Since its launch in 2017, everyone expected The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to be influential in the gaming industry. The title received a rare level of praise and brought a new life to the “open-world” genre.

Breath of the Wild is almost five years old and we can already witness how it has influenced some games in different ways. In today’s video, I try to pinpoint the new things that the title brought to the table and how it inspired other developers. You can check the video down below.

[Review] Maglam Lord

Posted on 2 years ago by in Reviews, Switch | 0 comments

Maglam Lord review

System: Switch
Release date: February 4, 2022
Developer: Felistella
Publisher: PQube

As a Demon Lord, Killizerk is a bit unique in that they can equip legendary Maglam weapons, a skill that is seemingly unique to human heroes. After being hunted down as a threat to all existence for this ability, Killizerk awakens in a peaceful future after being resurrected by loyal retainers. Gone are the gods and demon lords of old, and Killizerk is promptly labeled an endangered species that must be preserved at all cost. No longer can they hunt humans for magical energy or cause chaos for fun – this world now focuses on peace for all, and that means keeping icky monsters out of towns and working towards harmony for the humans, heroes of yore, and our surviving demon lord.

mario 64 banjo kazooie 3d platformers

Banjo-Kazooie and Super Mario 64 are both at this moment available to play on Switch via Nintendo’s online service. It’s great to see those two together considering how important they were for early 3D gaming. I decided to revisit them recently and I was impressed by how well they still hold up.

In today’s video, I talk about the different ideas that Banjo-Kazooie and Super Mario 64 brought to the industry, how they understood the best ways to bring the full potential of 3D environments, and also how they failed in some aspects due to how early ideas and the technology were at the time. You can check the video down below.

Metroid Dread E.M.M.I.

In a lengthy interview with Japanese magazine Famitsu, series producer Yoshio Sakamoto shared a peak behind the curtain on Metroid Dread’s development including the E.M.M.I. mechanic as well as memories of his time working on the series.

Sakamoto has been involved with the franchise since its inception on the NES. In the interview, he touched on what it was like to work with MercurySteam to create the series’ first HD entry, went into the specifics of E.M.M.I.’s design, and much more.

Our full translation of the interview can be found below.

We only just received a major Pokemon release on Switch with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl back in November, but another major title has now arrived with Pokemon Legends: Arceus. This is the latest project from Game Freak, the developer of the mainline Pokemon titles. The company has been tinkering away on Arceus while ILCA made Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

While the launch of Pokemon Legends: Arceus only took place yesterday, it’s likely that a number of you picked up the game and have played a number of hours already. If you’ve played it at all, what are your thoughts thus far? Let us know in the comments below.

Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth review

System: Switch
Release date: January 28, 2022
Developer: Team Ladybug
Publisher: Playism

Record of Lodoss War is one of the oldest still-running Japanese series a lot of people have probably never heard about. With media that includes not only video games but novels, manga, and anime, the franchise’s history dates back over three decades to 1986. While Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth is the newest installment in the series, it’s also nostalgic in a lot of ways, from its beautiful 2D pixel art style to its story.
