My Friend Pedro (Switch) Review

Blood. Bullets. Bananas

Some games focus on either style or substance. Devolver Digital and Deadtoast Entertainment’s My Friend Pedro exudes both in a riveting display of blood, bullets, and bananas. Despite being a 2D platformer, the game is packed with cinematic action, thanks to slow-motion effects and an agile, masked gunman. It’s basically The Matrix meets Deadpool, except the protagonist remains silent while his friend Pedro, a sentient banana, makes all the wisecracks. The potassium-rich accomplice also orders our hero to take out everyone in his path, which, aside from some twists, comprises the strange story.

Guacamelee! 2 (Switch) Review

A Hot Double Dip

In a saturated market of non-linear Metroidvania games, Drinkbox Studios’ Guacamelee! stood out for its emphasis on Luchador wrestling brawls and platforming challenges, all with a colorful Mexican flair. Years later, the developers revisit the formula with Guacamelee! 2, a solid—albeit iterative—sequel. Oh, and you can play as a chicken.

Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu & Eevee! (Switch) Review

Gotta Catch ’em All Again!

Pokémon has been a big part of my life since the original Pokémon Red and Blue came out over 20 years ago. The series has impacted me in many ways. It introduced me to anime and RPGs, helped me make friends, and got me through some of the toughest parts of my life. Naturally, I was excited to play Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, the first quasi-mainline game to arrive on a console. It’s not quite a spinoff, but it incorporates elements from the worldwide mobile phenomenon Pokémon GO into a remake of the original Game Boy game, Pokémon Yellow.
