About Trevor Gould

Even though I was first introduced to video games with the Atari 2600 (I feel old) it was Nintendo that turned me into a lifelong fan. From the magical NES era when Nintendo was the face of gaming, through today with the 3DS, Switch (and everything in between) Nintendo’s always entertained me with their innovative, and just plain fun games! Writing for Pure Nintendo has allowed me to combine a fondness for journalism with my love of gaming. I’ve especially enjoyed building working relationships with smaller and independent developers and studios.

Review: Just a Phrase by POWGI (Nintendo Switch)

While I’ve enjoyed several of Lightwood Games prior releases, Just a Phrase by POWGI is pretty disappointing. A very brief game with almost no challenge, it’s left me wanting more. …

Review: Crash Drive 2 (Nintendo Switch)

Crash Drive 2 has some sizable issues, yet, amazingly, I’m still recommending it. Chief among these is that it’s a multiplayer game without local multiplayer! But despite numerous missteps where …
