The original Pokémon Snap on the Nintendo 64 is truly one of those games that fits in the list of “sequels that people have wanted for years” and after I played it earlier this year I can definitely see why. As someone that loves to take photos myself, it’s a joy to be able to take pictures of your favourite pocket monsters in environments that fit them like a thumb, and see how they interact in them. …

At this point the Persona series is definitely no stranger to spinoff titles, and in all honesty it’s a series that is deserving of all the popularity and games that it receives. Each mainline title impacted the lives of many that play them, and the quality of these games are consistent throughout the genres it dabbles in, whether it be the turn-based RPGs of the mainline games, the competitive fighting games from Arc System Works or even the rhythm games (yes, you heard me right, there are rhythm games and they are amazing). …

After over a whole year of no proper direct in sights, Nintendo surprised us with a 50 minute direct going over titles that have been in the works for 2021 so far, as well as some special announcements for games aimed to be released in 2022. Overall, I’d say this direct came with quite a few pleasant surprises and I’m ridiculously hyped for what’s coming later this year. Here are some of the key titles announced at this month’s Nintendo Direct.

Pyra and Mythra are coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

Well, we all did it. We made it to 2021! With the previous year behind us, we can all look forward to a year that is much more hopeful than the last (the year that shall not be named) and what better way to do that than get hyped for the plethora of games that are planned for release this year. From triple A titles to smaller indie releases, here are some games this year that I’m excited to get my hands on.
