Star Fox Armada

Did You Know Gaming has uncovered Star Fox Armada, something that was once pitched internally for Wii U by former Retro Studios artist Eric Kozlowsky.

PowerWash Simulator review

System: Switch
Release Date: January 31, 2023
Developer: FuturLab
Publisher: Square Enix


At various points during my time with FutureLab and Square Enix’s PowerWash Simulator, I was struck by a sort of banal existential dilemma. During these episodes of clairvoyance, I’d become blisteringly aware of the fact that in the only physical lifetime I will ever have – in my one and single corporeal opportunity – I was opting to blast a digital stream of H2O across a fictional individual’s RV/bungalow/penny farthing. Did these sudden jolts of awareness drive me to get up and do something “worthwhile” with my time instead? No, no they didn’t. PowerWash Simulator has its hooks in me now, and I’m shackled to these blue overalls by a mix of catharsis and compulsion – but boy does it feel so good. Truth be told, this isn’t even a new development. I’ve been a slave to the machinations of the game’s grubby world since it originally launched into Steam’s Early Access model. Valve’s digital storefront seemingly recognized how dull of an individual I am, and algorithmically shoved the game in my face on the day of its release – so that was my original date of incarceration. With the game now arriving triumphantly on Switch, it feels like PowerWash Simulator has reached its final form. It’s ready to engulf your attention in ways we haven’t seen since paid actors sat slack-jawed in front of SNES’s during 90s video game commercials.

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Switch exclusive

Master Detective Archives: Rain Code writer Kazutaka Kodaka has spoken a bit about having the game be Switch-exclusive. His comments came about as part of an interview published a little while back by Denfaminicogamer.

Spike Chunsoft revealed Master Detective Archives: Rain Code for Switch in a previous Nintendo Direct. The news may have been surprising for some as Kodaka’s previous series, Danganronpa, was largely associated with PlayStation.

A new month started up this week. Now that we’re in February, we want to know what you’ve been playing.

Have you been playing Fire Emblem Engage? Or how about GoldenEye 007 on Nintendo Switch Online? Maybe you’re catching up on something you have in your backlog? No matter the case, let us know in the comments below.

Risen review

System: Switch
Release date: January 24, 2023
Developer: Piranha Bytes
Publisher: THQ Nordic


Risen is a peculiar beast. This action RPG originally graced our consoles back in 2009, where it served as something of an amalgamation of various different western franchises. It featured moral conundrums akin to Mass Effect, a lush open world reminiscent of Fable, and systems that wouldn’t seem out of place in an Elder Scrolls title. The game has garnered a bit of a cult following across the community since its original release (and the release of its two sequels). With Risen’s arrival on Switch – along with the measured benefit of hindsight – have THQ Nordic and Piranha Bytes graced us with a hidden RPG gem? Or has age diminished the game’s quirky, ethereal appeal?

System: Switch
Release Date: February 2, 2023
Developer: ISVR
Publisher: Astrolabe Games


Active DBG: Brave’s Rage is a little misleading. With cute characters and popping colors, what I expected to be a walk in the park pocket RPG is actually a grueling system that takes time and significant effort to master. Fast-paced fights coupled with roguelite mechanics makes for a bit of a steep learning curve, but the tutorial’s combat and defensive basics are drilled early – and there’s a reason you’re forced to play the tutorial when first starting the game: you need to learn these mechanics. You need to know all of the tools in your arsenal to make it through and come out victorious. The “perfect block” is especially useful in aiding survivability, but is that alone enough to get your champion(s) through with their lives?
