Listmas 2018: Most Memorable Odyssey Moments

Listmas is back for another season of list-making mayhem!  Santa’s got his list of good and naughty children.  We here at Virtual Bastion have lists for more gaming topics than you can shake a Wiimote at.  In recent months, I got the immense joy of playing Super Mario Odyssey.  Though I had many memorable moments…

Don’t Forget About ‘Gooigi’

The Luigi’s Mansion remake for the Nintendo 3DS has been out for a couple weeks now and it’s actually pretty good.

It’s Official…I Have a Switch!

That’s right, I bought a Switch.  For a time, I had no idea when I was ever going to buy Nintendo’s newest console.  I mean, while Super Mario Odyssey looked amazing, I couldn’t really justify spending $300 when I would only buy one game.  As was also the case with the Wii, I wasn’t truly…
