There’s a Big Sale Happening on the Switch Right Now!

If there’s anything to be learned with all the shenanigans surrounds new releases over the past few years, it’s that you’re almost always better-off waiting for the sale. Because, unless it’s a first-party Nintendo game, all games go on sale sooner or later, and they’ll almost certainly be in a much more playable state. One…

Nintendo 64 Games Are Coming to the Switch…At a Cost

By now, Nintendo Switch Online sports a hefty collection of old-school titles from the NES and SNES, leaving us to ask, “So where are our 3D titles, Nintendo?”  Well, we have finally received the long-awaited announcement that Nintendo 64 games will be made available on the Nintendo Switch.  At an additional cost.  Okay, awesome…wait, what…?

Grim Legends 2: Demo Review

When perusing the demos available on the PS4, I came across a plethora of games by the developer Artifex Mundi, which all seemed to be point-and-click puzzle games with fantasy themes and colorful graphics. Intrigued to try something a bit different, but overwhelmed by my choices, I started with Grim Legends 2: Song of the…

Fixing Donkey Kong 64

Of all the games Rareware put out in the mid- to late 90’s, DK64 might just be the most polarizing.

Dying Light Reanimates Once More for Nintendo Switch

Much like the shambling corpses it’s named for, the zombie survival genre is still shuffling around despite being considered “dead” since at least 2011. New games still get made, and older “classics” keep getting resurrected in the hopes of squeezing just a little bit more juice out of one of gaming’s oldest (and most overused)…

Ori and the Blind Forest: Aggravating, Yet Amazing

Yet another game on my backlog, I had never before heard of Ori and the Blind Forest until someone had requested we play it on our Youtube channel.  Cary ended up taking on the responsibility of recording her playthrough of this amazing game, and as I watched her progress, I knew that this was a…

About that Knights of the Old Republic Remake…

While I do think that game makers have been overdrawing from the remake/remaster well over the last few years, I like to think that they’re mostly harmless. When done right, remasters and remakes provide new opportunities for both old and new fans to enjoy older games again. However, not every remake/remaster is done well, and…
