Review Furi (Switch) | WayTooManyGames

Bunnies, katanas and EDM

WTMG’s Leo Faria writes: “The main issue with Furi lies in its short duration. While it’s a somewhat challenging title, and some fights can take a handful of attempts, there isn’t much else to the game other than the fights themselves. Sure, you can unlock a speedrun mode and attempt your best against all the bosses all over again, as well as varied difficulty settings, but that’s all that’s available for you: ten (very entertaining) fights, end of story. Furi can be a bit replayable, but its severely short duration hinders what could have been a phenomenal action title, something even better than it already is. There aren’t that many slightly harder games out there for the Switch, so if you’re looking for a bit of a challenge, Furi is for you. Just make sure to remember that this challenge won’t last for long.” read more

Casual Corner: Go Plane

In hindsight, calling ourselves “Hardcore Gamer” pigeonholed what we could cover.

It’s for that reason and that reason only — and because somebody registered the Casual Gamer domain before we had a chance too — that every month we present to you a quick look at a mobile game that deserves your attention regardless of its place on the gaming spectrum. read more

Nintendo Labo: Overpriced or innovative?

Weird Nintendo is often the best Nintendo, or so it is said. After all, two of its biggest successes (the Wii and the Switch) are far from ordinary consoles. Now, with a year of huge Switch sales behind it, Nintendo is getting even weirder with Labo — cardboard accessories that kids can built themselves and use to immerse themselves in a game’s world. So far, Nintendo has shown off a mini piano, fishing rod, robot fighting suit, remote-controlled robot walkers … and what amounts to a cardboard house with your Switch screen built right into the middle. All of these are controlled in some way by the Switch Joy-Cons. read more

It’s no secret that Blizzard has been a main contender in the ever-growing esports scene; however, the Overwatch League is redefining the scene as a whole–for the better. Managers, trainers and player drafting is all meshing with that of the sports scene. The last incredible step Blizzard Entertainment made toward this mesh was broadcasting the first “Heroes of the Dorm” tournament on ESPN. This event was a collegiate league, with the winnings being a full scholarship, and pitted many college teams against each other in Blizzard Entertainment’s MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. read more
