Issue 90 — July 22, 2018
Breath of the Wild in MK8

Hey, issue 90 of Switch Weekly here, with the Nintendo stuff you need to know.

Not much commentary from me this week (been busy with DIY projects around the house), but I'll share what I've been playing:

I've just put the finishing touches on my Bomb Chicken review (which you can read here). It's a solid little platformer — I had fun with it, and although simple, I was particulary impressed with just how much its main mechanic offers. Other than that I've just started on Pool Panic, an oddball take on pool - it's out now in the U.S and lands in Europe tomorrow.

Oh, and how about a blast from the past before I go — here's me playing Pokemon Stadium on the N64 in the early 2000s. Please excuse the hat.

That's all from me,
Thanks, Chris.
