Three Reasons Why Ace Attorney Trilogy Rules Switch

by Neal Ronaghan - 12:01 am PDT

As Ace Attorney Trilogy comes to Switch, we fondly remember why Phoenix Wright rocks.

The Phoenix Wright games have always been an enjoyable and bizarre style of visual novel that have overwhelmingly appealed to me despite generally ignoring the genre otherwise. When replaying the first three games, now out on Nintendo Switch in shiny HD style, I was trying to nail why these games... Read more...

Alex breaks down some of the more interesting games he saw at this year's PAX East.

This year marked my eighth PAX East with Nintendo World Report, and my third hosting a panel (this year’s was on Animal Crossing!), so it’s safe to say that this time around, I know what I’m getting into. PAX East is a place where you play cool indie games, stand in long lines, and people-watch all the people in cool cosplay.

Nicalis: 2019's April Fool WiiU

Using April Fools Day to break a multi-year silence on a game people already paid for is outrageously disrespectful.

April Fools Day is a minefield of our own creation; brands throw out “ideas” into the world that are obviously farcical, selling us on the prospects of a vegan-friendly Doom sequel or a new Atari console in 2019. Social media just gave companies more tools to wear these jokes into dust. At their best, April Fools jokes can be a chance to laugh with your audience.

Discuss in talkback!

A deeper look into Smash’s newest Adventure Mode.

With each new iteration of Super Smash Bros, once the dust settles of who’s on the roster, the conversation shifts to single player. Of course we can expect Classic mode and other franchise staples, but when it comes to the premiere single player experience, the series has been trying to replicate... Read more...

More Curio Than Modern Classic, Sega Ages Phantasy Star Is A Must for Sega and RPG Fans Switch

by Neal Ronaghan - 12:00 am PST

The best way to play a classic yet dated '80s RPG.

If I had come across Phantasy Star when I was younger, I think my recent visit to the Algol solar system would have been a lot rosier. Originally released in America on the Master System in 1988, Phantasy Star was one of the better console RPGs of its era. The turn-based combat was solid, the first-person dungeon-exploring was engaging, and the story was good even though it suffered a little bit from the limitations of the Master System.

Toki: A Reason to Dine Out Switch

by Justin Berube - 9:28 am PST
Discuss in talkback!

Remember wanting to go to the restaurants with the cool arcade games?

As a kid, going out to eat always seemed like a minor special event. I loved ordering food that was probably terrible for me but tasted great. That alone was probably enough for some kids. Other kids, myself included at times, were also persuaded to go to the eateries that provided the coolest toys. However, one thing that drove me to a few local places was their arcade games.

The Poké Ball Plus: Cumbersome Yet Charming Switch

by Neal Ronaghan - 4:35 am PST

Maybe the Poké Ball Plus is a bad controller, but if it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right.

The control methods of Pokémon Let’s Go deserve to be called out for being limiting and restrictive. Little to no customization exists here and the only way to play the game without any motion controls is handheld-only. All of these controls seem to be in service of the gimmicky addition to Let’s...
