Shantae and the Seven Sirens (Nintendo Switch) Review

If you know me, you know I’m a huge fan of the Shantae series. My playthrough of the 3DS game, Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, was the first time I really got into the Metroidvania genre, as most Metroidvanias I’d previously encountered had dreary palettes or were incredibly difficult for me. The developer, WayForward, reallyContinue reading “Shantae and the Seven Sirens (Nintendo Switch) Review”

Dead Cells (Nintendo Switch) Impressions

Dead Cells is a game I’ve heard incredible things about. I haven’t heard of a single person who doesn’t like it, and it’s always near the tops in lists of games you’ve just got to try. However, it is a rogue-like, and those games.. they scare me. Given that I grew up having to makeContinue reading “Dead Cells (Nintendo Switch) Impressions”

What Remains of Edith Finch (Nintendo Switch) Review

Now I must be candid for this review and admit that… I did not play this game. It’s weird, but I ended up buying it back in August and really, REALLY wanted to play and review it, as I’d heard incredible things about the game. However, when I began, I realised that when I triedContinue reading “What Remains of Edith Finch (Nintendo Switch) Review”

Choices That Matter: And The Sun Went Out (Nintendo Switch) Review

I am so excited to be able to share this game with you all. On a whim, I had a look through the Deals section of the eShop and saw this peculiar icon. After looking at the game’s trailer, I HAD to have it so that I could review it for you guys. Story ChoicesContinue reading “Choices That Matter: And The Sun Went Out (Nintendo Switch) Review”

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (Nintendo Switch) Demo Impressions

If you’re anything like me, then The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild bewitched you the moment you laid eyes on it. As I’ve stated in a previous article, it was the game that gave me enough confidence to enjoy Zelda games when I didn’t think I could, and it was accessible enough toContinue reading “Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (Nintendo Switch) Demo Impressions”

A Short Hike (PC) Review

This review will be a bit of a switch (ha!) up, as I won’t be playing the game on the Nintendo Switch. I received this game in the “Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality” on back in June along with 1,740 other items which included games, game assets, reading materials and dungeon manuals. GivenContinue reading “A Short Hike (PC) Review”

Bury me, my love (Nintendo Switch) Review

The Nintendo Switch eShop is often hard to navigate, as a barrage of new titles being added every day to a storefront without a rating system can make it difficult to discern the proverbial trash from treasure. Every now and again I check the New Releases tab, hoping to find a game that intrigues me.Continue reading “Bury me, my love (Nintendo Switch) Review”

Pokkén Tournament DX (Nintendo Switch) Impressions

Like many Switch owners, I have a subscription to Nintendo Switch Online. For those who don’t know what Nintendo Switch Online (or NSO) is, it’s a service that allows Nintendo Switch owners to have access to online gaming modes, cloud backups for save data (for most games), a library of NES and SNES games, andContinue reading “Pokkén Tournament DX (Nintendo Switch) Impressions”

My Experience with Pokémon GO Fest 2020

Pokémon GO was something of a cultural shift that started in 2016. It was nothing like we’ve ever seen before, the game absolutely exploded across the entire globe. People were getting out and making friends and working together in a way that was uncommon, especially with the dawn of social media that encouraged distanced interactions.Continue reading “My Experience with Pokémon GO Fest 2020”

Afterparty (Nintendo Switch) Review

Upon purchasing my Nintendo Switch, I did what any sane gamer would – aggressively hunt down any and all Top 10 lists for all genres I was interested in. I am a huge fan of story-driven games, and Oxenfree was a game I couldn’t wait to buy. I waited until it was on sale, andContinue reading “Afterparty (Nintendo Switch) Review”
