Mario Rabbids Sparks of Hope preview

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle was one the plucky plumber’s most unexpected and off-the-wall adventures in a long time when it released in 2017; it quickly became one of my favorite games on the Switch thanks to its simple but satisfying tactics and its delightfully quirky vibes. I was excited to have the opportunity to play its upcoming sequel, Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope, for nearly four hours at a recent Ubisoft preview event, where I experienced large chunks of the game’s combat, exploration, and story across a handful of different in-game planets. So far, what I’ve played of Sparks of Hope has me feeling confident that the game will be a substantial evolution of everything that made Kingdom Battle so special, and it seems poised to be Mario’s most memorable adventure in quite a while.

Nothing notable at all happened in the gaming industry last week. Nope, absolutely nothing to – wait, hang on, apparently I’m getting word that actually last week was quite possibly one of the biggest weeks for gaming news that we’ve seen all year? And that apparently there was a Nintendo Direct that announced some massive new games, including Pikmin 4 and a brand new Fire Emblem game? And that apparently on top of that some weird niche event called Tokyo Game Show had even more upcoming Switch games to reveal and show off?! Huh – well, I guess it’s time for a new episode of Nintendo Everything Refresh, then! In this jumbo-sized episode, join your hosts Nick, Nicolas and Dennis as they unpack all the news big and small from last week’s whirlwind of game reveals and announcements!

[Review] Temtem

Temtem review

System: Switch
Release Date: September 6, 2022
Developer: Crema
Publisher: Humble Games

I’ve always wished I could be whisked away to a world like Pokemon or Dragon Quest Monsters – a place where I can collect creatures and build bonds. A world of adventure where friendships and hard work can lead to more and more epic battles with stronger and stronger opponents. Monster taming games will have to scratch that itch, for now, and Temtem’s island world has a ton of new creatures to meet and befriend, but will it become another destination for our “lets get reincarnated in another world and catch some monsters” dreams, or will this one be overshadowed by its acclaimed predecessors?

The September 2022 Nintendo Direct aired earlier this week, and we want to hear your reactions and thoughts about the show.

Nintendo closed the event with its biggest game: Zelda. We finally have a full title (Tears of the Kingdom), a release date (May 12), and new footage was shown. Outside of Zelda, Nintendo announced Fire Emblem Engage, Pikmin 4, and Kirby’s Return to Dreamland Deluxe. It also revealed new N64 games for Nintendo Switch Online – including GoldenEye 007 – and shared updates for games like Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Mario Strikers: Battle League.

From third-parties, we got a number of new announcements as well. Some of the games include Octopath Traveler II, Theatrhythm Final Bar Line, and Atelier Ryza 3. Ports and remasters had a presence with the likes of It Takes Two, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, Tunic, Rune Factory 3 Special, and Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life.

This isn’t everything, but you can catch up on the full recap here. In any case, share your thoughts with us in the comments.

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 spoilers

It’s been a while since the release of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, and even though the game is massive, some of us already finished the experience. As it is with a JRPG like this, there’s usually a lot to talk about with regard to the story, exploration, combat and more.

That’s why today’s video is actually a – very long – discussion about Xenoblade Chronicles 3, full of spoilers. If you already played it, feel free to check the video down below and share your own opinions about the game.
