‘Crayola Scoot’ Review

October 16, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

At first blush, seeing the name Crayola Scoot, for some people, might conjure up images of a kid’s coloring game, or otherwise bring to mind many cringe-worthy licensed video games from a mostly bygone era. Don’t be fooled, however—Crayola Scoot is a worthy video game in its own right and […] Read More

‘Disgaea 1 Complete’ Review

October 8, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

Turn-based tactical RPGs were a dime a dozen ten and twenty years ago, and with series like Advance Wars, Fire Emblem, and Final Fantasy Tactics, there was never a shortage of tactical goodness to go around, particularly if you were a Nintendo fan. Among that heyday during the late ‘90s […] Read More

‘Wolfenstein II’ for Switch Review

September 4, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

Much like last year’s port of DOOM, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on Switch sees an ambitious first-person shooter dialed down and ported to Nintendo’s hybrid console. Many of the things that were true of DOOM’s Switch version, such as muddy textures and a lower frame rate, are also true […] Read More

‘The Messenger’ Review

August 28, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

If I’ve learned anything over the course of the Switch’s life cycle, it’s that retro-style indie darlings are aplenty on the platform. The next challenger in that arena is Devolver Digital’s and Sabotage’s The Messenger. A clear cut from the same cloth as Ninja Gaiden, perhaps the most interesting aspect […] Read More

‘Titan Quest’ for Switch Review

August 7, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

In all my years of playing and experiencing video games, dungeon crawlers and hack-n-slashes have become some of my favorite genres ever since the days of Diablo 2 and Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance. With the exception of Nine Parchments, this style of game has been severely lacking on Switch in the near year and […] Read More

‘Another World’ Review

July 10, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

Playing through the cult classic Another World is, today, mostly an exercise in archaism; many of the gameplay mechanics that were relevant and groundbreaking back in 1991 feel out of place in 2018. Though it seemingly has inspired more modern titles, such as Limbo, and many of its puzzles still […] Read More

‘Pocket Rumble’ Review

July 6, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

With recent releases like Ultra Street Fighter II and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection on Switch, it’s unequivocally clear that 2D fighters are being celebrated and are enjoying somewhat of a resurgence. The next title to enter the fray is Cardboard Robot Games’ Pocket Rumble. A callback to the classic […] Read More

‘Paranautical Activity’ Review

June 26, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

It’s still rather odd to see the first-person-shooter genre alive and well on Switch, but as last year’s DOOM and this month’s upcoming Wolfenstein II have confirmed, hardcore first-person shooters have a home on Nintendo’s hybrid console. Code Avarice’s Paranautical Activity aims to shake up the genre by combining the […] Read More

‘Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn’ Review

June 20, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

Loading up Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I’d never played the meme-worthy original, so I didn’t know where to set my expectation bar. After playing through the game on Nintendo Switch, however, I’ve concluded that bar should be set extraordinarily low. Not only […] Read More

‘Manticore – Galaxy on Fire’ Review

April 22, 2018 Nick Chevalier 0

Although I’m usually not a fan of space fighting or sci-fi games, Manticore – Galaxy on Fire is as unique an experience as any I’ve had on Nintendo Switch. While the game is visually breathtaking and its moment-to-moment gameplay is fun, its disjointed narrative and one-note gameplay loop keeps Manticore […] Read More
