Last year at PAX East, I encountered a difficult game that I immediately fell in love with, Thumper. Something about this difficult, rhythm-based game hooked me and wouldn’t let go, while it was constantly punching me in the face. I loved it.

Drool’s ‘smash’ hit Thumper released the indomitable Krakhed into the world at the end of last year. While it has been a blast on the standard home console, I have always felt that it would be a good game to take with you, and rock out with on the go. While it is no major surprise since it has already been announced, Thumper is coming to the Nintendo Switch. However, today the release date has bee...[Read More]
Last year at PAX East, one of my favorite games of the show was a rhythm hell violence game called Thumper. This show favorite carried over to one of my favorite full titles of the year, where I couldn’t put the game down while reviewing it. My only qualm was that it was for PC, and my gaming laptop couldn’t run it perfectly. (Yes I know it is also out for PS4, but I don’t have one.) This Spring, ...[Read More]
