    Super Hydorah Review

    Throwback and retro games aren't anything new, but so many developers manage to get it wrong, failing to capture the charm of classic 80s games, particularly the delicate balance of simplicity and challenge that made arcade shoot 'em ups so wonderfully addictive. Super Hydorah, however, manages to get it just right. From developer Locomalito and publisher Abylight Studios, Super Hydorah is a clear love letter to shoot 'em ups, and recreates the classic look and feel of the genre with the perfect modern touch to make it feel fresh and exciting in 2018. An evil bio-mechanical alien force has invaded the galaxy, and it's up to you to stop it. The story feels right out of an arcade, capturing the retro throwback vibe even better than many other modern retro-style games. Sure that also means there's not a ton of depth to the story but what more plot do you need when waves of alien ships are firing on you? Super Hydorah is a game about strapping in for frantic side-scroller action, not fancy cutscenes. In the proud tradition of side-scrolling shoot 'em ups, Super Hydorah is a simple to understand but challenging to master kind of game. There's really only one button you need to focus on (you'll fire both your main and subweapon with one button), aside from your super weapon which requires ammo so you're not going to be using it as often. Generally you're just going to be holding down the fire button as you dodge incoming enemy attacks, building that delightfully hypnotic fixation that shoot 'em ups have—don't look away from the screen for even a second or your ship might get blown up! A causal observer might make the mistake of thinking this kind of game is easy to develop, but to make a game like this truly balanced and engaging requires a perfect understanding of the genre, and the developers have nailed it with Super Hydorah. The game has just the right blend of challenge without becoming tedious, style and spectacle without being overly flashy, and complexity without bogging the player down with options. Super Hydorah does an incredible job of making a modern retro game that doesn't feel weighed down by clunky old mechanics nor inundated with pointless additions. Throughout all this there are still plenty of features that make Super Hydorah unique. There's the branching map system that allows you to choose what stage to tackle next—you can even go back to previous stages that you haven't completed yet. The map isn't terribly complex and obviously still leads to the same final boss every time, but there's enough variation that you can try building your own speedruns/playthroughs. There's also a solid selection of weapons you can use, which are unlocked as you complete different stages. All of the classic weapon formats are represented here—lasers, homing missiles, scattershot—but the ability to choose what to use is another invaluable feature for adding variety to the game. And every weapon can be powered up by items you collect while playing; plus the nice thing about Super Hydorah is that you don't lose those power-ups entirely when you die. You'll lose a percentage—there's still a penalty for dying—but it's not totally discouraging. Maintaining a bit of your weapon power after respawning helps maintain the momentum and flow of the game as well. One playthrough of the game won't last too long (assuming you don't die and retry as often as I do) but like many great shoot 'em ups there's a ton of replay value to enjoy with Super Hydorah. For one, there's just the classic challenge of earning a high score, which is no easy feat here. Each stage also has some sort of hidden secret to uncover, so completionists have a good reason to learn the game inside and out. There's also taking different paths on the map and using different weapons of course, plus there are two difficulty modes so you can ease yourself into the game before tackling the more challenging normal mode. Last but certainly not least, the whole game supports local co-op, and having a buddy along for the frantic shoot 'em up ride is a lot of fun. Plus there's even a side mode mini-game to enjoy. Suffice it to say, even if playing through Super Hydorah once doesn't take long, there's plenty to keep you coming back for more. With its emphasis on classic gameplay design, it shouldn't be any surprise that the visuals and audio in Super Hydorah are a throwback to old school games as well. The pixel graphics art style looks fantastic here—there's even an option to turn on a CRT filter to mimic old TVs and monitors. Retro fans will love it and even young players will appreciate the slick, pixel perfect artwork. To match the graphics there's an equally great old school soundtrack from Gryzor87 that feels like it was lifted straight out of the 80s, from synth influences to classic rock riffs. For what is a relatively short game there's an impressive number of songs to enjoy, each one perfecting the retro appeal of Super Hydorah. Fans of the shoot 'em up genre take note: there are still excellent games being made in this style, with all of the charm of the 80s classics we grew up on, blended with enough modern conveniences that the experience still feels fresh and accessible. Super Hydorah is a lovingly made, highly polished ode to arcade shoot 'em ups, one that doesn't pull any punches but will still keep you coming back for one more try. This one is a must for fans of the genre, and will likely inspire new ones as well. Rating: 8 out of 10 Spaceships Review copy provided by publisher Super Hydorah is available now on the Switch eShop for $19.99.

