But, how does it hold up to other games on the market right now? Is it worth the money to experience the game? Let’s find out.

1-2 Switch

Review: 1-2 Switch – Why Didn’t this Come with the Switch?

Oh, the joys of Black Friday! The marvelous time of year where people kill each other to get a few dollars off a desired guilty pleasures. What was my guilty pleasure you ask? Well, I thought I’d pick up 1-2 Switch for cheap since I had a $20 gift card at Bestbuy and they were selling it half off.

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

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!

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.

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.
