Unruly Heroes: Great Co-op Game

Playing video games is one of my favorite things to do. One thing I love even more? Being able to play with my husband. That’s why we’re always looking for good couch co-op or multiplayer games that we can enjoy.

Recently, Juan and I decided to revive our Press Pause youtube channel and are now creating content based on games and things we can do together. Our latest video covers Unruly Heroes, an action adventure game that can be played with up to four people. It is inspired by the Chinese legend: “A Journey to the West”.

While playing it, I was enamored by the beautiful environment and range of colors (a lot of yellow, red and green tones). It reminds you of titles like Trine and Rayman Origins. Gameplay felt very fluid and the variety between the characters abilities were great. We used controllers when playing and movement felt great while using them. The story/campaign is local only, while the PVP mode has both local and online. We still haven’t tried the PVP mode but I hope we’ll be able to very soon!

We made a video playing the first level of the game, check it out if you can.

Question Time:

What are some of your favorite video games that have co-op and/or multiplayer?

Nintendo Switch Light Up Dock Shield

The Nintendo Switch turned one year old yesterday, and it’s one of Nintendo’s most popular platforms. It has tripled in sales compared to their last console, the Nintendo Wii U.

We’ve had the Switch since it came out, and it’s one of the best purchases we’ve made. Their selection of games have a great variety of video game genres. If you’re in the market for a Switch, I recommend The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Those titles are a given and you’ll see them recommended everywhere. For “lesser” known titles, I recommend Dragon Quest Builders (think Minecraft with a story) and Ittle Dew 2+ (inspired by classic The Legend of Zelda titles).

Back in November, I was browsing for Nintendo Switch accessories. I found the Nintendo Switch Light Up Dock Shield by PDP. I loved how it looked, but it was sold out everywhere. We visited New York City in December and went to a few GameStop/ThinkGeek stores and none of them had it in stock. After a month or so, it was back in stock on Amazon so I immediately bought it.

This light up dock shield goes on top of your Nintendo Switch dock shield and connects via USB. It includes two acrylic framing panels: one for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (pictured above) and one for Super Mario Odyssey. You have 17 different colors and/or light up effects to choose from, including a Flash Mode, Strobe Mode, Fade Mode, and Smooth Mode.

If you want a nice-looking accessory for your Nintendo Switch, I definitely recommend the Nintendo Switch Light Up Dock Shield. I would love for PDP to release more acrylic framing panels for it as more games come out. I’m looking forward to it, that way we can swap them out every now and then.

Question Time:

Do you have a Nintendo Switch? Do you have any accessories for it? What’s your favorite?
