Unite to the Occasion; Pokémon UNITE, One Month Later

It’s been about a month now since Pokémon UNITE hit the Switch, with the mobile release coming up in September, and it’s about time I gathered my thoughts on the title. Pokémon’s take on the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (better known as MOBA) genre certainly has a lot going for it, with hundreds of Pokémon to choose from for potential playable candidates which makes the whole thing very appealing. But through all that, some major problems occur which can make or break the experience with alarming regularity. Join us after the break as we discuss some issues and ways to potentially address them.

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 – Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

Imagine a world where humans and monsters can live together in harmony. That is the way of the rider and, as a new initiate, your work may be cut out for you as mysterious pits begin to open up, monsters become enraged, and Rathalos from around the world flee beyond the horizon.

Does Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin have what it takes to ride on, or is it less gnarly than that time Navirou ran out of doughnuts? Find out in our review after the break!

Ride On, Buddy!

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 – New Pokémon Snap

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

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!

Super Bomberman R Online Blasts Onto Nintendo Switch Soon

Battle Royales have been all the rage of recent times, for better and for worse. Late last year, Konami brought the world of Bomberman into the genre exclusively for Google Stadia, allowing up to 64 players online to duke it out with some highly explosive materials. Today, Konami announced that the Super Bomberman R Online will be heading its way to PC and consoles, including the Nintendo Switch, due to ‘the success of its initial launch on Stadia’. The company also went on to announce that the title will support cross-platform play, meaning anyone can play together no matter which console they play on.

Other than a release window of this year not much else has been announced. Either way, I myself am pretty excited, especially after the blast I used to have with Super Bomberman R!
