NewsLetter 11-2021

Hello there, my dear Patron! Nice to see you here in our latest Newsletter looking back at all that happened on the site since then, starting March 22nd until March28th of 2021.

So if you haven’t had time to read in the past weeks, here’s all that was published, all wrapped in a nice package. So get yourself a cup of coffee (or tea of course), kick back and enjoy!


Code: Realize Wintertide Miracles (Switch Review) – Two Thumbs Up!

Visual Novel (US $39.99 | EU € 39,99 | UK £35.99)

CJCode: Realize is a classic in the visual novel genre, particularly among titles that have been localized to English. If you haven’t played it yet, you probably will at some point. Unlike the original title, where some of the paths were quite aggravating to me (*cough* Saint Germain *cough*) I found this one to be filled with mostly light-hearted fluff that was a delight to play, mixed with some longer more action-oriented tales. There are a few scenarios I wasn’t crazy about, but overall this title is filled with feel-good romantic silliness that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town (Nintendo Switch) – Two Thumbs Up!

Farming Simulation (US $49.99 | UK £44.99 | EU € 49,99)

Yvonne: Overall, a very complete package that will sometimes leave you wishing for more hours in the day, in real life and in the game. There’s so much to do, that Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town is not only a farming simulation game but also a management game. The only way to let the farm thrive and have time for all the other activities is to plan ahead and make use of your little factory of Makers and recipes for crafting as best you can.

As I love a good farming simulation game and am in my element in management games, it’s not difficult for me to give Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town it’s rating. The game has the right rhythm of keeping you interested by adding more new things at the right time too.

I know there are more good games in the genre available on Switch, but in my opinion, this one is ace!

Raiders of the Lost Island Review (Nintendo Switch) – We Like It

Action Party (US $12.99 | UK £9.69 | EU € 12,99)

JamesFor all my critique I actually walked away from Raiders quite happy. While many game developers who focus on multiplayer still go for the boring tried and tested deathmatch or battle royale boredom that floods the market, Raiders of the Lost Island is trying something new. And despite its flaws, it succeeds in being a fun experience.

This is easy to recommend if you’re able to share this ideally with up to four other players, it will certainly make for a good game night.  It’s sure to make you laugh and giggle for an hour or two and then possibly make you want to do a pirate jig. I know that’s what I am going to go do now!

Lost Lands 2: The Four Horsemen Review (Nintendo Switch) – We Like It

Puzzle Adventure (US $6.99| UK £5.99 | EU € 6,99)

PaulaLost Lands 2: The Four Horsemen is a typical point and click, hidden object game. Nothing much different in this game to all the other many games of the same genre that are already out there.

If point and click, hidden object games are your jam, then you will find what you are looking for in Lost Lands 2: The Four Horsemen.

Rip Them Off Review (Nintendo Switch) – We’re Not Sure

Tower Defence Puzzler (US $8.99 | UK £6.69 | EU € 7,39)

Rio: Unfortunately, the difficulty and not grasping it fully means I probably won’t be touching Rip them off again. However, I’m sure there are people that will get it and will enjoy it, I’m just not one of them.

A Day Without Me Review (Nintendo Switch) – We Don’t Like It

Puzzle Adventure (US $5.99 | UK £5.39| EU € 5,99)

Paula: A Day Without Me is a weird game where you stumble around clueless with little idea of what’s happening or has happened. The issue I had with the joy-cons continually disconnecting did not help in the least or lead to an enjoyable gaming experience. At the moment with this being one of the problems with the game I can’t recommend it.
