Review: Alwa's Awakening (Switch)

I think we're over the whole tired "ugh not another retro game" rhetoric that kicked off during the Xbox Live Arcade era. Once people realized over the course of the past decade they were here to stay, and that many of them were quite good,...

Bushiden looks like a slick ninja action game

I know many of you need a breather from all of the promising retro-style metroidvania games that come through Kickstarter. Even if you cut out the titles that don't bring in enough funding, there's a lot left. We're still seeing games we fi...

Review: Guacamelee 2

When Guacamelee first dropped in 2013 we weren't exactly hurting for metroidvanias, but we weren't in the completely resplendent period we are now either. Here's the thing about Guacamelee 2 -- it's one of those lateral sequels, the ki...

Yep, you guessed it: A Hat in Time is coming to Switch

Nearly a year after A Hat in Time originally launched, it's missing from just one major platform. It's available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but it's not yet available on the one console where a lot of people most want to play an indie m...
