Digimon Survive review

System: Switch
Release Date: July 29, 2022
Developer: Hyde
Publisher: Bandai Namco


From the Digimon tri. films to the dark Cyber Sleuth games, Digimon has seen renewed life in recent years with its new focus and emphasis on more somber tones and older, relatable characters. It’s no surprise then that Digimon Survive would once again continue this new vision and provide what is interestingly its most thought-provoking entry yet. The game features a deep and rich story, and it’s all implemented within a tactical RPG that’s rewarding, engaging, and worthy of the Digimon name.

The Splatoon 3 Direct aired this week and it was quite the doozy. In its 30-minute presentation, Nintendo shared a ton of details about the upcoming Switch exclusive.

We got a look at new battle stages, new maneuvers, and new weapons. The three main modes were also given a new look with the single-player Story Mode, “Return of the Mammalians”, Turf War, and Salmon Run. We also know have confirmation that Splatfests are back, but now with three teams instead of two plus Tricolor Turf War battles. We also got some new reveals with the Deep Cut trio, new amiibo, Tableturf Battle, and more. You can catch up on the full recap here.

Now that we’re a few days removed from the Splatoon 3 Direct, how did you feel about the presentation? What are your overall feelings on the game in general? Let us know in the comments.

Join your hosts Nick, Nicolas and Dennis as they unpack all of the major reveals from the latest Pokemon Presents showcase, including what the heck is up with this new “Terastilizing” thing. They’ll also discuss all the major news tidbits from Nintendo’s latest financial reports (it’s more exciting than it sounds, we promise) including whether or not the Switch shortage is coming to an end. After that, stick around for some conversation surrounding some recently announced Switch games, including the not-so-surprising reveal of Tactics Ogre: Reborn.

Hindsight review

System: Switch
Release Date: August 4, 2022
Developer: Team Hindsight
Publisher: Annapurna Interactive


A few months back, Nintendo Everything was invited to a personal discussion and presentation regarding Hindsight with developers Joel McDonald and Emma Kidwell, courtesy of Annapurna, which gave us a closer look at their new outing in wanting to provide a palpable and intimate story of life, its values, and the things we hold dear (and why). It was an insightful showcase that opened our eyes, and the eagerness to experience more of the protagonist Mary’s timeline of events only grew with each passing thought. Now after a three-hour playthrough before rolling credits on Hindsight, it’s arguably one of the most authentic, relatable, and well-established narratives on the topic in quite some time.

A new month started up a few days ago. Now that we’re in August, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Are you playing some of the big RPGs to release on Switch recently in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 or Live A Live? How about other recent games like Digimon Survive? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

[Review] Live A Live

Posted on 5 months ago by in Reviews, Switch | 0 comments

Live A Live review

System: Switch
Release Date: July 22, 2022
Developer: Square Enix / Historia
Publisher: Square Enix


Back in the days of the SNES, it wasn’t uncommon for games to never see a western release, remaining land-locked to their native Japan. This was relatively common in the case of JRPGs, an arguably oversaturated genre at the time that remained relatively niche in the west. Even new installments of big flagship franchises like Square Enix’s (then Squaresoft) Final Fantasy series didn’t always make it overseas. It’s no surprise then that some of Square’s less well-known JRPGs ended up falling through the cracks, one of these being Live A Live. Live A Live was originally released in 1994 and had even been initially planned as a worldwide release before underwhelming sales prospects in Japan caused those localization plans to be scrapped. But with the game now receiving an unexpected remake, it’s gotten a new lease on life and a long overdue international release, letting everyone experience this presumed classic. That being said, how well does the game truly hold up today? And were the improvements made to this remake enough to bring it up to a more modern standard?

Nintendo has continued to to drip-feed exciting new announcements over the past few weeks, and that trend continues with the recent reveal of Wave 2 of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe’s DLC courses. Join Nick, Nicolas and Luiz as they discuss all the exciting throwback tracks arriving in the game in only a few days, and whether or not all these Mario Kart Tour corses being ported over is a good thing. Then, stick around for our impressions of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, some exciting new ports coming to Switch from publisher Annapurna Interactive, and more!

xenoblade chronicles 3 is here

After a not so long wait since its announcement, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has arrived. Personally speaking, this is a very special game to me as it’s the third entry in what is probably my favorite franchise from Nintendo.

It’s a bit unusual for me to publish those “first impressions” videos, but I really felt like there’s a lot to talk about the initial hours of this game. So in the video below, you’ll find a huge Xenoblade fan talking about how good Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has been so far. Feel free to share your own experience with the game as well.
