I am 36 years old with a career and a family, and I thought I just did not have time for video games. I enjoyed them in my youth, spending hours upon hours maneuvering Mario and spinning Sonic until I was blue in the face. Then at some point, I just outgrew it.
I’d love to deliver up a charming little indie number this week, but my internet is down and I’m writing this from my phone.
Since I’m stuck in the dark ages, I might as well take my pick from there. Bad Dudes comes to the Switch.
