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.

Metal Slug X is an example of what game companies had to do before online patches were a thing. When going over Metal Slug 2, which you can read about here, I found the game to be a chuggy sluggy mess, grinding to a halt whenever the player dared to breathe. X is the marker pen crossing out such issues, and adding zombie dogs as it does so. I guess sometimes you have to give just a little bit more when saying sorry.  Continue reading
