Paper Mario: The Origami King (Review): MARIO, SMASH!

Growing up, I didn’t own consoles – my mom just didn’t allow it (hi, Ma). My siblings and I shared a massive desktop PC as well as a Game Boy. So, I didn’t experience the hilarity that is the Paper Mario series until my siblings, and I pitched in for a Wii. Because we’re Nintendo lovers

Now, Paper Mario has launched on the Nintendo Switch and boy, am I a happy clam. Let’s see why, shall we?

Star Wars Episode 1: Racer (Review): IT’S A NEW LAP RECORD

Anyone who knows me would know that I love the universe set a Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away. Star Wars was the epitome of my childhood – from the movies to the novels to the video games.

And now, one of my all-time favourites has been remastered for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Is it as good as I remember, though?

Now, the entire Western Skyrim is open for adventurers to explore. And my gosh is it just beautiful. Best of all? I could enjoy this on my Mac.

Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection reminded me of the good old days (Review)

Here’s a little secret: I love the Mega Man series. The original Rockman, the X-series, this series that I’m reviewing right now. You name it – I most probably love it… Probably

*side glance at X-7 and X-8*

When I heard that they’re remastering the Zero series for re-release, I had to buy it. And I did…on day one! I don’t do that often. But… is it as great as I remember?

Animal Crossing: New Horizons was the calm in my COVID-19 storm (Review)

A majority of us have had over two weeks to get settled into our new deserted island lives in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Honestly there’s no better time than now to for a game like this to be released, with almost everyone in lockdown or self-isolation thanks to COVID-19.

This is my first time playing an Animal Crossing title but I know of things and people off of second-hand information. I’ve honestly never been interested until now (though I would blame the lack of a Gamecube or NDS, really). Now I have my own Switch, I thought there wasn’t an excuse to not dive into this cult-favorite!

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX is a mouthful to say…but an absolute Blastoise!

Let me start this by saying that I’ve never played any of the original Mystery Dungeon games that were on the Game Boy Advance/DS, but I do love the Pokémon series. Rescue Team DX is a remake and combination of the two original DS games, Rescue Team Red and Rescue Team Blue. Since I’ve not played them, I’m going into this with fresh eyes.

What I know about this series in general is that its a dungeon crawler where you are the Pokémon rather than the Trainer, and boy oh boy does that idea get me excited. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a Pokémon?

#LateToTheParty Game Review: Pokemon Sword and Shield is an absolute banger, mate

I’m considering this a #LateToTheParty post because most people would have finished playing their copy of Pokémon Sword or Shield while here I am…just about finished because I only got my copy of Sword for Christmas.

What’s more perfect than immediately jumping into the Galar region when I’m in the area that inspired it’s creation?

Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle & the Millionaire’s Conspiracy (Switch, 2019) leaves no mystery or puzzle unsolved…literally

The Layton series played a big part in my schooling years. Little ol’ me and my Nintendo DS, absolutely stoked to have this series in hand. If there was any gaming franchise that kept my mind alight, these were it, thanks to all its puzzles.

There are now seven games in the Layton series. This is also the first to feature a different Layton as it’s protagonist, and a female one at that!

Trine 4: The Nightmare Prince brought back some good memories (Review)

The Trine series of games has been quite dear to me since my boyfriend introduced the sequel to me a few years ago. Its not very often that you get a puzzle role-playing game where you have to use the different abilities of such an eccentric bunch of characters and its not often that you get to share that experience with someone else. And now, Frozenbyte has brought back Zoya the Thief, Pontius the Knight and Amadeus the Wizard for a new 2.5D adventure in The Nightmare Prince.