    Mimpi Dreams Review

    Originally released for PC and mobile devices back in 2016, Mimpi Dreams from developer/publisher Dreadlocks Ltd makes its way to the Switch this week and brings with it a delightfully charming take on puzzle/platforming gameplay. It may not be the most complex game on the eShop, but its approachable, simple design makes it a fun, if brief, adventure. You play as Mimpi, a small dog who, when he sleeps, has big dreams of adventures. From forests and medieval castles to adventures on Mars, Mimpi's dreams always take him to places where nightmares need to be defeated and the locals need rescuing. Mimpi Dreams is ridiculously cute—Mimpi even dresses up in little themed outfits you can find in each stage—and the fact that its story points are all told visually makes it an ideal game for kids. You're not going to get much elaborate storytelling here, but Mimpi's charming heroics, reminiscent of classic platformer games, works well enough for this plot. The gameplay is a mix of puzzle/platformer: your goal is to reach the end of each level, but along the way you'll encounter all manner of obstacles that will hinder your progress. Sometimes it's a simple matter of knocking over a tree to make a bridge, while other times you need to solve something a little more involved to open the path forward. Mimpi Dreams does a solid job of throwing a variety of puzzles at the player, enough that it never feels like you're just doing the same things over and over. There are plenty of clever challenges as well, but generally the puzzles aren't too complicated. If you do need a helping hand though, there's a built-in hint system to help. There's a limit on how many hints you can use but it's possible to unlock more as you play, so even novice players can pretty comfortably progress through Mimpi Dreams. What makes the puzzle-solving a little more unique is that you're able to interact with a lot of the scenery in the environment. In addition to moving Mimpi you also have a cursor that can touch anything on screen, and this is typically your main way of solving a puzzle—oftentimes the biggest challenge is just figuring out what in the scenery you can actually interact with. With a traditional controller you move the cursor with the right stick and hit ZR to interact with things, which feels a little clumsy compared to the original touch controls on mobile or keyboard/mouse on PC. The good news is no puzzle requires such precise timing that you'll fumble it just because of the slow controls, so even though the controls don't quite feel ideal it won't inhibit the experience. Mimpi Dreams also supports motion control with the Joy-Cons, though trying to interact with puzzles this way has its own set of problems. The movement never quite feels as precise as you need it to be, and oftentimes will slow you down even more than trying to use the control stick. Of course, with the Switch you can also just go undocked and use the touch screen, which definitely feels more comfortable with certain puzzles. You'll have to keep your hands on the controls anyway to move and jump as Mimpi, but the trade off might be worth it at times. With a dog's mind as its setting Mimpi Dreams comes up with plenty of bizarre, surreal set pieces, and paired with the game's clean, crisp art style the visuals are a lot of fun. It's cute and cartoony, and the game's unique sense of style helps set it apart, even when Mimpi is traveling through more traditional video game locales like a forest or castle. And although the game can be a little light on background music at times, the main theme is catchy enough—and loops often enough—that it's sure to get stuck in your head. Just like the game's art the song is cute and charming, and helps lull you into the relaxed gameplay. There are only seven levels in the game but they get progressively longer and more complicated, culminating in an adventure on Mars that tests all of the skills the player has cultivated up until that point. Still, Mimpi Dreams isn't a long game, and the average player will most likely finish the whole thing in just a few hours. But completionists may enjoy finding all of the collectible bones in each level as well as tackling the challenge mode which tasks you with getting through as much of the game as you can with only one life. Even this isn't too hard with a little bit of caution, but it's still a decent way to challenge yourself. With engaging puzzles, a cute sense of style, and an adorable protagonist, Mimpi Dreams is an utterly endearing game, one that proves to be engaging even if not particularly complex. Despite minor control quirks Mimpi Dreams offers an adorable adventure for inexperienced players or anyone looking for a more relaxed game. Rating: 7 out of 10 Bones Review copy provided by the publisher Mimpi Dreams is available now on the Switch eShop for $9.99.

