    How the Boktai Series Lost Its Identity

    How the Boktai Series Lost Its Identity

    One of my favorite video games of all time is Boktai for the Game Boy Advance. Now make no mistake when I say "Boktai," I'm only referring to the original game in the series Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand. While I still think the sequels to Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand are enjoyable games, I believe they stray too far from the original to deliver a satisfying follow-up. So, in order to highlight where the Boktai series went wrong, I'll need to break down what changed over the course of the series.

    Did 'Pokemon Go' Leak a Gen 8 Pokemon?

    Did 'Pokemon Go' Leak a Gen 8 Pokemon?

    As we all very vividly remember, Pokemon Go blew the online gaming and phone gaming world away in July 2016. Although the hype of the real world Pokemon experience has died down dramatically since the game dropped two years ago, it still has a great number of players who've either played since the beginning or have started between then and now. Either way you twist it, Pokemon Go has had two very strong years of gameplay/downloads in both the Google Play App store and Apple App Store. And we can't disagree with those numbers when you think about their new releases such as the "Celebi and Mew Research Quests," the recent update that gave its users the ability to trade and add each other, and their monthly Community Day events. Their last community day fell this Saturday, September 22nd. The next Community Day will fall on October 21, 2018.

    Nintendo Wii U Games That I'd Like to See Receive a Switch Port

    Nintendo Wii U Games That I'd Like to See Receive a Switch Port

    A few weeks after the announcement of Nintendo's most successful video game console to date, the Switch, its predecessor, the Wii U, had officially been discontinued just a few months short of its fifth anniversary. Like the GameCube last decade, the Wii U was a console that had an impressive lineup of exclusives, but was short-lived due to, among other reasons, a lack of sufficient third-party support.

    Most Popular Games for Switch Players

    Most Popular Games for Switch Players

    Nintendo consoles always seem to be in a league of their own. With proprietary series like Donkey Kong and Super Smash Bros, Nintendo has been the reigning champion of party games. On the flip side, Nintendo's exclusive nature has kept away some of the most popular multi-platform titles from other consoles. The Nintendo Switch, however, has helped usher in a new era of cross-platform titles, giving Switch owners access to some of the most popular games in the world. From these cross-platform titles to Nintendo exclusives, here are some of the most popular games for Switch players right now.

    Buff That Pokémon! 1: Pikachu

    Buff That Pokémon! 1: Pikachu

    Have you or someone you know ever saw the Pokémon games and thought: "Hmm, Pikachu is the mascot of the entire series, so he must be extremely powerful." Well I'm sorry to say that assumption couldn't be farther from reality. If we were to describe Mewtwo's power as "ringing the bell" of a high striker carnival game, Pikachu wouldn't even be able to get the puck off the lever. It's that bad.

    'Ocarina of Time’s' Link Deserves Another Adventure

    'Ocarina of Time’s' Link Deserves Another Adventure

    Like most people who owned an N64, I spent dozens of hours exploring Hyrule in the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Despite the fact that I was constantly flipping through a walk-through to complete it, this game is one of my favourites to this day. I don’t look back as fondly on its sequel Majora’s Mask. I find the three day timer mechanic to be stressful and overbearing. Despite this, I played Majora’s Mask mainly to continue Link's, from Ocarina of Time, story. I enjoyed Twilight Princess much more and I thought it was a good way to round out my favourite Link’s journey. I was under the impression that the similar art style between the three games mentioned earlier and the cell shaded style of The Wind Waker meant that there was a link for each art style. I was wrong. Even though I think the official timeline for Zelda was created to make fans feel better rather than being something planned from the start, I still like to follow it. According to this timeline, the Link from the N64 games is not the same as the Link from Twilight Princess. In fact, the Link from those games is actually the Hero’s Shade that teaches sword techniques to the new Link throughout Twilight Princess. If you choose to learn all the hidden skills you will also learn that in his life, he regretted not passing on his knowledge to an apprentice until then.

    10 Worst Switch Games So Far

    10 Worst Switch Games So Far

    If you know me, you know how obsessed I am with my Nintendo Switch. I love the little system; getting to play current gen games on both the big screen and in my hands is an awesome feature. The Switch has a library of some amazing games, too, like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Both of those were two of the best Switch games of 2017. But with the good must come the bad.
