REVIEW – Super Mario Maker 2

It’s likely that, when Nintendo first released Super Mario for the NES back in 1985, they would’ve never imagined that they would launch a game that allow players to create their own levels… with a sequel to boot! Builder Mario is back, this time tagged along with Builder Luigi in Super Mario Maker 2 for Nintendo Switch.

Does Super Mario Maker 2 provide a canvas for a masterpiece, or is it more like a disasterpiece? Find out in our review, after the break.

Starbomb Delivers The Most Musically-Satisfying Video Game Comedy Album Yet

Warning: this post contains strong language, as does the album being discussed and reviewed.

For the better part of this decade, Game Grumps Arin Hanson and Dan Avidan have been jamming out together with Dan’s Ninja Sex Party bandmate Brian Wecht to deliver The Lonely Island of video games.

Dick jokes about Kirby and spoofing how much Luigi sucks became normal in the gaming community after the release of the first, self-titled, album in 2013. A sequel in the form of 2014’s “Player Select” swiftly followed the original release’s popularity, and for five years since then, let’s play viewers, comedy music fans and gamers have been wondering when the Triforce would be completed.

REVIEW – Nintendo Labo VR Kit

With the stress of climate change, ‘fake news’ and, worst of all, dissertations, sometimes it’s pretty nice to just escape reality for a lil’ while.

Review: Yoshi’s Crafted World Is Mostly Well-Crafted

It’s somewhat weird to think it, but Yoshi himself has had more consistent releases on Nintendo platforms in the past decade than more prominent leading stars, including Samus Aran, Fox McCloud and even Donkey Kong.

Despite Yoshi’s original sidekick status, the green dinosaur sells, resulting in the most recent title: Yoshi’s Crafted World for the Nintendo Switch. Developed by Good Feel, this game expands upon the idea of an aesthetic of realistic materials. More so than Kirby’s Epic Yarn and Yoshi’s Woolly World before it, Yoshi’s Crafted World shows off its visual creativity in spades while delivering on the mostly expected 2D platforming formula we’ve come to expect from the character.

REVIEW – Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Marvel’s Cinematic Universe may have been the most ambitious crossover once upon a time, but I believe Super Smash Bros. Ultimate now takes the title for itself. The popular party fighting game is back once again, and this time everyone is here!

Is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as strong as Incineroars ‘wrastling’, or as weak as Waluigi’s chances are to become a playable fighter? Find out in our review, after the break!

REVIEW – Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee

It all started in Japan in 1996 (’99 in the UK). That was the first time gamers first set foot in the Kanto region, the first time they collected Pokémon, the first time they caught a Magikarp… with a Master Ball. That’s when it all started, this Pokémon fever, and gamers around the world just couldn’t get enough. Fast forward a good 22 years, and it’s time to relive those fabled memories, as well as create new ones for a new generation in Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee.

Is Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee an evolution you’ve always dreamed of, or is it not very effective? Find out in our review, after the break!
