NS Review – Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Switch)

It’s absolutely no secret that I am a huge fan of JRPGs. When the original Xenoblade Chronicles released on Wii, and later on 3DS, I billed it as my favourite games of those years on their prospective consoles. The beautiful worlds, fantastic characters, and wonderful combat system sold me from almost the moment I started … Continue reading

NS Review – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Switch)

Following from the successful launch of DOOM on Switch, it stands to reason that Bethesda would continue the ball rolling with bringing more of its extensive backlog of incredible and critically acclaimed games to the portable wonder. So, and as the end result of possibly the worst attempted cover up in recent gaming history, when … Continue reading

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.

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 – 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

Retro, in all of it’s senses, is having a bit of a revival in recent times. What with the rise of indie developers taking retro styles or gameplay as centre stage in their games and the success of the Nintendo Classic NES Mini, it’s a good time to be old school. Now, the highly anticipated … Continue reading
