  • Puzzle Puppers (Switch) Review
    Not a 15 out of 10, but these are still good dogs.I am much more of a dog lover than a cat lover, so giving Puzzle Puppers a try sounded like my jam. Featuring cute dogs and bright colors, this puzzle game developed by Cardboard Keep delivers its promise of providing both canines and challenging puzzles. There’s not much more to it beyond that, but Puzzle Puppers does a great job of providing challenging, simple gameplay. Read more...

  • Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf (Switch) Review
    Who knew reading a book on the Switch could be this much fun. I feel like time and time again, I always manage to find some form of media worth consuming, only to find out I’ve come in at the end of its run. Unfortunately, it’s happened to me yet again. Before Joe Dever passed away in November of 2016, he worked on the marvelous new game for the Switch,... Read more...
  • TorqueL -Physics Modified Edition- (Switch) Review
    Certainly unique, but is it enough to stand out?One of the things that I love about the gaming medium is the design of gameplay, and how new ideas can be added to an existing genre. TorqueL -Physics Modified Edition- is an interesting take on the platformer genre, even describing itself as a “2D Box Rolling & Extend Platformer” on the title screen. But while the game is quirky and unique, does it do enough to really stand out from others? Read more...
  • Bayonetta (Switch) Review
    While Bayonetta 2 might get all the attention, don’t sleep on the original.Bayonetta is without a doubt one of the most style savvy and over-the-top game series I’ve ever played, bolstered by an interesting, albeit at times confusing, story and a wonderfully strange cast of characters. Having played Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U, I was a bit worried that going back to the first... Read more...

  • Bayonetta 2 (Switch) Review
    The Witch comes to Switch without a hitch.I remember finishing Bayonetta 2 on Wii U back when it first launched and being floored that somehow, PlatinumGames had bested the first game.

  • Owlboy (Switch) Review
    A beautiful blend of glorious pixel art, a heartwarming story, and engaging gameplay.Owlboy’s elegance is its best trait. The gorgeous pixel adventure cultivates a pleasant vision, with expressive and beautiful artwork mixed with a soaring, tone-setting soundtrack. The near 10-hour journey excels because of that presentation, but what makes it coalesce in such a marvelous manner is the heartwarming story, clever mechanics, and joyful exploration. Read more...

    Online’s a blast in this futuristic disc-throwing sports game. It’s of my sincere belief that gaming would be better with more ridiculous made-up sports.

  • Aegis Defenders (Switch) Review
    Blending tower defense with puzzle platforming makes for a graceful and fun game with a slower pace.While it might not be the first game to ever do so, Aegis Defenders blends action platforming with tower defense, but it does so with a wealth of grace and style. The two halves aren’t quite as strong separated, but combined, it makes for an endearing game with a gentle difficulty curve and a calming, serene style. Read more...

    Three games, one solid experience.I am beyond bummed that after 2008’s Final Fantasy Tactics A2, radio silence has been the trend from Square Enix when it comes to another full-fledged entry in the Tactics series. Mercenaries Saga Chronicles, developed by Rideon, is a decent effort to alleviate the pain. Although every single aspect is incredibly generic, Chronicles gets the job done in providing a solid strategy role-playing experience. Read more...
