~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Hi, there gamers, Bre here with a whole lot of good coming at you from Nintendo themselves! As most of you know, recently Nintendo posted a Nintendo direct with this came so much awesome news! Let’s start at the beginning with 3DS news and coming soon:

This game is being brought to you by the 3Ds and includes all your favorite characters from the previous ones, though some are rocking new styles! This game will keep you on your toes and quick thinking when it launches on: August 3, 2018!





Next up on our amazing game list is one that is a cross of post-apocalyptic style races in “Dillon’s Dead-heat Breakers”! In this game you will defend the frontier, as a red flash character named “Dillon.” Multiplayer allows fun with friends in this game, as they join in as gunners to help you on your mission! Can’t wait to try this game? A demo version will launch on May 10, 2018 with the full game becoming available on May 24, 2018!





Remember when the question “Are Mario, Luigi, and Bower better together” was answered by a previous 3D game with your favorite brothers? Well now we’re taking on that question again with the new game “Mario and Luigi: Bowsers Inside Story and Bower Junior’s Journey.” This game will take you into the story with your favorite two brothers trying to find a cure for the blorps that is threatening the mushroom kingdom. The two-team duo though have been swallowed by Bowser and must fight to find their way out and save the kingdom. This game gives you the opportunity though not only to play as the brothers, but Bowser too!  Then on top of all that you get to see what goes on behind the scenes with Bower Jr as you play in his eyes and his story! This game launches to the 3DS sometime in 2019!





The last major game that Nintendo has given us on the 3Ds this direct is a twist on a favorite character from one of our childhood tv shows! Detective Pikachu stars none other than Pikachu himself trying to solve the case of why the Pokémon have went wild and broke the peace between them and humans. This Pikachu though is a bit different from the other, he’s rough and has a bit of mouth. The cool thing about this game is we get a new amiibo designed for this game and is even bigger than the rest! The game and amiibo are available for pre-purchase right now, and launches March 23, 2018!





The last game we have announced is a remake of a classic tale, “Luigi’s Mansion” is being brought to the 3Ds by Nintendo! This game was first released on the game cube, and everyone loved it! Nintendo is not giving us a more high def remake, and we can’t wait to play it! This game will launch sometime this year!





Now onto the switch titles:

Kirby Star Allies brings a new twist to the classic game of Kirby! You and your friends can battle it out as Kirby and his friends and take on enemies together. Characters such as King Dede, Meta Knight and many more! Friends will be released in DLC throughout the year too! The demo for this game is already out and available via the e-shop! The full game itself will launch March 16, 2018!





Dark Souls fans can rejoice as the game has been announcing to be coming to the Switch very soon, but the new content that we got is very sweet. The Nintendo direct brought us the news of an amiibo coming out soon for the game! As if that wasn’t enough, before the game launches there will be a network test giving players new and old to have a chance to test the game before it launches! Dates for the network test will come soon!! The full game and amiibo will be available “May 25. 2018!”





Next up we got a classic game with some new twists and friends joining the game in “Mario Tennis Aces!” This game is a classic having versions released onto many systems, but the switch version is bringing in all the fun of multiplayer, portability, and strategy into one game! You can play as your favorite Mario character and take on matches using things such as zone shots, blocks, and trick shots! Find the perfect combination of these and more when the game launches on “June 22, 2018!” Oh yeah, this game comes with story mode also!





Okay so a few months ago Sony launched their high def remastered version of their classic game “Crash Bandicoot”, and us Nintendo fans were left bummed because we were left out on this game. Be bummed no more though Nintendo fans, as this game is coming to the Switch in “Crash Bandicoot the N’sane Trilogy” which launches July 20, 2018!”





Some other games we can look forward to on the switch and 3DS include: Undertale, Octopath Travelers including a special edition version, Sushi Striker, Hyrule Warriors Infinitive Edition and many more!





