REVIEW – SNK VS. CAPCOM: The Match of the Millennium

Originally released in 1999 on the obscure and short-lived NeoGeo Pocket Colour, SNK vs. Capcom: The Match of the Millennium was the first crossover title between the legendary companies, and it is wonderful to see that the game will be preserved and revived for the incomparably wider audience the Switch affords. The epic titling may contrast with its cutesy style, but the packed-to-the-brim crossover content and overall quality of the game do it justice!

Review: Glyph

Released earlier this year, Glyph is a unique take on puzzle-platformers. The developer has created this game with the mantra “Easy to learn, but hard to master”. Albeit a very crowded and competitive genre, read our review to find out what we think of Bolverk Games’ debut on the Nintendo Switch.

REVIEW – Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury

The Sprixie Kingdom has gotten a tad catty as the realm has been hit with a double whammy of feline proportions. Originally launching eight years ago in 2013 for the Nintendo Wii U, this Super Mario 3D Land sequel (kind of) swipes its way onto Nintendo Switch, this time with an extra standalone adventure in Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

Will you rescue the Sprixie Princesses or try to cool the fury of Bowser’s rage first? Take your pick, ready your claws, and check out our review of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury after the break!

Let’s-a Go!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

REVIEW – Nexomon: Extinction

Since its release, Nexomon: Extinction has had some Quality of Life updates. This review is based from version 1.1.0 on the Nintendo Switch.

LimeTurtle Inc first formed in 2014 and Nexomon: One, a mobile only title, was their first full venture once partnering with the original team behind a game known as “Micromon”. Since then, the team has been working hard for their first full console release with Nexomon: Extinction. 

Nexomon Extinction is, in the words of the developer themselves, “a return to classic monster-catching” and it is a fine example of doing what it says on the tin. As one of many orphans residing at a small Orphanage, you begin your journey in dramatic fashion which leads to you picking one of nine Nexomon as your starter. Although this may sound like a daunting decision early on, you can catch every single starter Nexomon in the wild, albeit they are very rare and thus hard to find. As a young Tamer, you set out on an adventure together with your friends with the aim of climbing the ranks of The Guild – a well-respected organisation to protect the world from any threat and to save humanity from the potential brink of extinction. Find out what we thought in our review!

Review – Writhe

It’s tough to stand out in the free-for-all of Nintendo’s eShop. Despite this, there can be hidden gems buried in the rubble that need dusting off so they can gleam in the spotlight! Writhe might not be the game to catch your eye, but the worth is evident under closer examination. I’m not saying it’s a diamond, but perhaps a shard of brilliant-green peridot! The game is set in a dystopian Bangkok, where giant, mutated Sago Worms have gone rogue and you are a lone ‘Exterminator’ fending off the hoard. Writhe is a classic arcade FPS experience and the tiny development team at Mission Ctrl Studios do their best to pay homage to a simpler time.

REVIEW – Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World hit cinemas in August 2010 to general acclaim, but fairly middling box office performance. It was widely praised for its editing and adaptation of the comics by Canadian comic artist Bryan Lee O’Malley, who originally wrote the series between 2004 and 2010. Naturally, a video game tie-in was in order, seeing as games already influenced the series, and Ubisoft was tasked with its creation. Normally, movie licensed games have a reputation for being cheaply made, quick and dirty cash grabs to capitalise on a movie’s launch period, but Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: The Game (what a mouthful) instead gained a cult following for being the exact opposite. It ended up being a love letter to the comics as well as to games in general, bearing little in common with the movie other than the source material. Unfortunately it got delisted from Playstation Network and Xbox Live digital storefronts in 2014, due to presumed license expiry from Universal Studios, but it has now been given a second chance in 2021.

Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

REVIEW – Touhou Luna Nights

The enigmatic Touhou Project series of bullet hell shoot-em-ups is either one you are a hardcore fan of or one you simply haven’t even heard of in the slightest. It has a very long history, dating back to 1996 as an independently developed game for NEC’s PC-98 series of personal computers popular in Japan throughout the 90’s. It has grown significantly since then, of course, amassing what can amount to a major corporate brand in terms of recognition (in Japan), yet is still independently operated by the sole creator, ZUN. As a result, various fan-created media has been made, from comics to music and, as we are here to discuss with this review, games. Touhou Luna Nights is one such game, one of the few that has made its way to Switch, and it is a sight to behold.
