The game isn't bad by any means, but it feels like more could have been done to enhance the multiplayer experience and to just add some replayability.

8 / 10.0 - Borderlands 3
Oct 1, 2019

Borderlands 3 is a great game, but it's definitely got some technical issues with sadly brings the score down a bit.  While my issues weren't as bad as others I've heard about, they're still annoying at times.  However, if you can get past that you'll find a game that's more of the same as previous games (especially 2 and pre-sequel), but that's what made Borderlands great to start with.  A great story, reuniting with old friends, and some pretty interesting villains ensures I'll be coming back to open any more vaults that are found on any planet Gearbox wishes to travel to.

Torchlight II is as fun on the Switch as it was back when it launched on PCs seven years ago.  The controls on the Switch feel pretty good and eased my worries about transitioning from PC to console.  While a lot of the game is basically fighting enemies, collecting loot, and repeat, if you're into games like the Diablo series you should enjoy Torchlight II, and at a third of the price of Diablo III (at least on the Switch), Torchlight II is a great alternative.

8.5 / 10.0 - Damsel
Aug 21, 2019

Damsel is a fun arcade-style platformer/shooter/speedrunner/whatever genre you want to call it.  The comic-style motif is a nice concept that I haven't seen for a long time and the gameplay is pretty fluid.  The darkness of the stages and the similarities between the three game modes kind of bring the game down a little, but it's still an enjoyable outing for the Nintendo Switch.

Million to One Hero is a well-polished game in the "custom level creation" genre (is that a genre…well it is now).  The controls are fluid and you'll have to employ a lot of skill to finish some of the creations players can come up with.  The level creation itself is pretty robust, though it would have been nice if some of the icons were a little bigger on the screen, and combining levels into a mini-adventure is a nice touch.  If you're a fan of 2D platforming and level creation, you'll find a lot to do in Million to One Hero for a satisfying price.

9 / 10.0 - Blazing Chrome
Jul 11, 2019

Blazing Chrome is a great throwback to games such as Contra; simple run-and-guns with swarms of enemies, awesome boss fights, special weapons, and a great soundtrack to go with it. With fluid controls, multiple difficulties, and a stage select so you can pick which stage to tackle in any order, Blazing Chrome is definitely worth picking up if you’re into Contra-style games.

Warlocks 2: Godslayers is enjoyable for the most part, but the difficult and tedious combat can take the fun out of the game for some people.  The game is definitely geared for multiplayer as the combat can be overwhelming during solo play.  Beyond that there are a few minor performance hiccups though it doesn't normally affect any major gameplay.  If you can get past that and the difficult-at-times combat, you'll find an enjoyable and humorous game with some interesting gameplay mechanics and even more interesting writing.

9 / 10.0 - Shards of Infinity
Jun 11, 2019

I was hoping that Shards of Infinity would get a digital release and it didn't disappoint…mostly.  Newer players to the game might find that even the easiest difficulty can still be quite challenging and that may prevent them from fully enjoying the game, at least against AI opponents.  Once you've learned some basic strategies and have gotten used to how some of the cards work, you'll find a challenging deck building game that keeps you on your toes and is just as enjoyable as its physical counterpart.

8 / 10.0 - Team Sonic Racing
May 17, 2019

Team Sonic Racing does a pretty good job with the new team mechanics, but the difficulty can still be a tad rough at times.  While not as bad as prior entries, it can be easy to fall behind after you've spun out, only to catch up again using a Team Ultimate, only to drop back a few spots when the opposing team does the same thing and cost you the race.  Still, Sonic Team Racing is enjoyable alone and even more with friends or while playing online.