  8. I've really been slacking off on making this thread, GU has been out for almost three weeks now. I've only been playing in earnest for the past week or so though, and just got to G1 rank over the weekend (I transferred my data—so nice to be able to just jump right into the game without tediously building up resources!). So consider this a general discussion thread for GU. Who else is playing? Did you start from scratch or transfer your data? Any interest in forming a regular hunting party here on Ninfora? What's New in Ultimate? Generations was already meant to be a collection that draws upon aspects of the entire Monster Hunter series, and Ultimate manages to expand on that even further—there are 93 large monsters in this game! Here's quick highlight of the new content: First and foremost, G-rank! The highest level of difficulty in a Monster Hunter game returns in GU, perfect for players that already mastered Generations and want to jump right into the more challenging content. 20 Additional Monsters (including old, new, and new variants): 2 New Hunting Styles (plus one new Art for each weapon): 7 Additional Maps (1 brand new, 2 returning, 1 arena, 3 monster-specific maps): Last but certainly not least, players are able to transfer their save data from Generations on the 3DS to GU by downloading a free app to the 3DS.

    Pinstripe Review

    What better time of year than October to take a quick trip through Hell? Pinstripe, created by Thomas Brush with developer Atmos Games and publisher Serenity Forge, takes players on a surreal adventure through the underworld, one that is haunting and eerie rather than filled with brimstone and fire. It's that atmosphere that makes Pinstripe special though, even if the gameplay challenges are light. In Pinstripe you play as Teddy, an ex-minister who, as the game begins, is traveling on a train with his three-year old daughter Bo. After meeting the perfectly creepy Mr. Pinstripe, Bo is kidnapped and whisked away to Hell, leaving Teddy to chase after them through eerie landscapes populated by despondent souls in the thrall of Pinstripe. If there's one thing this game does perfectly it's atmosphere. The entire adventure has an emotional, melancholy tone, and not just for the fact that a father is rescuing his daughter. In addition there's a bit of a mystery element to the game since nothing is explicitly explained to you, and the bizarre setting has a variety of strange quirks in it. It's enough to keep you completely enraptured by the game, and even if the game's themes of loss and despair end up feeling a little light by the end it's easy to be invested in the journey. The gameplay itself is something of a mix of adventure exploration and puzzle-solving, i.e. you may need a specific item to progress, but to find it you'll go through a variety of puzzles. It's a solid gameplay basis though tends to err on the easy side—this isn't the kind of game where you'll get stumped on a puzzle or lost for a good amount of time, everything is laid out before you pretty clearly. There are still a lot of fun little puzzles to enjoy in Pinstripe but ultimately it feels like the gameplay is just something to keep you busy while you're drinking in the atmosphere and story rather than the core of the game. The game also includes light combat, though generally enemy attacks are only a minor nuisance and you can easily dispatch them with your weapons. Aiming can feel a little clumsy at first, perhaps because the game was built for PC so dual-stick aiming feels a little off, but you never really have to aim and fire quickly so it's not much of a problem. The only other notable issue with Pinstripe is the loading times which are a little too long when you're moving between regions (within regions there's no loading). This can be particularly tiresome since you have to backtrack a few times throughout the game, and the loading screens spoil some of the game's momentum. Even if the puzzles and exploration are a bit light Pinstripe has an undeniably beautiful sense of style. The best description of it is simply atmospheric—the visual design does an incredible job of reinforcing the sense of loss and isolation that Teddy is going through, and also provides some beautifully eerie scenes. It's the kind of visual design that makes you pause to appreciate the small touches on every screen. All of this is matched with an equally fantastic soundtrack, one that perfectly captures the haunting atmosphere but also has a number of quirky and catchy tunes as well. It's eclectic, and yet somehow suits the somewhat surreal world of Pinstripe. If there's one other major complaint about Pinstripe it's simply that the game is so short. Especially with its simple puzzle design it's easy to run through the game in just a couple of hours—and that's not the say the game isn't enjoyable during that time, but both the environments and gameplay design feel like they could have been put toward an even longer game. There's also a new game+ option which allows you to explore a few more areas. These don't hold anything of crucial importance to the game's story or gameplay but it can be nice to replay the game and take in all of the little details it offers—it'd only take you a couple of hours after all. Pinstripe offers beautiful and haunting trip through a surreal Hell, where psychological abuse seems to weigh more heavily on its denizens than physical torture. All of that incredible atmosphere unfortunately isn't matched by the gameplay, which proves somewhat shallow, but even if the challenges are small there are still some fun puzzles to enjoy. Players looking for a thoughtful, emotional adventure would do well to give Pinstripe a try. Rating: 7 out of 10 Stripes Review copy provided by the publisher Pinstripe will be available on the Switch eShop on October 25th for $14.99. Pre-purchase the game now for a 20% discount.
