‘Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together!’ Review: Fun And Frustration

3 hours ago

Let's all face it, there's not much to do yet on the Nintendo Switch that doesn't involve Hyrule. The launch titles were pretty bare, with most being ports -- Including Zelda, which was developed for the Wii U. One title that stood out, even on launch day, was Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together, a co-operative puzzle game that served also as a tech demo of what the Switch's Joy Cons could do. While not as demonstrative as, say, 1-2 Switch, Snipperclips served as a good break game when the quest to defeat Ganon became too much.

In Snipperclips: Cut It Out, Together, players take control of two (or more) little paper characters named Snip and Clip, and then use the Joy Cons to manipulate those characters to solve various simple puzzles. Players can rotate Snip and Clip, or squat them down, or make them stand on their tippy-toes, and even jump, »

‘Anoxemia’ Review: Remember To Breathe

4 hours ago

I truly enjoy playing indie games. Indies typically have smaller budgets, which forces creativity over splash, and a true gem can often be unearthed in the simplest of concepts. In Anoxemia, the new game from developer Bsk Games and publisher BadLand Games, that indie spirit holds true as players are tasked with exploring the bottom of the ocean for specific plant life with only a companion drone named Atma, and the mission takes some very twisted turns as the need for oxygen is constant, and the dangers of the deep are ever present.

Anoxemia is the story of a scientist named Dr. Bailey who must collect plant samples in a stretch of the ocean polluted by the tools of a devastating war. When Bailey's sub crashes on the bottom, he must continue the mission at all costs, by collecting scattered oxygen tanks and avoiding mines, jellyfish, harsh undercurrents, and so »

‘2Dark’ Review: Think Of The Children

5 hours ago

The new game 2Dark started out as a crowdfunded title that hit its goal, and the game's director, Frederick Raynal (Alone in the Dark), with little oversight, was able to create the game he wanted without pause. What he and Gloomywood, the developer, have come up with is an amalgam of different game styles all focused on the survival horror genre, and even though it looks cutesy, 2Dark is from from it.

The story of 2Dark focuses on a cop named Smith, who, years before, took his family on a camping trip that ended with his wife brutally murdered and his kids abducted. Now, Smith is a detective on the case of some missing children, a case that will take Smith to some very dark and scary places, both figuratively and literally, as he tries to save the children from being slaughtered using only his wits, some spotty stealth mechanics, »

‘The Disney Afternoon Collection’ Announced

10 hours ago

If you grew up in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s you likely watched Disney cartoons after school. Starting with the Gummi Bears in 1985, then Duck Tales (my personal favorite) in 1987, and many more followed, each with a different take on classic Disney movie characters. In 1989 Capcom worked out a deal to make Nes games with all of the Disney Afternoon cartoons. Their first was Duck Tales and it was amazing. The graphics and music pushed what the Nes could do.

Next month, on April 18, Capcom is releasing six of these classic games for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, with The Disney Afternoon Collection. DuckTales was published in 1989, Rescue Rangers in 1990, TaleSpin in 1991, Darkwing Duck in 1992, DuckTales 2 in 1993, and Rescue Rangers 2 in 1994, and they are all here in their original 8-bit versions remastered for HD.

Some small changes include the ability to rewind time in-game, sort of like Braid, a »

‘Blaster Master Zero’ Review: Blast From The Past

12 hours ago

I was almost 11-years-old on Christmas day, 1988, and I still remember getting one of my favorite Nes games, Blaster Master by Sunsoft. From the amazing intro, to the original gameplay, Blaster Master was so different than any previous titles I had played. It was like two games in one, a side scrolling vehicle mode, with its oddly responsive controls, and when outside of your vehicle to a top down dungeon crawler. Now almost 30 years later, developer Inti Creates has brought Blaster Master Zero to the newest Nintendo console, the Switch, and I couldn't be happier.

A remake and re-imagining, Blaster Master Zero brings this classic and underappreciated game to a new generation. Players control a young boy named Jason as he follows his runaway pet frog down a mysterious hole that leads to a whole new dimension. There he finds an odd looking tank with wheels, called Sophia III, and must blast, »

‘Othello’ Review: Simple — Maybe Too Simple

27 March 2017 4:41 PM, PDT

I love Othello. I first started playing the game on the Atari 2600, as the simple concept was incredibly easy to learn, yet very hard to master. Othello was originally called Reversi until Mattel trademarked the name "Othello" for a board game version. The game, under either name, has been around since the late 1800s, proving that the concept is timeless.

Othello is played with two players, on a 8 x 8 grid, with 64 pieces, one side black, the other side white. Players try to "capture" (or make one color) the pieces on the board by placing their tokens around the other players' pieces. The winner is determined by how many spaces are occupied once all the spaces are covered, or if the other player's pieces are all captured. It's part checkers, part Mahjong, part chess, and all strategy.

Now, Othello is available for the Nintendo Switch as an eShop game, and the »
