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.

Review: Fitness Boxing (Nintendo Switch)

Fake boxing in front of the TV is not an alternative to the gym, but a good round of Fitness Boxing before a couple hours of Octopath Traveller is a really good (and surprisingly fun) idea.

Review: Johnny Turbo’s Arcade: Heavy Barrel (Nintendo Switch)

I generally have a problem with games that are released for nostalgic purposes, and Heavy Barrel does not break that trend. It’s a 21-year-old arcade action game faithfully reproduced on your Nintendo Switch, but it’s not one you’ll need to play if you don’t already have fond memories of it.

Review: Valkyria Chronicles 4 (Nintendo Switch)

Truth be told, I’ve been wanting to play a Valkyria Chronicles game since I first saw the box for the original on that other side of the local GameStop. I was obviously thrilled when SEGA announced Valkyria Chronicles 4 was coming to the Switch, but has it been worth the wait?

Underbite Games has brought the dice mechanic back to role-playing in a very unique way with Super Dungeon Tactics, now available for Nintendo Switch. Is it enough to make this a turn-based adventure worth taking? Yes, but not just because of the dice.
