  • Episode 83 - A Perfectly Harmless Ghost
    We're past the PAX tidal wave, but that doesn't mean we don't have a ton of games to talk about! Brakes Are For Losers, Lode Runner Legacy, Darkest Dungeon, Shovel Knight, and Ninja Striker just to name a few!Subscribe to RSS Feed Direct Download Follow @TalkNintendoPod PAX East has come and gone and we’ve finally finished yapping about all the games we saw. So naturally it’s time to get back to the normal swing of things and... talk about more games. Yessiree Jim, we’re back on that... Read more...
  • Ninja Striker! (Switch) Review
    Seriously fun combo action.When looking for a classic action platformer, finding a number of offerings that fit the bill usually isn’t much of a problem, but finding one that feels right while adding an addicting hook is another story. Luckily for us, the fine folks over at Flyhigh Works were able to capture just that with... Read more...
  • Skies of Fury DX Review
    Soaring from mobile to SwitchIf you are unaware of Skies of Fury DX, it started out as a mobile game. What seemed like a serviceable cartoony flight simulator on iOS and Android is soaring high in its transition to the Nintendo Switch. Skies of Fury is set in the year 1917 during a time also known as Bloody April. You... Read more...
  • Garage (Switch) PAX East 2018 Preview
    In the garage, I feel safe. No one cares about my ways. There are roguelikes, there are soulslikes and, in my opinion, a few smashlikes exist now too. But I also feel like we’ve reached the point where we can now confidently use the term, “hotlikes.” That is, games inspired by and designed in the spirit of Hotline Miami. We got a pretty solid one... Read more...

  • 12 orbits (Switch) Review
    A multiplayer game that really tries, but never reaches it's true potential.Multiplayer games come in various flavors and sizes. When 12 orbits rolled onto my doorstep, it seemed interesting. The ability to play with 12 players with the usage of just a button each is incredible. With simple taps, everyone would take control their character without losing focus on what lies... Read more...

  • Manticore: Galaxy on Fire (Switch) Review
    The Switch checks off another genre on the list.Let’s start off on the right foot. I absolutely despise the current mobile phone game climate. It is largely a market based less on rewarding game design and more on encouraging the player to gamble their money away one micro-transaction at a time. It has less to do with the art form of video games,... Read more...

    Everybody's saying Labo this and Labo that, but nobody's saying Reloaded this or Manticore that.Today's release schedule is a bit of an oddity, as there's... not a whole lot. Whether this is due to Labo or not is up for debate, but there's already *23* Switch games confirmed for next week. Still, we'll take the breather while it's there. The non-cardboard big ones are Wild Guns Reloaded from... Read more...
  • BAFL - Brakes Are For Losers (Switch) Review
    Buckle up! It’s going to be a bumpy ride.I’m not what you would call the best driver. Sure, I can get from one place to another, but not without worrying at least a bit about the lives of those around me. Maybe driving would be easier if we just take away the car’s brakes. It would be one less thing to think about, right? Brakes Are For Losers does that and I was wrong- it is definitely easier to drive with brakes. Read more...

  • Eat Beat: Dead Spike-san (Switch) Review
    Eat to the beat to become buff!Eat Beat: Dead Spike-san is a single-player rhythm game that is not only super fun but cute as heck. The game was originally released internationally for both iOS and Android in February 2015 and has now graced us with its presence on the Switch.

  • Word Search by POWGI (Switch) Review
    Dueling dictionary detectivesWord searches have been a popular form of pen and paper puzzle games and educational aids since the 1960s. As a form of entertainment that has been easily portable since its beginning and has already existed in various electronic iterations, there doesn’t seem to be much to gain from bringing word search puzzles to the Nintendo Switch.

  • Wild Guns Reloaded (Switch) Review
    A memorable and fun remaster of a SNES classic that is mostly worth diving into.Wild Guns Reloaded is an oddity. The original incarnation dates back to a 1994 Super Nintendo release that was generally well received and over the years, fell firmly into cult classic status. Thanks to Virtual Console, the game resurfaced on Wii and Wii U, which led to members of the original development team at Natsume to update and upgrade the peculiar blend of shooting gallery and action with out-there space and western theming.

  • Animated Jigsaws: Beautiful Japanese Scenery (Switch) Review
    This game was supposed to be relaxing.Animated Jigsaws: Beautiful Japanese Scenery is at least well named. It features ten animated jigsaw puzzles with ten-second Shutterstock video clips of Japan. While it runs fine, the bare-bones features and an annoying glitch make these puzzles more difficult than they’d be in real life. The... Read more...
  • Rhythm Adventure Figment Imagines May 31 Launch Date
    A PC hit tunes into the Switch.A cerebral rhythm title will serve as the second release from Bedtime Digital. The developers of Wii U title Back to Bed will launch their second title Figment on Switch May 31. The game launched on PC last year and has already won several awards for its music and art style.

