Has anyone played Worms W.M.D on the Switch yet? I really enjoyed Worms back in the day, I can clearly remember spending hours on it way back in 1995. Since then I have maybe played 30 minutes of Worms Armageddon but haven't touched this series in years. I was excited to see it on the Switch and intended to buy it when the physical release came. Well, last month Team17 said that they will not be pursuing a physical copy any longer so I suppose digital is the only way to get my Worms fix. My question is, is Worms W.M.D. worth $30?
So, multiple sources have confirmed that Blizzard will be releasing a Switch port of Diablo III. There was a lot of commotion after Blizzard tweeted a gif of someone 'switching' a Diablo nightlight on and off. The internet was quick to react and picked up on the subtle hint, afterwards Blizzard played dumb about the situation. Now there is a source quoted by Eurogamer saying that the Diablo III title is in fact in development for the Nintendo Switch. I think that this is another great call for Nintendo. Perfect game for the Switch.
I am going to begin by acknowledging that the only reason I ended up purchasing this game was due to it being on sale for around $8 on the Nintendo Store. When I first heard about The Flame in the Flood I was intrigued, but not quite sold, especially after reading mixed reviews across the internet. After seeing this reduced price I decided now was the time to take a break from my many Skyrim adventures and try and survive in indie studio The Molasses Flood's The Flame in the Flood. Fast forward a couple hours and my heart is racing as my raft careens through the rapids of this never ending river full of hazardous remains of a society that once was. My four survival elements are all dangerously low: Hunger, Thirst, Warmth, and Energy. I also have a wicked case of poison ivy. My only food source has spoiled and will poison me if I eat it, and the only water I have needs to be filtered before I can drink. I have been playing the game for about an hour, and I must say, things went poorly pretty quickly. While the game does a pretty good job of explaining the mechanics of the game, I was still a little slow to learn how to maneuver my raft to ensure I got the best supplies possible. Navigating your raft through the river is a integral part of your survival because at times there are choices to be made. Do I go left to the two smaller resource caches, or do I paddle hard to the right and stop at the one larger cache? Once you arrive at these small ports and islands along this mysterious and unforgiving river, you must scavenge supplies and make the most effective use of them in order to increase your survival gauges as much as possible before heading back out onto the water. This is the entire dynamic of the gameplay so far as I can tell. It consists of rafting down the river and then scrounging up supplies, and then back to the river again. It is an unforgiving environment with hazards from things like rain and insect bites, to wolves and bears. There are also lots of things to craft that are surprisingly satisfying to use, like the first time you snare one of those cute bunnies that appear at most of your stops along the way, but not all. My favorite element of the game is the storyline, which is Dark Souls-ish in the way that makes the gamer piece together some sort of answer to the many questions that they have, with little to no answers actually being explicitly laid out by the game. The world has been flooded and everywhere we look we see indication that it has been this way for quite some time. Rusted out cars floating down the river, along with entire homes and shantys of the former denizens of this mysterious place that has been so devastated by this post-flood of apocalyptic proportions. Through my travels I met an old goggle-wearing, shotgun-toting granny, a pair of feral children, and a mysterious grave-digging recluse. Alongside my trusty canine companion, I traversed the wilderness, stayed alive, escaped the tusks of a wild boar, died of starvation, and did it all again. This unforgiving and unique take on the survival genre makes you sweat and keeps up interest by always keeping alive the chance that at the next stop, just a little further along, you will find a nice warm place to rest and to eat. And then, it gives you dandelions. Johnny's score: 8/10 - Buy it! Especially if it is still on sale! Pros: Entertaining to boot. Easy to learn, hard to master. Always a new game due to item randomization. Exciting. Fun. Cons: Quite difficult. Frustrating. Unforgiving. Raft steering controls can be sloppy(but then again rivers are unpredictable!)
