Ore Creative Becomes Nindie Developer, Bringing Ira to Switch

“A child reaches for the stars, burdened by circumstance. Folks chained by debt, indentured to the powers at large. The year is 1930, mankind is thrust to the stars following after a signal spanning the void of space and time itself.” Yep. That’s enough to get me interested in your game. That’s the description of a new, upcoming game called Ira, from Chicago based developer … Continue reading Ore Creative Becomes Nindie Developer, Bringing Ira to Switch

Dragon Quest Heroes II Demo: PS4 vs. Switch

Dragon Quest Heroes II is easily one of my most anticipated games of the year so when I heard that there was a demo available on the Japanese eShop on Switch I immediately went to download it and play through it. If you played the first game then you’ll know exactly what to expect. You, and a party of three other people run around various environments killing horde up horde of enemies. There are different objectives, that usually revolve around defending a specific point or taking down a specific monster, that you need to complete along the way. The first game was available on PS4 here in the US and the Switch is getting a bundle of the first and second games in one package, though a release date for the US has not yet been announced.

HyperX Cloud Stinger Headset Review

I’m not exactly what you’d call an audiophile. My criteria for a set of headphones has generally been “does it cost $15 or less”, “will it play music or game audio”, “will it not break on day one?”. That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate good audio, just that when it comes to day to day use I’m not as picky about the sound quality as I am ease of use. However, this new headset that I received has changed that.

With the release of Switch, Kingston Technology reached out to us to see if we’d be interested in taking a look at some of their products and test them out with the system. We agreed and they sent along a very nice, budget friendly pair of headphones for us to test out.
