Nintendo at E3

When it comes to learning what's coming out - E3 is basically information Christmas. 

 

I could go through every single item that was mentioned during the event but let's be honest, you won't read that. You might think you will but at best you'll get two pages in and you'll think to yourself "I'm over this". 

Instead let's break it up into categories and items in those categories will get a more in-depth look in the future. Click here to see all our articles about E3. 


Let's dig into Nintendo.

No Man's Sky. This game has gone through hoops to get to where it is today.

Nothing like the original release, NMS is a game that might just eat up every spare second you have.

Not only due to Covid keeping people at home but for so many other reasons Mario Party has not had the option to play against people who aren't sitting right next to you.

Free games tend to be a large hit or miss market. There are some out there that are far too fun and should be charging something. While others aren’t worth the time it takes to download them. Bait is something that falls into the category of being worth the effort.

Oculus Quest 2 Review

by Sandoozee . March 06, 2021

The initial hurdles of getting into the system can be frustrating. Honestly something that I found a little frustrating was attempting to read my WIFI password and enter it into the VR headset although I can only see where I am typing when I have the headset on. Aside from that the main struggles were just related to learning how to properly function with a headset on. The controls are very comfortable and easy to use making the process easier. After getting past that I got sucked into using the headset way way too much.

There are a few games that are a major part of my childhood and Mario 64 is one of the top games of the “throwback” category to me. I remember spending hours trying to get through the simplest of tasks and I'm glad to say that as an adult the game is not so intimidating. Updated with smoother controls really elevates the gameplay to something a lot more enjoyable.

Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Throwback

by Sandoozee . February 14, 2021

So a review of this game would be kinda absolutely useless based on the age of it. It’s been out forever so instead it lands as a Throwback to all those old games that bring back wonderful childhood memories. Much like Super Mario 64, I recall playing Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 obsessively as a child. Although it might not hold up as well as some games, the nostalgia is always nice.
