Countdown to Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Chess Ultra Announced

Review: Chess Ultra – Let’s hear a Chess Ultra!

I’ve played chess since I was little and have continued to play for years. I remember my dad teaching me how to play the game. He gave me a book written by a grandmaster of chess on how to play. It had a lot of great things inside, and I really loved learning and playing.

Now, there’s a way to play chess on your Switch! There are lots of interesting designs and pleasing aesthetics to make the game super chill and enjoyable. There are a few issues with the game, but we’ll talk about that in the Chess Ultra review!

Dragonball Xenoverse 2

Review: Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 – OCs Done Right

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is a celebration of all the years of the Dragon Ball Z anime. From the fight with Raditz to Resurrection F. Overall, I’d say it’s a pretty decent collection of all the best moments in one package. You even get to play them with your own original character (OC) based on the Dragon Ball Universe.

But, how does Xenoverse 2 hold up on a switch? Let’s find out!

Octodad: Dadliest Catch

Review: Octodad: Dadliest Catch – Where are My Haaaands?

I watched this game being played by several people last year, and it looked like a ton of fun. The people playing were having a terrible time with the controls, but that was the fun of the game. You try to be an octopus posing as a human. What a hilarious concept.

So when Octodad: Dadliest Catch was ported to the Nintendo Switch, I jumped at the opportunity to try it out.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – The Dovahkiin Comes to Switch!

So, have you heard of this little game called Skyrim? You know, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The game that took the world by storm back in 2011? Well, it just so happens it was re-released for the Nintendo Switch. Many had said Skyrim would never come to a Nintendo console, but here it is. Now you can fus-ro-da on the go!

But how exactly does Skyrim run on the Nintendo Switch compared to other systems? Let’s find out.

Sonic Forces

Review: Sonic Forces – Sanic, Sanic, and my OC

Why, oh why, Sega!? Why can’t you be consistent with your games? Did you really want to be outdone by the team behind Sonic Mania, the game literally made by fans!? I had high aspirations for Sonic Forces. Following Sonic Mania and the plethora of other amazing titles we got this year, I was looking forward to this game.

Unfortunately, this game has surprised me in the worst of ways. Let’s find out why.

Bigger Relationship - Doom - Doom Runs at 30fps - DOOM Launches

Review: Doom – Nintendoom! (In Progress)

Doom is a roller coaster that takes off as soon as the game begins and doesn’t stop until you do. This is one of the best action games to have come out in the last few years, but you already knew that. The game came out a year ago and won many awards.

What you are probably wondering is how does Doom run on the Nintendo Switch? Is the multiplayer good on Nintendo’s online service? Is playing the game on handheld worth it? Or maybe you didn’t get around to playing the game last year and are curious if now is the time to try it. With so many questions to be answered, let’s get started.

Jackbox Party Pack 4

Review: Jackbox Party Pack 4 – Simply Smashing

Typically, I’m not one for board games. They don’t really have anything visually going on about them that’s absolutely stunning and aren’t as involved or engaging as video games. But when you mix the two, something magical happens. Jackbox Games has created an amazing experience for the gamer and board gamer alike. But how so? Join with me now, and I’ll tell you how.

Super Mario Odyssey

Review: Super Mario Odyssey – The Perfect Game

I was expecting Super Mario Odyssey to be a fantastic game. It was a return to form in the vein of Super Mario 64 and Sunshine, and it’s not really a secret that these are some of my favorite games. Despite that, Odyssey still surprised me beyond all belief. There were several moments where I was checking the box to see that I was still playing a Mario Game. It was that inventive and new.

But, let’s get into the nitty-gritty and pinpoint what makes Super Mario Odyssey so amazing.

Moon Hunters

Review: Moon Hunters – We’re Hunting Moons, Right?

When I heard of an RPG that changes over continuous playthroughs of the main game, I was incredibly interested. It seems like a mechanic nobody has ever done before or at least one that is underutilized.

So needless to say, I jumped on board the Moon Hunters train when it came to the Nintendo Switch. How does it hold up, however? Is the mechanic decent? Let’s find out.

Fire Emblem Warriors

Review: Fire Emblem Warriors – Why Do Y’all Hate Old School Fans?

Should I buy Fire Emblem Warriors? This was a question that plagued me at the release of this game. I wanted to support the series, but none of my favorite characters were there. I felt betrayed, but a part of me wouldn’t let this game go.

Suddenly I found myself at the store with the game. I said, “NO! Why are you moving towards the register!? Why do you keep getting closer!?” “That’s your debit card! Put it away! Stop! No!!!”

….and then I bought it. I feel that I’ve betrayed myself. But, at what cost? Join me on my Fire Emblem Warriors adventure through the eyes of a longtime fan.
