers. Is this another Nintendo sports hit?

 

7.0 Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Sag...

 

The Lego games have been feeling a tad tired as of late. More than once I’ve jumped into a game wishing they would rebuild the franchise from scratch. You know – brick by brick. Enter Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. It certainly looks different enough on the surface, but is it as transformational as long-time fans might have hoped? The simple answer is no. It’s decent fun – especially ...

 

7.5 Nintendo Switch Sports

 

Nintendo Switch Sports hopes to capture the same audience that was once hooked on Wii Sports. Does it succeed? Here's our review!

 

9.0 Kirby and the Forgotten Land

 

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is a lot of fun. Check out our first thoughts to see a bit of why. Is it a must have game on the Nintendo Switch, though? How is it overall? Here is our review of Kirby and the Forgotten Land!

 

9.0 Triangle Strategy

 

Triangle Strategy is Square Enix's newest addition to its Nintendo Switch rpg library. Here is our review of this epic strategy rpg!

 

9.0 RPGolf Legends

 

Do you like Golf? Do you wish there was a game that has a golf story with some Fantasy world RPG elements in it? If you answer yes to this then RPGolf Legends is your answer.

 

8.5 Pokémon Legends: Arceus

 

In our review-in-progress of Pokémon Legends: Arceus, we talked about what made the game different than previous games in the franchise. And now in our review we look at the game as a whole and pass final judgement on it. Is Pokémon Legends: Arceus the best game in the franchise so far? Pokémon: Legends Arceus is set in a different period than previous games in the franchise. It’s in the distant past and ...

 

5.5 Aery – Dreamscape

 

Fly through people’s deepest desires as a bird. And, no, Aery – Dreamscape isn’t an adult game. Because it turns out everybody’s deepest desires are things like “be a pirate”, “visit the moon” or “get out in nature”. Not a single level begins with the phrase “hey, you know that girl from Friends?” Maybe that would have been a better game – its not for me to judge – but it would have been a ...

 

7.0 Big Brain Academy: Brain Vs. Brai...

 

Are you ready to train your brain? Nintendo has brought a brand-new brain training game to the Switch: Big Brain Academy: Brain Vs. Brain! Is it any good? Here's our review! School might be out soon, but Nintendo is keeping the learning going throughout the holidays!

 

7.0 Beyond a Steel Sky

 

27 years later we get a sequel to Beneath a Steel Sky…The original came out in the hay day of point and click adventure games like Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle, and Broken Sword. As an “old” man, these types of games have always had a soft spot in my heart. I do recall playing the original but it’s been a LONG time since I’ve thought about this game. Luckily you aren’t missing much in picking up the ...

 

9.0 New to the Series: Pokémon Brill...

 

Was Pokémon Brilliant Diamond a good place to start? How difficult was the game? Will it hook you on the series? Here is our review of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond!

 

7.5 Unpacking

 

In a gaming landscape where bigger is better, Unpacking is something else entirely. There are no cutscenes, no sob story, no need to pretend your charming protagonist isn’t a multiple murderer. There’s just a lot of boxes. A LOT of boxes. And it’s your job to empty all those boxes. Doing so is simple, and there’s hardly any rules to where you can put something (at least up to a point). ...

 

8.5 Mario Party Superstars

 

Mario Party Superstars is now out for the Nintendo Switch. Is it a fun game? How are the graphics? Is the online multiplayer worth checking out? Here is our review of Mario Party Superstars for the Nintendo Switch!

 

8.0 Guardians of the Galaxy

 

You are Star-Lord, so nothing’s off-limits with your bold combat style, from Element Blasters and jet boot-powered dropkicks to tag-team beat-downs. With the Guardians fighting at your side, call the shots and overwhelm your opponents with signature attacks. Meanwhile, the consequences of your decisions will range from light-hearted to downright unexpected as your journey unfolds. Your newly-formed band of ...

 

9.5 Metroid Dread

 

Metroid Dread is the first, brand new 2D Metroid we've seen since the Gameboy Advance. Is Dread any good? What will long time fans think? What will new fans think? Here is our review of Metroid Dread for the Nintendo Switch!

 

7.0 RiMS Racing

 

I’ve never played a racing game like RiMS Racing, and its core unique mechanic is both the thing that makes the game stand out, and is also the thing that sometimes make the game tedious to progress through. RiMS Racing is the newest motorcycle racing sim from French publisher Nacon and first-time developer RaceWard, from Italy. The core concept of the game is that it’s part racing sim, part mechanic sim. ...

 

7.0 Embr

 

What if your Uber Eats driver had to save you from a house fire? Fight fires for fun and profit in this unpredictable and frantic multiplayer game. Team up with friends, take on daily challenges, and climb to the top of the corporate firefighting ladder. More than one way to become a hero! Embr has you take on the role of a firefighter, but certainly not in the traditional sense. You see in the world of Embr we ...

 

9.5 Tails of Iron

 

Tails of Iron isn't Animal Crossing. It isn't a cute, cozy experience about talking rats. Instead, it's a dark, grim fairy tale with "talking" rats. While the premise of building a game around rats might just conjure up thoughts of the plague, we can assure you it's much more than that. These aren't gross vile rats, but loveable, dedicated, and strong creatures. But, is it a good game? Here is our review of ...
