    • 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).

Which game should I get?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to get a new game for my Switch and I don't know which game to get out of , Mario Kart 8, Splatoon 2, Hyrule Warriors or Xenoblade.

Please help me decide.

That's a tough one, I'm assuming you already have Zelda. I say Splatoon 2 if you want to have fun playing online all the time and having alot of replayability. But if you want a really rich single player experience go for Xenoblade. I also hear Hyrule warriors is great though! Id probs go with Splatoon or Hyrule warriors as I have the other 2.

Mario Kart is a lot of fun, you can play online but I find it better as a couch co op.

Splatoon is great fun, but it's basically just an online multiplayer. Keep in mind that come this fall we're expecting that you will have to pay for Nintendo's online services which if you don't want to do may render Splatoon all but useless to you.

I haven't played Hyrule Warriors, hack and slash games tend to not be my jam but I've heard good things and eventually I will pick it up.

Xenoblade looks great as well, I haven't got it yet only because I'm trying to collect a variety of type of games, for now BotW fills the open world spot I have in my collection.
