NS Review – Splatoon 2 Global Testfire (Switch)

This past weekend played host to the first (of possibly many) Splatoon 2 Global Testfire. We almost all got in at least a few matches on it, but what did we all think of this sequel to the phenomenally popular Wii U title? WES: I feel like I pretty much exhausted the original Splatoon, not … Continue reading

NS Review – Fire Emblem: Heroes (mobile)

After the arguable negativity of my previous article, I thought I would follow with this little number. Let’s be clear, right here and now, I love Fire Emblem: Heroes. I must admit that I have not been a fan of Nintendo’s mobile output until now. Miitomo suffered greatly from just not being quite enough to … Continue reading

NintenRant VI: The Nintendo Switch

THOUGHTS CONTAINED IN THIS ARTICLE ARE MY OWN AND DO NOT REFLECT THOSE OF NINTENDO SCENE OR ITS OTHER WRITERS. Okay, I’ve been storing vitriol on this issue for a while. But, every time I’ve reached a “right, that’s it!” moment and considered putting hand to keyboard about it, something has come about to dissipate … Continue reading
