SkylanderNutts Presents Slay the Spire

SkylanderNutts Presents Slay the SpireSlay the Spire is a new card combat game which has finally come to Xbox and Xbox Game Pass. That means it’s a perfect game for me to show the boys. I’m a big fan of card games, card combat games, and roguelikes, and this game brings all of those together. This game has been very popular on Steam and the Nintendo Switch but will it find an audience on the Xbox? I like it, but I want to see if the boys like it or find it too complicating or boring.

Slay the Spire is developed by MegaCrit and published by Humble Bundle. It came out in early access in November of 2017 but finally was released in Jan 2019 on the PC. It later came to the PS4 in May, Switch in June, and finally Xbox in August. We are playing it on the Xbox through Xbox Game Pass.

SkylanderNutts Presents Battle Chef Brigade

SkylanderNutts Presents Battle Chef BrigadeAnime, RPG elements, cooking, match 3, and platforming action battles are what makes Battle Chef Brigade a very interesting and addicting game. It came out in late 2017 but we are just now taking the time to check out this unusual game and it has put its hooks in me. I’m impressed by the story and the variety of ways they alter and make a match 3 game feel more strategic than ever before. I decided to show my cooking channel loving kids this game to see if they also enjoy the unique mixture of genres. Check it out and let us know what you think of Battle Chef Brigade!

Battle Chef Brigade is developed by Trinket Studios and published by Adult Swim Games. We are playing the game on the PS4, but it is also available on the PC and Switch. If you are a Microsoft Game Pass Ultimate subscriber you can even download the game for free at the moment for the PC.

SkylanderNutts Presents The Turing Test

SkylanderNutts Presents The Turing TestI’ve been wanting to play The Turing Test for a while, but never got around to it. Now with it being free on Game Pass I finally jumped in. For those that maybe don’t know, it’s a story based first-person puzzle game that reminded me very much of the old game Portal. I liked it so much I wanted to show the boys to see if they could figure out the puzzles. So today Conner plays the first set of levels in the game with some help from his brother. Watch to see how he and Lias work out the puzzles!

The Turing Test is made by Bulkhead Interactive and is published by Square Enix. We are playing the game on the Xbox thanks to Game Pass but the game is also available on the PS4 and PC.

SkylanderNutts Presents Next Up Hero

SkylanderNutts Presents Next Up HeroWith Lias out on assignment, I take the time to show Conner another cool couch co-op game that I think he’d like. Today we explore Next Up Hero. It’s an action game that has light RPG and Rouge-Like elements. Each “hero” has its own abilities and attacks which you can improve as you play different “ventures”. There is a light story but the draw here is the ability to create your own “ventures”. Conner very much likes to create his own levels and games so I try to show him games where you can do that. We don’t get to a high enough level to show that part off, but this early look will give him and others an idea if this is the kind of game you want to play and make levels for. Check it out!

Next Up Hero is made by Digital Continue and published by Aspyr. We’re playing the game on the Xbox thanks to Xbox Game Pass, but the game can also be found on the PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

SkylanderNutts Presents Hollow Knight

SkylanderNutts Presents Hollow KnightToday I present to the boys another game I think they’d like. This is the critically acclaimed 2D action-platformer called Hollow Knight. It started out on the PC in 2017 but then came to the Xbox and PS4 late last year. Now as they are gearing up to release their sequel Hollow Knight: Silksong, I wanted to try out the highly rated original game. Also, it was free with our GamePass subscription, so why not?! Check it out and see what the boys and I think about this game!

Hollow Knight is developed by Team Cherry and is available on the PC, Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.

SkylanderNutts Presents Riverbond

Watch as I show the boys this new co-op action voxel game and see what we think!

SkylanderNutts Presents Minion Masters: Forced to Duel

SkylanderNutts Presents Minion Masters: Forced to DuelToday I show the boys a new free to play battle game called Minion Masters Forced to Duel. It uses many of the same free to play structures that we are used to, such as having a battle pass, daily challenges, and many different modes to play. There are a lot of systems at play so there is a lot to go over, but the boys seem very interested and ask a lot of good questions.

Give it a watch and let us know what you think of this game? Have you played it? Does it seem cool? Do you have any questions after watching this video? We have just barely begun to learn what this game has to offer, but so far I’m quite impressed with it. We’ll see if we stick with it for more than a season or not!

We’re playing this on the Xbox One, but it also seems to be out on Steam and Discord, so check it out!

SkylanderNutts Presents Outer WildsI’m back to show off another one of my favorite new games. Outer Wilds is a new first-person, open world, sci-fi adventure/puzzle game with a twist. Watch as I show the boys what this game is about and try to solve some of the early mysteries of the Outer Wilds!

Outer Wilds is out on the Xbox One, and PC, but not the PS4. I think I say it’s also available on the PS4 in the video, but I was wrong. We are playing the game on the Xbox One as part of the Game Pass program. Check it out!
