    • I finally got around to finishing Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn and I have to say I had a lot of fun with it. I don't mind the crude, verging on racist, humor and the play style is reminiscent of early 90s beat 'em ups. There's even a move where you hit A to land a size 22 kick that launches the enemy straight into the screen just like TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Shaq Fu never takes itself seriously, poking fun at crowd funding and the game itself. All of the old beat 'em up tropes are present and accounted for; endless enemies, random things in the background and foreground to smash, the odd object you can use as a weapon until it breaks, etc. At $20 USD in the eshop I think that the price is a bit steep for the amount of game time you'll get from it, if you play it on easy you can walk through this game in one sitting and I don't see much replay value in it. Harder difficulties does make it a longer process though. There is a DLC pack called "Barack Fu"  that opens up a new story line where you play as President Obama, the humor continues as one of "Dirty Barry's" moves lets you call in a "Peace Prize" drone strike. Nintendo's eShop says it released on June 5, but I can't seem to find it. The game's website says that physical copies come with a code to download a "bonus game" later this month. I haven't seen what that game is yet but I would suspect that it is the DLC so if you really want to fight as Barack Obama the physical version might save you a bit of money. Overall I give Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn a solid 5 out of 7 Size 22 Reebok Pumps. Pick it up if you find it on sale, and you enjoy old school beat 'em ups (think TMNT IV style with some off color humor and a stupid plot).

Dear 2K, let's talk about WWE 2K19 on Switch.

Recommended Posts

I think we all appreciate your desire for ultra realism with graphics and presentation, even if some of us would rather just have a fun wrestling game like No Mercy or HCTP. I know your goal has always been to replicate what we see on TV. By all means keep doing your thing on PS4/XBO/PC. But this 15fps business is no good. So if you're unable to give us that level of graphic fidelity on Switch, that's ok! Just... don't.

Why not work out a new, simple rendering mode that focuses less on texture detail (I don't think we need to see stitches on pants), less on fully 3D rendered crowds (their animations are terrible anyway and the crowd itself serves no purpose in these games-- but that's an issue for another day) and instead focuses more on a clean aesthetic with framerate in mind. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say we don't need hyper realistic graphics in our wrestling games. Hell, a lot of us are hoping Fire Pro makes it's way to switch.

Get this notion out of your heads that the only good graphics are realistic graphics. BOTW shows how simpler graphics can at times be more pleasing to look at that hyper realistic graphics. Games with a strong art style are often better looking and age far slower than games that are trying to look real. My hope for 2K19 is that you still put in on Switch, for starters, and secondly that you'll consider broadening your visual scope a bit to make a great looking, albeit not necessarily super realistic, wrestling game that plays well.
