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?
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’m dying. Nintendo, how have you been sitting on this many announcements?! What the heck this is too much to take. It feels like Christmas.
I won’t touch on everything here, because freakin’ heck there is a lot, but I’ll go through the highlights that excited me most. Continue reading That Nintendo Direct felt like an E3 conference, holy smokes
UPDATE: Due to a large earthquake in the northern Hokkaido region of Japan, the direct has been postponed until further notice.

Nintendo just officially announced a Direct, scheduled for tomorrow at 3pm PT, or 11pm in the UK. Weird, it’s not usually on so late.
But hold up, it’s set to feature a full thirty five minutes of information. Thirty five!
It’s like E3 all over again. Really makes you appreciate these more frequent showings, things feel like a year-round celebration. Continue reading UPDATE: Postponed until further notice. Nintendo Direct coming tomorrow!
Aragami, the clever stealth game by “Merge Games” is confirmed to be getting a Switch release this fall. Neat!
The package includes the full base game, the “Nightfall” expansion, and the “Assassins Mask” DLC. Sweet.
Third party support for the Switch has been nothing but fantastic lately, and it’s showing no signs of letting up, I love it! I’ll be checking this one out for sure.

It’s not hard to find people complaining about Nintendo porting too many Wii U games to Switch. They see it as a waste of time, they feel as if these ports are taking the places of what could have been exciting new games.
This, of course, is absolutely not the case. A port is so much easier than a full game, it’s laughable. The amount of planning, conceptualising, producing, testing, that goes into a full game is huge. Continue reading There are still so many Wii U ports I want to happen
It’s not often that a game grabs me quite like Hollow Knight has. It’s beautifully crafted world, filled to the absolute brim with rich characters and near endless secrets to discover, has me coming back time and time again.
Nearly ten hours after completing the main objective, and I’m still discovering at a rampant pace, with a large enough backlog of unfinished quests to see that this game isn’t going to let me go any time soon.
