LIMBO for Nintendo Switch review: As creepy as ever

Reviewed on: Nintendo Switch. Copy supplied by publisher. Originally released in 2010, Danish developer Playdead’s LIMBO arrived on the gaming scene at the peak of the indie game boom. It carved a place for itself among the plethora of 2.5D platformers with its distinctive art style and minimalist narrative storytelling, providing an eerie experience that got players and critics alike talkin...[Read More]

Milanoir review: Pixel fiction

Reviewed on Switch, copy supplied by publisher. Milanoir wears its influences on its sleeves – a homage to 70s Italian action movies that inspired the likes of Quentin Tarantino, this pixel shooter has a lot of charm, but unfortunately cops a bullet to the face when it comes to gameplay. It’s hard not to like the style Milan based developers Italo Games created, it’s punchy, detailed and has a kil...[Read More]

Gotta announce ’em all: Two Pokémon games to come to Switch this year

Nintendo revealed their Poké plans earlier today with a trio of announcements involving the long running series. Pokémon Quest is available on the Nintendo Switch from today, and features a fresh style for the series with a cube aesthetic. The game is “free-to-start” which doesn’t sound promising for those who were disappointed by the Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp mobile game and ...[Read More]

Fe Review: Impawsibly Beautiful

Reviewed on Xbox One Fe is a uniquely gorgeous platformer about a fox-like cub, a ‘Fe’, who uses its singing to unite with other animals to stop an invasion of robots, the Silent Ones, that are capturing the animals for… some reason. At least, that’s how I attempted to explain the story to a friend. Fe doesn’t utilise any dialogue; an interesting narrative concept that’s hard to pull off successfu...[Read More]

Bayonetta 1 & 2 for Nintendo Switch review: The good kind of bonkers

Reviewed on: Nintendo Switch. Copy supplied by publisher. It is commonplace nowadays for publishers to re-release previous instalments of the franchises they’re launching sequels to on their new platforms, see PlayStation with the Nathan Drake Collection ahead of Uncharted 4 or Xbox’s Master Chief Collection ahead of Halo 5. Depending on who you ask this is seen as either a good thing ...[Read More]

Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King review: The sincerest form of flattery

Reviewed on: Nintendo Switch. Copy purchased by reviewer. Let’s get this out of the way early: Blossom Tales is heavily influenced by The Legend of Zelda, in particular A Link to the Past on the Super Nintendo. It is a game where you play as a knight who has to travel the land, visiting different puzzle and combat-filled dungeons and find various items in the dungeons to fight bosses (including a ...[Read More]

A brief Enter the Gungeon Nintendo Switch review: Gun running on the go

Reviewed on: Nintendo Switch Despite the Nintendo Switch having gone from strength to strength this year, with the exception of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth, there hasn’t really been many roguelikes on the system, which is kind of weird considering how well-suited they are for short play sessions on the go. However, one of 2016’s best roguelikes, Enter the Gungeon, has just arrived on the syst...[Read More]

Rogue Trooper Redux review: I’m blue da ba dee da ba daa

Reviewed on: Playstation 4. Copy supplied by publisher. There’s no stopping the remaster train, it seems, and even games that didn’t exactly set the world on fire on their initial release are being given a second chance. Today we have the eleven year-old 2000AD title, Rogue Trooper. Initially released in 2006, the original game on PS2 and Xbox was a decent cover-based shooter that did ...[Read More]

Skyrim VR Fus-Ro-Sucks, but it’s good on Switch – PAX Aus 2017

Skyrim hasn’t been allowed much rest, despite the game’s 2011 release, it will be receiving two new versions at the tail end of this year on PlayStation VR and Nintendo Switch respectively. Making the rounds at PAX Australia this weekend I was fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to check out both of the upcoming versions and compare them to the hundreds of hours I spent with the base gam...[Read More]
