Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba­- Sweep the Board! announced for Switch

Because…why not? Why not take the heart-wrenching, bloody, brutal adventures of Tanjiro and Nezuko Kamado and mash them up with the joyful, innocent, childlike board games of Mario and Peach? To question it is to question the worlds of anime and Nintendo themselves.

Review: Taito Milestones 2 (Nintendo Switch)

I’d never played any of the games in Taito Milestones 2, or at least I don’t recall playing them. How many would become new retro favorites? Not a lot, it ends up, but there certainly are some pleasant surprises.

Review: Might & Magic – Clash of Heroes: Definitive Edition (Nintendo Switch)

I played Might & Magic – Clash of Heroes on iOS a decade ago, but didn’t finish it. That was my mistake, but it’s now been corrected thanks to the Definitive Version for Nintendo Switch, of which I loved every minute. Well, nearly every minute. The majority of minutes, anyway.
