When will the Nintendo Switch sellouts end in Japan? Who knows. It’s autumn, and the console is still hard to get in many places.
How does the seminal role-playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim perform on a handheld console with the processing power of a high-end tablet? Pretty good, as it turns out.
The first half of 2017 was crammed with exceptional games. That high tide ebbed in May, and I’ve spent the last couple of weeks going back and catching up on what I missed. I’ve also spent a lot of time playing Minecraft, a game that came out almost six years ago.
This week, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim comes to the Nintendo Switch. It will join previous releases on PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One and PS4. Above are only three of the versions, but let’s see how all of them stack up.
Switch launch game Super Bomberman R might not have been everyone’s favorite, but it’s still getting love. Today’s 2.0 update adds a brand-new 3-on-3 Grand Prix battle mode, fixes some bugs, and adds characters and accessories based on Konami classics like Rumble Roses and Silent Hill.
After not playing Snipperclips for months, I had more or less written the game off as being easy and filler-y. But after last week’s DLC, Snipperclips Plus, I was wrong.
Until today, I only got my ass kicked at Rocket League indoors, on a couch, proximate to a television. Now that the beloved car soccer game is on the Switch, the realm of ass-kicking possibilities is infinite. I didn’t know I wanted this and I am so happy.
Nintendo Switch owners yearning to keep their system dashboard as pretty as possible did not appreciate Kingdom: New Lands’ minimalist icon design. Well their nightmare is now over. This week’s game update swapped the pixelated crown for an icon so epic it got its own trailer.
When we last left Lego Marvel Super Heroes, the Avengers, X-Men and Fantastic Four had banded together to gather the cosmic doohickeys needed to finish story mode and get to the exciting free-roaming bits. Four years later, the X-Men and Fantastic Four are gone, but everything else is pretty much the same.
Doom does not perform nearly as well on the Switch as it does on PS4, Xbox One, or PC. On Nintendo’s latest console, Doom runs at a lower framerate, with big sacrifices in resolution and graphical fidelity. But really, isn’t it a miracle that Doom is on the Switch at all?
Available on Steam and mobile and coming to the Switch tomorrow and PS4 next week, Cat Quest is a charming little action role-playing game. Quest to save your catnapped sister from an evil overlord, or just wander the world killing monsters, casting spells and gathering loot. Either way, it’s a lot of fun.
Along with the usual assortment of games, this week’s Nintendo Download includes the Switch’s first entertainment app, Hulu, which should be available later today. Can Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, Crunchyroll, Crackle, that comedy one and some sort of sports thing be far behind?
For the past week, I’ve been falling ever more deeply in love with Super Mario Odyssey. I like a lot of things about this game, but most of all, I like that there’s no timer.
There are dozens of outfits for Mario to wear in Super Mario Odyssey, and the game will even comment on your fashion sense. Mario isn’t what I would call a stylish guy, but I have to admit he almost looks cool in some of these outfits. Here are my favorites.
We’re just over three weeks away from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and to celebrate, Nintendo today offered a bunch of new details for the upcoming Switch role-playing game, including a spotlight of the combat system and the reveal of a season pass.
If your gray or even neon Nintendo Switch Joy-Con are starting to feel a little drab, you can dress them up with Indigo 7 skins for 40% off today.
SteamWorld Dig 2 takes place in a colorful world inspired by Western movies. “Is there such a thing as something too western-y?” Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson wondered to me over email. If you look at the game, apparently not.
Wheels of Aurelia, now out on Switch, is a smart, charming game that takes you on a road trip through Italy in the 70s.
The Switch Pro controller isn’t just one of the best ways to control your Nintendo Switch, it might be one of the best gamepads ever made, period. We’ve never seen it cheaper than today’s $59 deal. Just be sure you’re logged into a Rakuten account, and use code GIVE10 at checkout to save $10.
Owlboy is coming to the Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on February 13. The retro-inspired adventure platformer was in development for nine years before finally releasing on PC last year. I played it and thought it was worth the wait.
