I figured Grubdog can’t have all the fun with talking about first impressions of the Nintendo Switch, but while he has fancy pictures he took himself, my impressions are going to be picture-less. Unlike Grub, my local EB Games did not have a midnight launch. It did open at 8:30 a.m. local time, and there … Continue reading Switch Impressions – Matto Edition
A few days ago I received a package from a mysterious company named Nodens Enterprises. It addressed me as Grubdog so I knew it had to be gaming related, but how did they know my address? Inside was an interesting art book with characters and locations, but no writing or context. Looked cool, but I … Continue reading My trip to Nodens Enterprises
I've heard a lot of bad things about this game, but I know better than to believe game journalists these days. I avoided Devil's Third mainly because I couldn't justify a $90 game where you shoot with the analog stick. With the game inevitably bombing I was able to do a deal with the devil … Continue reading Devil’s Third – Not Half Bad
A lot has changed in a decade. Suddenly I'm holding a baby and the world is mirrored. I must be getting old too, because my movement feels sluggish. It takes me longer to stop, and I can't even walk and aim at the same time. It's like my legs lock into place, I can't move … Continue reading Twilight Princess HD – I’m a Hero Now
G'day! I'm here with my pal Yangus at The Weary Wanderer, just 'avin a brew and a laugh. We shared stories of the past and had a great time reminiscing. He's got a real captivating way of telling a story with that strong accent of his. Really knows how to pound down the bevvies too, … Continue reading Dragon Quest VIII – Journey of the Cursed Selfie
The big blue world was bigger than it seemed As islands rose from under the sea Collecting shards to see the past Our brave young heroes were having a blast They traveled far and gave hope to the living Only to discover, this was just the beginning... That's right, after 30 hours I've finally seen … Continue reading Dragon Quest VII – A Week Later (30 Hour Impressions)
Normally I will get pretty far into a game before doing a write-up, but I thought I'd share some of my excitement for Dragon Quest right now while it's in the air. It's better than holding it in for weeks, right? I'm a few hours into Dragon Quest VII on 3DS and absolutely loving it. … Continue reading Dragon Quest VII – The Journey Begins (Early Impressions)
Fast impressions of seven games.
I played about 5 hours of Star Fox Zero today and I'm just so excited that I have to write out these impressions and clear up some things about this game immediately. There's a lot of confusion going around about the controls and quite frankly, it's all fucking bullshit. Game journalists spinning this propaganda are … Continue reading Star Fox Zero – Flying Through The Bullshit
That's right, you've stumbled into a writeup of impressions of a free demo. It might seem a bit redundant but this game has a special charm to it I wanted to share, and a lot of people still don't play free demos because being active is hard. If you have a 3DS and live in … Continue reading Yo-Kai Watch – Demo Impressions
Roland complains about his family before finally sharing his first impressions
Nintendo's been distributing *HELLO* demo codes for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes on 3DS and *HELLO* I've been lucky enough to get my hands on some from Nintendo Australia. I say lucky because their *HELLO* email system is shitty and unreliable, and these are seemingly distributed randomly. With the death of Club Nintendo … Continue reading Tri Force Heroes – Demo Impressions!!
