Yeah, Zelda: Breath of the Wild could work as an SNES game

Demakes fascinate me. It's impossible to literally go back in time and supplant retro games with newer concepts, knowing what we know now. But I'm engrossed in the artistry of it: especially if the theoretical concept works, or even better:...

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...

We've done it. We've reached the last batch of eShop releases before the end of the year, as only a few more indies are being pushed out after everyone already spent their holiday cash. Shovel Knight: King of Cards was the highlight la...

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...
