Rime has some issues on the Nintendo Switch

This game was originally released for other platforms back in May of this year. After finally getting my hands on the Nintendo Switch version, almost six months later, I think it’s fairly safe to say that the delay was a good call. Ev...

Review: Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together! DLC

I couldn't recommend Snipperclips enough when it launched alongside the Nintendo Switch and, to this day, it's still one of my favorite games for the system. It's creative, lighthearted, approachable, and gives you just enough room to be a ...

Review: Campfire Cooking

Camping sucks. It does, it really does. I’m out there, sleeping on the ground, surrounded by trees, insects, and bears all plotting to kill me in my sleeping bag. I have to hang food from a tree so I don’t starve the next day, c...

Inversus Deluxe is a monochrome masterpiece

When Inversus came out a little over a year ago, it would've been easy to take a look and think it's a little too simple to be entertaining. At first glance, it looks like a throwback to the very earliest video games, nothing but black...

Get ready to pop, there's a HuniePop sequel in the works

HuniePop works for a number of reasons, but also doesn't work for its intended one. It's fun as a Bejeweled-light that rewards progress, and it's also kind of a party game my roommate and I had a lot of fun laughing at. If you played the f...

Picross S will not have touchscreen controls

You know, if there's one thing I've liked about Nintendo in the last 10 years, it's the touchscreens on the Wii U, 3DS, and Switch. They're pretty responsive, and I've loved using them for the Wind Waker remaster (seriously, having a dedica...

Ship It takes Tetris to another dimension

If there's a pantheon of gaming, surely Tetris is the god of puzzle games. The satisfying feeling when you manage to clear a row needs no translation, and the Russian export has been played on every continent of the earth. The simple c...

Pikuniku might be your next friendship-ruining co-op game

Pikuniku was such a fitting game to play first at PAX West. It encapsulates the show perfectly. It was situated all the way in the back of the Indie Megabooth, an area of the show floor that has gotten increasingly (and deservedly) more cro...
