Fire Emblem Warriors Review – Switch

Koei Tecmo’s Warriors franchise – also known by its Japanese title of “Musou” – has fans the world over, but we’d be willing to bet that quite a few of the people who picked up the superb Hyrule Warriors on Wii U and 3DS had never played any of the previous entries. Combing the hack-and-slash gameplay of the series with the lore of Zelda was, in retrospect, a masterstroke; it unlocked a whole new generation …

GeekDad Review: ‘Rogue Trooper Redux’ for the Nintendo Switch

Originally released on consoles in 2006, Rogue Trooper was an enjoyable but ultimately forgotten third-person shooter from the bygone PS2 era. Thankfully, it’s now been reborn—like some futuristic blue-skinned super soldier—as Rogue Trooper Redux on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. I grew up in the 1980s, well before seemingly every American geek was caught up in the throes of rampant Anglophilia. We had our own beloved UK imports, of course, but, in this …

Enlarge / Remember when this game was supposedly a sign of a less squeaky-clean image for Nintendo? Since removing the blood in the original Mortal Kombat on the Super NES, Nintendo has earned its image as the family-friendly alternative to the more sex-and-violence-soaked console competition. New reporting from The Wall Street Journal suggests Nintendo is working to change that with the Switch, but any such effort is going to be an uphill climb that could …

Coming up to the Halloween season, one might be looking for something appropriately eerie on the Switch eShop, and the word ‘witch’ on its own might immediately get the spook sensors reacting.

The Flame in the Flood Review – Switch eShop

At first glance, The Flame in the Flood depicts a beautifully crafted world with its use of stylized art and charming audio. What isn’t quickly apparent about The Molasses Flood’s debut title is that it actually details the harsh reality of survival. Hunger, thirst, sleep, broken legs and bear attacks, it’s all part of a world that is constantly trying to knock the player down. This sense of realism is spot on and is The …