  11. For a while there it looked like we weren't going to get this game in the West (originally called Monster Hunter XX in Japan), but Switch owners can rejoice: while other systems are playing Monster Hunter World we've got Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, the most jam-packed Monster Hunter game to date. This is an expansion of the 3DS game originally released in the West in 2016 so the basic premise will be familiar to many players (in fact, I'm reposting my review of that game below since it covers so much of this game as well), but a little similarity to previous entries has never stopped a true Monster Hunter fan. For those of us that are helplessly addicted to the hunt, Generations Ultimate is…well, the ultimate experience. First off, one of the nicest features in this game is simply the fact that you're able to transfer your progress from Generations on the 3DS to this Switch game. It's a quick, simple process and incredibly valuable for saving a lot of time building up an inventory of basic resources. Tackling every hunt can be a lot of fun in Monster Hunter but transferring data like this helps veteran hunters jump right to the new content. It's hard to know what to say about Generations Ultimate since it's basically an expansion of Generations for the 3DS. The core elements are the same but this game adds more monsters, more hunting styles, more maps—more everything! Generations Ultimate may not have a fancy new gameplay gimmick or monster type but the game doubles down on Generations' premise as a collection of Monster Hunter greatest hits. With even more monsters and maps from the franchise's history represented here, this truly is an almost all-encompassing representation of the series's rich hunting history. For fans of Monster Hunter it doesn't get much better than this—Generations Ultimate is everything you love, all packed into one Switch cartridge. And on the other hand, Generations Ultimate may not necessarily win over new players. Monster Hunter games have grown increasingly more accessible with each generation but there are still plenty of little aspects that players might find tedious, like collecting resources or the seemingly endless grind to earn rare item drops from monsters. If the game clicks for you you'll be hooked for literally hundreds of hours of playtime, but if not the gameplay might seem repetitive. Aside from just plain more monsters to fight, one of the more significant additions to Generations Ultimate is two new hunter styles, Valor and Alchemy. Valor isn't that dissimilar from the existing Adept style as both rely upon reading the monster perfectly to time your dodges, but Valor also gives the benefit of building up a Valor State that allows you to perform new attacks, depending upon what weapon you're using. It can be a risky style to use but also a fun change of pace for pros that want a little something new. Alchemy lets you craft items in the middle of a battle, some of which affect the whole hunting party, so it's useful for players that like playing support. It's also pretty complicated to learn since you basically have to learn all of the alchemy recipes and then remember which ones you want to use in battle, but with a bit of practice it's a nice addition to multiplayer hunts. Of course, possibly the best reason to get Generations Ultimate even if you played the 3DS game to death is the addition of G-rank, the highest difficulty rank in a Monster Hunter game where enemies hit even harder and add new attack patterns. One of the best things about Monster Hunter is the satisfaction of defeating a particularly troublesome beast, so adding another layer of difficulty to the game is perfect for players that enjoy a challenge. G-rank is a true test of skill, and rising to the challenge either alone or with friends is a blast. It's been a while since we've gotten to enjoy a Monster Hunter game on an HD system (well, an HD Nintendo system at any rate) and seeing all of the game's 93 monsters on the big screen is a real treat. Granted, Generations Ultimate still has its roots in the 3DS so the visuals are upscaled and still retain a certain grainy simplicity, notably in menus, but the graphics are still good—they're just not as great as they might have been if the game was built from the ground up for the Switch. The music isn't half bad either and helps give each hunt an epic tone—there's no better song to pump you up for hunting than the series's main theme. That "Ultimate" addition to the title isn't much of an exaggeration: Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate takes a game that was already made to be a compilation of the greatest hits from the franchise and packs in even more content with a quest list to make even the most seasoned hunter's head spin. The new features may be pretty minimal in the grand scheme but fans of the series won't mind. This isn't a game made to revolutionize the way Monster Hunter is played—it's a game for hardcore hunting fans that can't get enough of battling gigantic monsters, crafting weapons and armor, and doing it all again and again.

