Splatoon 2 review: Cephaloads of fun

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  Splatoon 2 is a harrowing shooter in which mutated child soldiers battle it out to make their colour reign supreme. Or it’s a lighthearted ink filled mess, read into it however you want. What it most certainly is though, is a load of good fun. Admittedly I didn’t really get heavily into the original Splatoon, which is surprising ...[Read More]

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers review: Should have been a contender

Reviewed on Nintendo Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  I’ll be frank from the get go with this one, I don’t care for Street Fighter II that much anymore. Sure, I can see its relevance as a game of note, and I used to enjoy it A LOT back in the day, but with an entire sub-series with seven entries dedicated to the game, I think we’re at a point where we can move on. That being s...[Read More]

Death Squared is coming to the Nintendo Switch

The brutally hard Australian developed Death Squared will be making its way to Nintendo’s latest console in Q2 of 2017. If you missed our review of the PS4 version of the challenging puzzle game, we praised its well thought out levels and setting. Being a strong multiplayer title the game lends itself exceptionally well to the Switch, which allows for convenient multiplayer gameplay in a ran...[Read More]

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe review: The blue shell of racers

Reviewed on Switch, copy supplied by Nintendo.  There’s something special about Mario Kart, it’s one of those rare series that transcends typical games by being so accessible it’s virtually a mandatory social experience. A perfect mix of skill, luck and chaos, it’s managed to stay a relevant Nintendo staple since 1992, and in my opinion, Mario Kart 8 stands out as the pinna...[Read More]

The use of amiibos in Breath of the Wild kind of sucks

It’s been widely reported that amiibos can generate loot in BOTW. Which, is pretty interesting, and kind of cool as a time saver when resource gathering, but the fact some of the items seemingly can’t be found in the game without these figures, is making my eyebrows rise to dangerous heights. The most notable piece of loot is Epona, Link’s equine pal who is close to the heart of anyone...[Read More]

Nintendo Switch impressions: Is it worth it just yet?

So Nintendo released a new console, you may have heard about it. Over the past week I’ve spent, quite frankly, a disgusting amount of hours playing with a shiny new Nintendo Switch, and now I’m going to convey how that experience was to you through words, because that is what an article is. Out of the box, the Switch was hands down the easiest console I’ve ever set up. It was sim...[Read More]

Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s differences on Switch compared to Wii U

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a title that some people bought their Wii U’s specifically to play, even when their was no firm release date or official title. So when it was announced for the Nintendo Switch, then referred to as the NX, you could sense the wave of crushing disappointment from fans, like a thousand voices cried out in terror before suddenly taking their outrage to Twi...[Read More]

Questions we can answer on the Nintendo Switch

On the weekend we were fortunate enough to get our hands on the Nintendo Switch (you may have already read about how filthy it was). It was a pretty great evening, we spent three hours up close and personal with Nintendo’s new system, some new games, and the Joy-Con controllers. Whether you’re considering a preorder or just curious, I’m sure you have some questions about the syst...[Read More]

1-2 Switch is surprisingly fun, but also a little filthy…

I stared coldly into Charlie’s eyes, determined to furiously stroke the flaccid udder of an imaginary cow faster than he possibly could. “I am going to milk you dry,” he quips, with a twinkle of madness in his eye. Yes, that was a real exchange that really happened, with absolutely no embellishment. Welcome to the future of Nintendo… Charlie and I were exchanging these filt...[Read More]

The Nintendo Switch comes out March 3rd, here’s what you need to know

So yesterday you probably saw the internet went silly with Nintendo Switch articles. The unreasonably long hashtag #nintendoswitchpresentation took Twitter by storm, as Nintendo announced the release date, price, features and games for their upcoming console, the Switch. Instead of bombarding your feed with articles, we thought we’d compile some of the key information into one neat package f...[Read More]

Watch the Nintendo Switch announcement here

Today’s the day folks, today we find out more info about this little home/portable console hybrid that Nintendo ceremoniously revealed this past October. (Although if you ask me, you should watch Jim Sterling’s rundown of the thing instead, it was much more entertaining). Yes, it’s Nintendo Switch Presentation day. Nintendo have previously said today’s announcement would de...[Read More]
