Nintendo Switch: After the Hype-Storm Thoughts

It has been nearly three weeks since the announcement of the Nintendo Switch, and now that the initial shock has been tamed, it may be safer to make observations. When the console was revealed, there were two kinds of people; the ones that whole-heartedly supported the changes and the ones that instantly shunned the idea down for various reasons. The majority of people, myself included, seem to have fallen into the former. Times have changed since then, however, and now taking a step back is necessary. The console appears to…

It was a Breath of Fresh Air Ride

When people think of Nintendo racing games, there’s no doubt that Mario Kart comes to mind, and maybe even F-Zero for older fans. But there’s another game that often gets forgotten, buried underneath the discussion. That game is Kirby Air Ride, and it’s quite different from anything else. This game came out on the Nintendo GameCube way back in 2003, and was designed by none other than Masahiro Sakurai himself, the man behind the Super Smash Bros. series as well as Kid Icarus: Uprising, and original creator of the Kirby character. This game may have fallen by the wayside at the time of its release, but to those…

15 Years of Super Monkey Ball

Roll around on the ground if you’ve heard of Super Monkey Ball. You probably aren’t rolling on the floor right now, since it is somewhat likely you haven’t heard of this videogame, and you’ll look rather conspicuous if someone sees you rolling on the floor next to your computer. What you may not expect however, is that a monkey within a hollow sphere rolling through mazes isn’t conspicuous at all; some may even go so far as to say it can be quite cute. So why bring up a game…

Vive la Virtual Reality!

Virtual reality is slowly becoming available in households across the globe. As it stands, there are currently three big contenders in the competition for VR dominance: Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PSVR. However, none of these come cheap, and content is absurdly limited to this date. That said, one must be absolutely certain when deciding whether or not to adopt a VR headset, but fear not – I have taken the plunge for you and have come to a decisive conclusion on whether or not VR is worthy of the…

Top 3 Reasons To Try Super Smash Bros.

     For those of you who don’t know, Super Smash Bros. is a fighting/party game series published by Nintendo, in which the likes of Mario, Pikachu, Link, Kirby, and many of Nintendo’s other intellectual properties get the opportunity to engage in fierce, and at times comical, battles. However, this isn’t your typical fighting game. No. 1: The Mechanics      Whether you’re a veteran competitive Melee player, or just casually played Brawl on your friend’s Wii that one time, one thing remains constant across all the Smash games; characters don’t have health bars, but instead can…

Could This Be the Paragon of MOBAs?

  A new third-person MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) is currently in the works for both PS4 and PC, and I was lucky enough to get my eager hands on an early access Founder’s Pack. The game in question is none other than Epic Games’ Paragon. Epic Games is a gloriously beloved company responsible for the creation of Unreal Engine, a software used to create hyper realistic-looking games. They have also produced various popular games such as Gears of War, Unreal Tournament, and Infinity Blade. All that said, there is…
