NS Review – DOOM (Switch)

There have been some incredibly left-field announcements for the Switch since it’s release in March, almost all of which have been well-received on reveal, if not on release. DOOM, originally released on X-Box One and PlayStation 4 last year, received incredibly positive reviews and went on to win and be nominated for multiple game industry … Continue reading

NS Review – Earth Atlantis (Switch)

This year has been a phenomenal year for the Switch, as I’m sure has been said many times before by just as many people. This success and the incredible library that the console now has can be at least partly attributed to the sheer amount of indie support that it has received. There has been … Continue reading

NS Review – Super Mario Odyssey (Switch)

The Nintendo Switch launched in March this year, and it has had an incredible year so far, but it’s hard to deny that it did feel like something was missing. Obviously, when Nintendo has a new console, it isn’t long until a new Mario title comes to it, and the Switch was missing it’s outing … Continue reading

NS Review – Fire Emblem Warriors (Switch)

I was a huge fan of Hyrule Warriors; the unusual match-up of the Warriors formula with the Zelda aesthetic and characters worked tremendously well, especially in terms of the sheer amount of content the game provided and how the Zelda mechanics altered the tried and tested Warriors franchise in interesting ways. When Nintendo announced yet … Continue reading

NS Review – Layton’s Mystery Journey: Katrielle and the Millionaires’ Conspiracy (3DS)

The Professor Layton games began in 2007, with the Curious Village on Nintendo DS. These games became an immediate success owing to their widespread appeal of being essentially puzzle games, however with the twist of having an over-arching narrative and a mystery to solve. Unlike their estranged cousins, the Ace Attorney games, the focus was … Continue reading

NS Review – Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions (3DS)

I will happily admit that I was a huge fan of the GameBoy Advance; it had a few stellar games, but sadly wasn’t quite up to the calibre of other Nintendo platforms in terms of an overall game roster. One of the huge breakthrough hits on the console in my opinion though was Mario & … Continue reading

NS Review – FIFA 18 (Switch)

Realistic sports games are hardly a niche genre. The FIFA and Madden NFL series share at least 200 million sales between them. However, when it comes to Nintendo consoles, the idea of ‘niche’ makes more sense. For one reason or another – and particularly in more recent years – the genre hasn’t made an impact … Continue reading