    A game about lynx in the food chain.Developed by Might and Delight, Shelter Generations combines the previously released Shelter 2 and Paws (a prequel of sorts) into a single package.

  • Sumer (Switch) Review
    A digital board game that lives up to the real deal.In a lot of ways, I’ve been waiting for a game like Sumer for years. Outside of video games, I enjoy board games, especially those that fall into the worker placement category. When those games are translated to video games, it’s generally done in a way that only mimics the physical experience.... Read more...
  • Raging Justice (Switch) PAX East 2018 Preview
    A nostalgic rather than retro side-scrolling brawler.The side-scrolling brawler was once king of the arcades and early home consoles, but has since seen a decline in popularity. However it was not lost to Nic of Makin Games, who is bringing it back to the Switch with what he calls a, nostalgic over retro approach. Often developers want to bring a truly nostalgic feeling in both look and feel, but instead Raging Justice brings the gameplay of a classic brawler with a modern and stylized look. Read more...
  • #Breakforcist Battle (Switch) Review
    Evil breakfast food must be stopped in this Breakout styled experience.#Breakforcist Battle is easy to glance at and set aside due to its colorful simplicity. The game has a Breakout attitude that is undeniable. We've seen plenty of those over the years, so when the hook seems to be “Breakout but with food,” writing it off isn’t tough. #Breakforcist Battle doesn’t... Read more...
  • Alteric (Switch) Review
    You know what they say about square pegs and round holes.First released in 2016 for PC and developed by goonswarm, Alteric is a puzzle platformer in the vein of Super Meat Boy and Thomas Was Alone. The description on the eShop suggests that Alteric is the nefarious concoction that arises from the mixing of Thomas Was Alone and Dark Souls, but it ultimately... Read more...

Unfortunately,... Read more...

  • Clusterpuck 99 (Switch) Review
    Get some friends together for anything up to 4 v 4 match-ups in this strange, team-based twist on the classic air hockey.Competitive party games are a tricky thing to get right. Somehow you need to create something simple enough that people can quickly understand and acclimate to it, but at the same time you don’t want it to be so simple that it’s dull. Of course, if you’re shooting for the stars, you can try... Read more...
  • Toki Tori (Switch) Review
    Don’t let the cuteness fool you, Toki Tori is a smart puzzler with lots of charm.The original Toki Tori making its way to the Switch isn’t much of a surprise, as Toki Tori 2 has already been released on the system. This is definitely a good thing, as the original is just as good as the sequel. With its charming aesthetic and clever puzzles, Toki Tori is a wonderful reimagining of the original Game Boy Color release, constantly testing my brain in the best ways imaginable. Read more...

  • Pool Panic (Switch) PAX East 2018 Preview
    Too pool for school. When I first saw Pool Panic on the Spring 2018 Nindies Showcase in March, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. Is it an action game? Is it a puzzle game? Why is there a Zelda II-style overworld? After playing the game at PAX East, I am happy to confirm that I now have answers to all of my questions. Namely: kind of, yes, and because Zelda II is cool.

  • Deep Ones (Switch) Review
    A puddle cannot substitute for an oceanDeep Ones is a single-player retro arcade-platformer that, ironically enough, doesn’t have that much depth to it. The main aspect that stands out about it is that its overall design is inspired by the ZX Spectrum. The design neatly complements the idea that the developers had when designing the game, but everything else about it ends up extremely lacking. Read more...

  • Streets of Red - Devil's Dare Deluxe (Switch) Review
    A roguelike beat-’em-up that seems to yearn for the days of arcade brutality.It seems like every other game on Switch falls gently into the roguelike category. I could dive into the many reasons why and circle back to how Secret Base’s debut Switch game Streets of Red is a roguelike beat-’em-up that reminds me of Double Dragon and River City Ransom, but in the case of...

  • The Banner Saga 1 and 2 (Switch) PAX East 2018 Preview
    The well-regarded tactical series comes to Switch, perfect for late-night narrative sessions.When The Banner Saga originally launched in 2014, all I heard was wild praise about this story-driven tactical RPG.

  • Burly Men at Sea (Switch) Review
    These boys need to come up with other ways of getting to shore.There isn’t a word in the pitch for Burly Men at Sea I don’t like: a quirky tale that tells a slightly different story based on your choices, with each branching path taking between 20 and 30 minutes to complete. What’s more, the minimalist graphics are pleasing to the eye, a lot of the creature design is just too darn cute, and the human-voiced sound effects and music fit the tone perfectly. Read more...
