“1-2-Switch” Review

“1-2-Switch” Review

Showcasing different games that take advantage of the different features of the Nintendo Switch is always a great way to generate interest, and Nintendo does exactly this with 1-2-Switch. However, does this game have enough substance to make it a part of your Switch library?

“Blaster Master Zero” Review

“Blaster Master Zero” Review

Nintendo turned quite a few heads with last week’s Nindies Showcase when they announced Blaster Master Zero would not only come exclusively to both the Nintendo Switch and 3DS, but also be out less than a week after the system hits retailers. Well, it’s here and it’s great.

[GDC] “Mutant Football League” Hands-On

You wouldn’t believe the look on my face as I was casually walking around checking out different things at GDC and came across Mutant Football League.  I had to get my hands on it, and now that I have, I’m more intrigued than ever.

I may be playing this game on the PlayStation 4, but it certainly feels like I could be playing it on my old CRT TV in my bedroom back in 1989. Double Dragon IV is a throwback game, and there is nothing wrong with that.

“Yakuza 0” Review

When Sega quietly put the Shenmue franchise in mothballs about 15 years ago, they even more quietly transplanted its core concept to “Project J,” which would later be given the name Ryu ga Gotoku (lit: Like a Dragon) upon its 2005 release, then go on to simply be called Yakuza in the west, befitting its core theme. Ryu ga Gotoku was similarly ambitious to its spiritual parent, but with a budget consciousness that would see the series survive five installments […]

“Garou: Mark of the Wolves” Review (PS4, Vita)

SNK’s recent revitalization has been a very successful one, not just due to the brilliance of their comeback game, The King of Fighters XIV, but in their ability to open their back catalogue to new and old fans alike on modern platforms.
