The video game will follow an orphan named Miriam who has been cursed by an alchemist which is slowly turning her skin into crystal. In order to stop the curse, she must explore a castle to find the summoner of this curse, Gebel, who as it turns out had suffered the same condition.
What makes you think only “our enemies” are involved in the drug trade? The US has often found it convenient and expedient to ally with drug lords, your doubts notwithstanding. If there’s actually any eradication going on it’s not having much effect, as Afghanistan’s share of the world opium supply shot up pretty dramatically after the US invasion, just like it did after the US invasion of Vietnam.

The Nintendo Switch may be the baby of the console market but that’s not stopped it taking the world by storm. A far bigger hit than the Wii U that came before it, the Switch has the potential to be one of the best selling Nintendo consoles in recent history.
Update #2: The Nintendo Switch has been out for about two weeks now, as of March 16, and systems remain hard to find. Your best bet right now is to call local retailers and ask when they expect to get restocked and how those lines will be handled.
Ubisoft’s Rabbids come toe-to-toe with Mario, Luigi, Peach and Yoshi in this turn-based title. Take a team of three through the Mushroom Kingdom and beat back the Rabbid invasion. This game takes familiar faces, mixes in some Rabbid-flavoured chaos and wraps it all up in XCOM-style gameplay that’ll have even hardened gamers hooked. Balance weapons, tactics, special abilities and status effects. Earn coins and skill orbs to upgrade your kit and build an unbeatable team.
A retro-styled action-platformer inspired by the Nintendo games of its makers’ childhood, Shovel Knight is nostalgia done right. It looks and feels authentic to the period that it reveres, but it’s creative with the source material. The result is a game that feels like a forgotten classic from the early 90s, rather than one of umpteen derivative retro knock-offs.
There’s not much we can say at this point when it comes to the untitled Yoshi game. The series is well beloved by gamers of old and new with the character featured in a number of his own video games throughout the years.
The Nintendo Switch has had an absolutely incredible first eight months and has amassed an impressive library of AAA first party games and indie darlings. As year one is winding down, we thought now would be a perfect time to create our first (of many) Top 25 lists for Nintendo’s hybrid console.
Giving the old formula a bit of a refresh, this game sees the traditional Power Ups replaced with a new companion for Mario called Cappy. This sentient hat is Mario’s weapon and friend and he can be used to possess enemies and objects to solve puzzles and defeat foes.
If you plan to buy a lot of the Switch Game Cards, you can either keep the games stored in their not-quite pocketable cases, or you can look into a $10 Game Card Case that lets you keep your whole library in one compact place.
If you’ve been playing Minecraft: Nintendo Edition, you may have discovered that you can’t split your Joy-Con controller to share with a friend in multiplayer mode. Looks like it’s time to invest in that second L/R Joy-Con pack. These Joy-Cons are almost as elusive as the Switch itself, especially the neon model, but they are still available at some places, and restock faster than the Switch.
Turn-based combat has been at the core of nearly every popular Pokémon video game. But when Pokkén Tournament debuted for the Wii U in 2016, players got their first taste of what it’s like to battle Pokémon melee-style outside of the few playable characters in Super Smash Bros. The new version of Bandai Namco’s Tekken and Pokémon mashup brawler for the Switch is even better, especially considering it addresses some of its predecessors’ biggest shortcomings. Most notably, Pokkén Tournament DX adds more playable Pokémon and a new three versus three team battle mode, among other changes.
Another good one from Nintendo Switch! The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a randomly generated action-shooter that features rogue-like elements and heavy RPG. In game, all you need to do is to follow Isaac on his journey to find bizarre treasures that change his form and give him supernatural powers for fighting off droves of mysterious creatures. As a player, you need to discover these secrets and fight the Isaac way to safety.
Essentially a millennial-early-adulthood simulator. Stuck in a crap town with no direction, friends band together to find meaning and laughter in life. Its smirk-inducing dialogue, and the honesty and humour with which is handles difficult themes such as mental illness, lead to some great intimate moments between characters whose lives you will genuinely care about.
But then there’s what other developers are bringing to the table, and there’s simply so much to choose from. From the smaller indie titles like Super Meat Boy, Human Fall Flat and Overcooked to the big budget ports like FIFA 18, Skyrim and Minecraft.
As a port of a Wii U port of a Japanese arcade game it’s no wonder Pokkén Tournament’s release on Switch has slipped under the radar. Make no mistake, this is one of the console’s finest fighting games to date. A more traditional alternative to the motion-controlled Arms, it sees you squaring off against other Pokémon in button-mashing fashion.
No console gaming experience is complete without a button-mashing romp through a destructible LEGO world, and LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is the best on the market at the moment. Don’t let the fact that it’s a sequel put you off. This game stands a full head and shoulders higher than its predecessor (which is also awesome). The story is new. The level design is clever. And it’s got buckets of that classic tongue-in-cheek LEGO humour. Bash your way through hours of gameplay solo or with a friend.
