Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle – It’s Rabbid Hunting Season

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.

Disgaea 5 Complete

Review: Disgaea 5 Complete – A Very Anime-like RPG

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.

Ironcast

Review: Ironcast – Tea, Puzzles, and Steampunk Mechs

The Switch library keeps on growing. While the big AAA titles seem a little lacking, the indie, or Nindie, support is phenomenal. Ironcast is the newest addition to that Nindies library, offering a game genre I’m sure we’ll see more of. Of course, the developers Dreadbit’s take on the puzzle genre is certainly not typical; in fact, it’s one of the most interesting takes on the genre I’ve played.

Dreadbit describes Ironcast as a turned-based strategy game, but I don’t know if I’d call it that exactly. Sure, it involves thinking and strategy, but it acts more like a match-three puzzle with strategic and RPG elements. However, that’s not to say it’s a bad game. Aside from a few omissions, Ironcast offers a thrilling Steampunk experience that Bejeweled lovers will enjoy.
