8.5 No More Heroes 3

 

No More Heroes 3 is the strangest game I’ve played. Buckle up! Here is our review of No More Heroes 3 for the Nintendo Switch. No More Heroes 3 is strange. It is very, very, very, very, very, very, very strange. What? You want me to explain the plot? Okay… Travis Touchdown, an assassin, must save the world from aliens that dress like 70s B-Movie villain rejects! Thats the simplistic explanation for ...

 

6.0 Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory

 

Kingdom Hearts is a mess of mixed genres, overlapping storylines and convoluted writing, and yet we still love it. Its cheesy optimism and tight gameplay – not to mention the much-loved cameos – makes it a must-play for anybody with a heart (sorry, Nobodies). Melody of Memory takes all of that and basically just dumps it in the bin, replacing the best of the franchise with a self-indulgent ...

 

8.0 Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD...

 

Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was originally on the Nintendo Wii. It hadn't been available on anything else...until now! Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is out now for the Nintendo Switch. How is the game on the Switch? Does the remapped controls work on Nintendo Swithc after so many folks passed on the motion controls of the Wii version? Here is our review!

 

9.0 Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings o...

 

Its finally time for our Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin review! For even more thoughts on the game, please check out our review-in-progress articles. How is Monster Hunter Stories 2 overall? Let's take a look!

 

8.5 Mario Golf: Super Rush

 

In our preview of Mario Golf: Super Rush, we told you about the game's brand new modes and how we've been enjoying them so far. But is Mario Golf: Super Rush another must have game for the Nintendo Switch or should you just go back to playing Mario Kart? Here is our review of Mario Golf: Super Rush for the Nintendo Switch!

 

8.0 Game Builder Garage

 

Do you like Sony’s game builder Dreams? Do you wish Nintendo had an interesting, more complex game builder too? Then you should check out this review of Game Builder Garage for the Nintendo Switch! Game Builder Garage is unlike any other game on the Nintendo Switch eshop right now. Yes, we’ve seen other game makers on the system like Super Mario Maker 2 and RPG Maker MV. However, Game Builder Garage ...

 

9.5 Miitopia

 

Miitopia was, and technically still is, on the Nintendo 3DS. We reviewed it on that system, plus you can find review-in-progress articles here. But what do we think of the Switch version? Is it the game worth picking up again or for the first time on Switch? Here is our review of Miitopia on the Nintendo Switch!

 

7.5 Famicom Detective Club

 

There are some games from the NES era that we never got in the West. Nintendo has started bringing some of them over like Earthbound Beginnings on the Wii U and the very first Fire Emblem on the Switch. And now Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind have been translated and will be on the Nintendo Switch soon. Are these games any good? Here is our ...

 

8.0 New Pokemon Snap

 

Personally, as a gamer, I’ve had a semi love/hate relationship with Pokémon over the years. I was an early adopter to the series having Pokémon Blue when it came out and did really enjoy the game. But we haven’t really had anything quite like that until then. Obviously, since then it has blown up to a worldwide phenomenon with people camped out for cards, buying games left and right, storming ...

 

9.0 Monster Hunter Rise -in-Progress

 

Monster Hunter is a terrible franchise. Monster Hunter is boring. Monster Hunter lacks depth and creativity. Monster Hunter is a button masher. Anytime I've seen a Monster Hunter game hit the market, these are basically the 4 stereotypical responses I go to in order to somehow justify why I don't want the game. And so, until March 26th, 2021, I had never played a single game in the franchise. I haven't even ...

 

9.0 Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Oli...

 

It's been a long while since we got a really good, brand new Story of Seasons / Harvest Moon title, and the month of March 2021 brought us two! While each game was vying for superiority this year - some called it the battle of farming simulation games - only one game really hit home, and that experience was Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. While I wasn't a fan of everything in the game, the overall ...

