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.

NS Preview: Metroid: Samus Returns

This year’s E3 event proved to be quite a success for Samus Aran. With two games announced – one for each of Nintendo’s premier consoles – she is back in the fold after her absence from Metroid Prime: Federation Force.

NS Review – Kirby’s Blowout Blast (3DS)

I can’t say that I’m the biggest fan of Kirby and the various games they star in; I mean, I played a lot of Kirby and the Amazing Mirror, but I couldn’t shake the overwhelming impression of the games being a little too easy for me. I understand that these games are aimed at far … Continue reading
