9.5 / 10.0 - Slay The Spire
Jun 17, 2019

EXCELLENT - Slay the Spire combines deck building with turn-based combat in a roguelike form like none other. Satisfying gameplay with so many player-driven actions makes for a completely fulfilling experience every run you take at the Spire – even when you perish. This is the type of game that will stay on my Switch for years to come.

GOOD - It’s so wonderful to see Nintendo allowing a very adult title on their system. There is no shortage of adventure titles on the Switch, and this is certainly one of the most entertaining. This game should take well over 10 hours to complete and offers a healthy and fair challenge. The major deterrent for buyers is going to be the $39.99 price point, which seems pretty high compared to other games in this genre. Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is filled with laughs, quirky characters, and plenty of humor making fun of the present day world as well as Larry’s past adventures.

6.5 / 10.0 - Chime Sharp
Jun 7, 2019

WORTH CONSIDERING - Chime Sharp brings puzzle placing action into the music genre after a long hiatus from other platforms. It delivers a more refined experience than its predecessor from long ago, and certainly should whet the appetites for longtime fans. There’s a bit of a learning curve, and not everything is explained very clearly to new users, but it shouldn’t hold anyone back for too long. For fans of puzzle games, it’s a solid game to have in your library, but may be a bit niche for everyone else.

7 / 10 - Crystal Crisis
Jun 6, 2019

GOOD - Crystal Crisis is a fun puzzler featuring various Nicalis characters and other cameos. You’ll be battling it out against the CPU or friends to see who comes out on top.

8 / 10 - Gato Roboto
Jun 5, 2019

Gato Roboto combines cats and mechs both blended into a Metroid-like adventure that is sure to please cat lovers and gamers alike. Kiki is the best and I’ll fight anyone to protect her.

8 / 10 - Thief Simulator
Jun 4, 2019

Thief Simulator gives you the skills to turn you into a burglar – something that’s quite unique on the Switch. The game is easy to pick up and play, requiring some patience and skill to master.

7.5 / 10.0 - Anarcute
Jun 3, 2019

GOOD - Anarcute brings a whimsical, colorful and (dare I say?) joyful experience to the act of rioting. With a Katamari-esque feel to collecting fellow rioters and grabbing environmental items to throw around, it’s a blast to cause mayhem and take down the corporations brainwashing folks. Accessible gameplay and challenging missions kept me coming back for more, although the game could have used more satisfying unlockable elements.

GREAT - It’s Final Fantasy VII. I love this game so much I went to a concert in Tokyo to watch “A One Winged Angel” performed live. If you’re even a remote fan of turn-based JRPGs you should probably pick this one up. At long last you can play it anywhere at anytime!

May 30, 2019

WORTH CONSIDERING - Time limits and ridiculously repetitive gameplay are the bane of Lapis x Labyrinth. The redeeming qualities are the explosive Fever episodes and the totem pole like party formation. After the first area, the game’s difficulty spikes and can make for some frustrating failures. Proceed with caution, but for the right type of player it can be a fun and rewarding experience.

7.5 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
May 29, 2019

GOOD - Team Sonic Racing is a fun alternative to other competitive racers on the Switch. It features bright and detailed graphics, easy to learn controls, and a cool team-based approach to racing not seen in other titles. It seems a little sparse on tracks and characters, but perhaps we’re just spoiled by MK8 Deluxe. It’s well worth the $40 asking price!

GREAT - Fans of the Castlevania series will surely fall in love with this collection. It chronicles the early days of the series (the first ten years) and features some amazing classics. Just the inclusion of Kid Dracula is worth checking this one out and Super Castlevania IV makes it a must-own.

7.5 / 10.0 - Redout
May 23, 2019

GOOD - Redout features hyper fast racing and looks visually stunning when playing on the TV. Controls are sharp and fluid, but a completely dead online multiplayer and no local play option was disappointing, and the visual fidelity in handheld mode leaves much to be desired. The $40 asking price is double the competition, like Fast RMX, but Redout features a ton of tracks and modes and futuristic racing fans will definitely find a lot to like here.

9.5 / 10.0 - Venture Kid
May 22, 2019

EXCELLENT - Venture Kid is a true retro gem for the Nintendo Switch. Fans of the NES Mega Man games and lovers of 8-bit chiptunes will find a ton to like here. Why aren’t you playing this yet?

8 / 10 - Akane
May 20, 2019

GREAT - QubicGames’ Akane is a game that truly emboldens the phrase, “Simple, but well executed.” While it can be lacking in depth and variety, it nails it in the categories that truly matter: gameplay, value, and most importantly… fun! For $4.99, Akane is a great addition to your Switch collection.

8.5 / 10.0 - Duck Game
May 17, 2019

GREAT - Duck Game is a quirky gem that has stood the test of time. Once released on a failure of a console, it has managed to find new life on the Switch with its fun gameplay and fantastic game modes. In the end, this game is a true work of poultry.

6 / 10 - Koral
May 16, 2019

WORTH CONSIDERING - Koral brings us on a journey to better understand the destructive nature of certain fishing practices, climate change, and more. The journey is a gorgeous, but humbling one. Highly accessible controls let you control the current of the ocean to solve lightweight puzzles and revitalize the ocean. With 10 chapters to explore, there’s a reasonable amount of content, but it won’t have much in the way of replayability once you’re done, although it’s still a worthwhile journey to embark on.

7 / 10 - Blazing Beaks
May 15, 2019

GOOD - Blazing Beaks combines a modern and retro gaming feel to create a unique experience on the Nintendo Switch. With solo and multiplayer options, there should be a little something for everyone here.

GOOD - Puyo Puyo Champions is Puyo Puyo, plain and simple. It offers half the content of its predecessor, with a price that is definitely fair for what’s being offered. If you’re looking for the Puyo Puyo experience and want to save on money, then this is the game for you. But if you have the money, then it might be best to spring for Puyo Puyo Tetris.

GOOD - The overall lack of polish on Saints Row: The Third is apparent, but it’s still a lot fun to jump back to a time where open world shooters weren’t overrun with loot boxes and forced online functionality. A bit more refinement would’ve made this a must-have title, but fans of customization, blowing up helicopters, and Burt Reynolds, should find a lot to like here.

8.5 / 10.0 - Picross S3
May 7, 2019

GREAT - Picross S3 is the best so far on the Switch. It adds in color for some of the puzzles and the Clip Picross mode is a genius way to keep players engaged in unlocking new panels. Whether you’re new to the series or a veteran, this one’s a keeper!
