Bayonetta 2 is a perfect choice to port over to the Nintendo Switch. The eclectic action and story is a treat on its own, but it's amazing how great it looks and plays when in handheld mode.

if you loved the first Cyber Sleuth then you'll really enjoy Hacker's Memory. The story is simple and gives a new perspective to this world, but if you didn't play the first title you may be lost when a particular character shows up.

10 / 10.0 - Super Mario Odyssey
Oct 30, 2017

The Nintendo Switch title has slick controls, amazing visuals and a charm (there's that word again) that I haven't come across before. The story is simple but supplemented with a large cast of new characters and worlds that expand the Mario Universe in a way that, hopefully, Nintendo can expand on for years to come. It's accessible for younger players and challenging enough for veterans.

Fire Emblem Warriors is more than just your typical hack-slash, button-mashing affair. While the action and over-the-top combos are highly entertaining, the real joys of this game are the Fire Emblem mechanics and the strategy that goes along with it.

Anyone looking for their Metroid fix should look no further than Samus Returns. It's a great example of why this franchise has been around for almost 30 years with amazing environments and awesome gameplay.

Overall, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is an impressive port for fighting game and Street Fighter fans. This addition to the Nintendo Switch library is much-needed and proves that the Switch can handle the rigors of a fighting game, especially in portable mode. It's going to be great to get more fighting games in the future on this platform.

While the Nintendo Switch is getting a lot of attention, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia is a great reminder that the 3DS can still deliver great games. This is the first must-own 3DS title of 2017.

Overall, Has-Been Heroes is a very enjoyable experience, despite the difficulty level. While I wouldn't recommend this game for younger gamers as they will probably get too frustrated, this is definitely something players with patience can really sink hours and hours into.
