When I heard that Pokemon Snap was being remade for the Switch and then it was going to be sold for the full $60 price, I was pretty skeptical. Which probably wasn’t helped due to Pokemon Sword/Shield where I mistakenly decided to keep myself in the dark and it ended up not feeling like it was worth the money. Also the fact that I never played the original Pokemon Snap (which even if my family…
So close, yet one card away
Released: November 13, 2018
Available on: Steam/Switch/Mobile
Genre: Puzzle Card Game
Man, sometimes I do miss playing mini-golf. It was always a fun experience whenever I was able to go as a kid and bonus points if the place had it themed (one time, a local indoor mini-golf place had everything glow-in-the dark). Going with some friends to see who can get the best score made it even more fun than just going with one of my parents. And fun fact one of my birthday parties was at a local…

When picking up a city builder, we always put the people in the best interests. After all, they’re the ones having to live in your city and it’s not good when they start leaving or dying on you. No matter if the goal is to make the best city where it’s like a well oiled machine no matter how big it gets or building your city around survival as…
No, NO. This is not a good time for my Ghost to surprise attack me.
To be honest, I’m not that good at Souls games, but I can’t help myself from wanting to play them. Maybe it’s just the overwhelmingly positive reception it has or that I love the look of them. I definitely overestimate my skills though. My entry point was with Dark Souls 2, which I now know wasn’t a good choice since it’s considered the…
“Be careful, snails are vegetarians” Wait why would you- *looks at Turnip Boy* Oh yah, I’m a turnip =P
Who likes to do taxes amiright? Well, except the weird few outliers that actually do look forward to doing their taxes. Well, if you’ve read the title of this game, you can already tell where this is going. It turns out that out Turnip Boy, who we’ll be playing as throughout the game, has been avoiding doing his taxes… or…
Time to get my pong on
Released: March 12, 2019
Available on: Steam/Switch/Mobile
Genre: Rhythm Sport
Publisher: Kalvarez A. Party
Ah ping pong. While I’m not able to play it anymore, at least in real life, I enjoyed it. I was a kid that was in an after school program before a big move, and in middle school we were all in this huge room (and I’m not talking about the cafeteria, that’s elementary school). It had some consoles on one wall, with everywhere else empty for anything you wanted to do and a ping pong table that…
If you would have ASKED NICELY I would have given you some blood.
This will contain spoilers, so if you’re planning on playing the demos on May 1st or want to go into Resident Evil Village without playing the demos, proceed with caution.
So last week we had the Castle Demo (you can check out my impressions here) where we got to play the beginning of the game that takes place at, well, the village that Ethan will be going to. While we didn’t see the set up, though we can piece it together based on the trailer footage we…

While giving those that have been looking forward to certain games some behind the scenes content from developers participating. …
A splash of Wizard of Oz, a blop of Red Riding Hood, and a dash of some southern accents
Released: April 8, 2021
Available on: Steam
Genre: Puzzle Adventure
Developer: Devespresso Games
Publisher: Headup, WhisperGames
Review copy provided by developers
While I have only played one game from Devespresso Games, I have been drawn to their games ever since I played The Coma: Cutting Class which absolutely terrified me at the time. Ever since then, I kept my eye on any of their releases and picked them up even though I didn’t end up playing them right away (which, I…
Oh Ethan, what did you get yourself into this time.
This will contain spoilers, so if you’re intending on playing the demo on May 1st, proceed with caution.
With the Maiden demo only for those lucky enough to buy a PS5, those of us with PS4s (and on May 1st, all the other platforms) finally have a demo to try out, but only available for 8 hours. This first part of the demo, called Village Demo, puts us at the beginning sometime after the establishing prologue where we already know would include Ethan and Mia moving here, Chris barging in…
