Lowered Expectations – The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

On the cusp of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’s launch, I find myself reflective of the series and where it’s led to today.  Like many others, the structural departure from the series’ tried-but-true series of complex dungeons along a streamlined set of overworlds became long in the tooth by the time we … Continue reading Lowered Expectations – The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Kukoos: Lost Pets (Switch) Review

One of the joys of covering new and upcoming games is finding works under the radar and discovering new experiences for my family to enjoy.  When kids reach an age of self-sufficiency but not yet a brooding teenager, there’s a window of time for building connective tissue.  Kukoos: Lost Pets seemed like prime opportunity to … Continue reading Kukoos: Lost Pets (Switch) Review

Card Shark (Switch) Review

Go Fish By Joel DeWitte Card shark grabbed my eyes the moment trailers started popping up.  The concept of grifting the well-to-do by pulling off sleight of hand tricks in a game of cards is so novel (or at least, I haven’t seen it).  It’s the most visually arresting game I’ve played all year.  Each … Continue reading Card Shark (Switch) Review

Windjammers 2 (Switch) Review
