A quick and colorful educational toy for the youngin’s

It’s always nice to enjoy something a little calmer, and simpler to play. It’s Spring Again is that experience to the extreme. It’s about 5 minutes long total, but it’s also aimed at toddlers who are still learning basic concepts. Using the touch screen to teach logical problem solving... Read more...

Is "dumpster fire" an idiom?

Normally, we start the show off with a plan. Most of us have a game to talk about, then we roll over into some "carefully selected" email. So what happens when, by crazy coincidence, none of us really have any games to talk about? Normally, we fall back to one of our all-email shows; they're well-liked and fun episodes. So then, how do we address an unusual quiet in the inbox? The ideal way would be to lean into our New Business segment.


At least for now, it's business as usual.

The developers of Firewatch now have a new home.

Originally reported by Kotaku, Campo Santo have confirmed that they have sold the company to Steam administrators Valve. Specific financial terms have not been disclosed, and although Campo Santo will relocate to Seattle from their current San Francisco home the team will remain together rather than being absorbed by Valve.


The Switch checks off another genre on the list.

Let’s start off on the right foot. I absolutely despise the current mobile phone game climate. It is largely a market based less on rewarding game design and more on encouraging the player to gamble their money away one micro-transaction at a time. It has less to do with the art form of video games,... Read more...

Project Giant Robot lives!

We're now in a post-Labo world, and the Nintendo World Report crew has been spending the day getting down with the cardboard.

John Rairdin and Casey Gibson streamed their building of the Robot and Variety kit today, and you can check out the archives below:


I’ve spent dozens of hours synthesizing the best paper possible and yet I still feel empty inside.

Somewhere in my second hour, trying to catch a Balloon Fish so that I can take an alchemy exam, I broke. Atelier Lydie & Suelle The Alchemists of the Mysterious Painting had been plucking on my nerves for a while. The Atelier series has a good hook and at its best is an addictive, Switch-perfect...

The Doom table makes me want to play Doom real bad.

I like that my Switch has become a pinball machine, though I’m becoming less and less enthusiastic about playing it on anything but my TV. Handheld or Tabletop modes are fine in a pinch, but these pinball tables are detailed and should be displayed on your TV for maximum enjoyment. This point was... Read more...

Did the Plato estate sign off on this?

One of the most infamous games in history is coming to a Nintendo platform after more than a quarter century.

Night Trap, the Sega CD full motion video game, has been tabbed for a Switch release "soon". A physical version has been announced for release by Limited Run Games according to the latest issue of Nintendo Force magazine.


The cross of pinball and platformer is finally on the way.

Yoku's Island Express is about to take off.

The pinball platformer has been tapped for a May 29 release, published by Team17. The launch price will be US$19.99/€19.99/£15.99.

A new developer diary is also available as of today:


And ducking the busiest week of the year to date in the process.

Runbow for Switch is slowing down a bit to get more polish.

Originally slated to release Tuesday (April 24), the game will be delayed for "a matter of weeks" according to physical publisher Headup Games. Both the retail and eShop versions will be affected, as well as a planned PlayStation 4 version.


Sixty dollars and time served, next.

Hey everyone! After a week off to shake off the remnants of PAX pox - and the panel is on the feeds - we're live tonight at about 10pm to cover a mess of news. Alex, Donald, and Justin will look ahead to cardboard conquering the world, some big news from the world of Sega, and Capcom continuing the trend of pumping out download codes.


We're past the PAX tidal wave, but that doesn't mean we don't have a ton of games to talk about! Brakes Are For Losers, Lode Runner Legacy, Darkest Dungeon, Shovel Knight, and Ninja Striker just to name a few!

PAX East has come and gone and we’ve finally finished yapping about all the games we saw. So naturally it’s time to get back to the normal swing of things and... talk about more games. Yessiree Jim, we’re back on that... Read more...

Seriously fun combo action.

When looking for a classic action platformer, finding a number of offerings that fit the bill usually isn’t much of a problem, but finding one that feels right while adding an addicting hook is another story. Luckily for us, the fine folks over at Flyhigh Works were able to capture just that with... Read more...

Soaring from mobile to Switch

If you are unaware of Skies of Fury DX, it started out as a mobile game. What seemed like a serviceable cartoony flight simulator on iOS and Android is soaring high in its transition to the Nintendo Switch.

Skies of Fury is set in the year 1917 during a time also known as Bloody April. You... Read more...

In the garage, I feel safe. No one cares about my ways.

There are roguelikes, there are soulslikes and, in my opinion, a few smashlikes exist now too. But I also feel like we’ve reached the point where we can now confidently use the term, “hotlikes.” That is, games inspired by and designed in the spirit of Hotline Miami. We got a pretty solid one... Read more...

A multiplayer game that really tries, but never reaches it's true potential.

Multiplayer games come in various flavors and sizes. When 12 orbits rolled onto my doorstep, it seemed interesting. The ability to play with 12 players with the usage of just a button each is incredible. With simple taps, everyone would take control their character without losing focus on what lies...

Everybody's saying Labo this and Labo that, but nobody's saying Reloaded this or Manticore that.

Today's release schedule is a bit of an oddity, as there's... not a whole lot. Whether this is due to Labo or not is up for debate, but there's already *23* Switch games confirmed for next week. Still, we'll take the breather while it's there. The non-cardboard big ones are Wild Guns Reloaded from... Read more...

Buckle up! It’s going to be a bumpy ride.

I’m not what you would call the best driver. Sure, I can get from one place to another, but not without worrying at least a bit about the lives of those around me. Maybe driving would be easier if we just take away the car’s brakes. It would be one less thing to think about, right? Brakes Are For Losers does that and I was wrong- it is definitely easier to drive with brakes.


This celestial puzzler packs a pretty punch.

Warp Shift begins by introducing you to its heroine, Pi, who must overcome a series of puzzles in order to find her way home. In the intro, we meet her sidekick: a floating cube that assists you along your journey. Mesmerizing music and a beautiful setting draw you in for a relaxing puzzler that is great fun.
