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.

Maid of Sker to scare Switch players in October

I’ve been to Wales twice. It’s my second favorite place on Earth (behind only Cedar Point). But that’s maybe just because I didn’t have to stay at the Hotel Sker while I was visiting.

Review: Miles & Kilo (Nintendo 3DS)

By  •  Reviews, 3DS

Miles & Kilo was originally released for mobile devices in 2017. It hit the Switch in 2018, and now can be played in glorious 3D! And you know what? I’m fine with that. It helps that the 3D implementation adds to the game’s retro charm, and Miles & Kilo is all about the retro charm.

Review: Can Androids Pray:Blue (Nintendo Switch)

CAN ANDROIDS PRAY:BLUE isn’t a game, it’s a moment left behind by another game. It’s as if two NPC mechs that were incapacitated during one of your battles held a conversation after the game had moved on. Except these two pilots are going to die, and they’re fully aware of that.

Review: Shinsekai Into the Depths (Nintendo Switch)

I originally played Capcom’s Shinsekai Into the Depths on Apple TV. It’s easy to recommend it there as it’s one of the better games that come free with an Apple Arcade subscription. Can I recommend it as a $20 purchase on the Nintendo Switch? Let’s explore.

Review: Baron: Fur is Gonna Fly (Nintendo Switch)

What a pleasant surprise is Baron: Fur is Gonna Fly. I expected this aerial combat party game to be little more than a temporary time killer. What I got instead is a game that’s so focused on fun and so dedicated to its theme that it just begs to be experienced with others…once we’re able to do so again, anyway.

Review: Warriors Orochi IV Ultimate (Nintendo Switch)

Warriors Orochi IV Ultimate was released a mere 16 months after the original, and for the exact same systems. Is it worth a fresh look? It depends upon how close you were to picking it up the first time around.

Review: Dead or School (Nintendo Switch)

80 years after the apocalypse, a girl receives a school uniform and is inspired to single-handedly rid the world of mutants and restore the education system. I say without the slightest trace of irony that this right here is why I love video games.

Review: inbento (Nintendo Switch)

I’m not entirely sure it’s possible for a game to be cuter than inbento. What could be more adorable and wholesome than a game centered around a mother cat making bento boxes for her kitten? But is it fun to play?

The name Silver Falls: 3 Down Stars may sound like a bad band/album from the early aughts, and after playing this survival horror game for the New Nintendo 3DS you’ll likely wish it had been.
