Octopath Traveler could be the Square Enix RPG I’ve been waiting for

Octopath Traveler could be the Square Enix RPG I’ve been waiting for

A few months before the Nintendo Switch launched, Square Enix started advertising a beautiful looking game it called Project Octopath Traveler. It's safe to assume that many were reminded of Square's 16-bit RPGs from the 1990s, such as Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI, based on Octopath Traveler's looks alone. Fast forward to today and Octopath Traveler is nearly here, dropping the "Project" from its name and promising a JRPG experience quite different from the games we remember from those simpler times.

Rocket League 2: Don’t get your hopes up

It isn't exactly a secret that Rocket League is one of the biggest games around. Three years out from its 2015 release and the game still regularly ranks among the top 10 most-played games on Steam, while it's found success on many other platforms in the time since then. It would naturally follow that developer Psyonix would look to make lightning strike twice by releasing a sequel, right?

Nintendo Switch games still have some 2018 surprises in store

If you're a Super Smash Bros fan, then Nintendo's E3 2018 presentation was likely super exciting. Aside from that major focus on Super Smash Bros Ultimate, though, it was fairly light on big announcements.

Nintendo Switch cardboard edition available only in Labo contest

The Nintendo Switch was already an innovative gaming device but Nintendo definitely stepped up the game, literally and figuratively, with its Labo platform. Perhaps inspired a bit by Google, Labo uses mostly cardboard-based kits that expands the things the console can do. To encourage even more creativity, Nintendo is holding a Creators Contest whose grand prize may be enough to make anyone try their luck at creating a Labo musical instrument or game.

Sushi Striker is a delightful game that launched at an awful time

The Nintendo Switch has a big six months ahead of it, and that period was kicked off by the release of Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido earlier in the month. Co-developed by Nintendo EPD and indieszero, Sushi Striker definitely isn't the first-party fare we've come to expect from Nintendo over the years, but that didn't stop it from turning some heads when it was revealed back at E3 2017. Sushi Striker is every bit as good as those pre-launch trailers suggested it would be, but the problem is that it launched at a really bad time, especially considering that it's the first game in a new franchise.

Nintendo Switch pirates beware: you could be banned for life

The Nintendo Switch is one of the most innovative gaming consoles to launch of late but, like any gaming device, it isn’t immune to one of the entertainment industry’s biggest problem: piracy. Many companies have tried different methods of fighting or discouraging piracy, often at the expense of inconveniencing legit users. Nintendo, however, may have come up with a nearly foolproof method that would ban such pirates from playing games online or even ban them from Nintendo Network for good.
