Yeah, Zelda: Breath of the Wild could work as an SNES game

Demakes fascinate me. It's impossible to literally go back in time and supplant retro games with newer concepts, knowing what we know now. But I'm engrossed in the artistry of it: especially if the theoretical concept works, or even better:...

Nintendo Download: The extreme calm before the 2020 storm

If you thought last week was a chill period for the eShop, you ain't seen nothin' yet. This week Nintendo and pretty much everyone else is biding their time to get through the holiday season after every already spent their pre-holiday cash ...

Nintendo Download: Deponia Doomsday

In what is easily one of the most (understandably) barebones eShop release weeks to date, there's very few actual games being released on Switch, and none on other platforms. The highlight is easily the arrival of two more games in the ...

Nintendo Download: Star Fox 2

We've reached the end of the line. The December rush is over, and now we're getting a ton of shovelware as all of the really big games have come out already in the hopes of becoming Christmas presents. Smartly, a few of the really obscure g...

Nintendo Download: Shovel Knight: King of Cards

This is it, don't get scared now. 2019 is coming to an end. Oh no! At least we have a ton of amazing things lined up for 2020, as well as two new console launches (PS4/Scarlett). It's going to be a crazy year. For now, we have to wrap up th...

Nintendo Download: Trover Saves The Universe

We've officially reached the winter lull. Most of the big games that are going to be released in 2019 are out, with the exception of a few (on Switch, it's basically just Shovel Knight's last pair of expansions). There are a few notable add...

Nintendo Download: The Touryst

Nintendo kind of went all-out last week with Pokemon Sword and Shield, which are already selling incredibly well. As a result a little bit of a lull: a pre-holiday cooldown period, if you will, is in order. You see pretty much every major r...

Nintendo Download: Pokemon Sword and Shield

This week all eyes are on Pokemon Sword & Shield, as actual hands-on gameplay will ultimately decide the fate of this generation: not leaks. Both games are arriving separately of course, but there's also a Double Pack, and the special S...

Nintendo Download: Luigi's Mansion 3

Luigi's Mansion 3 is clearly the big release today, on this spookiest of days. As for the other big marquee eShop titles: Just Dance 2020 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 are out on November 5, ...

Nintendo Download: Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD

Another month, another set of questionable to serviceable ports on Switch. Resident Evil 5 and 6 are rolling onto the platform with potentially lingering demo performance issues, which are hopefully resolved at some point. They are joi...

Nintendo Download: Return of the Obra Dinn

There's been little to no fanfare for Little Town Hero, a new Game Freak RPG that's coming exclusively to Switch today, but hey, it's coming out at least! It's priced at $24.99. Also on Switch this coming week is indie darling Return of the...

A Luigi Fanatic

Zesty takes: Links Awakening HD looks awful and is horrendously optimized, the Sonic franchise is overhated, I feel physical pain when people call Minecraft music parodies nostalgic, Pokemon shouldve scrapped the National Dex a long time ago

 
kevlarmonkey

A very old friend sent me these Cant wait to dig into them!

 
ScionVyse

Spicy take: Any character creator that doesnt allow and encourage creating inhuman monsters is a bad character creator, because character creators shouldnt really be taken too

 
Virtua Kazama

Its really cold outside and Im thinking that theres nothing cozier than playing some more Hollow Knight on stream! Lets continue, shall we?

Pringus Mcdingus did a very cool thing regarding hands of Tweet

 
Shoggoth2588

Spicy Take: The DS Legend of Zelda games are unplayably Duke Nukem Forever is the best game to come out of The Wii U still has better exclusives than the PS4 and Death Stranding would actually be good without enemy

 
taterchimp

Hot Take: Untitled Goose Game is a meh game that is more fun to watch and describe than it is to play, but you should still buy it to support the creativity the devs had to make it

 
GoofierBrute

Spicy take lighting round: Star Fox Zero is the second best Star Fox game, Color Splash is good, Yakuza is better than Shenmue, DKC 2 is the best DKC game, Fates are pretty good games, and the Uncharted games arent the greatest thing

 
Dere

Spicy take for Majoras Mask is Not a top 5 Zelda game for Twilight Princess is however better than Majoras Mask and a top 5 Zelda game
