NintyBuzz’s E3 2021 Stream with Prizes Announced

By |June 11th, 2021|E3 2021, WIN!|

With only a few days until Nintendo finally treats us with news on their upcoming titles, we have decided to host a special stream where we play some games, watch the event, discuss the news, and give out some prizes!

Starting Tuesday 15th June from 4pm BST, I’ll be kicking off the stream with some Animal Crossing New Horizons. During this first hour, I’ll be discussing some of our hopes and dreams for Nintendo’s big event all while fixing up my long neglected island. Following this, we will be hosting the official Nintendo E3 2021 Direct along with my reactions to all the news and announcements. Viewers will then be invited to join me in some games for the remaining couple of hours where we can digest what we just saw, play some games, and even hand out some prizes.

I have a total of three £25 Nintendo eShop Vouchers to hand out. Two will be offered to two lucky people at random who follow the instructions on the widget below with the final voucher going to a random viewer who participates in any games following the Nintendo Direct… as they say, you gotta be in it to win it!

REVIEW – Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir & The Girl Who Stands Behind

By |May 28th, 2021|Famicom Detective Club, Nintendo, Nintendo Switch, NintyBuzz, Review|

Somewhere around 33 years ago, renowned creator of the Game Boy, Gunpei Yokoi, approached Yoshio Sakamoto, best known for his work with the Metroid franchise, to create a game with only a title as a suggestion. The title was “Famicom Shōnen Tanteidan” (Famicom Youth Detective Club) and it was to be developed for the Famicom Disk System exclusively in Japan. Drawing inspiration from horror films by Dario Argenta and 1983’s The Portopia Serial Murder Case, the project eventually manifested into two titles under the Famicom Detective Club banner; The Missing Heir and The Girl Who Stands Behind. Now they’ve been remade especially for the Nintendo Switch by esteemed visual novel studio Mages and localised officially into English for the first time. Do they hold up with the times, or fall behind their contemporary successors?

REVIEW – New Pokémon Snap

By |May 7th, 2021|Nintendo Switch, Pokémon, Review|

It has been twenty-two years since HAL Laboratory and Pax Softnica developed Pokémon Snap for the Nintendo 64 and, for the longest time, Pokémon fans like myself have wanted to see a new addition to the series. But as the years went on, I began accepting it as a bit of a pipe dream. So when New Pokémon Snap was announced back in June 2020, it came as a bit of a shock! Did they actually do it? Are they really making Pokémon Snap 2?

Please read my review below to find out whether its successor captured my excitement, or was I left feeling a bit negative.

REVIEW – Harvest Moon: One World

By |April 5th, 2021|Nintendo, Nintendo Switch, Review|

As of late, farming simulation games seem to have been increasing in popularity, or have they always been popular and I’ve only just realised this? Either way, it is a bit odd that some gamers, myself included, crave the sort of game that simulates the hard work of farming. I suppose when you get to see your efforts grow to fruition fairly quickly without the actual physical input, farming can be pretty fun, even for the laziest individual… why are you staring at me?

Harvest Moon: One World is yet another entry into the genre. Not only that, but it is also the first new game in the series (not to be confused with Story of Seasons) for quite some time. Does the title bear the fruits of Natsume’s labour, or does barn cleanup sound more appetising? Find out in our review, after the break!
