It’s time to brawl in the oddly named Snack World on the Switch. Even stranger, it’s somehow the week’s headline game over Darksiders: Genesis.
It’s not that Snack World doesn’t look good, well maybe it is, but I digress. Seriously though, how is it that this is the headline Switch game in a week that also has Darksiders: Genesis? And yes, I know that Genesis didn’t exactly light up the world when it debuted on PC and Stadia in December, but still.
Genesis is part of a fairly large series and it actually looks pretty slick. Heck, we even gave it our Game of the Month nod on PC. So to see it lose out to a title that does seemingly very similar things, but doesn’t look half as good, is… weird.
Maybe I’m missing something.
