There was something truly special about the platformers released during the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Banjo-Kazooie, Jak and Daxter, and Sly Cooper were just a few series that were absolutely spectacular, but which, unfortunately, didn’t really survive beyond that golden age of platforming goodness. Considering my love for these types of games, a friend had recommended I play Ty the Tasmanian Tiger a while back, another platforming franchise from that same time period. Admittedly, I didn’t take his advice until fairly recently when I realized that the first game had an HD remaster available on modern consoles.Continue reading Ty the Tasmanian Tiger: Another Platformer from a Bygone Era
A game which has crossed my path a lot lately is an intriguing little game called Unravel. In this puzzle platformer, you play as a little yarn creature called…ahem, Yarny. It looked promising, but at the same time, I was a bit reluctant. I think I was worried Yarny (based on the name, no doubt) would be an annoying, overly cutesy little bugger. Maybe an odd reason for avoiding a game, but alas, I kept passing over it until I realized that Unravel had a free demo. Well, it would seem the time for excuses was over.Continue reading Unravel: Demo Review
Join us as we play through the HD remaster of Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, an old-school platformer and collectathon from 2002 where Ty must collect the five talismans, defeat Boss Cass, and save his family from The Dreaming.
There seems to be a plethora of games out there where you play as an animal (usually a fox, but sometimes a wolf) exploring forests and other natural environments. Seriously, it should be a genre all its own. Fe, The First Tree, Spirit of the North, and Lost Ember are all examples of this, and while I played the first two, I skipped on the latter two because I don’t need more of the same general game. But I did give one more similar game a chance because it was on sale for roughly $2 or $3, Seasons After Fall.Continue reading Seasons After Fall is Beautiful, Yet Boring
Despite my stubborn love of physical games over digital, I have started to amass a small collection of digital games on the Switch (“amass” meaning about five games, which accounts for about 50% of my entire Switch collection, so…it’s all relative, I suppose). This all started when I was perusing the Switch eShop out of curiosity and saw a whole bunch of games on sale for $10 or less. The very first game that caught my eye was Fe, an indie game that was being sold for $5! With a price tag like that, how could I possibly pass it up? Fe was, what I’d like to call, an experimental game. I bought it out of curiosity and because I wanted something unique to add to our YouTube channel. I have most certainly accomplished that goal, but is it an actually good game? And furthermore, would I recommend buying it for its full price of $20? Continue reading Singing with Animals in Fe
