About Kirk Hiner

Raised on Intellivision and Star Frontiers, I've been a gamer since I was old enough to say, "There's nothing on TV." There's still nothing on TV so I'm still playing games, and I likely will be until I'm able to retire to Wuhu Island.

Atari Mania sweeps the Switch this summer

I’m old enough to remember the Intellivision vs. Atari wars of the early ’80s. I fought on the losing side of that war (“once you compare, you’ll know”), but that doesn’t mean I can’t honor the victor. This is especially true when they announce a game like Atari Mania.

Review: Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising (Nintendo Switch)

If Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising proves anything, it’s that there’s something to be said for spunk. This action adventure game from 505 Games may serve as a precursor to the forthcoming JRPG Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes, but it manages to stand pretty well on its own.

Review: Bush Hockey League (Nintendo Switch)

Just like a real bush hockey league, the quality of this sim leaves quite a bit to be desired. But despite its faults, the game’s love for the look and attitude of ’70s-era minor league hockey culture may be enough to win over fans.
