Nintendo is Getting In On The Kitty Cat Video Game Scene

I still need to play Stray. A video game where you’re an adorable cat wandering through a city? That just seems like fun! Plus I spent all that money on a Playstation 5. But before I even get to that, how about this new game from Nintendo: Little Kitty, Big City.

Seems like Nintendo took the idea of Stray and its popularity and turned it into a sandbox game. Seems like a winning strategy to me! And this seems like a really cool game to me. It’s adorable, it’s open, it’s Nintendo; I spent all that money on the Switch, after all. Might as well try Little Kitty, Big City. It comes out…next year! Oh, I’ll probably get to Stray before that.


Tears of the Kingdom is a Day One Buy For Me

I am going to buy Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on the day it comes out. I own a Nintendo Switch, the first Nintendo console I’ve ever owned — not counting the handhelds. I very much enjoyed Breath of the Wild, the first ever Zelda game I really played. And I’ve even taken the week after May 12 off from work so that I’ll have plenty of time to play Tears of the Kingdom.

Mostly I wanted to take a vacation in the spring, and the timing just worked out for Tears of the Kingdom.

The game looks great. Some people might complain that it’s just a Breath of the Wild expansion pack, but I do not care. Breath of the Wild was an amazing game with an amazing game world and amazing game mechanics. If they want to just expand upon that with all new adventures and stuff to do, that’s perfectly fine with me. I am not someone constantly chasing new graphical improvements. Give me more of the same, with some tweaks and upgrades and bonus stuff, and I’ll be a happy camper. It’s like the Miles Morales sequel to the PS4 Spider-Man game. Same Manhattan, same Spidey awesomeness, but just different enough to be new and cool.

So I am fully on board for having a week off from work to play through Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, coming May 12.


Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Should Be Sweet

Good news, everybody! I own a Nintendo Switch now, so when Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is released in a couple months, I’ll be able to play it immediately! I very much enjoyed Breath of the Wild, and I’m glad to be on board for the sequel right away. Looks like they just took the first game and expanded it in a lot of great ways.

There’s driving a cool car, there’s falling through the air, there’s some underground stuff; maybe we’ll get to play as Zelda? I’m fully on board with all of this! A lot of people are raising a fuss online that this game is going to cost $70 as opposed to the usual $60…but I’ve made my piece with this. I’m an adult with a full time job and a comfortable life, I can afford an extra $10 for my video games. And yeah, I’m bragging. Wanna fight about it?

Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom comes out on May 12.


6 Reasons Why I Should Buy a Nintendo Switch During Quarantine

These are troubling times. We are, all of us, living in interesting times as a deadly virus sweeps across the globe. I’ve been working from home for 2 1/2 weeks now with no sign of life going back to normal. I might not even have my job at the end of this — if there is an end of this. The world may never be the same ever again due to the coronavirus.

So I’m here to explain to you all why I should go out and buy a Nintendo Switch.

Switch N List 01

Look, I know what you’re going to say. But I’ve given this a lot of thought and I have, like, six really good reasons why I should load up and order a brand, spanking new Nintendo Switch video game console. And a couple games. Granted, as I’m writing this, it’s currently sold out, but it wasn’t sold out a couple days ago, which means it’ll be in stock again someday. And I should buy one. Yep. For the full $300, plus a couple games. Trust me on this.

In fact, join me after the jump for all the very good, well-thought-out reasons why I should buy a Nintendo Switch while self-isolating at home.

Behold, Our New Pokemon Starters!

The new starters for Pokemon Sun and Moon were revealed today, and I definitely think I’m going with the kitty cat.

That’s Rowlett the grass type, Litten the fire type and Popplio the water type. The cat looks cool as heck, so I think I’m definitely down for the Litten this go around. But we’ll see how their evolutions play out. If that seal/clown thing gets really cool by the end, I might have to switch. The owl does nothing for me.

You can find more information about them at the official website.

There’s an introductory video too, and we get to see the new iconic Legendary pokemon. Sun gets a lion and Moon gets a bat.

Even though bats are my favorite animal, I can’t quite decide which I like better! That lion would go well with my new Litten…

Either way, I’m just grateful that I won’t need to buy a new handheld console to play this game. Seriously, twice now in my life I have bought a brand new Nintendo DS just to play the new Pokemon game. That is not responsible adulting. The game comes out on Nov. 18.

What do you henchies think? Got a favorite choice already? Let me know in the comments!
