Retrograde Arena, Physics-Based Twin-Stick Shooter Enters Early Access May 28th

Retrograde Arena

We have a ton of multiplayer games out there, but few of them really explore any kind of new territory or gameplay mechanics. Most are the same thing over and over again: Battle Royale, MOBA, or FPS. Occasionally we’ll get an RTS of sorts and maybe an arcade racer here or there. Taiwanese developer Freemergency Studio and publisher Another Indie hope to mix things up a bit with the game Retrograde Arena.

Cannibal Cuisine, Multiplayer Party Game Releases May 20th On Steam, Nintendo Switch

Cannibal Cuisine

While Sony and Microsoft compete on who can produce the most non-fun, barely interactive, or unengaging forms of software they can for the PlayStation and Xbox ecosystem, Nintendo opened the floodgates for third-party developers to produce any and every kind of game they can think of that falls within the rules of the ratings boards. Heck, they’ll even allow party games about cannibalism! Continue reading “Cannibal Cuisine, Multiplayer Party Game Releases May 20th On Steam, Nintendo Switch”

Overcooked 2 Nintendo Switch Review: Please Sir, I Want Some More

Overcooked 2

[Disclosure: A review code was provided for the contents of this article]

Just when I started to think that I had gorged myself to bursting on the first Overcooked since its rather lackluster launch on Nintendo Switch, I now find myself with a hefty dessert in the form of the second installment to contend with. At first glance, it’s hard to tell what’s new – Overcooked 2 retains much of the same game play of the original, with a clear focus on couch cooperative and online multiplayer and relatively slim pickings for the solo player. Continue reading “Overcooked 2 Nintendo Switch Review: Please Sir, I Want Some More”

Overcooked: Special Edition Switch Review: a Little Bit Chewy

Overcooked Review

[Disclosure: A review copy was provided for the contents of this article]

There was – maybe is – a good chance that Overcooked: Special Edition (just Overcooked from now on) could be one of the most suitable games ever to be ported to the Nintendo Switch, thanks to it’s addictive cooperative play. This is legitimately the kind of game that you could use to extol the virtues of Nintendo’s latest console to your friends and family, cracking it out on the train, on holiday, at work – wherever – and handing out Joy-Con’s for some crazy cooking fun. Unfortunately though, the Nintendo Switch version of Overcooked (at least right now) is kind of broken. Continue reading “Overcooked: Special Edition Switch Review: a Little Bit Chewy”
