We Review: Splatoon 2

Can it have been two years since the original Splatoon came to us in a spurt of glorious, riotous colour and 4-on-4 mayhem? Wow…time flies! Well, the inklings are back in Splatoon 2 with a new adventure with new toys (read: weapons), gear, and opponents to fight, as well as new Splatfests and even a few new modes of play. And all of this on the Nintendo Switch, a console far more popular than its older, neglected awesome brother, the Wii U. Grab your super soakers and meet me in the Underpass for some cephalopod on cephalopod action.

We Review: Ever Oasis

Ever Oasis is a new game by Grezzo for the Nintendo 3DS, and introduces us to a new world with new characters. The little handheld seems to attract more new IP than its bigger cousins, but new IP always means new risks. So, does Ever Oasis sip the cool waters of the desert? Or does it stumble down a dune to fall into a mirage? Grab your camel and join me for this review, and we’ll find the answer together.

We Review: ARMS

ARMS is the Nintendo Switch’s take on fighting games, in the same way the Splatoon (and the upcoming Splatoon 2) is Nintendo’s take on team shooters. Naturally, there’s an extra element at work that makes the game unlike others that you’ve played. So naturally, we donned our rocket boxing gloves and spring-loaded boomerangs to see what the game is about.

We Review: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda is one of the longest-running game series around, and has always been a popular game. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released a few months ago, but we’re only now getting around to reviewing it. In our defence, it’s a pretty big game, all right? Let’s get our Master Sword on and explore Hyrule.

We Review: MXGP3

MXGP3 is the imaginatively-titled sequel to last year’s MXGP2 (reviewed by us over here). If you haven’t read the last review (or don’t particularly want to), MXGP is a series of realistic motocross racer games developed by Milestone games. The games are noted for their licensed franchises and queerly difficult learning curve. MXGP3 boasts 18 international tracks to ride on,132 real riders, and 24 different kinds of bikes ranging between two and four stroke engines. Right, that’s the down low, let’s get into the review!

We Review: Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas

Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas is a Zelda-like that has been prominent on mobile devices, but has made the jump from there to the PlayStation Vita (yes! It’s still alive and they still make games for it!) Is it a worthy game in the style of the legendary warrior Link? Or is it doomed to die, tangled in its own morass of bombs and swords?

We Review: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

Warhammer 40,000 games have been going since at least the early 1990s, and most of them have had some manner of strategic bent as a nod to their tabletop wargaming roots. The latest game, Warhammer: Dawn of War III, sees a return to the RTS roots of the original Dawn of War, ditching some of the RPG elements of the prior game. Grab your armour and weapons, and let’s get ready to kick some Ork butt. Or Eldar butt if that’s what you prefer.

We Review: Lego City Undercover (Switch)

Lego City Undercover was a game that first appeared on the Nintendo Wii U way back in 2013. A prequel, The Chase Begins, was made for for the 3DS (which we reviewed over here), and we quite enjoyed the game. I never did get around to playing the original, though; this is the perpetual trouble with being a reviewer: new games keep appearing on the horizon that need coverage, so it’s almost impossible to go back and play older stuff unless, of course, there’s a remaster or rerelease on a newer system. So hooray for those! And with that, let’s get into the review of Lego City Undercover! This review specifically covers the Nintendo Switch version, although much of the review can be generalized out to the PS4, XB1, and Windows versions of the game.

We Review: Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a full remake of the SNES game, Fire Emblem Gaiden (a Japanese word here meaning “side story”). The game was never localised for the Western market until now, and Intelligent Systems has done a complete overhaul of the game to bring us what was once considered the “black sheep of the Fire Emblem family”. Nintendo has been riding high on Fire Emblem games recently, and they are much beloved by fans, but can a remake of an older game be anything as good as the newer stuff coming out, like, say, Fire Emblem Fates (which we reviewed here)? Read on to find out!
