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?

REVIEW – Daemon X Machina

What do you get when you combine high-tech mechs with rogue AI hellbent on destroying all of humanity? A delicious shooter with a plentiful serving of high-octane action called Daemon X Machina, that’s what!

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.

REVIEW – Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Unlike many other Nintendo fans around me, the popular turn-based strategy series, Fire Emblem, has been one that has escaped me over the years. Due to my inexperience with the franchise, I was hesitant to take on this review. But after watching some trailers and seeing the excitement build within the Nintendo community, I was curious to see what Three Houses had to offer. What follows is a review of Fire Emblem: Three Houses played on classic difficulty.

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.