  12. Took 20 years but at least we can become Pokemon Masters. Sorry Ash.
  13. Chinese mobile device manufacturer, Huawei, is marketing their new Mate 20 X as a Switch competitor... I guess everyone one wants a pace of the Switch pie. Unless they can get 3rd parties on board to release games of the quality of the ones on Switch, then I don't see this doing much. Plus, it's 3x the price of a Switch!!! EDIT: Wait! This thing really only has one controller? WUT?! o_O

    Mega Man 11 Review

    It's almost hard to believe we were once seeing new Mega Man games just about every year, but then waited over a decade between Mega Man 8 and 9, and now eight years between 10 and 11. Even though Capcom likes to keep its fans in constant suspense over the future of its franchises they've produced some outstanding titles recently, including Mega Man 11. With a perfect blend of old school difficulty with new visuals and gameplay features, Mega Man 11 finds a fantastic balance between retro charm and modern flair. This may shock longtime Mega Man fans, but the plot of this game involves Dr. Wily using eight robot masters to try to take over the world. Shocking, I know. Even though Wily is up to his same old tricks he's got a new gadget to get the job done: the Double Gear, a piece of technology he created in his younger days to make robots stronger and faster. To defeat him this time Mega Man makes use of the same tech. Mega Man 11 isn't about to win any writing awards but the game does add a little to the backstories of Wily and Dr. Light, and the use of voice actors helps make the intro and ending cutscenes a little more fun the watch. Despite the facelift to 2.5D graphics, the gameplay here is classic Mega Man. You have eight robot masters to defeat, each with a themed level and a weapon you'll receive upon beating them, and Mega Man has his standard arsenal of tools: Mega Buster, charged shot, sliding, Rush Coil and Jet, etc. Mega Man 11 is everything players love about the franchise and feels right at home alongside the other main numbered entries. The robot masters don't have the same charm as past bosses, nor quite the same challenges, but the formula of defeating one to use its weapon against another remains an engaging one. The one egregious missing element, though, is the fact that Mega Man does not freeze when jumping through boss room doors. How dare Capcom overlook the most important aspect of the Blue Bomber. Mega Man 11 also has a classic sense of difficulty. It's not quite as completely cutthroat as the original NES games but it gets pretty close at times, from spike traps to tricky jumps where wind is pushing you in one direction or the other. As usual there are checkpoints throughout each stage but losing all of your lives sends you back to the beginning. Fans of the series know that some of this repetition is just par for the course though, and the challenge of perfecting your skills throughout the early portions of each stage is far more satisfying than it is stifling. Plus Mega Man 11 makes things easier on the player with a generous items system that allows you to buy extra lives, energy tanks, and permanent upgrades that can be invaluable if you're struggling. This game captures that classic sense of difficulty without the same sense of frustration thanks to these concessions to the player. In addition to all of the classic elements of Mega Man that have returned there is an important new feature: the double gear. This ability lets you temporarily increase your speed or power, perfect for getting around a tricky enemy or taking down a robot master quickly. The double gear feels right at home in the series: it's a valuable tool but doesn't feel like an uncomfortably different play style from classic Mega Man since it only enhances his abilities rather than create new features to learn (although I often forgot to use it, being used to classic Mega Man gameplay as is). Since you can only use it for a limited time before it overheats and reduces Mega Man's power it's also nicely balanced—it'll help you get through some tricky moments but you can't just rely on it constantly, you still need to hone your platforming skills. Mega Man 11 clocks in at a respectable five hours or so—it feels like the right length for a Mega Man game, though admittedly a significant chunk of that time is spent on the first few levels, dying and retrying before you have enough bolts to purchase extra lives and upgrades. If you can't get enough of the Blue Bomber though there are different difficulty levels you can tackle plus a variety of challenges that give you specific goals, from simple time trials to finishing a level while jumping as little as possible. The game's power up system also makes it easy to set your own challenges—playing the game without power ups or purchasing extra lives is a lot more difficult but some players might appreciate the classic feel it offers. Unlike the classic pixel art of the original NES games or even the more detailed pixel art of some of the later entries, Mega Man 11 features 2.5D graphics which gives a pseudo-3D effect while still retaining basic side-scrolling gameplay. The effect is great and feels like an appropriate modernization of Mega Man. You get some beautiful background artwork and a few flashy visuals without betraying the familiar, somewhat cartoonish design of classic enemies and of course Mega Man himself. The soundtrack also does a fine job of capturing the nostalgic charm of past music tracks while still feeling fresh and new. Not all of the songs quite live up to the franchise's history but to be fair those are some big shoes to fill. Just like Mega Men 9 and 10, Mega Man 11 is a love letter to the Blue Bomber, recreating all of the best—and some of the more challenging—elements of the franchise. Unlike the other games though, this one also does a fantastic job of establishing new gameplay elements that feel fresh and valuable without betraying any of the classic difficulty or game design of the series. Longtime fans will love having another Mega Man adventure to play through, and new players will enjoy the fact that, while still challenging, Mega Man 11's item system makes the adventure much more manageable.

