ESRB rates Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee HD for Switch

Earlier it was reported that retailer publisher Microids were teaming up with Oddworld Inhabitants (the creators of the Oddworld franchise) and would be bringing three Oddworld games that would be coming to Switch and would do so at retail by them. The first of which was right away revealed to be Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD, releasing at retail on Switch this spring, and the game was just recently released on the eShop back on January 23rd, 2020.

The reviews section now has a NISA-dedicated list!

It’s no secret that a big chunk of my reviews on here are by NISA. In fact, in 2018, I reviewed EVERY single game they released on Switch. So, I decided to make a list in the reviews section showing only NISA games. I actually left the main list untouched, so NISA’s games will be on that page twice, but it’s just to show the FULL list and how expansive it is.

Let me know if this makes things any easier, or if you have any suggestions, leave me a comment below! 🙂

Here’s my first review of the new year. This is the latest in the WRC (World Rally Championship) series and the second on a Nintendo platform (at least in recent gens?), with the first being a WRC title on 3DS. The 3DS game was a… really iffy game by Firebrand Games (a dev famous for their DS racing games) that likely didn’t get the time or money it needed to be what it could’ve been. There was also a WRC-like game called V-Rally 4 on Switch early last year, also by Bigben and Kylotonn which fared alright but looking at Metacritic, it wasn’t super well rated on any system. WRC 8 on the other hand was highly rated on the other platforms… but not so on Switch. This is my first rally game so I’ll be looking at it with fresh eyes. How does it fare? Let’s find out!
