Jon was looking for a single player game to dig into recently, and he settled on a sequel to a JRPG he burnt out on the first time. Will the sequel do the same? Read on to find out.Read More
Warhammer: Vermintide 2 is like original but better. Its like Left 4 Dead but with more stuff. But, its also like Destiny 2 but cheaper with more classes and abilities.Read More
"Destined to fail."
That’s one way of describing Into the Breach.
Just to clarify; it’s not the game that’s destined to fail.
It is you that is destined to fail. A lot.Read More
Kingdom Come Deliverance is a perfect example of something that talks a big place, but ultimately, falls short of lots of its aspirations. There are great moments of immersion derailed by inconsistent systems and gameplay mechanics.Read More
Let me regale you with the story of another Kickstarter that I've backed - CROSSNIQ+
This game hits a certain aesthetic for me, in the vein of Lumines (which I have spent countless hours on in multiple formats) with it's bright, bold colors and awesome techno-pop elevator music.
Plus they're looking into a Switch version, and I couldn't afford missing out on that.
You can play the demo here (play in your browser or download the demo)
Jon's been reliving late 90's nostalgia and trying to see if he can still "rock the dragon." He's also been playing the latest fighting game from the Guilty Gear folks.Read More
I've loved the 10 months or so that I've spent with my Switch, but there are a handful of accessories that have made our time together a little bit easier, so I want to share those with you in case you want to enhance your Switch experience.
(I'm not clever enough to get paid for these advertisements, so just tell us thank you on Twitter or something)
Best investment I've made outside of the console or games. Makes playing on the TV way more immersive than the Joycons.
Basically a required acquisition. You need a place to install downloadable games, your game saves, and even cartridge based games install onto the system (which only has about 25GB left over from the OS, so you'll run out quick).
If you plan on going anywhere with your Switch (why wouldn't you?) then hopefully you have a case to keep it safe and secure. The Switch is a nicely designed piece of kit, but it's not a robust as the designed-for-mobility systems like the Vita or 3DS.
This is the model that I bought, but there may be better options out there now. It is really nice to be able to plug in to a TV on the go without having to carry the full sized dock or removing it from your home system. It's a tiny piece that fits into the carrying case I have listed below.
Depending on a second dock you buy, maybe it's not required, but it's nice to have another to charge around the house with.
Mostly for the Pro Controller, but you could use these with a battery pack as well if it can output enough juice for the system itself on the go.
For the minimal investment, I think these are worth the buy to keep your screen clear from scratches. While I haven't had the issue with the dock scratching the screen, this ensures I'll never have that problem.
Jon's played 25 hours of an Early Access game on Steam in about a week. He's about at the breaking point though.....Read More
