Nintendo is 100% taking a retro route with the Nintendo Switch with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System Online addition to the Nintendo Online service. My uncle owned a SNES and it was a system that me and my brother would sneak out of his room to get some game time, so I felt this was the perfect opportunity to go […]
Metroidvanias have been mixed with multiple genres… but who would’ve thought that it would be mixed with the pinpoint accuracy of pinball? Now to start off, I’ve not got much experience with Pinball, in fact, the only memory I have of a Pinball machine was a nightmare on elm street one during a family holiday in Turkey.
