T-Spins. 3-1 Stairs. These are just a couple terms that meant nothing to me before I began Puyo Puyo Tetris on the Nintendo Switch for the first time. Soon thereafter, I couldn’t stop chasing these elusive terms that, when completed, earned you a ton of points and helped raise your score just that much higher.

It goes without saying that the Nintendo Switch launch line up was a bit dry other than the monumental success that was Breath of the Wild. Yet, there was another game that was a must have on day one for a lot of my retro gaming buddies, Super Bomberman R.

First things first, I admit, I was swept up by the hype. Yep, it’s hard not to get excited with how well Nintendo marketed the Switch initially. The first reveal was awesome and even though many industry veterans knew what to expect, that first teaser was powerful. I’ve always loved handheld gaming systems and have always imagined what one would be like with the full power (or at least...[Read More]

Back in the days of the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo, there was a little game a buddy of mine had that sparked hours upon hours of fun, Bomberman. Bomberman’s setup was incredibly simple, bomb the other players and avoid blowing up yourself. However, it remained a nightly game that we continued to pull out for many months, quickly being one of our favorite games on the Sega Genesis. More ...[Read More]

More so as I count down the hours to order one for myself, with even more hype as I think about taking the Nintendo Switch with me to PAX East in March. So now the question lies, do I pick the Gray or Neon Nintendo Switch?
Though there was no information or details on title, eagle-eyed viewers can spot a Dragon Ball Z fighting game that was shown during the final trailer during the Nintendo Switch Presentation.
