Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Review (Nintendo Switch)

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Review (Nintendo Switch)

I really wasn’t planning on buying this game. In the wake of minions, I couldn’t imagine subjecting myself to another type of annoying side character like the Rabbids. Then I watched as the lead developer almost cried at E3 when they showed it off and I could see the passion behind making this the best crossover title that Nintendo has seen. It also didn’t hurt that this game looked like an approachable XCOM style strategy game, a genre that I hadn’t ventured into yet.

Sonic Mania Review – Nintendo Switch

Sonic Mania Review – Nintendo Switch

I didn’t have a Sega Genesis growing up and really wasn’t aware of the Mario and Sonic feud. I would just go over to a friend’s house and play Sonic and then go back to my house and play Mario. I enjoyed my short amount of time with Sonic back then and when Sonic Adventure Battle 2 came out and I could raise beautiful Chao babies. I really haven’t touched the series since and for good reason (looking at you Sonic Boom). I was pretty thrilled to find that Sonic Mania was receiving good initial impressions so I jumped in on Day 1 to try and feel that sweet nostalgia.

Super Hot Review (PC)

Super Hot Review (PC)

Super Hot came out a while ago but before it was officially released, there was a free online demo which really caught my attention. I knew as soon as I built my PC, this would be one the first things I played. The concept is relatively simple to understand but difficult to master. It is a first person shooter where time only moves when you move. After booting up for the first time, you’ll soon find that the game is wrapped in a stylistic shell and mysterious story.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Impressions (PS4)

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Impressions (PS4)

I never owned a PlayStation 1 so I completely missed out on the Crash Bandicoot games and instead was partial to other platformers like Mario on my N64. When the chance to play them on PS4 came up, I was excited to play something that was so beloved in the past and that I only had a small taste of at friend’s houses. Let me tell you one thing. If the remaster is anything like the original, I’m glad I never played the Crash series.

Cave Story + Review (Nintendo Switch)

Cave Story + Review (Nintendo Switch)

The previously free game Cave Story was released for the first time on a console recently. After much needed convincing from a friend, I decided to pick it up and add another game to my physical switch library. I had actually played it before on PC but quit after it didn’t get its hooks in me. I wanted something to play on the plane for an upcoming trip but I couldn’t wait that long and ended up finishing it the day before.  Continue reading “Cave Story + Review (Nintendo Switch)”

Flinthook Impressions – Xbox One

Flinthook Impressions – Xbox One

This is one of the ones I don’t have enough time or patience to beat. I was cursing too much and decided to put it down and never look back. Flinthook is a combination of Rogue Legacy and banging your head against an unforgiving, space-pirate themed wall. I like rogue-likes. I really do. I put so many hours into Binding of Issac. This one just got under my skin.
