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.
I was torn on whether or not to renew my PlayStation Plus subscription because it has been a while since I’d picked up my good ole dualshock 4 controller. Well, May 31st came around and it was my last chance to get Abzu for free so I decided to pull the trigger and renew. Was it worth it? Read below to find out! (Spoilers ahead)
Nintendo is running some tests of their servers before the release any major titles with online service and after Splatoon, their newest fighting game, Arms is up next. I was very on the fence about this game going into the TestPunch. At its essence, it is a 3D fighting game and the gameplay revolves around punching and turning your extendable fist toward your opponent. You can jump, dash, lean, grab, block, and punch with each hand just like a virtual boxing match.
Mario Kart 8 is by far one of the best in the series (in my opinion the best). The unfortunate part of the eighth iteration of the game is that the Wii U has a less than desirable install base. Now that everyone is clamoring to get their hands on a Switch, the deluxe version is selling like hotcakes. With a small library of releases so far, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe brings a well-known party game to a crowd desiring to have something to show off or play on the go.
Hey there! Today I am starting a new category of posts on my review site called Impressions. These posts will be for games who could be considered incomplete, that I probably won’t end up “beating”, have a major change incoming, or a rerelease of an old title. Today’s first example will be the newly released NBA Playgrounds!
Alyssa here. I’m married to the guy who normally writes this blog and, to be honest, I have next to no idea what I’m doing in writing this post and it was only after much discussion and pleading that I sit here to write a guest review for this game. You see, my husband is a great encourager and after we finished playing Snipper Clips together, he was like, “You should write the review!” To which I said, “No” about 10 times, then almost lost a bet to write it, and then finally decided that since I love Christian and since I am the best. wife. ever. I would go ahead and write the dang thing. So, all that to say, please bear with me..and, here we go!
I bought Shovel Knight for the second time when I picked up my Nintendo Switch because it is just the perfect platformer for on the go play. I knew that the next expansion had just come out so once I tucked Breath of the Wild under my belt, I dove head first back into shoveltry. But this time, I’d be playing as Specter Knight in Specter of Torment!
