    • 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).

I absolutely love everything about the Steamworld game series!

Recommended Posts

I've been lurking here for a while and like to see people post about games they genuinely enjoyed playing. It always forces me to check out these titles and I figured I would post this just in case some of you haven't considered the Steamworld games yet.

I started with Dig, then Dig 2, and I'm currently finishing off Heist.

Without getting too chatty here, I will say that one amazing thing that the Switch has done for me is get me back into enjoying single player titles. I come from a background of online competitive games and had a hard time falling out of that pocket.

These games are a great example of brilliantly made games that had me hanging onto my switch until my eyes wouldn't stay open any longer. The gameplay is fluid and feels great. The game mechanics are very well thought out and immersive (Dig 2 multiplies in features compared to the first one). I really like the art style and how the games exist in the same universe and share characters/storylines. I honestly have nothing bad to say about any of the titles other than I never wanted any of them to end!

It is worth noting that Heist is very different from the dig games - it is a turn based tactical strategy game - which is quite a departure from the platforming, adventure style of Dig titles. But it is so perfectly executed that even as someone who generally avoids turn based games I can't put this one down.

So if you're looking for a really fun, challenging at times, highly addictive single player experience - definitely check these games out! I would recommend starting with Dig 1 and going from there as it sets a lot of the ground work in terms of story and game play. Also, it's the most "basic" of the three and might seem a little thin if you backtracked.

Hopefully, Image & Form have another handful of sequels in the works!
