Matt has been an avid gamer since he first ventured to Zebes in Super Metroid. If he's not there, he's probably racking his mind over a puzzler, running through a JRPG, or grinding Dark Souls again. You can find him at your local bookstore, disc golf course, or friendly Smash Bros. tournament otherwise. With a background in Linguistics and Creative Writing, he loves writing about anything from gaming to semiotics.

Despite its fun art style and great arcade feel, Soccer Slammers doesn’t capture the magic and spirit of the sport it emulates.

Owlboy is exactly the kind of game the Switch lives for.

Bloodborne #4: Titan Comics Closes The First Chapter

The conclusion of The Death of Sleep is an intriguing end to a well-orchestrated spin on the Bloodborne universe.

A pixelated hack-n’-slash with light RPG elements, Phantom Trigger is a fast-paced, delightfully difficult, and exceedingly fun adventure.

Nintendo Labo Variety Kit Review: Imagination and Creativity

As the tech advances and Nintendo goes back to the lab, I think we will continue to see Labo grow. I am keen to see where this goes.

BAFL – Brakes Are For Losers Review: Good Fun, But Not Much Else

BAFL - Brakes Are For Losers is the latest racing game to come to Nintendo Switch, and it doesn’t quite have the staying power of the others.
