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).
Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn is dropping on June 5th, 2018! This game has been a long time coming, and for those who purchased NBA Playgrounds before June 2017 you will get Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn for free! Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn was crowdfunded on Indiegogo at $450,000 in early 2014. Shaq has said of the original: "It’s like a bad dream you can’t forget. You wake up and say, ‘Get out my head!’" Even Saber Interactives own teasers for the sequel have said how bad the original was and promises that this version will be "better than the old one." Below is video dropped today with the official release date.
NBA Playgrounds has relaunched on Nintendo Switch as a $9.99 Enhanced Edition (on sale for 50% off until until January 18th, then the price returns to normal). This new version replaces the original May release and it finally brings Challenge Mode, the game's online mode which has been available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC all this time, to Switch. Developer Saber Interactive promised to patch in online play but has opted to release a new version of the arcade basketball game instead. You can download it now via the Switch eShop, and is free for those who purchased the original game. Not only does Enhanced Edition include online play, it also features all of the game's post-launch content as well some new additions, like a revamped rebounding system and a hundred new players. This new edition of NBA Playgrounds is a standalone title separate from the original version of the game and must be downloaded independently through the Nintendo eShop (the upgraded edition can be identified by a golden frame around the game’s icon in the eShop). Players can safely delete the old version of NBA Playgrounds after downloading this upgraded edition but should be careful not to delete their existing game saves, which will be automatically converted and playable in the upgraded version of the title after installing. Back in June, Saber also promised to offer Switch owners who had already purchased the original NBA Playgrounds a free copy of . The developer has reassured fans they will still receive their free copies.
