Metroid Samus Returns – 3DS [Post Game Thoughts]

Metroid Samus Returns – 3DS [Post Game Thoughts]

Product Provided by Nintendo! Having finished up Metroid Samus Returns a couple of weeks back I am finally ready to discuss my experience with you! I’ve been hyped since the reveal at E3 so I came in with high expectations and they were met immediately upon booting up the game. The game is absolutely stunning in all aspects, from the amazing 3D cut scenes/backgrounds, to the art style, and music. It was very eye appealing and the setting of each area in the game really engaged my sense of exploration. Exploration is key is any Metroid game and Samus Returns does a great job at rewarding you. A handful of times during game-play I may have felt a bit lost, or not sure what to do, and yet... »

Yono and the Celestial Elephants (Review)

Yono and the Celestial Elephants (Review)

After our interview with Neckbolt about Yono and the Celestial Elephants, we received a review code so we could experience Yono’s adventure. Elephants are the legendary protectors of the world, and when a young elephant named Yono arrives, he begins a journey across the land to see how he can help people the way a mighty elephant should. The story is fairly basic. You visit each of the game’s towns and solve problems for the people there, while learning more about the Humans, Bonewights, and Mekani that live in the world. It’s made more entertaining by the interesting and often amusing characters you meet in each place. Yono and the Celestial Elephants has a lot of dialogue... »

Quest of Dungeons (Review)

Quest of Dungeons (Review)

After our interview about Quest of Dungeons, Upfall Studios sent us a review code for the Switch version so we could delve into the depths of its dungeons for ourselves. Quest of Dungeons is a turn-based dungeon crawler, although it does not make use of a menu the way many turn-based RPGs do. Instead, each action you take uses up a turn, whether it’s moving step by step through the dungeon or attacking enemies. This is a fun system that lets you fight quickly while still taking time to think through your actions. You pick your class at the start of the game, and that will determine the types of basic attack you can use. As you explore and defeat enemies, you’ll often find skill b... »

What Super Mario Odyssey Kingdoms Have Yet to be Revealed?

What Super Mario Odyssey Kingdoms Have Yet to be Revealed?

Nintendo has shown a lot of Kingdoms in Super Mario Odyssey, and since they’re all vast worlds (possibly with multiple areas in each), it already sounds like a huge game. However, during the recent Nintendo Direct, they said they wouldn’t spoil them all. That suggests there are still Kingdoms that haven’t been revealed. Confirmed Kingdoms Cap Kingdom Metro Kingdom Cascade Kingdom Sand Kingdom Wooded Kingdom Luncheon Kingdom Seaside Kingdom Snow Kingdom   The fact that we have the names of specific locations within these Kingdoms, such as New Donk City in the Metro Kingdom and Tostarena in the Sand Kingdom, already suggests there’s a lot to them we haven’t s... »

An Interview With the Developers of Wulverblade

An Interview With the Developers of Wulverblade

Wulverblade is a side scrolling beat-em-up coming soon for the Nintendo Switch, set in ancient Roman Britain. After watching the trailer for Wulverblade, we got in touch with the developers to learn more about it. Many games opt for a medieval setting, so it’s interesting to see a game like Wulverblade choose 120 AD for its setting. What inspired you to pick this historical setting and premise? Britain’s history goes back many thousands of years yet we rarely see or hear much about the times before Rome had settled here. Our ancient history has always been of interest to me and visiting stone circles and old Roman ruins had always ignited my imagination.  There are so many incredible t... »
