Top 5 Most Anticipated Nintendo Switch Games

  We've finally gotten a thorough look at the Nintendo Switch and the games it will feature. While it has a pretty barren launch, the 3DS did too, and it ended up being one of Nintendo's best consoles. There's going to be a lot of good games on the Switch, and we've already seen some of them. Here are my picks:

#5.) Splatoon 2

 I'll be honest. I never got a chance to play the first Splatoon, as I don't own a Wii U. I always thought it looked interesting though, and I'm glad to see it come to the Switch. The new editions like a really cool jetpack and increased character customization only make Inkopolis seem like more and more of an appealing destination.

 #4.) SnipperClips

 Snipperclips honestly really surprised me with how much it grabbed my interest. I didn't think anything of it during it's brief appearance during the sizzle reel, but when I saw gameplay of it on Nintendo Treehouse afterwards, I was hooked. The characters are cute and funny, the mechanics are very intriguing, and the co-operation required will certainly bring in lots of fun. The game will only be $20 as well, so buying SnipperClips is a no-brainer.

 #3.) ARMS

ARMS also caught me by surprise. At first I thought it was simply a Wii Sports clone, but upon further inspection, it seems to have a lot of depth. This is one game where motion controls actually seem like the better option, even though they are thankfully optional. ARMS seems perfectly suited for the JoyCons, as well. I can't wait to whip my arms across the playing field to strike my unique and colorful opponent.

 #2.) Super Mario Odyssey

 I'll be honest, it was hard to decide between the inevitable #1 and #2. Both games are instant system sellers. After careful consideration, I decided to put Super Mario Odyssey in the #2 slot. This doesn't mean it won't be as good of a game as #1, but I went with my gut on what I am anticipating.

  Super Mario Odyssey looks ready to breathe new life into an admittedly stale series. We're finally getting new mechanics, new characters, an expansive world to do whatever we please in, and just in general a feeling of refreshment. Holiday 2017 can't get here fast enough.

 #1.) The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

 The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild very well may be my most anticipated game ever. I'm completely in love with this game. I genuinely shake just thinking that I'll have my hands on it in less than two months. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about this game. It's insanely beautiful. The gameplay looks fun. The story looks emotional and engaging. This March 3rd, we'll all be in for the game of a lifetime.

Fast RMX Review

Fast RMX is a remaster (or a remix) of Fast Racing Neo, a Wii U eShop title. Developed by Shin'en Multimedia, it is the third game in the Nintendo exclusive Fast series that started all the way on WiiWare. The Fast series is somewhat of a spiritual successor to F-Zero, a Nintendo franchise that has been long forgotten by Nintendo itself. If Nintendo won't develop any more games in the series, at least Shin'en is trying...but have their efforts ended up being worth it? Let's dig in.


Fast RMX looks phenomenal, especially considering the hardware it's on. Breath of the Wild is a beautiful game, but it doesn't look real. Fast RMX does. It's crazy to me that we live in a world where $20 games on portable Nintendo hardware look this good. This game is truly breathtaking.

 In some of the levels, there are weather effects. As water, snow, or sand bombard your screen, it's easy to become incredibly immersed in the game's world. One of the key mechanics…

How I Changed My Mind On The Launch Lineup and 1-2 Switch

If we're being honest, the original Nintendo Switch launch lineup was pretty weak. It featured a measly five games, two of which were third party ports that will likely not sell at all. However, in the five weeks since the Nintendo Switch was fully revealed, this lineup has grown. It's grown a lot.

 A lot of games have been added since the initial lineup. The launch that originally consisted of five games is now at least twelve games. I am Setsuna, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, World of Goo, Little Inferno, Human Resource Machine, Snipperclips, and Fast RMX have all been added to the March 3rd release day.

 The lineup in general has grown exponentially. Reddit user /u/AbsoluteMagnitude has been consistently updating the original lineup picture with every game announcement. The image above is their most recent version of the wallpaper. There are an incredibly large amount of games here, and the numbers just keep climbing.

 Due to the growing launch, I'm a lot more excite…

Splatoon 2 Global Testfire From A Noob's Perspective

I never played the original Splatoon. I always wanted to, but I just never had a chance to try it out. I've seen people play it on YouTube quite a lot (the competitive nature of the game has always provided a fun streaming environment), so I'm familiar with what the game was like. However, you never really know what a game is going to actually end up being like until you get a chance to play it for yourself. Because of that, I was ecstatic to get a chance to play the Global Testfire when it started. I downloaded the beta almost a week in advance, and I eagerly awaited the moment I got to press the triggers and begin my first foray into Inkopolis.

 About five minutes before it was scheduled to, the testfire began. I pressed the button as soon as I heard, and immediately I was in. I've heard that some people had some really bad server issues, but I personally ran into very few. After I was lucky enough to have the server gods smile down on me, it was time to paint. I chose th…
