IN THE SPOTLIGHT

After reviewing the amazing Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (go check my review if you haven't already read it!), I told you guys that I became a new fan of Warriors games and wanted to play more of them. I kept true to that promise and bought the Fire Emblem Warriors Limited Edition (Amiibo's not included), since Fire Emblem is one of my favorite game series of all time.

We do have to keep in mind that FE Warriors was originally released back in 2017 when the Nintendo Switch original came out and therefore comparing it to a late 2020 game (Age of Calamity) might not be best comparison out there. Still, I was looking forward to playing my 'second Warriors experience', since I adore the Fire Emblem series. FE Warriors was developed by the same team that worked on the original Hyrule Warriors. Back when it released it received positive reviews, so let us see how well it holds up nowadays...

EVEN MORE EPIC STUFF

  • Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & The Secret Hideout Most gamers, especially fans of the JRPG genre, will know about or have played a game from the Atelier series. The first game in this RPG-series, which is developed by Gust, was released in 1997. Most of the Atelier games have been released on Sony consoles or (Nintendo) handhelds. The publishing duties for Atelier Ryza have been given to Koei Tecmo. Since the relationship between Koei and Nintendo has flourished these past years, Atelier Ryza also has an excellent Nintendo Switch port!

  • Thief Yes, I know this is a relatively old game. I mean, come on; it was first released on the PS3 back in 2014 for crying out loud! Back then, I also bought the game and played it for a bit, but somehow I got stuck early on and after retrying the level a couple of times I was just frustrated and quit. No, I didn't throw my controller across the room and wreck my TV while filming it. I'm not some spoiled, snotty little rich brat who will do anything for views.

  • The End of an Era On October 23rd of this year, a terrible occurrence came to pass. The two members of our Big Red Timemachine finally showed their true colors as Sadhonker and CallMeBackdraft transformed into their other selves, Sadhonker Prime and The Mastered Ultra Instinct Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, respectively. What ensued was a battle of epic proportions which threatened to destroy the known universe completely (just like about everything these two get up to these days)...

  • Umihara Kawase BaZooka! Umihara Kawase is a quirky action/ platform series staring a sushi chef Kawase Umihara who has become lost in a world of surreal salt-water and fresh-water creatures (thank you Wikipedia). Why do I say thank you? Well, mostly because I really had no idea what I was getting myself into when I accepted this indy game review. Apparently the first game released on SNES in 1994. BaZooKa! Is the 5th game in the series and focuses less on story and platforming and more on competitive fighting. I reviewed the game for Nintendo Switch, but it is also available on PS4 and PC.

  • No Mercy for Monsters While night falls on the Mimosa District, a couple of young brave souls wander around the neighborhood together. This is when they stumble upon a group of monsters an catch them red handed, trying to break into a house. It's up to you and your fellow friends, to get rid of these nasty monsters before the residents comes back from their night out, but try not to break anything.

  • Micetopia In the magical land of Micetopia, you are a small but brave little mouse in the prime of his life. A dark and strange evil force has taken almost all of your fellow villagers, only the old grumpy mouse and yourself are left. Now it's up to you to find and rescue your friends and family from this unexpected evil presence. Ah yes, and you need to fix the town well, since it was destroyed and we do need water, of course.

  • Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory I've got something fun here, or at least I think it will be fun. I'm going to review Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory. As a true Disney fan, I've played Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 on PlayStation 2, but I was never able to complete them. Man, those were some tough games! But I do rock the Guitar Hero games (see what I did there?), so that it might work in my favor. And why is that you might ask yourself? Well, because Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory is in fact a rhythm game!

  • Spirit of the North Cuteness overload! That was the first feeling that came over me when I played the first minutes of a brand new game by developer Infuse Studio and publisher Merge Games, called Spirit of the North. I just loved the look and feel of the game so, naturally, I simply needed to play it!
