7.5 / 10.0 - The Red Lantern
Oct 22, 2020

The main character, played by Ashly Burch, is incredibly relatable and is yet another great role for the esteemed voice actress. I got my first successful run after about three hours of playtime, which depending on what kind of player you are could be seen as a good thing or a bad thing, though personally it felt a tad too short to me. Overall The Red Lantern is worth your time if you have an interest in the outdoors, a lust for adventure in the unknown, or just want to pet some fluffy sled dogs.

In a world where games like Planet Coaster exist as a more modern take on the exact same formula with many of the same features, I don't even know if nostalgia is a justifiable position on this one. If all you're really interested in is the idea of a portable park management sim this one is still a pretty alright entry into the genre, but it definitely still feels and looks like a game that came out in 2004. Add to that the clunky gamepad controls and I can say for sure that if you're dead set on buying Roller Coaster Tycoon 3, the Switch is probably not the place to do it.

10 / 10.0 - Hades
Sep 24, 2020

I am not done putting hours into Hades, not by a long shot, and as somebody who is not usually a fan of this genre I really do think that says something. Add to this yet another incredible soundtrack for Supergiant's catalogue and some of the best character designs these mythological figures have ever seen, and Hades is seriously a game that you should not miss. If you like the genre, this is an absolute must buy, and if you don't it may still be worth it to give Hades a look.

9.5 / 10.0 - Avicii Invector
Sep 8, 2020

If you like his music or just like rhythm games in general AVICII Invector is a game you absolutely should check out on the Switch.

7.5 / 10.0 - No Straight Roads
Aug 29, 2020

Its soundtrack is potentially one of my favorites of the year, the writing is genuinely funny, and the character and boss designs are honestly top notch, but this is unfortunately not enough to counteract the many problems I have with how the gameplay itself pans out. There is a diamond trapped within this rock, and I truly hope the team at Metronomilk is able to polish it to the full potential that is so clearly there. For now, though, its problems are too hard for me to ignore and make what could be a great game into a game that's just alright.

Well, except David, he'd fit in Greenvale pretty well. If you like the first Deadly Premonition you likely already know what you want and what you're getting into, and you'll likely be pretty happy with this sequel. Your everyday average player should probably weigh how much jank they're willing to put up with before giving this game a shot, though.

6 / 10.0 - Blair Witch
Jun 30, 2020

In the end, the story ends up being incredibly cliche and uninteresting, the setting is not all that fun or even all that frightening to walk around in, and the graphical downgrade is just another unfortunate brick in the wall that kept me from really enjoying my time with the game. If these things don't sound like deal breakers to you, Blair Witch may still be worth your time to at least try out. Even then I don't think I'd recommend the Switch be where you do so.

Overall Burnout Paradise Remastered is a solid game and an even more solid Switch port. If you like driving games and that’s all you really need, driving in Burnout feels really good regardless of what kind of car you’re using (my personal favorite was speed types). Those looking for a bit more than just the endless grind of races and stunts might still find themselves having fun for at least a couple hours, and even though you don’t actually interact with it at all Paradise City is still an interesting and varied setting to roll around in. If that sounds like your thing I can happily recommend this game on the Switch.

Certain events will or will not trigger during a playthrough, meaning that sometimes you may see things on a replay you didn't see before, giving it a high amount of replayability. The game also includes a museum-like behind the scenes feature that can be unlocked after you've beaten it for the first time, something I wish more games would do. I was pleasantly surprised by Infliction, and if you like horror games I think you will be, too.

7.5 / 10.0 - House Flipper
Jun 12, 2020

Overall House Flipper is a great game to kill time with, and also the perfect game if you find that you need to be able to shut your brain off and just do something for a little while. It’s not perfect and it is definitely not for everybody, especially if you’re actually in the market for something more exciting, but those who enjoy sitting down to slam out a mundane task should strongly consider this game on Switch. While some of the decisions they made in terms of controls were a bit strange to me, I eventually got used to them and found myself enjoying the process just as much as I did on PC. So get in there and paint those rooms the ugliest colors you can find, and put down a chair for good measure, House Flipper is the place to be if you’re just looking to relax.
