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 – 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 – 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 – 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

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. Technically she wasn’t absent, but the player didn’t control Samus, nor should she have been … Continue reading

NS Review – Splatoon 2 (Switch)

In this article I’ll be covering the multiplayer modes of Splatoon 2, for the single player Hero Mode, please see my Hands-On Preview here. A long way we’ve swum since the starting days of a weird £20 barebones shooter on an underappreciated console- a strange ink-splattering adventure that exploded in popularity, boosting Wii U sales … Continue reading
