  • First Impressions of Fire Emblem Warriors from E3 2017
    It’s exactly what you think it is.To be honest, I’m not the best person to tell you about this game. I’ve played a few Fire Emblem games but always bounce off or slog through them in search of deeper engagement, and my time with Hyrule Warriors was much the same.

Also, check out our direct feed video below (that's me playing). Read more...

  • Death Squared Preview
    To date Snipperclips has been the multiplayer puzzle game of choice on the Switch by default. Death Squared is here to take that crown for itself. If Snipperclips is considered the cute and quirky puzzle game in the Nintendo Switch lineup, Death Squared could be be described as the drunk uncle. It has a pretty offbeat sense of humor similar to Portal’s GLaDOS, and is a bit weird, but then will turn on a dime and get downright mean. If you like a challenge, I’d say that this is a game well worth playing. Read more...
