  3. If you didn't catch this quirky spin off on the Wii, great news hot shot. Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon is out now on PS4 and Switch. Blurb: Square Enix Ltd., today announced that Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY!, the brand-new game in the popular Chocobo’s Dungeon series, is now available digitally for the Nintendo Switch™ and the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system. In Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! players can explore mysterious dungeons and take on dangerous monsters whilst enjoying a deep and engaging story. Within this unusual dungeon, the rules are simple: every time you enter, the world around you changes shape and time only moves forward whenever Chocobo takes an action! Moving, attacking or using an item all advance time, so play tactically and think of a plan to overcome the enemies one step (or kick!) at a time. Players can play Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! alone, using defeated monsters or allies to help aid them with the new buddy system, or let Chocobo use a variety of classic FINAL FANTASY® jobs such as Knight, White Mage, Black Mage and more to use new abilities and overcome the challenge. Additionally, an extra player can join in the fun with simultaneous co-operative multiplayer, meaning no Chocobo will be left behind! Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon EVERY BUDDY! is available now as a digital download for the Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4 system. As an added bonus, all players who purchase the game will receive the Buddy Chocobo Alpha DLC item for use in-game

    Rad Rodgers: Radical Edition Review

    I love 2D side scrollers. I love silly, cheesy throw backs to my earlier years. So, you would think I would enjoy a 2D side scrolling shooter that is full to the brim with cheesy throwbacks to what I thought cool meant in my youth, and you would be right. Bring on Rad Rodgers Radical Edition! Rad Rodgers found plenty of success on PC. Then the success continued over onto other consoles thanks to the way the game played and tweaked the nostalgic bug in many of us. Now it has landed on the Switch called Rad Rodgers Radical Edition with a few bonuses including co-op, new levels, enemies, and mini games, also released as a free upgrade for anyone who owns the game elsewhere. Rad Rodgers tells the story of Rad who is a boy living the life of many children. One of these children like playing video games but is a slave to his enforced bed time. One night Rad is sucked into his console where he meets Dusty, a version of his console with two arms and a grumpy old action hero persona. This relationship is the game’s biggest hook, for better and worse. Rad is the kid many of us nerds thought we wanted to be as a kid, a bad ass with a gun, and Dusty is a walking cliché. One-liners, swearing, and a sweeping generalization of 80s action heroes all bound up into one, makes for a funny gimmick for a while, but eventually it does get tired. Fortunately, the gameplay is excellent, so the game’s quirkiness isn’t the whole thing stringing you along. The gameplay consists of a classic left to right 2D platforming shooter, where the platforming and shooting has all been crafted to perfection. A lot of throwbacks like this don’t quite get the gameplay right as they spend too much time on the jokes, but Rad Rodgers consistently felt form start to finish like a polished game. Levels are all colourful and beautiful to look at thanks to its bold colours with crisp environmental design. Each stage is filled with collectables and enemies to kill, while naturally in the throwback to old times, giving you high scores to achieve. Another throwback, if you choose to play it that way, is limited lives. Losing all your lives throws you back to the start of the level, which isn’t too punishing, but boy is it frustrating. Rad Rodgers does what it aims to do, well. It is a fun, silly throwback in every way, but with 2019 quality graphics, that is so damn fun to play. Simple gun upgrades and minigames like a pinball table mix things up a bit, but the game does get a little tired by the end. It is easy to recommend for anyone looking to platform and shoot themselves way through an adolescent dream.

    Google's Stadia has been announced

    Google has announced it's anticipated gaming platform, and it's not a console. Stadia is a streaming platform that uses a browser and very little local processing power to have games looking great. Little is known how the service will work, or what it will cost, but it sounds intriguing and the controller looks nice. The questions that will need to be answered after launch is how will it run on varying qualities of internet.

    OlliOlli: Switch Stance Review

    OlliOlli delighted many in 2014 as this pixelated side scrolling skateboarding physics game hit the indie scene, followed by OlliOlli 2: Welcome to OlliWood in 2015 doing the same but slightly better. Now six years later it has been released as a package for the Switch as OlliOlli Switch Stance, and it’s as delightful as ever. If you haven’t played the games yet, they are more like physics based endless runners with a skateboarding theme rather than being a pure skateboarding game. Your skater is always moving from left to right, and you need to make sure he has enough speed to clear obstacles, using your timing to jump, trick, then land to make sure he stays upright. Doing tricks nets you more points, and you need to keep the momentum up to get the most points. It’s simple to learn, tough as all hell to master. The toughest part of OlliOlli is making sure you get enough speed on the ground to keep your momentum going to get to the end of a level. Completing challenges is fun and addictive, but the first dozen times I played a level I struggled to get to the end of one thanks to its fast pace, brutal series of obstacles. The obstacles are usually on screen for a split second before you get flung from your skateboard making it frustratingly addictive. The levels are short, set across fun and interesting settings, but the challenges are what makes the game so re-playable. You want to link up tricks and hit collectables to complete each challenge so you can unlock the more extra difficult levels. Doing so makes you take extra gambles resulting in the many fails. Fortunately, the devs at Roll7 like their fans, so if you complete a challenge and don’t beat the level, it still ticks that off for you. It is important to thrash the first game before you tackle OlliOlli 2: Welcome to OlliWood. This is because although the gameplay and look still absolutely holds up, moving back from the second game is way harder thanks to its introduction of the manual. The manual means you land on the ground on two wheels which is a trick that you use to link up your combo with a series of tricks and it’s brutal moving back to not having that in your repertoire. Because the game has such an insane pace, and because you don’t see far past the boarder, you get good at reacting with split second button prompts. This is awesome once you adapt to the game but mobbing back from Welcome to Olliwood to the original is brutally tough. This is because it keeps making you try to land manuals which don’t exist. If you have played the games to death and aren’t interested in replaying them in their original state, then the pack won’t offer you anything. But if revisiting these amazingly addictive games, or seeing them for the first time, then OlliOlli Switch Stance is an easy recommendation. It’s so easy to fall back into the groove and lose many hours as you replay the levels for hours. Blair received a code for review
