The Nintendo Switch was finally released on March 3rd. Supply hasn’t been a disaster like the NES Classic Mini Whatever, but it is a new console so it’s still going to take some time to get the system into the hands of everybody who wants one. Because I’m someone who managed/decided to get a Switch on launch day, I will lay out my experiences so far. Behold!
When you were younger, what was your favorite type of music? Did you have a cool older sibling who got you started in the right direction or did you get lost in the doldrums of Kidz Bop and the like? No matter what you listened to in your parents cars, if you’re reading this site, chances are the music you heard most as a kid was video game music. That’s where bands like Bit Brigade come in.

Through the story of a feline ne’er-do-well and her loser friends, the trio at Infinite Fall synthesizes humor and horror into something that I find more […]
Written by Joe Ahart, Drew Beyer, and Andrew Busch // Edited and Uploaded by Andrew Busch Three of us spent last week playing through Night in the Woods and writing these reviews separate from one another. We only started to have a conversation about the game once we had written our thoughts so none of these opinions were dependent on someone else’s views. […]
Written by Drew Beyer // Edited and Uploaded by Andrew Busch My mom is better than me at Banjo-Kazooie. She’s probably better than you at it, too, considering her most recent play through clocks in at seven hours and nineteen minutes, which ranks her in the top two hundred in the world according to speedrun.com. When she texted me to […]
Written by the wonderful Drew Beyer // Uploaded and Edited by Andrew Busch (Note: the following contains minor spoilers for Playdead’s Inside- I tried to not spoil anything, but it’s hard to talk about a story without giving things away) It’s so late at night some might say it’s early in the morning. My friends Andrew, Ian and I run […]
