Detective Pikachu Amiibo

Rocket League

Rocket League 
Release Date: 26th January 2018 (Nintendo Switch Physical Release)
Psyonix 

Football is often referred to as the beautiful game, and I can see what people mean when they call it so. There is nothing more moving than seeing a team work in harmony, minds in total sync, as they pass and shoot for the opponent’s goal. When a goal happens with such precision between players, well, it can reduce a grown man to tears, that’s what they say, that’s what I see. And hearing those engines roar, witnessing paint jobs grind up against one another, and smelling the burning rubber, yes, that’s the beautiful game right there. That’s Rocket League football, indeed.

ACA NeoGeo: World Heroes 2

ACA NeoGeo: World Heroes 2
Release Date: 25th January 2018 (UK Nintendo Switch Release)
NeoGeo
Hamster Corporation

It’s easy to drown on the NeoGeo. Fighting games are stacked on every corner, they pile up high, till you can no longer see the sky. The King of Fighters, Art of Fighting, Samurai Shodown, Fatal Fury, Waku Waku 7,Sengoku, World Heroes, and this is just a surface scratch. It’s easier just to break on through the lot with a Tiger Uppercut, and head to well-worn roads with the likes of Street Fighter II or Mortal Kombat, but climbing those suffocating walls often leads to new horizons. World Heroes 2 isn’t one of them, but it tries, oh, it tries.

So here we are, five classics re-released in 2017 to make us look backwards, never forwards. If it wasn’t for the white bomber, this might as well have been a top five ACA Neo Geo list. Keep pumping them out, Hamster Corporation, keep putting me into the 90’s!

Channel Gaming’s 2017 List Of Shiny New Games That Were Kind Of Fun To Play

Despite a constant flow of unboxings and plastic, not a lot of games end up finished here at Channel Gaming, at least not any new ones, anyway. So rather than a best of 2017, here we have five games which were kind of fun to play. I kind of like this idea, don’t you? And also, these five games are all kind of Nintendo releases… kind of.

Nintendo Switch Play Stand

There was once a real useful piece of plastic available for the Nintendo 3DS. For those who purchased Kid Icarus Uprising, a stand was included so you could use your hands for better things than holding the game system, such as offering a hands free way to watch YouTube on your phone. Or playing Candy Crush for hours on those hefty tablets. Or maybe even for your actual 3DS to tackle Kid Icarus’s unorthodox control scheme. Yes, maybe even that.  Continue reading