 

7.0 Apex Legends (Switch)

 

The good thing about Apex Legends’ recent Nintendo Switch release is that it’s Apex Legends. On the Switch. It’s the same game that you can find on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox, with the same content and gameplay. And Apex Legends is a great game — I’ve played since launch day across PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, the Series X, and now the Switch. I love the game. My interest has waxed and waned depending on the season ...

 

8.5 Bravely Default 2

 

We checked out Bravely Default 2 for the Nintendo Switch with our review-in-progress. And now we are ready to pass final judgement on the game! Will this be another classic Square Enix JRPG? Bravely Default 2 is a throwback to older JRPGs. This series is what the Final Fantasy series use to be: turn-based gameplay with four heroes off on a journey to find crystals. This story might seem simplistic but the game ...

 

9 Littlewood (Nintendo Switch)

 

As stated in my first impressions last week: Littlewood is a game that seems to take inspiration from many others but presented in a way I have never seen before. This game technically starts at the end. There was already turmoil in your world. Your character defeated the Dark Wizard. The world of Solemn is finally at peace, but at what cost? You can’t quite remember. You start the game with pretty much a blank ...

 

7.0 Dry Drowning (Nintendo Switch)

 

Dry Drowning is an investigative thriller-oriented visual novel set in the futuristic dystopian universe of Nova Polemos. A shady socio-political situation dragging everything down to the abyss, a serial killer drawing strength from this darkness, a tormented detective, and his assistant craving for redemption. Dry Drowning challenges the player to find the truth, going through ambiguous characters, riddles, ...

 

7.5 My Universe: Pet Clinic Cats &...

 

Welcome and care for sick animals in your clinic Discover the veterinary profession and help cats and dogs that need you. An injury, fever, an animal that refuses to eat: it’s up to you to act! Pay close attention during the medical examination, decide what care your four-legged patients need, and take care of their personal well-being through dozens of activities. Become the head veterinarian Fulfill your ...

 

9.0 Super Mario 3D World + BowserR...

 

Super Mario 3D World was a great game on the Wii U and it still is on the Nintendo Switch. The following review focuses primarily on Bowser’s Fury. What is this new game? Is it worth picking up Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury to check it out? Let’s take a look! Super Mario 3D World is pretty much the same as it was on the Wii U. There are some minor differences, like the addition of ...

 

Oneiros Impressions (XBox Series)

 

In Greek mythology, dreams were personified as Oneiros, something I didn’t know going into this game but now that I’ve completed it makes perfect sense. In Oneiros you play as Liam. Liam wakes up late just like any other day, but something just feels different. Doors to his room are locked, the laptop’s hacked, the phone’s broken, and something just doesn’t feel right. The place ...

 

7.0 Summer in Mara

 

Summer in Mara is a single-player summer adventure. Take care of your own island, farming the land, and crafting new tools to survive. You can also sail away with your boat to new islands, meet unique characters and find hidden treasures. But the ocean wants you to fulfill your destiny and when it calls you, you’ll have to answer. Summer in Mara is a game about small details that will surprise you every ...

 

8.0 Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The ...

 

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 ...

 

7.0 Puyo Puyo Tetris 2

 

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 ...

 

7.5 Immortals Fenyx Rising (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 ...

 

9.0 Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

 

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 ...

 

7.5 Just Dance 2021

 

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 ...

 

8.0 ScourgeBringer (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 ...

 

7.5 Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia &...

 

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 ...

 

8.5 The Jackbox Party Pack 7

 

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 ...

 

7.5 Pikmin 3 Deluxe

 

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 ...

 

8.0 Oceanhorn 2: Knights of the Lost ...

 

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!

 

8.5 Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! (Xbo...

 

Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! takes the fevered cooking game on the road, which opens up a slightly different gameplay style while further refining the original gameplay concept along the way. All three of the games in the series amount to what is a frantic rhythm game as orders come in associated with specific sequences of button presses to complete.  For many of the early orders, this can lead a player to a ...
