It’s official. It’s real. They actually went ahead and released a trailer, at long last.
I, along with probably most of you, have been absolutely baffled as to why a trailer wasn’t shown off at TGS last month, but it’s here now and it looks amazing.
Oddly though, the footage all comes from the same demo they previewed, which raises the question of; “How much of this game have they actually built..?”.  Continue reading Yokai Watch 4 finally has an official trailer!

Why is no one talking about Child of Light 2 getting announced?

child of light title

Child of Light, one of my favourite games to release in the past decade, and one of the few games to take advantage of the sorely underused UbiArts engine, was announced to be coming to Switch recently.
And by recently, I mean two months ago, and by coming to Switch, I mean it’s out in a week.

But that’s not what we’re here to talk about! I’m sure you’ve seen it in the title at this point, but have a look at this here tweet from a Ubisoft dev: Continue reading Why is no one talking about Child of Light 2 getting announced?

The World Ends With You on Switch has tweaked combat and it’s a little bit concerning

twewy controls title

While I’m tremendously excited to be able to play this game again on a modern console, the lack of a second screen is leading to some questionable, but ultimately understandable decisions with this port.
In the original DS game, enemy encounters were carried out over both screens, with each screen acting as a different “dimension” as such.  Continue reading The World Ends With You on Switch has tweaked combat and it’s a little bit concerning

I bought a whole bunch of old Digimon cards

Oh, what have I done. I’ve poked my collectors nerve and started looking into the original Digimon cards.
There I was, kicked back in my chair, enjoying a morning coffee when I’m struck with this urge, this strong nostalgic urge to have a look at my old Digimon cards. And have a look I did, but this doesn’t end there, because from here… I found myself typing the words every collector both loves and fears into the Google search bar… “ebay”Continue reading I bought a whole bunch of old Digimon cards

PSA: Dragon ball FighterZ is out now on Switch and it’s amazing

fighterZ launch title

It’s no secret that I’ve been.. Well, hella hyped for this game. And yes, I was at the store for 9am this morning like the idiot I am, laughing as I grab the only copy in stock (looks like retail copies may be a little hard to come by).
But anyway, now that I’ve got it, and have played it all day, what do I think of it?  Continue reading PSA: Dragon ball FighterZ is out now on Switch and it’s amazing

Yokai Watch 4 is a much bigger game than I expected

Level 5 arrived at Tokyo Game Show (or TGS for short) with an arm-load of hotly anticipated games this week, and somehow, have managed to disappoint no one.
As a company, they seem to operate under similar ideology to Nintendo, wherein they take their time developing quality, fun, original games.
It’s fantastic, and unfortunately somewhat of an oddity in today’s market.  Continue reading Yokai Watch 4 is a much bigger game than I expected

A look at combat in Yokai Watch 4

We’ve known for some time now that Yokai Watch 4 would be a Nintendo Switch title, but we’ve yet to see any actual gameplay, and I am getting impatient.
I know it takes time to make a quality game, and I 100% want them to take their time on it, I’m just excited to see it play.

Today though, we get this; a single screenshot. Continue reading A look at combat in Yokai Watch 4
