Robert’s Pick: I’ve been playing Pokémon for close to two decades now and my passion for pocket monsters is still running strong so Ultra Sun or Moon will be an obligatory pickup to pass the time until a Switch iteration. Speaking of Switch, RIVE: Ultimate Edition has been getting a solid amount of playtime, with the gratifyingly tough shooter helping to reduce the stress caused by train delays. Previously released on PC, the Switch port is consummate (save for a tiny font), with a solid sixty frame-per-second delivery and enough particle effects to dazzle jaded retinas.

  1. Stay away from $tar War$ Battlefront II, yo.

  2. Not picking Salamander is a reason to get your retro cred revoked. 😉

  3. Playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on the go is cool. but I don’t think I can justify paying $60 to do it.

  4. I see they’re bringing out out new PSVR games while the old ones are getting clearanced. I know they’re trying to say that the system has been a success, but when only 1 out of 50 people who own a PS4 have bought the system, I don’t know if you can really call it that.

    I’m still waiting for a larger price drop.

  5. Will Adam come back to review Karnov’s Revenge?

  6. RiME and RIVE are a little too close in title to be released in the same week. I can see the one letter difference causing confusion.
