Valiant Hearts: The Great War (Switch) Review

Connected Hearts at War

Valiant Hearts isn’t your typical war game. It isn’t a first-person shooter where you run in guns blazing. Rather, it is a slower puzzle adventure title centering on four ordinary individuals. It shares their poignant experiences during the Great War, otherwise known as World War I.

Here’s my Video Review for your viewing pleasure!

SNK 40th Anniversary Collection (Switch) Review

SNK to the Past

Retro game collections are a great way to preserve the past. SNK 40th Anniversary Collection celebrates the golden age of Japanese developer SNK. This compilation curates titles from the company’s earlier years predating the Neo Geo era, so series like King of Fighters, Fatal Fury, and Metal Slug are out. But there are still treats for fans of the arcade classics.

Flipping Death (Switch) Review

Ghost Tricks and Treats

A highlight of Nintendo’s Super Mario Odyssey was its capture mechanic – the ability to take over another creature’s body to complete challenges.

Yomawari: The Long Night Collection (Switch) Review

A Night of Horrors

The word Yomawari roughly translates to “night watchman.” It’s an apt description of my experience with Yomawari: The Long Night Collection: patrolling a small Japanese town alone at night. In this survival horror game, monsters lurk around every corner, ready to kill. This collection compiles two games: Yomawari: Night Alone and its sequel Yomawari: Midnight Shadows. Both appear to be cute adventures at first glance, but as the old saying goes, “things aren’t always as they seem.”

Super Mario Party (Switch) Review

A Super Star Shindig

Mario Party is one of those series that most gamers have played at least once, whether as the host of Mario’s minigame shenanigans or as an unwilling participant to an all-night 50-turn board game. Once a yearly franchise, the series hasn’t seen a console release since Mario Party 9 and 10 controversially changed key gameplay mechanics. That is, until now, with the Nintendo Switch release of Super Mario Party, which restores the core experience, alongside a handful of new modes.
