As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago in Last Week’s Gaming, I picked up a very cheap Minesweeper game on the eShop. I thought “It’s only a dollar. Might be OK.”
Well, fair to say Minesweeper Genius has surprised me a lot. And I think it will surprise you as well.
I’ve talked about it long enough, and here it is – my review of The Outer Worlds. I don’t go deep into gameplay, but I have a bit to say about the Switch port – mainly I don’t seem to have the same problems others have. I suspect it’s my SD card? I talk about it in the review.
Have a great weekend everyone!
So I didn’t get to play much Outer Worlds this week, so that review is still a little ways away. But I did pick up a new game for the Switch on sale. It won’t be for everyone, but if you enjoy playing Poker, Texas Holdem, Blackjack and/or Page One but don’t like playing online, then The Card may be a game for you.
It does give The Game a run for its money as the worst searchable game title though! Seriously, who thought that finding The Card Switch would show this title?
As I wrote last week, I was really excited Blood Rage was getting a digital implemntation. After having a few games up my sleeve both physical and digital, I thought it was time for a full review. At it’s heart, Blood Rage has been faithfully translated from it’s physical form.
But be warned – if you are playing solo, there are some quirks for the developers to sort out still. If you are playing multiplayer, there are many more severe issues to be sorted.
Another week down, and I don’t know where it went. One thing that I did enjoy was trying out Dragon Castle during the week thanks to a Steam sale. A great game for a fun conversation and hidden depths, the Mahjong Solitaire inspired Dragon Castle is a game that can be easily overlooked. It’s a pity, because I think a lot of players that would pass on it would find a very entertaining title.
Have a great weekend everyone!
So as you would have seen in Last Week’s Gaming, I have been hitting the old Animal Crossing: New Horizons. First as a diversion, but the lure has definitely worked. The relaxing cutesy life simulator is everything I thought of the series, and more. Tom Nook is definitely a master manipulator
Have a great weekend everyone
There are games that are fun to just sit and play. Sometimes they are innocent fun, sometimes the subject matter can get downright adult. Billionaire Banshee dips it’s toes in the latter, but is still a great game if you want to quickly break the ice with new players.
Once all this is over, we might need a few icebreaker games to get to know people again!
Sometimes you just want a fun game that doesn’t take much brain power. These games should be quick and fun, but can also add twists that keep things interesting.
Boom, Bang, Gold! Delivers on this in spades. While not a game I would build a collection around, it is a versatile solution to many existing libraries.
I still carry around of quick and portable games in my bags. You never know when you have a bit of downtime with strangers to fill out. In A Grove is a great game from Oink Games that ticks all these boxes, but it’s not quite for everyone.
Many people have voiced Resident Evil 3 is great, but flawed. Too short, Mr X was better, missing sections from the original – take your pick.
I am really enjoying Resident Evil 3. It’s gorgeous, the pacing is great, and streamlining the puzzles makes for a great introduction to new players.
But there is more to the game than the headlines would have you believe.
