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

Review – Octopath Traveler Demo (Switch)

This review was originally posted on reuthegamer.com on 21st September 2017. Anyone who knows me will know that I am rather a large fan of the JRPG genre, in fact, I normally will drop pretty much any other game I happen to be playing to pick one up. Furthermore, in that genre, I consider Bravely … Continue reading

NS Review – Pokkén Tournament DX (Switch)

So far, 2017 has been a phenomenal year for Nintendo but most importantly the Switch. We have seen both new titles gracing the new hybrid and a few fantastic Wii U titles being brought over to the Switch. Needless to say, given the arguable lack of success of Nintendo’s asymmetric gameplay console, giving some of … Continue reading

NS Review – Metroid: Samus Returns (3DS)

There aren’t many games with a title more apropos than Samus Returns. After a long absence since the polarising Metroid: Other M and a controversial spin-off game last year, the future of Samus Aran had been in serious doubt. At E3 this year, all doubt was thrown out the window as two Metroid titles were announced. The first … Continue reading

Following on from the success of the Nintendo Classic NES Mini, rumours began to circulate about the possibility of a successor.

NS Review – Slime-san (Switch)

I’m enjoying the Switch eShop at the moment. There’s now just under 100 titles on there to choose from and it keeps going from strength to strength. Not only are all of the big releases launching on there as well as physical, but also there has been a tremendous amount of high quality indie titles … Continue reading
