Another World is being remade for Switch

Another World originally released more than 25 years ago, but it has been in the public consciousness a fair amount in recent years. A steady stream of anniversary re-releases and remakes have seen the iconic adventure game adapted for...


Indie darling Flinthook is coming to Switch next week

Tribute Games has had a nice little run for the past eight years or so. The original Ninja Senki (which was later remade in DX form years later) was fantastic, as was Wizorb, and Mercenary Kings directly after. Flinthook was another hit jus...


Super Lucky's Tale quietly got some pretty decent DLC today

Super Lucky's Tale, a decent puzzle platformer that was maybe a touch too simple and repetitive, got a nice little add-on today that's perfectly in-line with what this game is. Gilly Island is a new world made up of three levels and o...


Review: Rad Rodgers

First impressions count for a lot in gaming. Sometimes a bad launch can tarnish an otherwise solid game from ever recovering, but there are some rare instances where a title gets a second shot. Rad Rodgers happens to be one such game. I rev...


Rad Rodgers is now available on consoles

This news crept up on me, but Rad Rodgers is now available on Xbox One and PS4. Being released as a free update for previous owners on PC, the game now includes an additional five levels and some tuning to fix issues with game balance and p...


Owlboy is the skyward hero Nintendo fans deserve

At first it was exciting to see so many games come to the Switch eShop every week. Now it's getting ridiculous. Just this month, Celeste, Dandara, Space Dave, Old Man's Journey, Pac-Man CE 2 Plus, and Owlboy have all been competing for my t...


Review: Pinstripe

Some things are worth fighting for. Some things are worth walking through hell for. And whatever you hold dear is all the more precious when you've lost everything else. Ted has lost everything else. His wife is gone. He's a "disgraced mini...


The Switch is still scheduled to be skewered by 1001 Spikes

When people argue about game difficulty, most of the time what they're really arguing about is if said game was properly marketed to the same people who would end up enjoying it. Cuphead looks like a cute, simple 2D platformer, but it's act...


Review: Fe

What little we've known about Fe has seemed cleverly wrapped in enigma, like this forest is hiding mysteries that are just begging to be solved. That's half true. There's something to uncover at nearly every turn in Fe but nothing...


Legend of Kay Anniversary Edition is coming to Switch

Legend of Kay arrived around the time when mascot platformers were dying off. 2005 wasn't quite the death-knell yet but it was close, and even at launch on PS2 it had a relatively muted response. Well it came back in 2015 on just about ever...


Review: Aegis Defenders

The simple addition of an RTS Use Map Settings (UMS) toggle helped kick off entire genres, including tower defenses and MOBAs. There was a time when the former genre was king, a golden era, if you will. But in recent years it faded into the...


Bayonetta 2 gets short trailer for Nintendo Switch release

Nintendo have released a "short trailer" (it's actually called that) to whet appetites for the upcoming Switch port of Platinum Games' S&M-em-up, Bayonetta 2. The re-release of the button-mashing title was first announced at The Game Aw...
