If you are a fan of the fire emblem series, this is a buy. 

It will be out 1-20-2023

A divine edition with collectible items will be with it. Fire Emblem is a franchise game so what that means is, fans will be favored and non fans for whatever reason, take it or leave it.


It Takes Two - electronic arts usa, 2 players required

Help two parents return to normal, can be played in handheld mode exclusively, I think. They say you can play it in the complete switch.

Creepy game, scary game, for you frighteners:)  Seem to be a maid outfit:)

Indie or smaller budget games- my preferred zone

I am not a fan of the cartoon so...

3-d platformer. Looks fun though if you are into the series. Voiced by the original actors from the show

Fitness boxing fist of the north star from Imagineer

Wow! the original screenshot I was thinking. Oh wow! first of the north star, but this is  a fitness game:)  I remember a relative had the first fist of the north star video game on his nintendo. It was interesting. 

You can take on bosses, they look like the characters from the anime. But it is for fitness, you need to move and work out as you play.

March 2023


Oddballers from UBisoft

Many minigames, six players can play simultaneously, can specify your playing character. Meant to be fun. These games are best if you have a bunch of people you know play the switch, can get online with it, and then you can organize play times.

Launches Early next year


Tunic by Finji

A puzzle adventure game. A fox washed up on a shore, needs to complete a manual and to do that you have to go through the island. Looks pretty.

September 27th preorders are available now


Front Mission 1: Remake + Front Mission 2: remake both by Forever entertainment

Front mission is a strategy game, turn base, you ride a mecha, they call wanzers, that you can advance. Front Mission 2 was not released outside japan. I love strategy games so I may get this. IT all depends on how busy I am. 

Front mission 1 in November 2022 Front Mission 2 in 2023 Front Mission 3 is coming after Front Mission 2


Story of Seasons: a wonderful life from Xseed games

Originally it came out 20 years ago. This is a daily life routine game. Care for animals, raise up a farm, like Stardew Valley, but better colorizations or scope. You can have a child and raise it and characters will grow old. 

Summer 2023


Splatoon Injection


First post launch splatfest for splatoon 3.

09/23 friday 5pm Pacific time to 09/25 sun 5pm Pacific time

  • Gear 
  • Grub

Splatoon was injected here. This is a larger project that the smaller games, but Splatoon was started as an experimental. Like PRofessor Layton, it was contingent on success so it was an inhouse indie project so to speak. 

Enjoy splatters:) 

They end with more updates for splatoon 3

Factorio from WUbe Software ltd

Management simulation game. This kind of game is what I mean by a game's scale is very tiny. It looks interesting, but your character is really small. At least by the images given.

I love the concept though. More original than the usual. Crashed ship, you have to reconstruct it on an alien world. Like Pikmin meets Astroneer.

Love the look of the construction lines. You have enemies you will need to construct. 

OCtober 28th 2022


Ib from playism 

A young girl named Ib in an art gallery gets sucked into a scary surreal world through a painting, you have to get her back. A puzzle horror game with nice visual graphics so you can actually have puzzles. Puzzles can't be difficult to see, that is why horror games that try to look like a movie with puzzles can be too difficult. Like the concept.

Dandori- strategically deploying commanding the pikmin!!

I can't play Pikmin on the phone but I am very happy. As an engineer I think Pikmin is one of the finest games ever made. Non engineers don't comprehend the challenge of pikmin. I have enjoyed Pikmin , Pikmin 2, Pikmin 3, Hey Pikmin, and will enjoy pikmin bloom if I can. Pikmin 4 is a keeper!

The Legend of Zelda, Tears of the Kingdom 





Saw a lot of Square enix and in house Nintendo. Though I did enjoy some of the smaller development firms projects


Of the games I saw , the following interest me in a sale. 

  • Tunic- looks beautiful
  • FaeFarm- this is the first game in a long time that looks like it mirrors for me one of the most fun games ever, and that is fantasy life. When I look at this game, it makes me think of fantasy life had a baby with animal crossing and stardew valley. The time changing and scope is very stardew valley-ish. The visualization, which is important in these games, is like animal crossing. You can see everything. some times in these games, its too tiny or too large. Or the scale is not right. But, you can actually battle in here and that is Fantasy life. I think fantasy life was underrated for how people could come in and play and help another person playing the game. 
  • Factorio- this is an individual game, I wish it was a multiplayer, I swear this concept with a multiplayer facet could be huge. But I like it. It's not for everyone, it is niche. But I like astroneeer, I like pikmin so if you like those then you will like this, and I haven't even played it. 
  • PIKMIN 4 Mandatory
  • Sifu- the mechanics I like. I am tired of immortal fighter games. I want fighter games where the mechanics are more honest, not unfun, not real, but honests. Why can't I get older if I lose. I like the concept.
  • Endless Dungeon- like gauntlet ,a loose maybe
  • Lego Bricktales- looks fun, I love my build a world games




The following games I want to say why not.

  • Oddballer- if i can get members of black games elite to do this game, I will be in, cause it looks fun:) and we can go as a team on others teams. but it is contingent on the group
  • Front Missions- I love strategy but I will not deny, there is a particular strategy game that I like a lot and until that next edition is available on switch while I like certain strategy games a lot, I will pause.
  • Story of Season- look at faefarm above
