About David Temple

I started covering games for iOS in 2013, and made the Switch to Nintendo (you see what I did there) in 2019. I enjoy tabletop, mobile, and console gaming—just about anything which can provide a little diversion, a brain teaser, or an adventure. A little play every day can be good for you. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Review: Cybertrash STATYX (Nintendo Switch)

With Cybertrash STATYX, I thought I was getting another retro-visual platformer with plenty of obstacle course action and lots of shooting the bad-guys. And I did get that. What I also got was not exactly what I had hoped for.

Review: Rising Lords (Nintendo Switch)

Normal kids have to worry about homework, hanging out with friends, and maybe riding bikes around the neighborhood. In Rising Lords, they have to worry about statesmanship, domestic policy, and combat. I think I would rather live the first option.

Review: Kickback Slug: Cosmic Courier (Nintendo Switch)

All the ethics courses I have taken say we shouldn’t take kickbacks, but I guess the rules are different if you are a slug…and a space courier. The game doesn’t take itself very seriously, and that is one of its strengths.

Review: Gothic Classic (Nintendo Switch)

The subject of today’s missive is Gothic Classic—a Switch port of the old PC game for you. Don’t get too excited, though, unless you are a fan of the old version or really crave the nostalgia of it. This port may be gothic, but it is far from epic.
