Countdown to Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mario and Rabbids, two worlds that have no business interacting with each other in the same game; at least, that’s how most people described Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle leading up to its release. I was one of those people, cringing every time Rabbid Peach stopped everything to take a selfie. I firmly believed the mild, conservative Mario universe couldn’t mix with the obnoxious Rabbid culture. Surprisingly, Ubisoft proved me wrong.
Actually, I had no intention in picking Kingdom Battle up — Rabbids have never been my favorite. However, after watching previews and trailers, I realized this wasn’t another Mario CD-i but a potential high-quality game. Of course, this sort rhetoric is not terribly original; in fact, go to any blog or YouTube channel, and they’ll tell you how their distaste for the crossover turned into love and admiration. Oddly enough, this reaction seems to be pretty universal.
But, I can’t help it; this is an amazing game.
A lot of games were announced in the Nindies Showcase this week, so we had to talk about some of the big titles! Join Skylar, Jordan, and James as they talk about those, as well as other games they’ve been playing recently. Of course, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle came out recently, so we have to talk about this game too! This is a long episode!
Pre-orders for the SNES Classic really made us mad. So, we figured we’d talk about how they went down and more. Join us for a discussion on how maddening it is that Nintendo can’t supply a good amount of product to their loyal customers, let alone their targeted audience. So here’s what we had to say about the Classic SNES pre-order chaos!
Tuesday was a complete nightmare. Struggling to grab a SNES Classic pre-order left many fans dazed and heartbroken. Some emerged victorious from the online no man’s land and are now waiting anxiously for launch day. Others felt drenched with an overwhelming feeling that they’ll never get to hold their own tiny, little emulator. No matter which side of the fence you fall on, there’s no denying that yesterday turned into one of the most emotionally draining moments of a Nintendo fan’s life.
I really like Fire Emblem gameplay. It’s a ton of fun and very demanding of your attention. So when I heard there was another game that was full-on turn-based RPG goodness on the Nintendo Switch, I jumped at the chance to play it. So is Disgaea 5 Complete fun? Or is it just another JRPG to throw on the already mountain-sized pile of mediocre RPGs? Let’s find out in this Disgaea 5 Complete review.
I’m sick and tired of this crap. This is the second time this has happened to me. I initially shake off this type of deep desire that I have to get a small Nintendo console. Then, when it becomes a game to get one, I go overboard and invest way too much energy on this. The SNES Classic pre-order chaos that occurred this morning is ridiculous. Nintendo, we can’t keep doing this.
forma.8 is a Metroidvania style exploration game involving a floating drone collecting energy for a space craft in hopes that you may save your civilization. Will this game be able to satiate my hunger for explorative adventures? Or will it make me cry like the announcement of Hey Pikmin? Let’s find out in this forma.8 review.
