Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great game play. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
Katamari Damacy Reroll is one of those games that for some reason I could never get out of my head. I only played it once many years ago when I was visiting a friend who had a hacked Wii and had a ton of strange games from Japan. So when I stumbled across it in EBGames' used game section I was extremely excited! I didn't even realize that it had come out for the Switch!
If that opening scene wasn't enough of a hint at how ridiculous the game can be just play a little and you'll soon realize that the opening scene is a perfect representation of the whole game.
The whole point of the game is that your father, the creator of the universe, has destroyed all the stars in the sky. In order to get them back you need to roll up larger Katamari's (the ball that you're rolling) that are turned into stars IF you meet the requirements.
While the storyline of the game may not be the most captivating thing I've played, the game play itself did manage to keep my attention the whole way through. The breakdown of each level is basically just to roll a big enough Katamari (ball) to pass in the allotted timeframe. That being said each level does offer a new set of challenges whether it's the location, environment or starting size. There was a couple of levels that I got stuck on and found myself thinking about how I can get past them even while trying to sleep.
Even with the struggles I did come across completing this game it still took me under a week to complete the whole thing. For a full priced game that would not be ok in my books but luckily it only cost about a third of what most games on Nintendo Switch tend to run. That plus the fact that I can say without question that I will play it more in the future makes me feel content with the purchase. Especially since there is a multiplayer mode that I have yet to delve into. (it appears to be a "get bigger than your opponent first to roll them into your Katamari).
So, with trying to make sure I take out my personal memories around the game, I think it's something worth picking up.
Would I suggest paying more than $30 for it? Probably not. Mainly because of how short the game is more than anything really. It's a fantastic time waster that is super easy to pick up and pause whenever. Overall I wouldn't say go hunting for it but if you happen to find it in store make sure you grab it.
Genshin Impact: Gacha gaming that’s… good? I often find myself not knowing quite how to feel about mobile games. While capable of providing cheap thrills and alleviating temporary boredom, they generally don’t possess the sort of staying power more robust console and PC titles do.
Has gaming lost its magic? Are you unable to find a game worth your time? Do you scroll endlessly through your library and waste time watching trailers - but nothing engages you? You might have Gamer's Block! Don't worry though, there's hope for you yet.
The game is a blast to play. I am not one who tends to play these competitive first person shooters but I'm starting to think maybe I should be spending more time playing them. I did get better over the course of playing but still got obliterated each round. Some of that was due to glitching in the game but generally it was just me.
I don't play a lot of competitive first person shooters. Call of Duty specifically I haven't played since high school. That made getting Beta access to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a little nerve wracking. I figured that I should record my first attempt at playing this game so that you can what it's all about
I bet there is a number of you out there who are going "Finally a third Pikmin!" Well sorry to burst your bubble but the game has actually been out for a long while. Whether you've never played the third game or just haven't touched it in a while the free demo in the Nintendo Store is worth the download!
Although the game came out 9 years ago it still has a lot of playability today. Whether you're just trying to find areas that you've never explored or creating a whole new build opposite or what you normally play there's numerous ways to keep you interested. With the addition of the Amiibo it can be even more exciting.
The game reminds me of a classic arcade side scroller game but with an upgraded 3D depth to the scenery. Flying in a plane (that can also fly underwater?) while shooting the things that come onto the screen to stay alive and hopefully upgrade as you go!
While we are awaiting the sequel in the much beloved “Breath of the Wild” series Nintendo surprised us with a prequel! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you play through the war in the years previous to the adventure we’ve come to love. Get through Hyrule as any of the previous heroes!
Nintendo has adamantly stated that the DS would not be brought to an end because of the Switch. This was hard to believe as the Nintendo Switch is very similar to the DS consoles. Staying true to their word for much longer than anticipated their latest update may bring an end to the DS.
In Control, you take on the character of Jesse Faden, a no-nonsense redhead out to discover the whereabouts of her missing brother. She tracks a lead, or rather her intuition leads her outside the doors of a semi-secret government organization known as the Federal Bureau of Control.
As I played through Horizon Zero Dawn, Guerilla Games first foray into the action rpg genre, I found myself struck with that same slack-jawed wonder that transpired in my youth when I explored the likes of Hyrule, Reach, the Mass Effect universe. A series of unrelenting moments so perfectly crafted

Haven announces its self straight out of the gate as a unique, vibrant story with powerful characters and a game world that begs to be explored. It has a lot to say in such a short demo. This is our review.
One of the classic games of my youth, Spore. I find about once a year I get the urge to stay up the game again and work my way through the evolutionary track and try to fight my way to the center of the universe. If you've never heard of the game you might want to look into it.
With Paper Mario:The Origami King coming out right away it might be worth a refresher of all the games that have already come out in the series. Whether you've been religiously following the series or, like myself, missed the last couple give yourself a refresher on the paper peoples past!
