Reviewed on PS4, Available on PC

The year was 2017 and gamers everywhere were faced with a choice.  Maybe one of the hardest choices ever.  Do I buy a Nintendo Switch for the newest entry in The Legend of Zelda? Should I buy multiple RPG’s for the PS4 or Xbox One, waiting for a wider variety of games to arrive for the Switch? Now if you’re like me you may have chosen the latter.  With games such as Horizon Zero Dawn and Persona 5 coming out on PS4 within a few short months of each other, you may have missed another great release: NieR: Automata. Now I know that NieR: Automata was rated very highly by the critics and they may have already swayed you, but let me give those still on the fence that final push.

What’s Good? Week of 5/24/17

No spoilers here, but I certainly enjoyed Samurai Jack Season 5.  Love how all the story elements tied together.  The perfect blend of action, comedy, and stunning art.  My DVR was jam-packed with Martial Arts Content.  Surprise hit Into The Badlands had its finale as well.  Talk about some explosive fight scenes. Happy to hear AMC picked it up again, with 16 Episodes to boot.  Also, Dragon Ball Super Continues to sizzle.  Things started a bit slow, but I’m glad to have stayed with it.  Far as gaming is concerned, My Shopping Cart was heavy, yet my wallet was barely touched.  I took full advantage of the Xbox Backwards Compatibility Sale.  Grabbed several goodies at absolute bargain prices.

NBA PlayGrounds Review: A Different Jam

Real Talk By: KJ

Arcade Fun returns! It’s been a few years since NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Released.  Even longer since EA has given us any kind of NBA Street.  Saber Interactive is stepping-in with NBA Playgrounds.  The house of Shaq-Fu 2 brings us a 2v2 sports game available for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.

Characters are limited at the start.  Open Card Bundles, and reveal new players.  Progression through Playgrounds unlocks Gold Tiered Packs.  The results are always random.  Repeat cards will garner experience points.  Playgrounds doesn’t force fans to pick team-specific lineups, freely pick whoever.  As of this writing 150 athletes can be unlocked.  Not all marquee players (Michael Jordan/Kobe Bryant), but there’s still a solid amount of throwback and new school participants.  Shaq and Allen Iverson lead the charge.

Tumbleseed [Switch] Review: You See Me Rollin’

Real Talk By: Zombie Zac

My recommendation of Tumbleseed comes with a warning: It takes work to like this game. But aren’t games supposed to be a reprieve from work? Yes, ideally games will whisk you away, help you de-stress and administer a steady shot of dopamine straight to the brain. That delicious feeling of reward is there, but only after much determination to master the controls. Continue reading “Tumbleseed [Switch] Review: You See Me Rollin’”
