Maybe it's because of my age, but Crimzon Clover: World Explosion is one of the non-Ring Fit games where I felt exhausted after a session. It's surprisingly demanding if you're not used to these kinds of space shooters. I can see why the hardcore fans eat this game up, and it's a very well designed game. It's just not something I'd recommend for relaxing after a tough day at work.

I put about 280 hours into Generations Ultimate and was playing it even up to the time this review goes live, but for mostly lack-of-PC reasons I never got into World. Monster Hunter Rise has enough content that I feel like I'll be able to go all the way with it, and be able to take on the new hunts as they're delivered. Even those who are just looking for a good action game, and have no history with the series, should jump in. If nothing else, I could use some help with Rathalos.

My final typo count was only in the single digits. There's two things I can credit for this: Wintertide Miracles did get localized previously, and with the release schedule slowing down from the "six launches in ten months" pace of 2020, it does allow more time for squashing editing bugs. Last week's announcements that the next otome from Aksys that's coming out won't be until "fall 2021" is raising my hopes for the editors when that wave comes crashing in.

8 / 10.0 - Gnosia
Mar 6, 2021

Gnosia is a game that's going to test your deduction skills, imagination, and ability to lie like a cheap rug. It's a game that I will definitely keep around if I want to knock off a quick loop on a break, or even if I need to warm up for the next time I have tasks to do on stream. Don't cold sleep on it.

5.5 / 10.0 - Taxi Chaos
Mar 3, 2021

In a city the size of New York, you'd think there'd be two things: a massive city and all kinds of people. Taxi Chaos doesn't really have either at the end of the day, and it leads to a barely-above-average experience as a result. I suppose you could rip through a podcast backlog just driving around the city, but if I wanted to do that there's plenty of options for open world driving on Switch as it stands.

A lot of people missed Tadpole Treble the first time around, but it's definitely worth doubling back to now that it's been rescued and brought to Switch. There will be moments of frustration (thanks, piranha) but I spent more time smiling and bouncing to the music than I have in most of the games I've played in the last year.

4 / 10.0 - Wrestling Empire
Jan 18, 2021

However, Wrestling Empire isn't quite "so bad it's good" territory, nor is it the worst. It's basically the small indie wrestling company bringing in a guy with TV exposure to sell tickets. And with more competition coming in the short and hopefully longer terms for Switch wrestling games, it'll be one of those "Oh yeah, that happened" games in short order.

7 / 10.0 - BIT.TRIP RUNNER
Dec 18, 2020

And honestly, what Runner has done now is made me look forward to the Switch port of Runner 2 coming next year, because I prefer its art style and it has checkpoints. Even if they are optional. Runner's still my favorite of the original BIT.TRIP series but if you pick up Runner you get a big discount on the other ones so it may be better to explore those instead.

The Space Invaders Forever might keep me playing forever between grabbing everything in the Arkanoid game and trying to boost my scores in Extreme. But it's impossible to ignore what's been left out to try and get people to shell out for a physical game: you can't really call it "Forever" when the oldest game of the bunch debuted after I graduated from university. Keep an eye out for updates, but as for what's available in December 2020? Wait.

If you've got any doubts about visual novels in general, Root Double isn't the best starting point on Switch. The structure is going to be intimidating at first, and the environment is as oppressive as the design suggests. But if you've gone and turned a Switch Lite into a visual novel reader, Root Double will keep you up late at night trying to get to that next ending.
