Shantae and the Seven Sirens (Nintendo Switch) Review

If you know me, you know I’m a huge fan of the Shantae series.

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.
