Review: Croixleur Sigma On Nintendo Switch


Posted on March 29, 2019 by Rae Michelle Richards

Croixleur Sigma is a fast paced wave based beat’em up originally developed by Souvnir Cir and it now finds its way onto Nintendo Switch with a digital release on the E-Shop thanks to publisher Active Game Media. Having previously played Croixleur Sigma on PC at various game conferences in 2016 and on my own personal PlayStation Vita two years ago, I was well versed in this short but enjoyable arcade-like anime action game before even booting it up on my Switch. If juggling enemies in the air, large scores and extended combos are your jam then you’ll probably eat Croileur

Blazblue Cross Tag Battle On Nintendo Switch Is Basically Dead, Will New DLC Revive it?


Posted on January 24, 2019 by Rae Michelle Richards

Last year brought a number of brand new indie and AAA fighting games to fruition. Alongside big names like Final Fantasy Dissidia NT entering the console arena for the first time and Soul Calibur VI teaming up with Square Enix, Arc System Works launched their own dream crossover title, Blazblue: Cross Team Battle last June.  During the summer months – after launch – it felt like CTB was sure to continue to foster a healthy community and would be a game that had potential to not just be a flash in the pan. When your roster spans Rooster Teeth’s RBWY franchise, Atlus’ Persona

Fortnite Brings Back Popular LTMS With ‘The 14 Days of Fortnite’


Posted on December 18, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

14 Days of Fortnite Epic Games will be rotating classic, brand new and fan favorite Limited Time Modes in both the individual and team varieties every 48 and 24 hours respectively from December 19th until Jan 1st. We don’t exactly know what modes will return but honestly I’m hoping for Team Terror, Squad Terror and Gliding 50s returning during this event. The “terror” series of LTMS was honestly the most fun I had in the game during Season 6 – the addition of PVE zombies made it feel like a slice of STW crossed over into BR. Gliding 50s is

Check Out The First Hour of Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s World of Light


Posted on December 7, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

Today is the release of Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch! The last major release from Nintendo for the year crams in every playable character from previous entries of Smash, a roster of new challengers like Simon Belmont (Castlevania), K-Rool and most importantly an all-new single-player experience called The World of Light. Long time Smash fans might remember that after the cutscenes for Brawl were posted online before release, Project SORA decided to omit a traditional single-player campaign from Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS. 2018’s Ultimate marks the return of Single Player and earlier today Kelesti and I streamed the

SEGA Does What Nintenwon’t With SEGA Genesis Classics


Posted on November 28, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

The rivalry between Nintendo and SEGA that was forged in the crucible of 90s  video game marketing has been so exhaustively covered that there are multiple books about the subject (personally I’m partial to “How Nintendo Conquered America” and “Service Games” myself). Twenty plus years onward game companies are still trying just as hard to sell us their products, yes the whole Sonic Vs. Mario thing was entirely corporate marketing to sell a product, “system wars” at its’ core is absolute nonsense. Nintendo’s own Switch Console reveals two very different strategies when it comes to releasing classic titles and in

Everything Talked About During The Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest Q & A


Posted on November 19, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

Over the weekend Square Enix held the biennial Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest in Las Vegas. Expectations were high, and honestly it feels like Naoki Yoshida and co delivered with the debut trailer for the game’s latest expansion ShadowBringers. On Saturday Final Fantasy XIV Producer / Director Noaki Yoshida sat down with Sound Director Masayoshi Soken along with a translator. The pair took questions from curious Warriors of Light who traveled from all around the (physical) world to ask the pair questions about Eorzea, its lore and what the future had in store.  Topics ranged from how the developers plan

HANDS ON: Pokémon Let’s Go


Posted on November 13, 2018 by Jason Nason

Over the weekend Nintendo of Canada held their annual holiday preview event, which showcases their recently released and upcoming first party titles for the holidays. This year it was all about the Nintendo Switch and their two big titles on display were Pokémon Let’s Go: Pikachu / Pokémon Let’s Go: Eevee as well as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I’ve been looking forward to both games but and with the former set for release later this week I got some hands on time of the game. The version available to play at the event wasn’t the full game but was a

Posted on November 12, 2018 by Jason Nason

With the YouTube app just being released this week for the Nintendo Switch also comes the news that Netflix service will be ending for the Nintendo Wii in 2019. As first reported on Reddit from a Netflix email, Wii will no longer be supported for Netflix. Unfortunately, Nintendo will suspend all video streaming services on Wii – including the Netflix Channel – after January 30th, 2019. The Netflix website no longer lists the Wii (or the Wii U) as a suported device and only shows the Nintendo 3DS as a Nintendo platform for Netflix. However the email posted on Reddit

First trailer drops for Detective Pikachu live action movie…and it looks amazing


Posted on November 12, 2018 by Jason Nason

It’s here. The trailer for the first-ever live-action Pokémon movie, POKÉMON Detective Pikachu. To be honest this movie dropped off my radar. After the logo reveal a few months ago I didn’t think we’d get a trailer this soon, so when it dropped today I was curious. And now I’m super excited for the film. POKÉMON Detective Pikachu stars Ryan Reynolds as the titular character in the first-ever live-action movie based on the iconic Pokémon franchise. Fans everywhere can now experience Pikachu on the big screen as never before, as a talking detective Pikachu, a Pokémon like no other. The

Flashy 2.5D Arcade Shooter Asterbreed Now Available On Nintendo Switch


Posted on November 8, 2018 by Rae Michelle Richards

“Another 2D arcade shooter on Nintendo Switch?” you may be asking, hypothetical reader, but wait a second before closing the red X in the corner of your web browser. It’s true that there is no shortage of budget, classic and premium shoot’em ups on the portable Nintendo Hybrid but Asterbreed from Playism might still be worth a look – even if you own Ikaruga, 1945, Gunbird and all of the other classics. One of the hooks of Asterbreed is the way that gameplay seamlessly shifts from side-scroller shooter to an almost Armored Core 4-ish 3D behind the camera mode that has your speeding through
