The Christmas Power Glove (A Silly Flash Fiction)

I could do anything with the Christmas Power Glove. Decorate trees, bake gingerbread cookies, send letters to Santa… inscribe my name on the moon. Woah, wait a minute, I’m letting this get to my head, it’s too much. I’m not saying I’m blaming him, but I had a bad feeling when the glove shot 10-foot streams of fire and melted the snowman someone had made behind my car on the driveway. His carrot… Read the rest

The Last Friend is a Great New Game With Dog Buddies Out Now

In between monitoring my every action, eShop suggested I check out what demos were out. I had really been looking for them though! So, this game The Last Friend showed up as a demo out. The art looked cool and didn’t seem too derivative of anything course. So, I downloaded it and loaded it up. The Last Friend is a brawler kind of game with some turret defense mechanics. Most importantly, however, is… Read the rest

5 Cool Indie Switch Games in 2021

I’ve been meditating on a few game on my Switch that I simply didn’t have a lot to say about but that I enjoyed playing. I recorded some gameplay and present it to you here with some short thoughts on some good, even popular, but fully engrossing with no absolution for full-length articles. So, as you my guess, you’re in for a treat. (P.S. The numerical order of the games has no significance… Read the rest

Minecraft is The Best Game to Inspire Creativity Ever

Minecraft rocks. It blocks and rolls. I first played this game around I want to say 2009. People in my social circle were going bonkers for this game. Or “bonkies” as I now want to say, but that’s unrelated. I was really hesitant because it seemed to short-circuit my interest in sandbox gameplay with how I felt about low-res graphics. It’s basically still that way, but this is one of the most popular… Read the rest

Carto: Pieces of the Map is a Terrific Exploration Indie You Need to Try

Finally, my love of tile board games like Carcassonne has been revived. But it’s completely different mind you. Carto is a tile-placement puzzle released to much praise last year. My first impressions were very positive, but I set them aside until today. It’s a terrific game! While it’s probably the best adjective, I’m not really fond of describing games as cute anymore, because there are so many vocabularic adjectives for a game of… Read the rest

Yoshi’s Crafted World is A Beautiful Cardboard Dream

I had to remember how to play this game, but once I did I remembered how carefree it is to play this game, a nice array of forgiving obstacles and high attention to detail in its very particular artistic style. I meant to write something about it a while ago, but I kept overthinking it. Today I have some videos, screenshots, and seasoned thoughts on Yoshi’s Crafted World. What is Yoshi’s Crafted World?… Read the rest

Knights and Bikes is the Best Game About Adventure & Imagination

I knew when I read the description of Knights and Bikes on the Nintendo eShop page, and the bounty of awards adorning it, that this was probably going to be pretty cool. It explores some great themes like imagination, curiosity, and adventure. Also, it’s about finding those adventures in a place you don’t need to journey far to find. I’ll be exploring some of these topics in my experience with Knights and Bikes,… Read the rest

Nintendo Switch Review: Is it Worth It?

I read a headline today that said that, this holiday season, the Nintendo Switch outsold XBox and Playstation 4-1. The Switch is a nice candidate for such a purchase, since it is about $200 cheaper than the next gen console alternatives, but there are some other advantages as well besides price. Recently, I talked about how the Wii U made me re-enter the world of gaming and this site earlier this year. What… Read the rest

Super Mario 3D All-Stars is The Ultimate Mario Game

This is my best–and one and only–article about Super Mario. Indie games, step aside for a moment. Super Mario 3D All-Stars for all parties interested, is a special release from Nintendo this year for the Switch which contains three classic Mario games spruced up for HD and available for a limited time offer in physical as well as digital form. They’re serious about the limited time too, which has some scratching their heads… Read the rest

The LEGO Harry Potter Game Is The Best LEGO Game

Welcome to Hogwarts! Okay, it usually takes a chapter to get there in the books, but the welcome is there. I’m about to tell you about one of the most fan-driven franchises you’ve ever heard of, “Harry Potter!” Oh, you’ve heard of that one…? Okay… Have you ever heard of “LEGO!” That one too? Okay, GOOD!? It’s time for my LEGO Harry Potter poetic ode. I’m not totally certain when it started, but… Read the rest

Animal Crossing is the Best Popular Cozy Game Still

It is time. Animals are crossing in the Animal Crossing, peaches are gonna roll. I got started with this game earlier this month. It is the quintessential non-violent, casual, time-passing game in this year. This game is for Nintendo Switch only! I should have mentioned that. In fact, this game is essentially the major reason I now have a Nintendo Switch. There are so many good games for Switch that are perfectly mindful… Read the rest
