Splatoon 3: Side Order – Review

Released back in 2022, Splatoon 3 was the latest entry in Nintendo’s very successful competitive shooter series. Despite some hiccups with its multiplayer and inconsistent servers, it was the game that gave me a long-term interest in the series. More than a year later, the hotly anticipated expansion has arrived to give us even more. […]

Shiren the Wanderer: The Mystery Dungeon of Serpentcoil Island – Review

You’ve most likely heard of the Mystery Dungeon series through its various crossovers over the years with the likes of Pokemon, Etrian Odyssey, and Final Fantasy.

It’s a genius idea that could become something great with the right vision. While Golfie is still in early access and might change, the current version fundamentally misses what makes minigolf fun. Tee Time […]

Shiren the Wanderer: The Tower of Fortune and the Dice of Fate – Review

I’ve always been a fan of the Roguelike genre. Games like Dead Cells still maintain a high amount of accumulated hours played on my Nintendo Switch. These titles are inherently repetitive, but they still maintain a semblance of progression. It wasn’t until last year that I’d dive into the Mystery Dungeon sub-genre and found that I loved it. So when I saw the Nintendo Direct that […]
