    • 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).

Who else is picking up Crash Bandicoot on Switch?

Recommended Posts

As soon as this was announced on PS4 I wanted it on Switch and my wish has been granted. It's coming out on the 26th of June. Anyone picking it up? :D

Well, I got it for my PS4 upon release and have barely made a dent in the first game. I feel that if I had it on my Switch I would have far more hours put in to the game by now. I also have realized, since getting my Switch, that I prefer platformers when they are played on a handheld. Not sure why that is, maybe it is because I can hold the screen mere inches away from my face or if it is because I feel that I have more control of my charater, but regardless I will probably end up getting this for my Switch as well. I am a PS man, through and through, so it goes without saying that Crash is my homie. Also, a while back we had a thread on this game and how the community felt about remastering classic games. I will say that the game feels exactly the same, but looks beautiful. Crash's fur looks so fluffy.

I completely agree with you there I also got it for Ps4 and I finished the first one to relieve nostalgia and it's a very solid game though it's a different experience modern gaming is so pick up and play or move on and back in the day I had so few games growing up I had to get good at them and/ or  replay them.

Going back to crash one with the auto save instead of only saving on completion of bonus stages from the original ps1 edition along side the rage I experienced made me appreciate how I was ever able to beat crash 1 as a kid xD 

All in all for the price your getting three great games, alot of content difficult but fair and a style of game never really replicated since.
