Review: Winds of Change – A Polished, Absorbing, Animal-Filled Visual Novel

Do you hear that?

Shall we get this out of the way up front? This game features ‘furry’ characters. If you’re already heading to the comments to issue a humorous barb, please re-examine your life. Winds of Change is an accomplished, heartfelt and enjoyable visual novel that does not deserve to be held up against the invented, ludicrous stigma of being furry. Righto, cheers. That’s that. Let’s get on with the review, then.

Visual novels can be difficult to critique as games; the meat of the experience is with the writing and your enjoyment thereof, so all that can really be covered elsewhere is the UI, performance and possibly visuals. If we come out of the gate, then, and say that Winds of Change has all the features you’d want from a visual novel married with a good, compelling story, that’s about all some of you will need.

What Did You Think Of The Mario + Rabbids Sequel Reveal? Creative Director Davide Soliani Wants To Know

“Just checking if we are all good. Are we good?”.

One guy who is probably the most excited about Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope is the creative director David Soliani.

As you might recall, he’s the one who was crying tears of joy when his original Mario + Rabbids game was introduced by Shigeru Miyamoto at E3 2017.

Mini Review: Super Soccer Blast: America VS Europe – Simple But Sloppy Soccer

Boot it.

The heavily delayed Euro 2020 tournament is just around the corner, and football fever is once again permeating the homes of countries worldwide. The Switch has several decent football games, but with EA launching frankly embarrassing yearly ‘legacy’ updates to its FIFA series on Switch, there are certainly gaps in the field for a midfield dynamo or a winning striker. Super Soccer Blast: America vs Europe is a straight-up arcade take on the sport; one that appeals with its overall simplicity, but stumbles when it comes to authenticity and engagement.

The game takes understandable liberties with its team and player roster, including team names like London replacing the more familiar Chelsea F.C, along with completely made up player names in an effort to evade the wrath of UEFA. The roster nevertheless feels fairly limited in scope, and there’s absolutely no option available here to alter your team’s formation, so what you see is what you get.

Kingdom Come Developer Reveals Switch Version Was Born Out Of A “Happy Mistake”

A Nintendo release wasn’t originally planned.

After months of ongoing rumours, Warhorse Studios yesterday confirmed it would in fact be bringing Kingdom Come: Deliverance to the Nintendo Switch.

While it’s still believed to have been leaked ahead of schedule, apparently that’s not how the story goes. In the official press release, the Switch version is described as being a “happy mistake”. A clerical error essentially showed there was interest in a Nintendo version, so the team decided to give it the greenlight.

Review: Mundaun – A Rich, Sepia-Toned First-Person Horror Show

There’s evil resident in this village.

Take our advice: if you ever receive a suspiciously detail-light missive informing you that a loved one has passed away and urging you not to return to your home village, trust us on this one – just let it lie as advised. Let them lie, we suppose, because no good has ever come from going to a village, as recent horror games (and, let’s face it, real life) are a testament towards. It’s quite understandable, then, that we met Mundaun’s opening correspondence — informing its protagonist of his grandfather’s death — with quite some scepticism, which turned out to be well-founded.

See, Mundaun is a first-person horror game that sees you investigating the aforementioned suspicious death, returning to the titular village in order to investigate, which is exactly what we said not to do!! Said investigation takes the form of exploring, finding items, solving puzzles and occasionally poking a pitchfork at a screeching humanoid bale of hay. The usual, then.

2B From NieR: Automata Is Coming To Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

Arriving next week.

If you’ve been crying out for NieR: Automata to come to the Switch or the YoRHa combat android 2B to come to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we’ve got the next best thing. Mediatonic has announced it’s bringing 2B to its party battle royale game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.

Last month, the game was actually delayed for the Switch to give the developer more time to add more features like cross-play. The aim is still to have the game out on this platform as soon as possible.

Review: Game Builder Garage – A Toolbox Of Terrifying Potential

Make your own damned games.

Game Builder Garage is a game where you make games yourself rather than letting trained developers do it for you. If that sounds like a lot of hard work then Game Builder Garage probably isn’t going to be your flavour of choice. But if that sounds like a lot of hard work that you’d actually like to have a pop at, the question is does it deliver enough to actually make it a worthwhile purchase?

The whole thing is split into two convenient parts, Interactive Lessons and Free Programming. The former takes you through the basics of how the game works through seven appropriately interactive lessons, hosted by Bob, the indeterminate speck. Now let’s not beat around the bush, game development deals with an incredible number of abstract concepts, including but not limited to the bane of every schoolchild: maths. For some these ideas will click almost instantly, but for others it’s a right old nuisance to wrap one’s head around, and so a game like this can easily live or die by its tutorials.

Super Mario Kart Hacker Restores Nintendo’s Official Track Editor

Code uncovered in recently leaked prototype.

A “hacker guy” known as ‘MrL314’ has successfully restored the track editor used by Nintendo to construct Super Mario Kart.

The original discovery stems from last year’s Nintendo leak which contained an early prototype of SMK from 1991. Here, he found references to a track editor in the code – revealing Super Mario Kart’s SFX-DOS functionality.
