Panzer Dragoon Remake Nintendo Switch Review

A Sega Saturn classic returns 🐲

By Paul Hunter

Some series have completely disappeared from the gaming landscape, but not necessarily from the hearts of players. Good examples would be Banjo-Kazooie, Sly Cooper and Ape Escape. Then there's Panzer Dragoon, another beloved franchise we haven't seen since Orta released in 2003. The series captured gamers attention when it helped launch the Sega Saturn in 1995, yet despite the praise would later fade away like so many great ones do. That is, until this year when seemingly out of nowhere a remake by MegaPixel Studio launched on Nintendo Switch.

To The Moon Nintendo Switch Review

I'm not crying, you're crying 😭

By Paul Hunter

I'm sure we all have that one game our friends have been bugging us to play for years. For me, it's To The Moon, the indie darling from producer Kan Gao and his studio, Freebird Games. I've heard time and again it has a wonderful, emotional story that I simply must experience, and it's Canadian made so even more reason to play it right?
