Townscaper is a title full of potential that will sadly never get realized. It sums itself up better than I can, as “…an experimental passion project. More of a toy than a game.” In that sense, it doesn’t fall short of its modest aims. However, it’s an experiment not seen through to completion. And one the developer admits he has no plans of updating. So you’ll grow tired of Townscaper much sooner than expected, waiting for updates that will seemingly never arrive.
As much as I love my Switch, there’s no denying that the Nintendo eShop on the Switch console is…let’s go with less than ideal. The eShop on Switch simply doesn’t do the system’s extensive library of mostly fantastic releases justice. You could argue that it’s because Nintendo doesn’t have as much experience with digital marketplaces as its peers, I suppose. However, I’d argue that this makes no difference, since the company dabbled in the concept throughout the 3DS, Wii, and Wii-U eras.
The Castlevania Advance Collection popped up on the ESRB listings today, all but confirming that the long-rumored collection will be announced soon.

The fall has barely begun, but that didn't stop Nintendo from streaming a Nintendo Direct to chart a course for what's to come in the remainder of the year and into 2022. Though the stream was short on news about first party games in the coming future, there were certainly some hotly awaited reveals as well as some surprise announcements... other than the fact that Chris Pratt will voice Mario in Illumination's Super Mario Bros. animated movie, obviously.

The first announcement at today’s Nintendo Direct was a “massive expansion” for Monster Hunter Rise. The latest Monster Hunter game was released earlier this year for the Nintendo Switch. Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak will be releasing in summer 2022 and is described as a “massive expansion” that will include new locales, monsters, hunts, and quest ranks. There’s no word on pricing for the expansion yet, but if other Nintendo Switch expansions are anything to go by, we could be expecting something in the $20 range. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild released two expansions under one expansion pass back in 2017. The Breath of the Wild expansion pack was released in two stages. The first came out in June 2017, with the second part of the expansion pass releasing in December 2017. Although, if the description in the Nintendo Direct indicates anything, this Monster Hunter expansion should be considerably bigger than the ones released for Breath of the Wild.

In a recent chat with a friend, we somehow strayed onto the topic of our 'favourite consoles'.

My...
