While the concept of an open world beat 'em up set in high-school sounds interesting, the way it was executed is far from perfect. Furthermore, the entire world feels meaningless, as there is no way to easily tell what time your classes begin, and where they are. It is also difficult to know where each building is in the world because The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa lacks a map/compass feature. If you are looking for a unique beat 'em up, and are willing to manage it's user experience issues, then this is a perfect game for you.

7.5 / 10.0 - APE OUT
Apr 17, 2019

While it can be fun to run around smashing stuff and listening to a cool soundtrack, Ape Out is a bit of a one-trick pony. When you boil it down, it's a maze runner with a smash-the-bad-guys element. Don't get me wrong—the theme may be simple, but the game is fun to play. It's challenging enough to keep you entertained for several hours so go let your inner monkey run wild for a while.

7 / 10.0 - Metagal
Apr 17, 2019

Metagal is a fun platformer. It could do with more content, but what's there is an enjoyable ride with incentive to replay. At $4.99, it's a bargain that's worth checking out if you're a platforming enthusiast or Mega Man fan looking for a little action on the side.

7 / 10.0 - I Wanna Fly
Apr 16, 2019

And at its price point and addictive nature, it's an entirely enjoyable addition to your Switch as a time waster, or if you simply feel the need to yell profanity at your console when you mess up one. Lousy. Flap.

8.5 / 10.0 - My Time at Portia
Apr 16, 2019

If you're looking for a title that relieves tension instead of building it, My Time at Portia is as soothing as gaming gets. The craft-heavy life sim offers new spins on mainstays like farming, mining, and even fishing. It's the closest gaming equivalent to a warm cup of cocoa: soothing and satisfying. If Harvest Moon and Breath of the Wild had a baby, I'm positive their beautiful brood would feel like My Time at Portia.

Paperbound Brawlers was so frantic the first time I played it that I couldn't keep track of the action and quickly switched the game off. I'm glad I came back, though, because things start to click once you get the hang of how to use gravity as a weapon, and you start to see each level in a brand new light. Planning becomes virtually impossible, and you exist simply in the moment. Until a goo bomb kills you, that is.

9 / 10.0 - Windscape
Apr 15, 2019

Windscape is a melding of old action/adventure gaming with new mechanics and storytelling in mind, allowing the player to explore the nearly open-world around them at their own pace.

Overall, Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! is a fun game to play, though the story and some of the characters could have been done better.

6.5 / 10.0 - Neon Caves
Apr 12, 2019

I really enjoyed my time with Neon Caves. It brought me back to memories of my first gaming experiences. Trying the publisher's other games as suggested in the loading screen is something I myself plan to do.

Whether you are a true fan of the Atelier franchise, or just like RPG's and town simulation games, this will surely satisfy your thirst. It has enough gameplay elements, with depth, to make any gamer have enough content to last them for a while. The story and voice acting made the already in depth gameplay systems even better. This game is a must buy for any RPG or town simulator fan, especially as the Nintendo Switch lacks in town simulation games.

4 / 10.0 - Little Shopping
Apr 10, 2019

I'm not sure who Little Shopping is for. Sure, there's bright colors and even numbers to challenge young minds, but I'm positive a simple game of Tetris would be more satisfying and more stimulating than this barebones virtual shopping game. It's hard to recommend this game. As a former kid who was occasionally settled with poor titles, I can only say firmly: Kids deserve better.

OlliOlli: Switch stance is an awesome combination of two great games and packed with fun content. If you're a skateboarding fan or you just like a good sidescoller then you'll definitely want to check this one out.

7.5 / 10.0 - The Red Strings Club
Apr 8, 2019

Even though The Red Strings Club is in a pixelated genre which is oversaturated, the story all but makes up for it. I would recommend this despite its controls for anyone on a budget looking for a great story-telling game, and for all sci-fi/cyberpunk fans.

2 / 10.0 - Warparty
Apr 8, 2019

While Warparty is a visually stunning attempt at bringing real-time strategy to the Nintendo Switch, it's lacking in understandable controls and small maps that make the overall experience feel restrictive and monotonous.

Air Conflicts: Secret Wars maintains the pretty visuals and action-packed battles of the rest of the series, with a story that offers it more substances than its sisters.

8.5 / 10.0 - Yoshi's Crafted World
Apr 5, 2019

Despite a few minor complaints here and there, fans of Yoshi games and platformers in general should give Yoshi’s Crafted World a go – there’s even a free demo, so there’s nothing to lose. I highly recommend the game to gamers who enjoy playing with their family or a young child. Although I had a few complaints here and there, it was nothing to make me not want to recommend the game.

8 / 10.0 - Cuphead
Apr 5, 2019

I certainly don't regret my time spent with Cuphead, but also I don't know when I'll pick up the game again. There's too much rinse and repeat and rote memorization of bosses to be fun for me after a while. That being said, if you're looking for a steep challenge, Cuphead will certainly satisfy. The game is definitely a huge accomplishment–I just wish it was more universally accessible and fun for everyone.

7.5 / 10.0 - 12 is Better Than 6
Apr 5, 2019

12 is Better Than 6 provides quick, intense battles coupled with a great soundtrack and visuals. I had an enjoyable time in the Wild West – much more than expected. A few tweaks could go a long way, but as it is, I highly recommend this game to anyone looking for something unique in the twin-stick genre.