  17. It may not have the star power of Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest but the Ys series been around just about as long as those two RPG franchises, and continues to put out new content with Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana, originally released in Japan in 2016 and recently ported to the Switch. Don't worry if you haven't been keeping up though; Ys VIII acts as a standalone title that anyone can jump straight into, and RPG fans will want to give the game a look for its fast-paced combat and large, engaging environments to explore. Each game in the Ys series follows the same protagonist, Adol Christin, adventurer extraordinaire, who seems to have a knack for stumbling into the right place at the right time. As the game begins Adol and his pal Dogi have found work aboard a passenger ship, but when a ferocious sea monster attacks Adol wakes up shipwrecked on the deserted island of Seiren. Strange rumors surround the island though, and it's up to Adol to get to the bottom of them while also rescuing other castaways and finding a way off the island. Ys VIII does a fine job of keeping the player engaged as you gradually find more survivors and uncover more strange happenings on the island. There are, however, some cliché plot points and one subplot in particular that feels completely out of left-field and oddly melodramatic—some parts of the writing definitely could have been tightened up. Also, despite a patch to address the more egregious typos and text errors, there are still a handful of noticeable typos throughout the game. But there's still a lot of charm in the writing thanks to a large and likeable cast of characters, as well as the mystery at the heart of the story. One of the defining traits of the Ys series is its action-based combat. Rather than turn-based or even combat-mode battles of similar JRPGs, Ys VIII lets you run right up to an enemy and smack it with Adol's sword. Monsters are scattered everywhere on the island and thanks to the seamless fluidity of attacking or fleeing from them Ys VIII has a great sense of fast-paced combat. You're free to move about while attacking and you have both dodging and blocking mechanics that give battles a satisfying intensity. Plus the game finds an excellent balance of difficulty. There may be an emphasis on dodging to avoid attacks but you're not going to be overwhelmed if you're not the type of player with perfect timing. This isn't a full-on action game where you need to pick your moments precisely—there's enough freedom that you can just go all out on an enemy, you'll just do a little better for dodging and blocking effectively. It makes the combat feel vibrant without bogging the player down in learning every monster's attack pattern. There are also a couple of other important aspects of combat. Most monsters have an attack-type weakness (slash, pierce, or strike) and each member of your party uses a different attack-type, so to play most effectively you'll want to switch between your three active party members (naturally, as an action-RPG, you can only control one at a time). Additionally, every character has unique skills for dealing more damage, and the party shares one SP meter. With these other elements in mind, combat in Ys VIII has a satisfying blend of both strategy and fast-paced action—there's something incredibly rewarding about demolishing a monster by using the right attack-type to break its defenses then using flashy special attacks to defeat it. And again, Ys VIII never bogs the player down with little details. You don't have to worry much about managing your SP meter since it recovers pretty quickly as you attack. The members you're not actively controlling still attack for a small amount of damage, but on the plus side they'll take little damage as well so you don't have to babysit them. The only minor annoyance here is that status effects can be hard to notice sometimes, but you can pause the battle at any moment to use a recovery item, so once again Ys VIII makes it easy to just enjoy the combat without punishing the player for not playing perfectly. The other core aspect of the game is exploration. It's only one island but Seiren is a big environment to explore, although it's mostly linear thanks to specific checkpoints that require special items or plot progression. Also each area is divided up into smaller regions, so the island isn't quite seamless (and even with these subdivisions distant objects sometimes pop into view with a jittering low framerate). Still, exploring is pretty fun in Ys VIII, partially thanks to the item collection/crafting system that encourages you to explore every nook and cranny. The materials you find or pick up from defeated monsters can be used to upgrade weapons or craft new armor and items, so it behooves you to pick up everything you can. This kind of item collection can be tedious in other games but Ys VIII makes it pretty simple, especially because you can also trade materials for others, so if you're missing just one piece of ore to upgrade your sword you don't have to run around fighting monsters until you find it. The only problem with exploration is the odd use of adventuring gear. These are items you need to progress further, such as gloves that let you climb vines. What's odd is that the game forces you to equip these in special adventure gear slots, which feels like a pointless restriction when these are simple necessities for exploration. It's not hard to swap out these items on the fly but it still feels like an unnecessary quirk of the game. Control-wise Ys VIII isn't too hard to pick up, but if you do have any trouble with