About Kirk Hiner

Raised on Intellivision and Battlezone, I've been a gamer since I was old enough to say, "There's nothing on TV." It wasn't until Wind Waker and Path of Radiance on the GameCube, however, that I became a die-hard Nintendo fanboy...or fanman, I guess. I've been covering Mac gaming on the web since 1997, and am thrilled to finally be covering Nintendo. I now look forward to the day when I can write about Trauma Center in the present tense.

Review: Kona (Nintendo Switch)

Kona is a game that’s best played alone. I know that counters Nintendo’s focus on playing with as many friends as you have Joycons, but playing alone makes this “walking …

Review: Castle of Heart (Nintendo Switch)

Castle of Heart is a bit of a misnomer. A Nintendo Switch-exclusive from 7Levels, this 2.5D platformer has no heart, or at least not one it wants to share …
