A lot of old school this week, though some of it will repeat next week.

In what I thought would be an incredibly quiet week before checking the Canadian game list and then re-checking the US one, it was surprisingly difficult to come up with a main game - NIS America's classics collection (containing Soul Nomad and Phantom Brave) put up a brave front, but we'll give the...

I would quote this week's major protagonist but Travis Touchdown would prevent us from keeping this space rated E.

Travis touches down one more time on the Switch this week as the world's leading assassin takes his act to SPAAAAAAAAAACE in the week's major release, No More Heroes III. The game voted too hot for Treehouse drops Friday, but if you're looking for something with just as much murder but want to take it slow, may we recommend King's Bounty II on Tuesday.
