CA! Radio Episode 127: Time for a Switch!

This week, Chuck, Omar, and I discuss Omar’s new Switch ownership (welcome to the club!) and his unfortunate purchase of Puyo Puyo Tetris, while I try my damnedest to sell him on Thumper. Chuck fills us in on Alien: Covenant, I ramble on about the Telltale games I’ve been catching up on, and Omar educates this console heathen on the PC-exclusive dungeon crawler, Starcrawlers.

I brought up next week’s talking point, in which we’ll discuss so-called “mediocre” and AA games we’ve enjoyed over the years. Essentially, games that we continued playing because of unique ideas or mechanics, despite them not being technical marvels or big-budget titles.

If you have anything that fits that description, feel free to sound off in the comments with a brief two or three sentence answer and we’ll do our best to read it during our next recording on Tuesday.

As always, thanks for listening!

[REVIEW] TumbleSeed

TumbleSeed
Developer: aeiowu
Publisher: aeiowu
Available on: Nintendo Switch (reviewed), PS4, PC
Price: $14.99

It’s rare for a game to infuriate me to the point of rage quitting every single time I play it, but where many others have failed TumbleSeed did not. The number of curse words uttered in a single sitting increased exponentially as time went on, which is deceiving for a game that looks and sounds this adorable. However, despite its novel ideas, the wonderful aesthetic and calming tunes, TumbleSeed’s borderline absurd level of randomized difficulty, even by rogue-like standards, severely got in the way of my enjoyment.

Git gud, indeed.

[REVIEW] 1-2-Switch

1-2-Switch
Developer: Nintendo
Publisher: Nintendo

Nintendo made an incredibly smart decision in 2006 when they bundled in Wii Sports with their Wii console as a way of showcasing its accessibility and functionality. The gamble clearly paid off, as the Wii went on to sell a staggering 101 million units during its 9-year lifespan.