them the game features full button customization. For example I swapped L for ZL and R for ZR which felt more comfortable for dodging and blocking. The game makes it easy to find the right fit for you. The visuals in Ys VIII feel like somewhat of a mixed bag. The graphics are by no means bad—characters have a charming anime look that is bright and colorful, and the animation is nice and smooth—but overall the art style never truly impresses. The environments are fine for what they are but there aren't any scenes that feel particularly stunning or stylish, plus there's a grainy, low-res look to some of the textures. As mentioned the draw distance can get a little funky at times as distant enemies stutter through low framerate movements. None of these are problems that will spoil the experience at all, but it does feel like the graphics are the one area of Ys VIII that truly lacks polish. On the other hand, the game does boast a pretty excellent soundtrack, one that is just as fun and catchy when it's playing for a momentous boss battle scene as when it's just adding ambiance to exploration. There are plenty of great songs to enjoy throughout the adventure. With it's large island teeming with monsters and treasures, Ys VIII clocks in at a pretty respectable 40 hours or so, assuming you don't waste too much time just exploring. But the game also features a number of side quests, courtesy of the other castaways you rescue. You're able to help them and raise their affinity which aids in another side adventure, fortifying your base of operations from monster attacks. Plus there are also optional areas to explore, and if you decide the gameplay isn't challenging enough you can up the difficulty. And finally once you finish the game you can start again with new game+ and carry over certain features. For RPG fans there's plenty to enjoy here. Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana feels like it has a good chance of completely flying under the radar thanks to other high profile recent RPG releases on the Switch, but RPG fans would be doing themselves a disservice by overlooking this one. With its appealing story, fast-paced combat system, satisfying exploration, and stellar soundtrack, Ys VIII offers a lengthy, engrossing adventure. A few rough edges in the plot and visuals shouldn't deter anyone looking for an engaging action-RPG on the Switch. Rating: 8 out of 10 Castaways

    Flinthook Review

    In a galaxy full of scoundrels, one small pirate is ready to rise up and steal his share of the treasure. Flinthook is a roguelike action/platformer built around a handful of simple actions that are put to the test through a variety of randomly generated challenges, pushing the player to perfect the core mechanics of the game to prepare for anything the game can throw at them. Although the gameplay is solid, the roguelike elements prove to be more draining than entertaining. The storytelling in Flinthook is pretty minimal, especially since the main story is told without any text or dialogue, but an opening cutscene reveals a space pirate heist and you, as Flinthook, set off to stop the pirates and collect a little treasure for yourself. That's mostly all you get for plot in this game since the focus is on replaying runs over and over, but you can also find bits of lore hidden in pirate ships which flesh out the game's world a little more. It's a shame since the space pirate concept seems like a fun idea to build on, but the light story ultimately doesn't detract too much from the gameplay. Armed with a pistol, a grappling hook, and the ability to slow down time, Flinthook takes on all manner of challenges as he boards one pirate ship after another, leading up to a climactic boss fight at the end of each run. At its core the gameplay in Flinthook is a blast: swinging around on the grappling hook feels great and although you don't have a lot of variety in your attacks (aside from your gun you can hold one subweapon, such as a bomb) it's still satisfying to hone your skills to dodge and shoot your way through each ship. Flinthook does a great job of focusing on a couple of interesting game mechanics and building out fun challenges around them. The only problem I have with the game is just the fact that it's a roguelike, meaning that the game expects you to try, fail, and retry constantly while stumbling through procedurally generated levels. When you die you lose all progress in that run, and having that sword hanging over your head the entire time can be pretty discouraging, especially when the randomly generated levels start tossing out frustrating and sometimes even downright unfair rooms—more than once I entered a room and immediately took damage from a trap, which is pretty obnoxious, needless to say. The limits on healing may make the game more challenging but it mars the fun freedom of using the grappling hook as you end up often playing super defensively which feels at odds with the fluidity of the grapple movements. On the brightside Flinthook does allow you to purchase permanent upgrades and equip perks to boost your skills, so even failed runs can yield some degree of progress. The game doesn't make earning these upgrades easy though, and you essentially have to grind for quite a bit of time to earn enough currency to purchase them, which brings the gameplay right back to the repetitive trial and error formula that makes roguelikes great for replay value but also incredibly tedious and downright disheartening at times. Like any other roguelike you have to approach Flinthook with an abundance of patience and the understanding that progress comes slow. As for controls Flinthook