The Joy-Con Drift Strikes Again

It’s official, the infamous Joy-Con drifting issue so prevalent in recent gaming news has taken yet another victim.  My Nintendo Switch is less than a year old, with a large portion of those months not even spent using the console (I don’t have that many games on it yet).  And my left Joy-Con analog stick…

Top 5: Games to Get Now That I Have a Nintendo Switch

Woohooooo! With extra WOO! Just this past weekend, and brand new toy arrived at the house, and I’m still stunned! You can tell it’s true by all the exclamation points! You know how it is when you get an idea into your head, and it’s all you can do to not think about it? Well,…

Yoshi’s Crafted World is Way Too Charming

I knew going in that Yoshi’s Crafted World was going to be the warmest and fuzziest game I was going to play all year. I knew it, but somehow I was still unprepared for the sheer amount of cute and innocence on display here. Seriously, if you thought Yoshi’s Wolly World was adorable, you haven’t…

Switch Lite is Replacing the 3DS, That’s Actually Pretty Significant

For about as long as Nintendo has been making home consoles, they’ve also always had a separate handheld system to accompany it. During the days of the NES, SNES, and N64, Nintendo fans also had the GameBoy (Original, Pocket, Color, etc). The Gamecube had the Gameboy Advance as a partner, the Wii had the DS,…

Day 22: A Game Sequel Which Disappointed You

As I slowly inch my way forward through the 30 days’ worth of video game topics, I arrive upon a pretty easy one, a game sequel which disappointed me.  One game in particular springs to mind, but since it is such an obvious choice, I also wanted to briefly discuss one of the biggest crimes…

For Some Reason, Super Mario Maker 2 is Really Exciting

Despite having been a gamer for about 24 years now (holy cow!), I still can’t say for certain which games will pique my interest and which won’t. I know what genres gravitate towards, features I tend to value, roles I like to play and content I like to avoid. That should be enough to know…

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince is a Pleasant Surprise

With all the noise, fanfare and controversy surrounding triple-A games these days, it’s very easy to forget that there’s a whole world of independent games out there just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed. I’ve been diving into this world more and more over the past year or so, and the amount of quality titles…

Marble It Up: Marble Blast Ultra Finally Has a Successor!

Back in the early days of the Xbox 360, there were only a handful of games available for download on the Xbox Live Marketplace. Some of them weren’t so great, but many like Geometry Wars and UNO have cemented their places as classics of the time. For me though, the one that stands above them…

Nintendo Labo VR and Possible Switch Mini

Two sets of news concerning Nintendo’s current (and possibly future) plans for the Switch have cropped up recently, the release of a Nintendo Labo VR and the possible rumor of a Switch Mini (I must emphasize that the latter has not been confirmed by Nintendo).  And I can’t help but speculate that, if rumors of…

Resonance: Galeem

I know I’ve been talking a heck of a lot about Super Smash Bros Ultimate lately, but darn it, it’s a great game!  I’ve already written posts about the characters, unforgettable moments in World of Light, and I’ve reviewed Ultimate as well as I possibly could, considering it’s such a massive game.  But one thing…