FamiTom posted a topic in Nintendo SwitchFOREWORD: In this article, I talk about things that you might already know. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PLAYED SPLATOON 1 and know a decent amount of information, please read the introduction and skip until past the dotted line. Thank you!! So you may have noticed how hyped the Nintendo community was about Splatoon 2. I was among one of those people. Now that the game has actually released, I'm happy to say that it's well worth buying. In this piece of writing, I'll explain why. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qN4w5D2tzME To get something off my chest and out of the way, I'm going to call this game SplaTWOon. Why? Because, dear reader, the pun is RIGHT THERE! Also, it's easier to type. Splatwoon is the game I've been waiting for. From playing online with your friends to the single player story mode, salmon run, and of course, splatfests. Starting with the most basic of all the game modes, you can't go wrong with turf war. For those of you living under a rock, turf war is a game mode where, unlike other shooters, your objective is to shoot the ground and paint as much of the battle arena your team's color as possible. The team that inks the most turf in their color wins. This format works really well, and I find myself having TONS of fun here. This time around, they've added a bunch of new weapons, stages, sub - weapons, features, and mechanics to spice up your average turf war and make it just that extra bit more fun. Some might even go far as to say that turf war is the best game mode and the most fun. Now moving on to ranked mode. Unlocked at level 10, ranked mode includes game modes such as Tower defense, Splat zones and my personal favorite, Rainmaker. Starting with Tower defense here is a very quick run down of all the modes. In tower defense, both teams compete over a tower. once on the tower, it will begin to move towards checkpoint one, two and eventually the enemy base, where you win the game. In splat zones, both teams fight over one zone. If the zone is primarily your color, it will become "your" zone. while it is "your" zone, your team's timer will begin to count down. once the timer reaches zero, your team wins. In Rainmaker, both teams fight over a weapon called the rainmaker. If your team has the rainmaker, the person carrying it has to get it safely across to the other team's base. If the person carrying the Rainmaker dies, the rainmaker is reset once again. This mode adds quite a bit of strategy and the different modes cycle every two hours. Depending on the modes, you might want to change your weapons and clothes accordingly. Each ranked mode has its own ranking, hence the name. This helps Nintendo place you into battles of adequate skill. Which leads me to league battles. -----------------------------------------------SPLATOON 1 PLAYERS READ ON FROM HERE------------------------------------------------------------------------------ League battles are only available once you are at least B- rank on the available mode. This mode is for more serious players, who gain or lose more exp than in ranked mode. You can also play doubles with your friends, which is the best for online if you don't have at least four friends who are all online and willing to play. Now to talk about single player. To be honest, I've heard a lot of people saying that the plot isn't all that good and almost exactly the same as the first game. I won't give any spoilers, but at least for me, It's a fun pastime if I want to stop online mode for a bit, and lets me try out some weapons. I also don't really care that it's the same as splatoon 1 because not many people owned a Wii U anyways. Next up, salmon run. Salmon run is really solid. The game mode consists of you and a team of three other people teleporting to an island. This island is the home to various ugly abominations, called salmonids. Your mission is to kill the special "boss" salmonids and harvest their golden eggs to fulfill your quota. These salmonids come and try to attack you all throughout wave one two and three. If you survive the waves, you win and get some cool rewards that may help you in battle. To round up, I would like to talk about the new features. There aren't many, but one noteworthy one is the new addition of the dual wielding weapons, A.K.A. dualies. I like the fire rate that these new weapons have, and some have tons of power. The sub weapons are good enough, and the rocket launcher special is great when paired with the dualie squelcher's echolocator bombs. The new stages are also really good, and the variety is sure to spice up otherwise boring matches of Splatwoon. My personal favorites are Musselforge Fitness and Humpback Pump Track. All in all, Splatwoon is a fun, great game that you should definitely add to your roster of Nintendo Switch titles. Some might argue that it doesn't have enough differences from Splatoon 1, but hey, all shooter games are like that. Plus, the fact that it's SPLATOON FOR THE SWITCH makes it a great game all on its own. If you have the money and a switch, I would definitely get Splatwoon. But I'm curious. What do you guys think about Splatwoon? Do you think it's a good game? Feel welcome to leave your thoughts and discussions in the thread. I haven't tried a splatfest yet, but Mayo vs. Ketchup starts tomorrow, and maybe I'll make a post on my opinions. Until next time, Stay Fresh!! FISCUS OUT.
So, anyone grab a copy of the remastered Street Figher 2 for their Switch? I am super tempted, but I worry that for the $40 price tag I won't play it that much. If it were $20 I would pick it up without question. It is one of the best fighting games of all time, but how much will I really play it? Anyone already get it/ planning on getting it? What do ya'll think?
