If you are a gamer with a Nintendo Switch then a memory boost from a external source is pretty much a must.
Okay, so I’ll start off by saying that I think the Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask 3d remakes are some of the best remasters/remakes that I’ve played. I don’t say this with lack of experience with video games, I have been playing games since the days of Vectorman and Streets of Rage (please search Vectorman if you haven’t heard of it).
Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King is an admirable and fun action adventure that borrows many of its elements from the 2D Zelda titles. In fact ‘borrows’ might be a slight understatement as the game replicates the structure of A Link to the Past in every respect apart from lacking the same amount of dungeons.
Of the big three hardware manufacturers, Nintendo has the longest and richest history in terms of its retro content. The NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, and Wii provided some of the best games of their respective generations, and so did Nintendo’s highly successful handhelds. But now that we know that the Virtual Console is gone for good, how are we going to access this content?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now out on the Nintendo Switch. Then, at The Game Awards, Nintendo announced a new character for the roster: Joker from Persona 5. It’s not uncommon for Super Smash Bros. to include characters whose main games are not on a Nintendo console.
From Kool2Play, I’d overlooked Hyperide: Vector Raid when it dropped onto the Switch eShop as of November 21st. But then I saw it was promising a super-fast space jaunt with shooting elements and obstacle-laden, multi-dimensional maps inspired by 80’s movies and naming Tron in Particular. I suddenly found myself quite enticed.
Laugh-out-loud funny, cleverly written and with some of the best gags in gaming, West of Loathing is a must for fans of games on the comedy side, with references to anything from Monty Python to previous Asymmetric titles included in one western-style bundle.
