Six years after its release, Skyrim still manages to be relevant. Between the 2016 remaster, the upcoming VR version, and now a Switch port, it’s hard to forget about The Elder Scrolls V, and that’s a testament to how absorbing an RPG it is. With the addition of instant portability on Switch, it’s even harder to put this high quality port down.
Skyrim is one of the best Switch ports currently available, though it’s not too surprising considering the game’s age. It runs smoothly with a rock-solid frame rate both in smaller spaces and in the overworld. Text can be a little small when playing in handheld mode, though it still [...]
Very few sports struggle to survive the transition from real-life to video game like cricket does. Cricket is perceived as slow and long; some might even call it a little bit boring. Cricket video games have often suffered similar problems, often weighed down by cumbersome, complex controls and glacial pacing when compared to the likes of a FIFA or a Madden.

It’s also pretty much the most Lego game [...]
Like the prequel trilogy before it, Battlefront 2 is already a divisive piece of Star Wars lore. There’s no doubt it’s a flawed experience, carrying with it glaring inadequacies and, at times, ham-fisted storytelling and convoluted mechanics. But despite its blemishes, Battlefront 2 is also a game that showcases the things that make Star Wars the epic space opera it is: wonder, redemption, and most of all, whimsical fun.
As any Star Wars fan can attest, there’s something magical about that galaxy far, far away. Whether you’re visiting vibrant planets in the galaxy’s remote reaches, piloting a Tie Fighter through the stunning [...]
