    • 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).

Welcome to NintendoRadar @The Badger

I’m playing a lot of Hyrule Warriors lately. I would certainly recommend picking that one up. Have you played Odyssey yet? That’s another must have.

Thanks! I want to finish BOTW before I buy Odyssey, but that’s definitely on my list. I love MK8. I’ll check out hyrule warriors for sure.

Just be warned: if you are a completionist like me, BotW will take quite some time to finish. I bought it at launch, and I haven’t finished it yet. I’m getting every Korok seed, and I’m in no rush to beat it and have to wait years for the next Zelda. 

Hyrule Warriors isn’t for everyone, but I think I can safely say that if you like what you see in video reviews, you will like the game. 

I like MK8, but I’ve barely had time to play it. In fact, while I’m hoping for a big E3, I don’t see how I can make time for any new games.

Hey welcome to the community :) missed your post! Blimey, what good games are there for the Switch? LOADS, far too many :P I did just pick up Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon today which is great if you love Castlevania.

Here's some other great games out that I can think of at the top of my head:

Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze
Skyrim
Doom
Kirby Star Allies
MarioKart
Mario Odyssey
Bayonetta 2
Celeste
Golf Story
Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle
Mr Shifty
Rocket League
Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment
Sonic Mania
Steamworld Dig 2
Stardew Valley

Thanks for the welcome :)

I do want to get Tropical Freeze, I’ve heard great things about it. And also Mr Shifty!

I’ll check out some more of the titles you mentioned too. Thanks
