New Super Lucky’s Tale: A Charming Platformer with an Old-School Feel

I’m always on the lookout for some quality platformers that remind me of the good, old days.  Whether you’d prefer side-scrollers or something of the more open variety, you’re in luck either way with New Super Lucky’s Tale.  This adorable platformer stars a young fox named Lucky who must collect pages for the Book of…

Age of Calamity: Demo Review

Having invested many hours into the original Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U, I thought it would be interesting to try the demo for the next entry in The Legend of Zelda spin-off of Dynasty Warriors, Age of Calamity on the Switch.  Unlike the original, which had a story that stood apart from the rest…

Summer in Mara: Demo Review

In recent years, I’ve been finding myself increasingly interested in playing relaxing games, so when I downloaded the demo for Summer in Mara, I was quite curious to see if this was the next casual game to add to my library.  This game seems like it could be a bit like Harvest Moon meets Animal…

Transistor: Freezing Time in the Virtual City of Cloudbank

Having finally played the critically acclaimed Bastion, I decided it was finally time to check out another one of Supergiant’s games, Transistor.  The game takes place in a futuristic cyber city known as Cloudbank and follows the story of Red, a famous singer whose voice has been stolen.  She quickly teams up with the Transistor,…

Miitopia is Way Better Than It Has Any Right to Be

When I initially saw a partial playthrough of the original 3DS release of Miitopia on YouTube, my expectations were low.  You see, I’ve never been a big fan of Mii’s.  For me, these simple, customizable characters were just not very appealing, and so I expected Miitopia to be a shallow and dull experience.  I was…

Silt is a Delightfully Unsettling Experience

I’m always on the hunt for horror games that aren’t filled with gore and ghouls.  One such game is Silt, where you play as a mysterious scuba diver with the power to possess other creatures.  The game is more eerie than outright scary, making for an experience that is both unsettling and relaxing.

A Pirate’s Life for Me?

TL;DR Eh, probably not. But it was somewhat fun while it lasted! When my household first dipped into Game Pass, Sea of Thieves almost immediately went on the “play later” list, along with several other multiplayer offerings. Like so many other live service games, this one came with its own story of redemption. After a…

Figment 2: Creed Valley: Demo Review

Figment 2: Creed Valley is an upcoming adventure game that takes place in the human mind.  It is scheduled for release on October 15, 2022, but if you’re not inclined to wait, there is a demo on the Switch that grants players access to the game’s first level (though I saw videos online that showed…

Cogen: Sword of Rewind: Demo Review

Cogen: Sword of Rewind is a 2D action game where you have the ability to rewind time by up to 3 seconds using the Ouroboros System, a feature of Kohaku’s talking sword, ExeBreaker.  In a way, the game gave me some old-school Mega Man vibes, with the high difficulty, side-scrolling gameplay, and the buttload of…

Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer: Demo Review

Cadence of Hyrule is a rhythm-adventure game that takes place in the world of The Legend of Zelda! Apparently, some guy named Octavo put the King of Hyrule to sleep with his magic, and it’s up to Link (and several other playable characters) to defeat Octavo and his four champions.  Although I’m typically not a…
