REVIEW – Nintendo Switch OLED Model

By |October 22nd, 2021|Review|

Half a decade ago, Nintendo unveiled the Nintendo Switch, the successor to the Wii U that, unbeknown to us then, would quickly lift them out of the dry patch caused by their struggling console. Not to say that the Wii U was bad, in fact, I absolutely adore mine and hosted some amazing titles, it just didn’t sell very well or got frequent enough support from other developers.

The past five years have seen a range of fantastic titles and a new way to play, touting its ability to be used on a TV screen or on the go. The console also received a hardware variation back in 2019, the Nintendo Switch Lite, which introduced a handheld only console for those always on the go with a smaller budget. In addition to the Lite, a revised model was released earlier that year with an improved battery and more efficient CPU.

This year introduced another new version in the form of the Nintendo Switch OLED Model. This upgrade includes features such as a larger screen, crisper visuals, improved audio, and more. Will this new model shine bright in the hands of gamers, or is it nothing more than a dull glimmer of an upgrade? Find out in our review, after the break!


REVIEW – Metroid Dread

By |October 20th, 2021|Metroid, Metroid Dread, Nintendo, Nintendo Switch, NintyBuzz, Review|

It has been nineteen years since Metroid Fusion, the last game in the series to actually take place at the end of the Metroid timeline. While it hasn’t been nearly as long since the last game, being 2017’s Metroid: Samus Returns, Metroid Dread marks the first time an original game in the series since 2010’s Metroid: Other M in the original continuity (though the Prime series has had Metroid Prime: Federation Force in 2016). It’s been a mighty long wait for fans of the 2D series too, with fourteen years since Metroid Zero Mission. Speculation already began in 2006 when listings for “Metroid Dread” started circulating in various outlets, implied to be for the Nintendo DS. With all this time to ponder over the possibilities, the time is finally upon us, has the wait for Metroid Dread been worth it?


REVIEW – WarioWare: Get It Together

By |September 17th, 2021|Review|

QA (Quality Assurance) is one of the most important aspects of any video game (let alone, product); Wario and his developer friends of Diamond City are going to find out just how important in WarioWare: Get It Together. Mischievous bugs and glitches have invaded Wario’s brand new release, causing him and his team to get sucked right up into the game… think Jumanji on a budget! On the bright side, at least they can enjoy the fully immersive experience!

Will WarioWare: Get It Together bring in all those big bucks clamoured for by Wario, or does the game just not quite have it all together? Find out in our review, after the break!


Feature: The Significance of Metroid Dread

By |September 3rd, 2021|Metroid|

During the E3 2021 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo revealed an upcoming title that appears to have come as a surprise and shock to many Nintendo fans. For the first time in nineteen years, they announced a brand new “2D” Metroid title in the long running series. 

Metroid Dread, for those uninitiated, is a sequel to Metroid Fusion, which was released on the Game Boy Advance system in 2002. Dread is a direct sequel to this title, the fifth traditional game and the first new story for this style of game in almost two decades. In this feature, I will attempt to express why I feel the announcement of Dread is a massive deal for Metroid fans, Nintendo supporters and gamers of all kinds.


Unite to the Occasion; Pokémon UNITE, One Month Later

By |August 28th, 2021|Nintendo, Nintendo Switch, Pokémon, Pokémon UNITE|

It’s been about a month now since Pokémon UNITE hit the Switch, with the mobile release coming up in September, and it’s about time I gathered my thoughts on the title. Pokémon’s take on the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (better known as MOBA) genre certainly has a lot going for it, with hundreds of Pokémon to choose from for potential playable candidates which makes the whole thing very appealing. But through all that, some major problems occur which can make or break the experience with alarming regularity. Join us after the break as we discuss some issues and ways to potentially address them.
