13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim Switch Review

This week on the NXpress Nintendo PodcastCameron DaxonMarc KaliroffCampbell Gill, and Goomba Stomp writer James Cook review what may be the perfect Switch port–13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. Before getting to that, though, the hosts react to the long, drawn-out, excruciatingly painful death of E3. With the recent announcement that no in-person or virtual conference will be held this year, does this mean that E3 is finally gone forever? What will the industry look like without the annual summer extravaganza that was E3 in its glory days? The gang has thoughts!

Next up, James and Cameron take the spotlight to review the new Switch port of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim. One of 2020’s best cult classics, 13 Sentinels is a mind-bending experience that defies easy explanation–but that doesn’t keep James and Cameron from trying. Between its mech-based combat and extraordinarily in-depth narrative, there’s plenty to love in this meaty package–and best of all, it holds up fantastically on Switch. Marc and Cameron close the show with an indie spotlight on the beautiful but underwhelming narrative-driven indie A Memoir Blue, a slender package that may leave players wanting more.
