Fire Emblem: Three Houses (Switch) Review

Fire Emblem: Three Houses is the return of the tactical RPG series onto a home console platform where Intelligent Systems takes full advantage of the new hardware power of the Nintendo Switch over the Nintendo 3DS. Three Houses feels like the Fire Emblem game I’ve dreamed of playing since Fire Emblem Path of Radiance on the GameCube. Something that feels like the big budgeted tactical RPG adventure that it deserves to be. Full voice acting, amazing soundtrack, choices that impact the direction of the story, characters that will stick with you for years to come. This game has everything that RPG fans will love, while also having and engrossing customization and tactical gameplay systems.

ONINAKI (Switch) First Impressions

Oninaki is a wonderfully crafted action-RPG game from the developers of I am Setsuna, Tokyo RPG Factory. This game follows the story of Kagachi, a Watcher who protects Life after death and guides lost souls back to the path to reincarnation with the ability to travel between the world of the living and the world of the dead.

Oninaki delivers breathtaking artwork from characters and maps to even speech bubbles. This game is truly pleasing to the eyes. Vibrant colors fill your screen matched with the right sound effects. Exploring areas lets you feel the environment and nature of the game. Through Oninaki’s sound design the chirping of the birds, the flow of the water in the river, and the rustling of the leaves makes this game feel so alive. With all this vibrance in this game it also presents darkness efficiently. The deepness of the story emanates from the brightness of the Living World to the darkness of the The Beyond.

SUPERHOT VR (Oculus Quest) Review

SUPERHOT is a name that many gamers are likely familiar with at this point. Although it has been a highly successful title, across multiple platforms, this game has humble roots. In fact it was first created during the 2013 7DFPS (7 Day FPS Challenge) Game Jam. After that it went on to become a web browser game in September of that year but didn’t appear in the form people know it today until its Windows release on February 2016.

Since those days, SUPERHOT has matured and enjoys a platform-agnostic existence across the Xbox, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Mac OS X, and even Linux. VR support came in the form of SUPERHOT VR which is available on Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR. There’s even a standalone expansion serving as a roguelike spin-off called SUPERHOT Mind, Control, Delete.

The newest version of this popular experimental shooter game recently released for the Oculus Quest, which itself has taken the gaming world by storm as it’s the first VR headset to not require a PC / Mobile device. In this review we will evaluate how the experience translates on a VR headset which houses its own screen, processor, RAM, etc. to find out just how premium it feels.
