Hello! My name is GBD and I love everything Nintendo (well, just about).
We need to gauge interest before moving forward.
Tales of eerie environments and bloody beasts have been terrifying and entertaining horror fans for centuries. And while books, movies, and TV shows have each put their own spin on the genre, it’s video games that provide the most immersive horror experiance. Or so I’ve been told.
The Pikmin series is one of those low-key Nintendo franchises that’s often requested by fans, but hasn’t seen many releases since its initial induction. It doesn’t quite have the pull of series like Zelda or Pokemon, but the games are well loved by players and critics alike for their gorgeous environments and…

The Wii U and 3DS have seen their fair share of updated classics in recent years, but most of those title were in desperate need of a face lift. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe isn’t a big leap from it’s 2014 source material, but it’s certainly the definitive…

The Switch’s first rhythm title is also its first “handheld only” offering. While VOEZ features a vast library of songs and sleek presentation, it comes with a hefty entrance fee.
