Tetris 99 is the newest installment of this iconic gaming franchise. Tetris has a way of leading the puzzle genre of gaming, from the first VR puzzle game to now the first Battle Royal puzzle game. This installment Tetris puts you up against 98 other players, for a total of 99 players in a room. Tetris 99 is only available to customers of the Nintendo Switch online service, and it’s free. I have been barley able to pull myself away from Tetris long enough to write this up. From the hour I have played I have not waited longer then 30 seconds to get in to a match, and I have not experienced any lag or slow down, I have also never been disconnected or booted out of a game. If you are a fan of puzzle games this is defiantly for you. Also this is a great perk for Nintendo Switch online customers.

One of Nintendo’s biggest franchises on one of Nintendo’s best consoles . Everyone is here and this truly looks to be the Ultimate Super Smash Bros. For the casual fighting game fan to the hardcore pro player. Like seriously who doesn’t love Smash!
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe feels like the pinnacle of the series, it took what Mario Kart 8 had on the Wii U and built upon that for a nearly perfect version of what Mario Kart can be. It really is the one Nintendo game that everyone can play and everyone can enjoy.
Game of year winner in 2017 and it’s not hard to see why. Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is probably one of the best Nintendo games on the system. It was literally a breath of fresh air with its sprawling open world and creative physics engine. Go anywhere, climb anything, if you can see it you can get to it.
If Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the best Nintendo game on the system, Super Mario Odyssey isn’t far behind. The next true 3d Mario since Super Mario Sunshine. Perfect to explore and collect by yourself and it has a handy assist mode for any children who want to explore and experience the world of Super Mario Odyssey.
From its clothes, gear, weapons and music Splatoon 2 feels like a self contained culture that has created a trendy and stylish world all within a game. It gets a tremendous amount of love from the development team in the form of free updates. It has events called Splatfest every so often to keep the community engaged and the game feeling fresh. It’s a shooter that’s family friendly and something that only Nintendo could have pulled off.
Nintendo has had the support of Ubisoft since the Wii days. Ubisoft even supported Nintendo during the dark era of the Wii U. Thankfully for Nintendo, Ubisoft has been hitting some real home runs on the Switch. First with Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle and now with Starlink: Battle for Atlus. Starlink with it’s inclusion of the Starfox characters has stealthy became the best Starfox game in ages. It’s fun, fast and well made everything Starfox Zero on the Wii U was not. Plus this comes with an Arwing toy that is more than worth the price of admission.

Over the long weekend, Nintendo dropped a new Smash Bros Ultimate trailer. An advertisement that is truly the banner artwork come to life. What makes this commercial different than past Nintendo advertising is that this commercial has zero music, but it does have sound effects. Enter the internet and in a matter of hours, there were tons of edits from users adding their own background tunes and here’s the awesome part, like the slogan “Everybody’s here” EVERY SONG WORKS. Take a look at some examples below.
Was this some genius marketing ploy by Nintendo, or just a happy coincidence? Either way, this is just the beginning folks and if you want to see more edits head to Twitter and search #smashbrosultimate to see for yourself. I’m sure this trend will continue at least until Smash Bros Ultimate on Nintendo Switch releases…. or maybe longer. Heck, I’m probably going to make one later myself.
**Thanks to all those creative folks out on Twitter, give their accounts some love.**
Drago Dino was created by Plug-In Digital. Unfortunately, it failed to impress. You control a Drago Dino called Bob (Yes, Original) who you guide through 10 levels in search of his lost egg. You do this by traversing through 2D platform levels which are very lackluster. Bob doesn’t control very well but is designed very well and looks cute enough. Once you get used to his flaws, he does seem to bob-along.
There are two difficulties to choose from. You can choose Normal or Hard. In Normal, you get three lives and checkpoints whereas in Hard, you get one life and no checkpoints.
Players can also play in Co-op mode. In addition to that, there is a practice mode with a practice map. The practice mode came off as a bit strange. It’s almost as if the developers knew that this particular Drago Dino was going to be hard to control.
It’s not a bad game by any stretch. Its one high point is that the game looks incredibly cute. I simply can’t recommend it as lackluster as it is. Drago Dino as mentioned already, failed to impress me and I fear it will fail to impress you. For £8.99($9.99) it seems a tad expensive for what you get. it took me roughly 1:30 hours to complete, so it’s not a long game. Q4P Pass or Play? PASS

Maria the Witch is a game by Naps Team. It grabs your attention by its cute graphics which look amazing and right at home on the Nintendo Switch! Let’s get to the review!
Maria The Witch
The game’s premise is that you control Maria’s Broom and try and get to the end of the stages. The story behind the game is that an Evil Monster has stolen all the mail and it’s your Job to try and get all the mail back! You do this by collecting coins and mail and reaching checkpoints where you can deliver the mail and buy unlockables. In each stage, there are different tasks that you can have to do achieve to be able to get all three stars per level.
Controls are a Mess! Luckily Maria Has a Broom
This is where the game starts to have its flaws, not within its premise but within its controls. I cannot adequately explain the controls because they are so unnatural. So, you move the broom forward by tapping the A button or Y button if you are going left on its 2D plane. Or you press the buttons for longer you start to turn upwards and this is where the problem lies. The controls are terribly frustrating to use, and you need the patience to learn the controls adequately. Later on in the game, this becomes a huge problem later on in the game where there need to be precise movements.
Should it have stayed on Mobile?
This game is one of the many games that are starting to appear on the mobile. Some say that these types of games are a senseless cash grab. However, I feel like this game fits the Nintendo Switch really well with its cute design and if you are prepared to master the controls then the game is great. The game is only £4.49 ($4.99) and right now it’s on sale for half price! So, if you were ever to get the game it would be now. This game just scrapes into the Pass Category.
If you know me, you know I’m a die-hard Nintendo fan. I show my love and support for the big N with a half tattoo sleeve sporting Nintendo’s number one franchise, Mario. This is why it is uncomfortable for me to say this but, E3 2018 is going to be a bust for Nintendo. Nintendo’s big plans are to only Bring Smash Brothers 5 to the E3 show floor. Yes, it worked with Zelda. It also worked with Mario Odyssey. Not with Smash and here’s why.
Save Some Surprises For The Launch Day
With fighting games like Smash 5, it will be very hard to keep somethings a surprise for Nintendo at E3. Especially if it’s all you will be showing off. With Mario and Zelda, you could show little areas and keep people with just that experience. Nintendo will be having a pro-community Smash 5 tournament. How can you make hype with only showing two to three fighters you can’t.
Days Gone By
Gone are the days when we only had four-page spreads in Nintendo Power. Now everything about a game is spoiled as soon as it is announced and leaves nothing to find out on launch day. I guess I’m just old-fashioned in that way. My mother always told me “why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free”
I feel there will be nothing left for us to experience with Smash 5 on launch day after Nintendo E3 this year, and that’s a shame
