Shovel Knight is next to get Switch video recording powers

Switch video recording is in this weird transitive state right now. Some games have it, some don't, and it's mostly the Nintendo games that are the haves compared to the have nots. A few developers have been keen to support it though (espec...

What does the community think of Super Mario Odyssey?

For me personally, there are two big marquee games that defined the Nintendo Switch's explosive entrance onto the scene this year. First was a right-straight with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, followed by an uppercut later with S...

Check out 64 Bits' awesome Cuphead-style Dark Souls animation

Cuphead took seemingly forever to come to fruition, but boy, it was worth the wait. A huge part of the game's appeal, and its lengthy development, was its meticulous art style. The beautiful hand-drawn animation, based around the work of vi...

Stick it to The Man on Switch still makes me giggle

It’s no secret that I love this game. The new Switch version marks the fifth time that I’ve completed it, and I still loved every second. I almost never replay games, so this is an especially odd case. Even after all these ...

Review: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2

When I was working in video game retail, for many years one of the safest answers to the obligatory "What game should I buy my kid?" question was: "How's about talk to your child and learn about their interests." Hang on, no it wasn't. It w...

Rime has some issues on the Nintendo Switch

This game was originally released for other platforms back in May of this year. After finally getting my hands on the Nintendo Switch version, almost six months later, I think it’s fairly safe to say that the delay was a good call. Ev...

Review: Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together! DLC

I couldn't recommend Snipperclips enough when it launched alongside the Nintendo Switch and, to this day, it's still one of my favorite games for the system. It's creative, lighthearted, approachable, and gives you just enough room to be a ...

More Snipperclips is a very good thing

It's become easier to overlook early Nintendo Switch successes like Snipperclips now that we have Super Mario Odyssey and even Doom of all things to occupy our time on the system, but I hope you don't forget about it. The puzzle-solving, fr...

The Runaway Kid is still on the run in the second DLC chapter for Tarsier Studios' Little Nightmares, and who can blame 'em? There are some spine-chilling creeps aboard The Maw. This latest side-story, "The Hideaway," is set in the vessel's...

Review: Sonic Forces

It might be time for a new approach to 3D Sonic the Hedgehog games. We see so many great studios swoop in and re-invent (or do right by) the series, like PagodaWest Games and Headcannon with the recent Sonic Mania, but those are mostly 2D a...

Review: Super Lucky's Tale

Most people didn't get a chance to play Lucky's Tale because it was relegated to a VR-only platform. Hell, I did play it, enjoyed it even, and I wasn't aware that a full-blown sequel was coming out on Xbox One until recently. Even afte...

Join The Eggman Empire in new Sonic Forces trailer

Things are looking bad for Dr. Robotnik nee Eggman. After years of having his schemes foiled by a bunch of glove-loving, wisecracking animals, his public image has taken something of a kicking. How things might have been different if Sega h...
