Screw what ya heard, Minecraft for the Nintendo Switch is not the best version yet

[Edit: The original version of this article stated that the world size was only 12% larger that last generation in error, and has since been corrected to 12 times larger.] "The reports that Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition is the bes...   read

Review: Spark the Electric Jester

When Sega don't, indies does. Or something like that. First, we got the furrylicious Freedom Planet, which is sold well enough to warrant a sequel, and now we have Spark the Electric Jester that combines the best pa...   read

Eagle Island has one of the best demos I've ever played

I've been following Eagle Island for a while after seeing some awesome looking GIFs of it on Twitter. It's a procedurally generated Metroidvania and/or roguelike about a boy and his pet owl that he has trained to attack at his will.&nb...   read

Review: LocoRoco Remastered

Remember the PSP? You know, that system that many of us bought just because it was the easiest way to play classic consoles on the go thanks to being hacked near launch to easily allow homebrew? Did you know it actually had a few good exclu...   read

Review: TumbleSeed

"FUCK!" That's the word I say right before I nearly throw my Switch across the room after dying what seems like the millionth time in TumbleSeed.  "I hate this fucking game," I think at the time, but I don't really. I actually like it ...   read

Review: Flinthook

One part ghost, one part pirate, one part bounty hunter, one part hooker. No, I'm not talking about your grandma, but the protagonist of Flinthook, a game that had me 'hooked' from the start. Sorry. I had to.   read

Review: Vroom in the Night Sky

Watch every Adam Sandler movie in a row. See my grandma naked. Lick the callused scaly feet of Louie Anderson after a hard day's work on the set of Family Feud. Attempt to tie my flaccid penis containing an entire cotton swab in a kn...   read

The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is A-OK on the Nintendo Switch

I'm a huge fan of The Jackbox Party Pack titles as they not only offer up a ton of content that both gamers and non-gamers alike can enjoy, but they prevent your friends and family from just ignoring you and everyone else in the room f...   read

Review: Use Your Words

Listen up fam, if you're into making dank memes and have a few equally 'lulz' friends who want to create them sitting around a TV via their cell phones, then this is the game for you. I guess? In a world that practically speaks, eats, and b...   read

Review: Hollow Knight

I got my Nintendo Switch day one and I've put around 10 hours into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the latest game from my favorite series. Not because I don't love it, but because I've been obsessed with Hollow Knight. It is that ...   read

Review: Has-Been Heroes

Roguelikes are supposed to be addicting pick-up-and-play experiences that have players doing 'just one more run' before realizing they've been playing for hours on end. After over 10 hours, I can't bear to play anymore. Every time I'm about...   read

Review: Macbat 64

I've never pitched a game to someone with a prototype, but I'd imagine Macbat 64 isn't far off from what publishers would have seen when looking at prototypes for Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong 64. That is to say, bite-sized levels...   read

Review: Poi

What if I told you there is a game you can play right now that combines some of the best mechanics of 3D Mario games with a bunch of cute original characters, locations, and enemies? And what if I told you that very game also failed to be c...   read

Review: 1-2-Switch

"Fucking stupid" is my aesthetic -- just ask anyone on Twitter that disagrees with my opinions -- and 1-2-Switch is definitely stupid, though not in the good sense. It's stupidly priced with a stupidly low amount of content. If on...   read

Review: River City Ransom: Underground

Review: AUKEY KM-G3 RGB Mechanical Keyboard

I love mechanical keyboards. I used to think people that raved and ranted about them and spent hundreds of dollars on a basic-looking, loud-as-hell keyboard were stupid idiots -- until I tried one. Now I can never go back. That said, I see ...   read

Review: Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS

Way back in the day, console ports of arcade games were expected to typically pale in comparison to their quarter-sucking counterparts, and we were okay with that. Flash forward twenty or so years and parity is essentially expected between ...   read
