Switch Pro is Looking Much More Real, Is it Good Thing Though?

Rumors of a Switch Pro have been swirling around in some form for at least a year or so now, but they’ve never really proven to hold much water. That is, they didn’t until a few days ago. A listing for a Nintendo Switch Pro popped up on Amazon late last week, seemingly confirming the…

Crystal Chronicles: Have I Been Playing All Wrong?

It feels like the GameCube era of games falls into an odd middle ground where they’re just old enough that getting your hands on them is hard, but they’re also too new to be included on Virtual Console or the Switch’s online service.  So when I saw that the Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles HD remake…

The Metroid Prime 4 Wishlist

You know, it’s kind of tough being a Metroid fan. Unlike Nintendo’s other major franchises, Metroid hardly ever gets any attention anymore. I mean, there hasn’t been a proper Metroid game at all since Metroid: Samus Returns on the 3DS. That was 4 years ago now. There hasn’t been a console Metroid game since Metroid:…

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle First Impressions

In hindsight, I’m not sure if I picked the best or worst time to play Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle (Switch, 2017). When I got it a few weeks ago, I knew that Mass Effect Legendary Edition was in the wings, and I was already headlong into my Mass Effect: Andromeda replay. As well, Neverwinter…

Resonance: Krook’s March

I have Donkey Kong Country 2 on four different consoles, SNES, Wii, Wii U, and now the Switch.  Needless to say, the game is a big deal to me.  As I replayed the game for the umpteenth time on the Switch, I was reminded of just how amazing the game’s soundtrack is.  In fact, this…

So Nintendo, Where’s That Donkey Kong Collection At?

When Nintendo announced Super Mario 3D All-Stars last year, I found myself feeling hopeful that the company would finally start taking their classic library seriously again. Limited time items (with limited selections of games) like the NES and SNES Classics aside, Nintendo has spent the better part of 7 years doing almost nothing with their…

Ghosts and Goblins Resurrection Will Haunt PS4 and Xbox One Too

A new trailer has emerged for Ghosts n’ Goblins Resurrection, and the game’s definitely still looking as tough as it always has. The dead are rising once again and I guess only Arthur and his absolutely worthless suit of armor is the only one up for the task. Hopefully this time around all the weapons…

Dinosaur Planet: The Cancelled Predecessor to Star Fox Adventures

Those familiar with Star Fox Adventures for the GameCube should be well aware that this was not your traditional Star Fox game. In fact, it was much more akin to a Zelda game than a series revolving around animal pilots flying about in the vacuum of space. Well, that’s because Star Fox Adventures was never…

Finally, A Truly New Pokemon Game!

Nintendo had more than a few interesting announcements during their recent Pokemon Direct, but perhaps the most interesting was the reveal of Pokemon Legends: Arceus. At long last, fans are getting the open-world pokemon game they’ve been dreaming of since the very beginning!

Finding the Drive to Play

I’ve been blogging about games for about 10 years now (holy cow!) and I can definitely see myself going for another 10. It’s kind of amazing how much has changed in gaming over those 10 years, and honestly I can hardly believe it sometimes. I’m also sometimes surprised that I’m still into gaming enough to…
