I remember when I first saw De Mambox a few months ago. I was honestly really confused and wasn’t quite sure what I was watching. It reminded me of a few smaller games that I’ve seen before with that sleek visual style, and I was intrigued. I got my hands on the game, so now I present my De Mambo review.

I feel like such a fool for being so skeptical of ARMS. Seriously, I almost laughed at the game when I first saw it in January, almost to a point where I was frustrated with Nintendo for making it. People told me, “it’s the next Splatoon,” and I didn’t want to believe them. I mentioned about a month ago how my opinion had changed, and I’m glad I gave this game a shot. So, here’s my ARMS review.
ARMS makes me excited for Nintendo and especially what else they’ll throw on the Switch. The game isn’t as complete as I would have hoped, but man does it feel like a full experience.
The Fire Emblem series has seen a huge boost in popularity as of late, mostly due to Awakening’s sales. Less than a decade ago, fans often wondered how long they would have to wait for a new game. Now, they wonder how they can keep up with new titles coming within a short time period. While Fire Emblem hasn’t reached Pokémon level of success and content, there is no doubt it is becoming one of Nintendo’s most popular franchises.
However, some fans of “traditional” Fire Emblem games feel as though their beloved franchise is moving away from its roots. Instead of focusing on tactical RPG combat, newer editions focus more on pairing couples and making children. To these fans, new Fire Emblem games play more like a dating simulator rather than a war simulator. (Waifu Wars?)
Whether you agree with “traditional” fans or not, there’s no denying the difference between old Fire Emblem and modern Fire Emblem. I often wondered to myself, “Is there a happy medium?” Going into Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, I wasn’t sure; I wanted to know if the present could learn from the past.
It’s no secret that I’ve been excited for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. James and I worked on a series of articles about why you should be excited. I have been excited since the announcement of this wonderful game, and boy, did it deliver.
Fire Emblem: Heroes is a Fire Emblem lite title Nintendo has created for smart-phone devices. Going into the game I didn’t expect anything as amazing as a fully fleshed out Fire Emblem title, nevertheless, I was surprised with how much was actually squeezed into this mobile title. Why is that? Let’s find out.