Oh, there is one thing we been dying to share with you from our friends in the Squid Research lab themselves! There is a new agent in town, and they don’t seem to be like the others. This agent comes to us from the Octolings themselves and is here to help us squids in a whole new world and adventures. The Splatoon DLC “Splatoon Octo Expansion will launch on: Summer 2018! With this comes an update that will feature new gear, and once you beat the story mode on this expansion you and friends can choose to stay true to squids or be an octoling yourself! Pre-order is up now, and if you do pre-order you will get some sweet gear just for doing so!





Oh wait, we just got some breaking news Nintendo fans! This one Switch players have been waiting on and predicting for a bit now and finally it has been answered!  Super Smash Brothers is coming to the Switch brining in your favorite squid kid to the fight! We don’t have an official release date for the game yet, but the game will be out sometime this year!





There are so many amazing games coming to us this year from Nintendo, so be prepared for loads of fun and loads of sleepless nights gamers! As always keep on gaming, and talk to you soon!

Review: Super Mario Odyssey (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Grand Theft Odyssey!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed and published by Nintendo, Super Mario Odyssey is Mario's latest 3D platforming adventure and as expected we enjoyed every minute of the game, however we couldn't help, but notice that the game didn't feel as magical as previous 3D Mario titles, why is that? Keep reading our review to find out why.



There's no doubt that Nintendo pulled out all the stops with the production value of Super Mario Odyssey and it shows between the incredible storytelling, incredible audio-visual presentation, and sheer scope, however the game lost something so much more important in the process.

Super Mario Odyssey lacks the charm of previous Mario games, the level designs are lacking compared to most previous entries in the series and the game is quite honestly, ridiculously easy to the point where it felt like we were playing a game geared towards young children.



That's not all, the gameplay is sort of mission-based like Grand Theft Auto and unfortunately falls victim to the same issues that plagued the Jak & Daxter games after the initial title, The Precursor Legacy and feels like a completely different series now.

Don't get us wrong it's a solid game, but it doesn't feel like a Mario game at its core and that's a serious problem when you're talking about a series that was not only at the top of the sales charts with every release in the franchise, but arguably the most beloved series in the video game industry, it honestly makes no sense why Nintendo would choose to reinvent the series at this time.



The controls in the game are very responsive and easy to learn which is always a good thing in our opinions.

Visually Super Mario Odyssey looks absolutely spectacular and really pushes the limit of the Nintendo Switch's hardware especially in docked mode, but it still looks great in handheld mode as well!

The soundtrack is quite varied as well with some pretty amazing vocal songs, however the music in the game's many levels was somewhat lacking, which was quite disappointing, but even so it's still great to listen to.



Bottom-Line:

While the gameplay and story is solid, Super Mario Odyssey reinvented the series despite there being no need to do so and in the process has lost some of that special Nintendo magic the series has possessed for decades. While the controls and audio-visual presentation are fantastic we still give the game the lowest score of any mainstream release in the Mario series to-date. While the game is solid it was a major disappointment and as such we give Super Mario Odyssey a solid level of recommendation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10

Review: Squareboy Vs. Bullies ~ Arena Edition (Switch eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Clobberin' Buliz!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Squareboy Vs. Bullies: Arena Edition for Nintendo Switch was developed and published by Ratalaika Games. The game is obviously heavily inspired by Gameboy/NES era beat 'em ups and brawlers, but is it a heavy-hitter like the games of the genre from that era or is it a featherweight unworthy of your attention? We feel that it's a solid game that falls a bit short of the greats of yesteryear, however we still liked the game and here's why!



The story in the game is silly to say the least, but does seem to take some inspiration from the 80's martial arts flick Karate Kid and it's all lighthearted fun. Don't expect a story-heavy experience though as gameplay takes center stage and it's quite fun actually. Basically you must fight your way through a bunch of stages filled with bullies with your limited fighting moves and certain weapons and objects that can be obtained from enemies or picked up and thrown at them to cause major damage.



Exclusive to the Arena version of the game is Arena Mode where you fight in a fixed area of various stages while progressively bigger hordes of bullies appear to attempt to overwhelm you. This can be a fun little distraction, but is ultimately little more than that.



