Mortal Kombat 11 on Switch is a bloody good time

Mortal Kombat 11's Switch version was shrouded in mystery for the longest time. Announced alongside the game late last year, WB Games and NetherRealm waited until just a week before launch to publicly show any footage of the port. A PAX Eas...

Anduin is the priest Heroes of the Storm always needed

[Update: You can find the Spotlight embedded below.] The last time Heroes of the Storm added a character (all the way back into January), it didn't really resonate with me. It wasn't the boon the game needed after it was put on notice last ...

Swords and Soldiers 2 is still pretty great on Switch

All the way back in 2015 (which feels like forever ago), Swords and Soldiers 2 dropped on the Wii U. Even further still in 2009 Swords and Soldiers graced various platforms and also killed it. They're both heart-filled strategy romps and ha...

Review in Progress: Apex Legends

After Titanfall 2 was unceremoniously fed to the grinder and released between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in 2016, I was curious as to what we'd see next from Respawn Entertainment. But, with the popularity of battle ro...

Review in Progress: God Eater 3

Given that I'm not even a couple days worth of play into a hunting game others dump hundreds of hours into mastering, I feel it's a little bit early for me to be saying if God Eater 3 is worth picking up. That said, from these limited ...

Downwell is a must-play on Switch even for double dippers

Downwell is a roguelike action game about plummeting down an impossibly long and monster-filled well with style, grace, and gunboots. As Nintendo Switch owners will soon discover, it is exceptional. It's one of those games whose magic can't...
