Splatoon is widely known for its songs covering a wide range of genres. What’s more impressive is that every song is played by an actual in-game band, like the most famous duo Squid Sisters. But if you’ve ever thought “oh, how I wish there was a website where I could easily read all the information about the Splatoon bands and even listen to their songs,” well, look no further! As Nintendo has updated their Splatoon website with a music section where you can see bands’ description, their album covers, a spotlight and even get a sample of many of the songs they play!

If you’d like to explore the site for yourself, you can go here. Note that not all the songs are available yet, but it’s possible that they can add them in the future.

It’s always fun seeing what fans can create based on their favorite franchises. Such is the case of Prime: Metroid Reimagined, a tribute album celebrating the 20th anniversary of Metroid Prime. This project promises six artfully reimagined locations with compelling acoustic performances and animated diorama videos created by an international team of video game musicians, artists, and designers.

If you’d like to listen to these remixes, the YouTube video above will take you to the entire playlist, but the official site has links for other platforms for you to listen to them like Spotify, Amazon Music, and more.

If you enjoy these tracks, make sure you let the creators know as you can definitely tell there was a lot of passion and love behind the project!


Sonic Frontiers is the latest victim of review bombing

Sonic voice: that's NO good!

Sonic Frontiers is the latest entry in the Sonic franchise and, overall, the game has seen a lot of praise from fans and the media, at least when we compare it to previous projects like Sonic Forces.

However, not everyone will share the same opinion, like in the case of YouTube personality Videogamedunkey.

Dunkey is known for his video reviews with a focus on comedy and entertainment, though he is not shy when it comes to voicing his real opinion on the games he plays. Dunkey was not a fan of Sonic Frontiers and while that’s fine as it’s his opinion, some people saw that as an attack to their favorite franchise.

Although the game was getting favorable reviews on Metacritic, we’ve been seeing a lot of negative ones being left by people who are seemingly Dunkey’s fans. The Youtuber mentions however that these people are most likely Sonic fans themselves, leaving these reviews in order to give a bad name to his fanbase.

While there’s no way to check who is actually writing these, it’s not hard to squint at them, given the usernames on the site.

Luckily, these reviews have not been enough to lower the score of the game substantially, and it still sits at a comfortable 80 score, for the PC version and at a 72 score for the Switch. It’s worth noting that the score for the Switch version tends to be lower because of performance issues.

Review bombs are not good, and it seems counterproductive to have one for a game that, in general, was doing pretty well, but now has to suffer due to differences in opinions. But what do you think? Do you think Sonic Frontiers deserved a lower score? a higher one? Are you OK with it as it stands? Let us know!


It’s not rare for Sonic games to get a shaky welcome whenever a new one comes out. Some people enjoy them, while others prefer to voice their opinions. Sonic Frontiers seems to be different however, as it’s getting a lot of praise from both the media and fans, refreshing to see!

If you’d like to see what people are saying or need to get convinced, don’t miss out the newly released accolades trailer above, with comments even calling the game “the best 3D Sonic game in years.”

Starsand is a new survival game developed by Tunnel Vision Studio and published by Toplitz Productions. In this game, you will explore a mysterious desert while you, hunt, craft, and build but most importantly, while trying to survive! If you’d like to know more about the game, we have the trailer for you above and the game’s description below.

Starsand is out now on the eShop for US$20 and you can get it here.

Your day started as planned. Motivated and full of ambition you started the run of your life, in the middle of the desert, surrounded by like-minded people. The months of hard training should finally bear fruit. Suddenly, you were caught in a monstrous sandstorm and now you find yourself alone in an inhospitable, hot environment. Deserted and merciless, an ocean of sand stretches to the horizon.

You feel the scorching heat on your skin, sand blowing right at your face, far and wide only vast desert … but wait, what is that? Something is moving in the far distance. What happened?

Your first thought: Survival.

Your second thought: Rescue will surely come.

The bitter realization: No one will come, you are completely on your own.

The big question: Where are you and why are there two moons in the night sky?

Open world

Starsand is a desert survival game that will take you to an open world that looks like Earth but feels much different. Dangers, mysteries and puzzles await you! Find out what exactly happened, where you are and what connects you to the history of an extinct civilization. Will you manage to survive in the inhospitable environment, find answers and find your way back to your old life?

Explore an arcane desert

Find shade, find water, find life. Use your energy wisely, avoid too much effort in the heat, keep warm in the coldest nights. You must keep your wits to survive.

Hunt, craft, build

Hunt for food, make weapons, build a shelter. Secure your shelter - the dunes are teeming with scary creatures.

Defend your base

In this desert you are both a hunter and prey. Insect-like predators come out of their dark nests, always looking for food. Protect yourself with fire, blow up enemies with explosive coconut grenades, secure your base and do whatever it takes to survive.

Tame the environment

Find your way in the vast and lonely desert, orient yourself in sandstorms and mark your path. Thirst and heat become an invincible enemy during the day - cold endangers you during the night. Learn to live with adversity, see the beauty that the world holds, and learn from the animals and nature!

Features

  • Large open game world in an exciting desert setting with an area of over 64 km².
  • The lovingly designed world, far away from civilization, holds many impressive monuments, artefacts, and creatures of the past, as well as modern times.
  • Survival action par excellence! Weather and desert capers as well as terrestrial and extra-terrestrial enemies awaken the pure survival instinct!
  • Gather, build, secure - for protection against heat, cold and the unknown enemy.
  • Dynamic weather and day/night changes demand good planning, wise action, and a large portion of courage, especially in the desert.
  • A mystical, thrilling story and the solving of numerous puzzles answer many open questions during the exciting journey into the unknown.

Nintendo and Niantic are celebrating Pikmin Bloom’s first anniversary with a variety of special events (which you can see in more detail here). One of them is a crossover with Pikmin 3 Deluxe that runs from November 15 (Tue) to December 9 (Fri) and, while we don’t know what exactly it is about or what’s included, we now have access to the event’s reward based on the console game:

That’s right! It’s a backpack for your Mii based on the Onions from Pikmin 3!

If you’d like to get it yourself, you have to own a copy of Pikmin 3 Deluxe and have save data attached to your Nintendo Account. If you have it, log into your MyNintendo account, go to Menu, then Point Summary, then Point History, and find a box that says “Reward redeemed for Pikmin 3 Onion Style Backpack Reward Code”.

image

After this, click on “Review your download code”, which then you’ll have to enter directly on the website. Finally, you’ll be able to get your shiny new Onion backpack.

It’s worth noting that we don’t know if this will be the only reward available throughout the event, so keep your eyes peeled for Tuesday, the official date for the information about the event to be revealed.

Thanks to creative_sushi on Twitter for posting about it!

Days from launching on the Nintendo Switch, Super Lone Survivor’s sole developer Jasper Bryne announced that the game’s release would be delayed due to low sales on Steam along with hate mail that he’s received.

The reason for this is likely due to the top Steam review claiming that the game, being an enhanced port of the original Lone Survivor, was nothing but a simple port with nothing new added and that people should not buy it, even though the game features a new aspect ratio, art, music, new pieces to the story, and more.

While Jasper recognizes that the original reviewer maybe didn’t mean any harm, he also mentions that the game has had almost no sales since it came out due to the review.

All of these reasons caused the delay on the release for the Switch and it’s unclear if the game will come out anytime soon or at all at this point.

I highly recommend that you watch the trailer for Super Lone Survivor below and that you support Jasper in any way you can, even a comment goes a long way!
