Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! are upcoming games for the Nintendo Switch that are scheduled to be released on November 16th, 2018. Much of the gameplay will be different to resemble the mobile hit of 2016, Pokemon Go. The announcement trailer was shown just shortly before E3 and now they are up for pre-order. Here, I will tell you my thoughts and details on what to expect.

A Few Characters I’d Love To See In Smash!

Published June 12, 2018 by Amanda B. Greene

Super Smash Bros. 5 is rumored to be an entirely new game for the Nintendo Switch, and if that is true, I hope we get to see many of the changes and improvements and perhaps start seeing character reveal trailers to fuel the hype train all over again. We already know that the Inklings will join in on the fight, but who else will smash their way in? GameInformer has already done their suggestions among many others, so why not add to the conversation? Here are a few of my character ideas…

For my birthday on April 6th, I was gifted with Monster Hunter World for the PS4 and I have been enjoying it ever since, playing it whenever I get the chance.

Instead of doing another “First Impressions,” I thought about how it would be interesting to talk about how Capcom was successful in creating a certain feel or atmosphere that engages players to get excited about hunting giant monsters. So, here we are at the Canteen… let’s get started.

Review: Persona 5

Published May 16, 2017 by Amanda B. Greene

Persona 5 is a fantastic Japanese, turn-based role-playing game that builds up from previous installments of the Persona franchise. Almost everything about it is well done from the story and characters to the environments and puzzles. Some things could be improved on or changed like how you’re forced to go to sleep after diving into the Palaces or Mementos. But it is mostly perfect for those who enjoy dungeon crawling and fighting Shadows. There will be some slight spoilers of the beginning, so you’ve been warned.

Special: What Do You Think Of Amiibos?

Published March 5, 2015 by Amanda B. Greene

At first, I wasn’t planning on buying any amiibos, but eventually I hopped on the rocky train. They’re surprisingly good quality at a reasonable price. I would never go to places like eBay to get them selling over a hundred dollars though.

Their functionality needs to be improved on, since they are mostly for Super Smash Bros. at the moment.

I like having figurines of my favorite characters that I couldn’t afford otherwise, but with the lack of supply versus high demand, they’re becoming increasingly more difficult to obtain. Nintendo needs to fix this, so people don’t have to scramble to multiple stores in unlikely hopes of pre-ordering each one. It would be nice if I could just stop by Gamestop anytime to pick up any of the amiibos I want off the shelves without the hassle.

I know this is an old and on-going conversation, but what do you think of them? Do you have any or plan on collecting some?

Special: What do you think of the “New” 3DS?

Are you getting one right away? If so, which one? I’m personally waiting until they do other special offers or editions come out plus I need more than one exclusive (Xenoblade Chronicles) to sway me into getting an upgrade. Don’t get me wrong – it looks nice, especially with the added C-Stick and the face-tracking 3D. I will probably buy it eventually when I have enough money. Tell me what you think below.

Also, I have yet to finish my reviews for Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS) and Captain Toad: Tracker (Wii U). I apologize for taking so long on those, I’ll get around to them soon. Hope you have a great night!
