Have a Nice Death review

System: Switch
Release Date: March 22, 2023
Developer: Magic Design Studios
Publisher: Gearbox

Typically, when I’m craving some side-scrolling action, roguelike games aren’t my go-to. Simple procedurally generated levels, frustrating or unrewarding progression loops, and by-the-numbers combat have plagued my experiences in the genre, so I’m perhaps a bit more skeptical than others of run-based titles. Fortunately, Have a Nice Death is not only an exception to this trend, but also one of the tightest, most creative, and most satisfying roguelikes I’ve ever played. It’s an example of what a talented team with a strong vision can accomplish, and its fine-tuned concoction of charm and challenge resulted in constant fun.

It’s finally happened: the 3DS and Wii U eShops are no more. While this has been a bummer for many of us, in this week’s episode of Nintendo Everything Refresh, we’re looking back on some of our favorite memories from Nintendo’s last-gen systems, reflecting on the games that impacted us the most, and sharing our thoughts on how these amazing systems will be remembered in the future. We’ll also dive into some of the big games announced or released over the past few weeks, including LEGO 2K Drive, Bayonetta Origins, and much more!

Stick around for some conversation about Wii U’s that are mysteriously breaking, the new RoboCop game, and more!

Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse review

System: Switch
Release Date: March 9, 2023
Developer: Koei Tecmo
Publisher: Nintendo

After a whopping 15 years, the fourth mainline entry in the Fatal Frame franchise is finally accessible for English-speaking players for the first time, and as such, the release of Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse feels like something of an event for horror fans. These games have long been singular experiences, possessing a unique weight that is felt in each footstep, each click of a camera shutter, each piece of unsettling lore. I was excited to finally have a chance to experience this acclaimed piece of horror history on a modern platform, and to see why fans have been begging for a localization for so long. While I enjoyed unraveling the weaving, sinister story threads of Mask of the Lunar Eclipse and soaking in its atmosphere, the game’s unrefined pacing and desperate need for extra polish should make casual horror fans pause.
