  1. Should We Board The Atari Hype Train?

    Agreed. The UI looks great, the way each icon has a pixel drop shadow of varying colors. But, I also agree with @MrMischief. This console is just too ambitious and will most likely fail. Personally, I have no interest in this product as of now. Maybe once we learn more about it something will pique my interest, but for now I'm gettin off this train.
  2. AXIOM VERGE Review

    $19.99 but it was on sale for $17. Not sure if it is still on sale though. I can only visit the games on sale section once a week or so or I will buy far too much stuff that I'll probably never even play!
  3. Wait... Did Someone Win The Switch?

    I can't seem to find anything about the Switch giveaway on the new site. Was the winner chosen and I missed it? Is the contest still going on? Or am I just incapable of navigating this new site?
  4. No virtual console for switch :(

    I feel that they're counting on releasing the retro games as actual game titles, as remastered versions, possibly bundled with the entire series. I think that way would be more lucrative for Nintendo because then they can release them one at a time, build up some hype about how better the game looks and sounds, and then sell it for $39.99 instead of a $10 download of the original game. This is just my gut feeling. Absolutely no evidence to back this up.
  5. AXIOM VERGE Review

    Well, here we are again fellow Radarians. Time for another review of another indie game. In this case, AXIOM VERGE, a game that I have been itching to play for a while and could never bring myself to pull the trigger is our subject. The game falls into the category of 'Metroidvania' style games due to its play-style, graphics, level layout, and progression. Basically, it's a side-scrolling action-adventure game with new areas being accessible through item progression and upgrades to your character. These new areas lead to further new items and progression, which lead to more and more until the map has been filled in and the last monster has been slain. Much like Metoroid titles, AXIOM VERGE is all about figuring out ways to kill the multitude of new monsters & baddies you encounter and ways to gain access to the new areas. The game's story line does not give the player much to go off of from the get-go, but you piece things together slowly to discover a pretty cool timeline of events that involves another dimension, a cosmic presence far greater than our own, and, of course, the salvation of the human race. The game begins simply enough, with you as the protagonist being transported to another dimension seemingly without purpose or reason, and quickly picks up on the fact that you are very much here for a reason and that it was no accident. You have been sent here in order to help a race of bio-mechanical super-beings regain control of their home-world and resume their position of protecting the human race from death and ruin. You explore this bizarre and creepy place and begin to outfit yourself with various alien weaponry and upgrades in order to tackle the new challenges and enemies the game throws at you. It would seem that the inventory panel in the game's pause menu is quite large and has a lot of room for a lot of different weapons and items, which is very intriguing to me. The protagonist, Trace, then blindly follows the orders of these unique beings and ends up fighting for their survival and completing tasks that will prolong their lives. So far so good. I really enjoy AXIOM VERGE. Like, really. I know it would seem that most of my reviews are generally positive ones, but this one is GLOWINGLY POSITIVE. This game is tons of fun. At times I find myself at work or at the gym thinking about the game and its complex level layout and design. There is not one thing about the game that I could complain about. Besides a certain boss battle that was far too easy, the game has officially 'rocked my socks' as the kids say these days. PROS: The Art- Very H.R. Giger inspired, who, for those of you unfamiliar, is the artist behind the creation and design of the xenomorphs from the Alien film series. The monsters and backdrops will make your skin crawl. Very creepy and bizarre. Perfect for the story and style. Love it. (It may be worth mentioning that I am a huge fan of Ridley Scott's ALIEN. I just thought it might be worth mentioning.) The Music- SOOOO FRIGGIN GOOD! This game's music is so good it is hard to explain. Certain tracks will jump out at you and surprise you with how intense they are, and I should also mention sound effects in general. The sounds in the world of AXIOM VERGE will at times make you cringe, but on purpose. The snarls that come from the boss enemies when being struck by your laser blast are perfect representation of an alien fit of rage and pain. The Gameplay- The way the mechanics work in this game are very similar to that of Metroid. Platform jumping and shooting your weapon in your basic 45 degree increments. I felt no issues with the way the game played. My jumps all felt tight and my aim was accurate and deadly(most of the time). The thing about this style of gameplay is that it has already been perfected back in 1987 by a game called Contra. But AXIOM VERGE does more with it than older titles ever could by making the story so far out there and trippy to provide a familiar gaming experience without feeling identical. Other- This game is so perfect for a handheld device to the point where I really don't enjoy playing it any other way. This feels like a game I should have played on my Gameboy back in the day, but much more advanced. Also, I love the main character's face when his dialogue box comes up. He is not some heckin' space marine with a chiseled jaw and a neck like a tree trunk who says things like "Hail to the king, baby!" No, Trace is a nerdy looking scientist with a big nose and a bad haircut. He is not your typical hero, and that's what makes him intriguing. Jeeze! Just writing thsi review makes me want to play the heckin' game! Score: 10/10 (GET IT)
  6. If the game involved anything other than somewhat silly zombie violence, I would say that the delay was warranted, however, since the game looks rather zany and out-there with cartoony looking characters and the mowing down of equally cartoony zombies, I would say no harm, no foul.
  7. Downloaded Yooka-laylee

    I would have to agree with @dahviperman It can be frustrating and at times I easily lose interest. Its a good game and there are tons I like about it, but it just doesn't seem super polished and at times comes off as a beta version or something. I like the game and will one day go back to it to finish it up, but it could have been a better game. I recently got Axiom Verge and am seriously enjoying it. It was 10% off and if you're a fan of Metroid games or Castlevania games then pick it up! It is GREAT. It's like a mix between the Alien films and Contra. Super dope.
  8. No More Shells! - dbrand skins are safe now!

    Now, the question remains: Can I stick this on without air bubbles or affixing it crooked and ruining it right away in an instant fit of frustration and sweaty palms, similar to the way I excel at applying screen protectors? Because I would be interested for sure if I could apply it without screwing it up. I think the natural oils on my mitts are starting to damage the joycon, or at least leaving marks around the circumference of the buttons. Is anyone else experiencing this? I think these skins would be a nice solution to that issue.
  9. Probably one of those super stressed-out, bottle-peeing, Amazon warehouse pickers accidentally gabbed two and didn't notice. That's some good karma! I say keep it!
  10. Short nintendo switch survey! (Switch newcomer)

    HA! I was thinking the same thing. Smells fishy to me.
  11. What metroidvania games do you think is essential

    Axiom Verge
  12. Best peripherals?

    I use my phone charger to charge my Switch pretty often. It is the charger for my Pixel2 which is USB-C on both ends. It's actually the Verizon made charger. No issues at all, in fact, I absolutely love that my phone and my Switch use the same charging cable. Never tried a different dock.
  13. Smash characters

    B-Man has never been a smash character?! Like, how?
  14. Smash characters

    DUDE! That would be great. Or maybe a Toejam and Earl combo character?
  15. Best peripherals?

    Also, be weary of third party docks! Read the attached article from The Verge! https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2018/3/28/17173308/nintendo-switch-third-party-unlicensed-docks-bricked-consoles
