Happy New Year from Woodgrain Wonderland!

First of all, apologies for my recent lack of posting activity. As you might imagine, the holiday season has been busy — busy playing video games, that is. My nephew got a Nintendo Switch for Christmas and I have to say it’s quite an impressive unit. I’m not sure if I care for the controls in undocked mode (a little small for my tastes) but otherwise we’ve been having a lot of fun playing Mario Kart 8 and a terrific 8-bit throwback called Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope

Anyway, hope you’re having a good New Years so far and I promise I’ll get back to regular posting shortly. Cheers!

  1. There are some great modern retro-style titles on Switch. If you haven’t tried them already, I recommend giving Cave Story+ and Blaster Master Zero a go — both games with a charming NES/Famicom-style aesthetic, but somewhat modernised gameplay and structure.

    Cave Story in particular is old-school HARD, too, particularly if you go for its true ending. You have been warned! 🙂

  2. Thanks Pete — I’ll try to check those out the next time I get near a Switch. Sorry it took me so long to approve your comment — most of the time WordPress auto-approves comments but sometimes it doesn’t. Cheers.