Overall Squareboy Vs Bullies: Arena Edition is a very solid game, but it's got it's share of problems. First off, the game is very short in length and can be beaten 100% within an hour or two, which is shorter than we had hoped. The gameplay can also get somewhat repetitive, but thankfully the co-op mode makes up for this. To be honest the co-op was personally the highlight of the game for us and added alot of enjoyment value that would otherwise be missing "We're looking at you Vita version".

Secondly, the game is also extremely easy and posed very little challenge which is a definite miss because challenging gameplay is a must in the scrolling brawler / beat 'em up sub-genre.



Back to the positives, Squareboy Vs. Bullies: Arena Edition has flawless easy to learn controls that will allow players of any skill level to play well which is a definite plus, especially for retro-inspired games such as this one!

The audio-visual presentation is also fantastic with authentic 16-bit graphics that are quite detailed and the unique art style of the squaretastic characters. Everything comes together perfectly on a visual standpoint. And while not quite as good as the visuals, the soundtrack was enjoyable and fits the game well.



Bottom-Line:

With solid gameplay , flawless controls, and a fantastic audio-visual presentation, Squareboy Vs. Bullies: Arena Edition for the Switch is a fairly enjoyable worthwhile experience that fans of the beat 'em up genre should enjoy, however the game is a cakewalk to beat and short to boot so it may not be for everyone. The local co-op added alot to the game which makes this the definitive version of the game. Overall we enjoyed the game and feel that it's a fairly solid experience and as such we give the game a solid level of recommendation!

Review: Splatoon 2 (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Squids or Kids Too!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Developed and published by Nintendo, Splatoon 2 is the sequel to the fairly popular Wii U shooter Splatoon which ended up being one of the top-selling games on the ill-fated dual-screen home console. Does this sequel hold a candle to its predecessor? Continue reading our review to find out!



Arguably the weakest aspect of the original Splatoon title that released on the Wii U was the single player Hero Mode which had only a handful of short stages that were too similar to one-another and were fairly easy to beat. The whole mode could be finished within an hour or two, but luckily Hero Mode in Splatoon 2 is much more robust with longer, more difficult stages, and much more variety to the tasks. You can easily spend 10-20 hours in the mode this time around which is fantastic news for any squid!

The gameplay in Splatoon 2 is mostly the same as its predecessor, however a few new techniques have been added such as a power shield to guard against certain attacks and of course new weapons. Multiplayer is as fun as you'd expect, however we did experience major instability and frequent disconnects while playing online which wasn't a problem with the original title on Wii U.



Salmon Run is a fun and challenging mode that will really test your mettle and can earn you some good equipment should you do well at the mode! The controls are good, but ironically the original Splatoon was much better in this regard. You'll find out why in our review of Splatoon (Wii U Retail) which will be going live early next month.

There are alot of rehashed stages alongside new ones, unfortunately alot of the old stages have been simplified and many good hiding spots in those stages have been removed which is a shame. Splatfests are the main attraction in this series and are basically a competitive poll where you vote for your favorite poll option which will basically become your team and people on both teams splat it out to prove who is top squid in the arena!



The major drawback of Splatoon 2 and the Nintendo Switch in-general is the lack of voice chat which can only be done if you have a mobile device that is compatible with Nintendo's voice chat app for Switch which is just insane in our opinions. Sure almost everyone in Japan has a mobile device, but elsewhere the numbers are as low as 35% -40% which means that depending on region there will be large groups of players online who won't be able to strategise with their team members which could give certain teams a clear-cut advantage.



Visually the game looks great with a better resolution than the previous game in the new series, however we did notice that in certain returning stages there were certain details missing that made them seem less impressive. The upside is that you'd likely miss these details during a heated match, but it still is a disappointing downgrade. The soundtrack on the other hand is just as good as the first game's and the Squid Sisters music videos are just as fun to watch and listen to which will be music to every squid's ears we're sure!



Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay, solid controls, fantastic single player and multiplayer modes, and a flawless soundtrack, Splatoon 2 is a game that any Switch owner should thoroughly enjoy, however downgraded returning stages that are less detailed and are missing many hiding spots, as well as the lack of actual in-game voice chat options really hurt the game's overall score, but regardless we give Splatoon 2 a good level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 8/10