feels pretty intuitive from the moment you pick it up, with just a couple of small issues. One, aiming with the left stick—the same stick you're using to move around—makes for a pretty challenging experience since it's hard to be precise with your aim or dodge away while still firing. Using your slow-motion ability alleviates a lot of that awkwardness though, plus the game has other control options that might feel more comfortable. Two, some enemies have a bubble shield that you need to pop with your grappling hook before you can damage them. If a bubbled enemy is next to a hook though it can be hard to hit them as the grappling hook might automatically attach to the hook—especially problematic if you're dodging incoming attacks at the same time. Although Flinthook's controls are overall pretty satisfying to use, there are these occasional instances that can frustrate, which is only amplified by the high stakes of each run. The pixel art aesthetic sure is common in indie games but it almost always manages to look great, and Flinthook is no exception. The game gives off a classic SNES era vibe with beautiful backgrounds and charming character/enemy designs. The downside is that the scenery occasionally feels a bit too busy while you're trying to focus on dodging attacks, but overall the style still looks beautiful. The soundtrack also has a nice classic feel to it. The music can feel a little repetitive at times, mostly because you're constantly exploring one pirate ship after another with similar tunes guiding you along, but there's still a great fun sense of energy to the audio that helps propel you along the adventure. Flinthook's charming aesthetics and focus on simple but satisfying 2D action/platforming mechanics makes for a great side-scrolling adventure, as long as you're prepared to handle the repetitive nature of a roguelike title, including the occasionally clumsy or unfair challenges that arise from randomly generated levels. It would have been great to see the same mechanics used in a more structured game, but as it is the roguelike gameplay at least guarantees plenty of unique challenges as you shoot and grapple your way across the galaxy.

  21. UPDATE: Announced in Nintendo's Nintendo Direct: E3, Fortnite will be available today at 10 am PT! -------------------------------------------------------------------------- With all the recent leaks, we all know Fortnite is coming to Switch...It's just a matter of when (It's literally the only platform it's currently not on). Apparently the game is supposed to drop tomorrow ( I assume after the E3 Direct), because the eShop page for the game is up on Nintendo's servers, but has not been made public yet. *Sorry if I spoiled this for anyone, but there has been talk of this coming to Switch for months. I've yet to play Fortnite yet, but I'll give it a shot when it hits Switch. From what I've seen, It looks like it could be pretty fun for a F2P game and I really like the art style.
  22. Someone found a Super Mario Party cartridge at an airport and decided to sell it on ebay.... Ok...I can understand this if it were like a Smash Bros. or Pokémon, but Mario Party? WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?!!! o_O' Maybe Nintendo is the one who bought the game, because they don't want it out in the public and leaks and all (you know how they are)? Though, most likely their ninjas would have just showed up at the seller's house and confiscated the game. Now that I think of it, it could be someone like a YouTuber who bought the game to get all those views for that sweet YT $. Though, wouldn't Nintendo take down their video(s) if posted before release? Anyway, I'm not sure how the game got out, since stores most likely haven't gotten the game yet, but if you look at the eBay listing, it says from Seattle Washington. Maybe a NOA employee dropped it while at the airport, or dare I say...something shady went down?
  23. A dataminer has found code within the Switch eShop that mentions SNES, N64, and Game Boy, and DS... Apparently, this is the same code that can be found on the 3DS, so it could be just something carried over. Though, I do find it odd how there's no mention of NES. If Nintendo does have plans of a traditional VC, does this mean that NES games will be exclusive to NSO members? That would really suck if all NSO members got were NES games, and if you wanted games from other systems, you have to buy them individually. I know people would rather just pick and choose which VC games they'd like to own on Switch, but I personally find it more of a value to have a Netflix style service for the VC included with your NSO membership. As much as everyone wants a traditional VC on Switch, I don't see it happening. Nintendo has said they "There are currently no plans to bring classic games together under the Virtual Console banner on Switch", so most likely classic games will be only be available as apart of your NSO membership. However, they could sell classic games in the Switch eShop, but not under the VC banner. Though, like I said, I don't see it happening, especially if they want to use games from other systems besides the NES as a selling point for NSO.

  25. Man, I love that 2-row setup for game/app icons (it's what I use on 3DS). I'd love to have the ability to resize icons like on 3DS. *Sigh* Once again Nintendo is letting hackers out do them with features on the Switch...Features we should have already had by now, none the less. I was hoping we'd get themes, folders, etc. in the 6.0.0 update, but it seems Nintendo was solely focused on NOS with that update. Hopefully we'll see themes, folders, etc. in the next update.
