Nintendo Download: Fez (What year is it?)

Well, the Nintendo Indie World showcase sure showed us! We thought that the Switch wouldn't get too many new indies this week, but Fez is here with a surprise launch. And if you're on the fence: it absolutely still holds up and should ...

Nintendo Download: PAC-MAN 99

Well, I didn't expect Pac-Man 99 to spring up out of nowhere on the eShop, but here we are. As of yesterday, Pac-Man 99 was announced and dropped on the eShop. It's there! And it's a Switch Online pack-in just like Tetris 99 ...

Nintendo Download: Star Wars: Republic Commando

It's that time again. We had a good run with a few brand new games, but now it's back to re-releases. Well, this one isn't quite the same! It's not a port of a six-month-old title that was released on every platform but Switch. No, it's Sta...

Nintendo Download: Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Hunter Rise is the big dog this week: no question. We haven't had too many of those this year so far for the Switch! A lot of the headliners have been things like Apex Legends coming to the Switch, or Plants vs. Zombies Ba...

Nintendo Download: Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time

The time has come! Like other Activision remasters/remakes, Crash 4 has inevitably hit the Switch. Today! Also on Switch, Stubbs the Zombie is being resurrected, and is out on March 16. Then there's Cyanide & Happiness - Freak...

Nintendo Download: Apex Legends

Following a few good first-party weeks for the Nintendo eShop, it's time for third-party studios to shine. Apex Legends is a huge get for Nintendo, and is out on March 9 alongside of double XP from that same date through March 23, and ...

Nintendo Download: Bravely Default II

And we're back! 2021 is starting off on the right foot for Nintendo, as they've hosted a Mario re-release that has gotten a pretty positive reception so far, and this week we're getting the Switch exclusive Bravely Default II. It's a p...

Nintendo Download: Persona 5 Strikers

Atlus must be happy, as Persona 5 Strikers is finally out in the west on multiple platforms, including Switch! So far the Switch edition has been favorably received by critics (we only had access to the PS4 version), so time will tell ...

Nintendo Download: Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

It's a huge day for the Switch, as we're getting Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, a bonafide first-party release. We haven't had much of those in the past year or so! And even when we do get them, a few are re-releases: like...

Nintendo Download: Skyforge

We're days away from a new Mario game. Well, a re-release of an old Mario game. But it has a new title! Before Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury gets here, there is other stuff to peruse on the Switch eShop. Like...Blue Fire! Or...

Nintendo Download: Tohu

We're gearing up for a huge Nintendo release (or should I say, another re-release that's probably going to be a huge hit) soon enough with Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, but for now, we feast on indies. There's a lot of them today!&n...

Nintendo Download: Cyber Shadow

The day has come for Yacht Club Games to further test their mettle with publishing, as Cyber Shadow is right on the horizon. It's due out on January 26 on Switch, and will focus on retro-centric combat and platforming through the lens of a ...

Nintendo Download: Werewolf: The Apocalypse

First things first: this is not a revival of Bloody Roar. Nor is it a werewolf action game of any kind! Instead, it's based on the tabletop game by White Wolf Publishing, which was originally released in the '90s and is still alive and kick...

55 'hidden gems' released on the Switch eShop in 2020

It feels like only yesterday I was booting up the Wii Shop Channel and seeing five, maybe even six games released that week. It wasn't though. That was all the way back in 2009, which is essentially a lifetime ago by game industry standards...

Nintendo Download: Welcome to the New Year

It's going to be a weird year with 2020 in our rear view mirror, I'll tell you that much. But for now: Switch games! There isn't a whole lot here today, as Nintendo isn't featuring anything in particular outside of the Crash Team Racing Nit...

Nintendo Download: Bit.Trip

I feel like saying that a "low key week" for a late-in-the-year Nintendo Download issue is commonplace: but this time, it's extremely low key. It's Christmas Eve! Happy holidays! A lot of folks are busy thinking about presents tomorrow or l...

Anybody else find it funny that people are quick to dismiss ufo sightings as nonsense when we have the ability to send probes to and land on other planets ourselves?

RE5 was one of the most disappointing gaming experiences I Years later, I can appreciate it for what it is - A shinier, if forever unoriginal, serving of RE4s unique design I prefer 4 and (gasp!) 6 for RE shooters, but its

Internet’s out for the house atm, so I scavenged and found a King of Queens DVD Man, Jerry Stiller (RIP) has impeccable comedic timing and Kevin James is more talented than the roles he’s gotten
