Review in Progress: Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars

The road to release for Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars has been anything but smooth. Since I profiled the developer more than a year ago, it's gone to hell and back again trying to get this game onto the 3DS eShop. According to T...

Nintendo Download: A bunch of Atelier games

After a huge Pokemon info dump this morning, it's back to business as usual for the eShop. Those Sword and Shield expansions aren't coming until later this year, but for now you have a ton of Atelier games to sift through as ...

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 ...

Destructoid's award for Best Portable Game of 2019 goes to...

It's a bit fitting, isn't it, that Destructoid's final award for portable gaming should go to a developer well known for its support of video game devices long after they've been replaced. Over the last 12 calendar months, Atlus has given V...

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: 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...
