New Pokemon Snap Review

In retrospect, the original Pokemon Snap was way ahead of its time. Decades before photo mode became a staple in many modern games, Pokemon Snap was essentially Photo Mode: The Video Game. Despite the game’s misgivings, the novelty of taking pictures of cute creatures in their natural habitat made for an experience that we haven’t really seen since.

New Pokemon Snap isn’t going to revolutionize the world like the first one did. It doesn’t have to. Really, it’s primary goal is to give players that same magic of taking photos of Pokemon in the wild while cleaning up some of the originals issues, such as its incredibly-short run-time.

Pokemon Snap Review

Before photo mode in video games, Pokemon Snap was Photo Mode: The Video Game. Putting you behind the camera of a professional pokemon photographer, your goal is to take candid snapshots of these creatures in order to help Professor Oak with his research. Decades later, this Nintendo 64 game still holds a special place in many players’ hearts.

With a sequel just months away from release, Steff and I finally took the time to complete Pokemon Snap once and for all. Is this cult-hit spin-off still picture perfect?

The Gaming Rotation – How Many Games Are You Juggling at Once?

From what I gather, Luigi’s Mansion 3 isn’t a particularly long game. And yet here I am, having owned it since launch, still just a fraction of the way through it.

A lot of things arose in the last few months that got in the way. Running the Extra Life marathon. The holidays. Writing for the site. Streaming. Creating content for the YouTube channel. Oh, and my quirk of playing only one game at a time.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX Demo Impressions

Pokemon spin-off games may not have the prestige of the mainline series, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be good or successful in their own right. Pokemon Go hit supernova levels of popularity at launch and is still one of the biggest games in the world in terms of player base and revenue. Matter of fact, chasing Pokemon in the real world is what truly brought me into the fandom.

Though I’ve completely missed the window on the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series, it seems like the series has done well for itself. Over 13 million copies sold before the release of Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon is nothing to sneeze at. With a remake of the original on the way for the Nintendo Switch and a demo available now on the eShop, I take a stroll through Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX.

Pokemon Sword and Shield Review

Worst Pokemon game ever?

No entry in the Pokemon series has caught heat quite like Pokemon Sword and Shield. When word got out that this title would buck the trend of supporting every Pokemon, the news disappointed many and sent a vocal minority into a tizzy. The drama hit a fever pitch around the launch of the game, as the outcry over everything cut from the game sat diametrically opposed to the generally positive reviews from the press. With so much conflicting information going around, who could you trust?

Ultimately, I decided to trust in myself by going through with my purchase of Pokemon Sword. Good or bad, at least I would know for sure where I stood on the discussion. I hope you get the chance to play the game and come to your own conclusions as well.
