The Breath of the Wild Critique: The Honeymoon Phase (part 1/4)

Note: After writing this over the course of several days, I decided that it was far too long for any mortal to sit still long enough to read. I'll be breaking this up into a four-parter, because rather than overwhelm with 10 opinions on 10 topics, I'd rather inspire some discussion on one or two at a …

Limited Edition Physical Copies on the Nintendo Switch – Who Will Step Up to the Plate?

I've talked a lot on here about LimitedRunGames, and a little about IndieBox, and how I think companies like these are helping save the physical release. While they have some light competition, for the most part, they represent somewhat of a monopoly on limited print physical releases for the Playstation 4 and Vita. Buyers of these …

April Fools 2017: What’s Next for the Legend of Zelda Franchise? Here are Some Ideas!

Breath of the Wild has been extremely well received, and naturally we're all looking at Nintendo and wondering, "what's next?" It's pretty hard to top perfect 10 scores practically across the board. We've seen Zelda in side scrolling platformer, 2D, 3D, 2D with 3D capabilities, and now, open-world. What could Nintendo possibly do with the …

You Know What’d Be Sweet? A Mii Game on the Switch!

First, let me just say I never got into Miitomo, and at least according to various sources, it never took off in the west. Personally, I had exactly three friends on the thing. And one of them only used it once. Granted, there wasn't a whole lot to do with it and it was deleted from …

What Do I DISLIKE About the Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo Switch Impressions + “Hue” Giveaway Results!

I feel like I've just woken up from a coma. It's a new week, the bleary-eyed Switch early adopters of the world, awakening from their long slumbers, presumably following some long hours in Breath of the Wild. I found myself in that camp, waking up with a deep feeling of dread that usually accompanies the day of my yearly …

Will the Switch Revive Social Gaming?

It's late 1996. The holiday season is coming up fast, and the "gift of the year" gracing the top of every kid's wishlist is none other than the Nintendo 64, Nintendo's answer to the Playstation and Sega Saturn.

Gamers Need to Realize Something

Earlier yesterday, the price that Nintendo will charge for the online component of the Switch was revealed, or at least in Japanese currency. The rough number for the US Dollar is presumed to be between $17-$26, depending on the exchange rate and whatever fluff Nintendo adds on top. This has been met with rejoice, anger, and the …
