REVIEW – The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening

Twenty-six years ago, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening was released for the Nintendo GameBoy, and five years later in a colourised release for the GameBoy Color. Now, the adventure has been reimagined for a new audience with a release on Nintendo Switch, displayed in a three-dimensional widescreen view, compared to the original game’s square ratio. The game retains its traditional top-down formula, and is an enhanced remake of the original, including features from Link’s Awakening DX. But how does it compare to those classic GameBoy games?

How Many Franchises Are in Smash?

With the recent additions of Hero and Banjo & Kazooie to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter roster — and the impending arrival of Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury and more DLC on the way — Smash Ultimate is by far the biggest crossover in gaming history.

Smash Bros. developers have made it clear in the recent Nintendo Direct and its aftermath that they want to continue to capitalize on how big of a crossover Smash Ultimate has become. The big question remains: just how many different gaming franchises will be represented in Smash once the DLC cycle ends?

Introducing Ring Fit Adventure

Last week, Nintendo teased a brand new experience for Nintendo Switch that involved Nintendo Switch owners performing various types of physical activity with special ring and strap accessories. Today, we finally got a proper first look at this experience… Ring Fit Adventure!

Ring Fit Adventure introduces a brand new way to get active for Nintendo Switch in an adventure game like no other. In the main story mode, you’ll be travelling through different worlds and fighting many enemies to eventually go head to head against the muscular bodybuilding dragon, Drago.

The accessories will allow the JoyCon to transfer all your movements directly into the game. Jogging on the spot with the special strap attached to your thigh will tell your character to move forwards, whereas the RingCon will allow you to jump, performs power attacks, check your heart rate and so much more.

Outside of adventure mode, you can also play a range of different minigames or even take on a set of different workouts. There’s also a quiet mode that will alter your experience so you do not disturb anyone at night.

Check out the in depth trailer below, and the press release after the break! Ring Fit Adventure will launch on the 18th October 2019, the price has yet to be announced.

REVIEW – Dragon Quest Builders 2

Just because you have defeated a leader filled with an immense dedication to destruction doesn’t necessarily mean its malice won’t linger. Evil has its way of sticking around, like that stubborn, yet questionable, stain on an old dish rag. Luckily, wherever there is hope, there will always be a potential for the creation of a delightful, new world, even if you have to build it up block by block.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 follows the quest of three unlikely friends to rid the world of its destructive ways, and return the passion of building back to the residents that had it squished from by a horrid cult. Does this RPG building sequel have a sturdy foundation to sit on, or does it crumble more than poorly mixed concrete? Find out in our review, after the break…

…then, morning comes…

REVIEW – VA-11 Hall-A

In the dystopian future of the year 207X, corrupt corporations govern the world, oppressing the populace with nanomachines and a personal armed force known as the White Knights. Law is to be obeyed and nothing seems to be done to correct the wrongdoings forced upon everyone. But this is not the story being told, this is a story of Jill Stingray, bartender at the VA-11 Hall-A bar in downtown Glitch City, and the customers she has to serve. On a daily basis she has to deal with the often petty whims of the clientele, most times humouring them as they spill their life stories one drink at a time. It’s time to mix drinks and change lives.
