Kirby’s Dream Land 3 Review

For the last ten years, Kirby’s Dream Land 3 and I have kept passing each other by, with no more than mere glances in the other’s direction before ultimately going our separate ways.  Whether in the form of a physical SNES cartridge or a quick download vie the Wii U Virtual Console, I have had…

Could TV Ads Be Coming to Console Games?

I won’t lie.  I can be a rather negative person.  Nevertheless, I have had a certain bad premonition for years about the future of gaming that might be coming true.  In a troubling turn of events, I have learned that TV ads could possibly begin showing up in our console video games!  Yes, including those…

Singing with Animals in Fe

Despite my stubborn love of physical games over digital, I have started to amass a small collection of digital games on the Switch (“amass” meaning about five games, which accounts for about 50% of my entire Switch collection, so…it’s all relative, I suppose).  This all started when I was perusing the Switch eShop out of…

Resonance: Castle from Yoshi’s Island

Yoshi’s Island is a charming game from the SNES era that I didn’t get the pleasure of playing until not too terribly long ago.  The game’s crayon-like art style and general adorableness pairs well with upbeat music, the likes of which have been stuck in my head thanks to Super Smash Bros long before I…

Resonance: The Abyss

One of my all-time favorite video game series has always been Rayman.  The games are seriously some of the most creative and unique out there, from the lush and intricately detailed locations, bizarre creatures, and amazing soundtrack.  I have actually already discussed the series’ soundtrack twice before (you can find the links at the bottom…

I Finally Played Yoshi’s Island

The most I knew about Yoshi’s Island was the fact that most (if not all) people who play it find baby Mario’s crying extremely aggravating.  In fact, I knew there were several Yoshi games out there, and I didn’t even know which one it was that included such a…unique feature.  (I was mainly confused about…

Diving is Returning to Animal Crossing in July!

Nintendo recently released a video concerning the newest updates coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons!  In just a few days (July 3, to be more exact!), the diving introduced in New Leaf will be returning, along with Pascal the otter, who will be providing us with DIY recipes for mermaid furniture.  And…it appears that Gulliver…

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair Renews My Hope in the Franchise

Back in 2017, I played and reviewed the original Yooka-Laylee game, the spiritual successor to the much-loved Banjo-Kazooie series, made by the very same people who brought us the famous bear and bird duo back in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.  I had some mixed feelings about the game, and owing to the fact…

A New Ratchet & Clank is Coming to the PS5

I tried to firmly tell myself that I wouldn’t be getting the PS5 for at least a year or two after its release.  Consoles are expensive, after all, and I can’t just keep…what’s that?  They’re making a new Ratchet & Clank? Dang it. Okay, so you might already be aware, but I’m a huge Ratchet…

Top Changes I’d Like to See in New Horizons

With Animal Crossing: New Horizons receiving frequent updates to add new events and other features, I started thinking about other improvements I’d like to see in future updates.  This is by no means an exhaustive list, so if you have any changes of your own that you’re hoping Nintendo will implement, please share your thoughts…
