The Chinese phone manufacturer Huawei debuted three new products at a launch event yesterday. The Mate 20 is a slick flagship phone that checks all the existing boxes and then some. Then there’s the Mate 20 Pro, a slightly bigger and even more powerful version of the base phone. And finally, the Mate 20 X, gaming…
It’s seldom simple figuring out which, if any, version of a Ubisoft game to buy. Now they’ve made a toys-to-life game that we like, but figuring out which figures and accessories to buy to enjoy Starlink: Battle For Atlas is confusing. Ubisoft complicates things further by allowing players to purchase digital versions…
After learning that The World Ends With You was going to have an official Italian translation, the person who made a well known Italian fan translation tuned into a stream to check out how they handled the translation problems he struggled with. While watching, he started to notice that it looked familiar. Much of it…
Adorable rogue-lite Moonlighter now has a release date on Switch: November 5th. By day, you run a shop. By night, you fight monsters to get things to sell in your shop. Like every cute indie game I get obsessed with, I’m sure it’ll be great on Switch.
Ubisoft’s toys-optional toys-to-life space opera arrives this week on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Switch. While I’ve only had a couple of days to dive into the sci-fi adventure, I’ve already found several things to love about Starlink: Battle for Atlas.
When Nintendo’s Star Fox crew shows up at the beginning of Ubisoft’s new toy-based space epic, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, they’re ready to see the adventure through to the very end. They’re a surprisingly big part of the Switch version of the game.
If you have never played The World Ends With You before, the Nintendo Switch version released on Thursday night is not a bad way to get into it. Final Remix retains the game’s great sense of humor, its fantastic music, and Tetsuya Nomura’s most restrained character designs. But if you have played it before—say, if…
Originally released on PC in 2016, adults-only Omega Vampire describes itself as a “New Type of Vampire Boys’ Love Game.” Next year, it is coming onto the Nintendo Switch.
Today, Nintendo continued to build out the NES library in its Switch Online app with the previously-announced addition of NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon’s Key, and Super Dodge Ball. But it also had a surprise: “Living the life of luxury!,” a hacked save file for The Legend of Zelda that starts players out with a…
Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition is coming to Switch today. Drinkbox Studios announced the stealth release in a press release, adding that Guacamelee! 2 will arrive on the Nintendo console sometime in December. It won’t have any additional content, but will support up to four players with the Joy-Con.
How many Goombas can be stacked atop one another in Super Mario Odyssey? Playing normally the answer is 30, but video game developer and dissector Skelux has managed a stack of 200. A very unstable stack of 200.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Nintendo will be introducing a new version of its popular Switch console next year.
A sublime combination of fantasy board game and card game, League of Geek’s Armello has been one of my go-to competitive strategy joints since it first hit the scene back in 2015. Now it’s on the Nintendo Switch, and while my love remains strong, my eyes can’t quite handle the tiny text of handheld mode.
RetroArch is a homebrew program that combines a ton of different gaming emulators into a single, relatively sleek package. Development on it began in 2010, with version 1.0 releasing in 2014. Several updates later, today the people behind it released the latest version, which can run on hacked Nintendo Switches.
Mega Man 11 is a fine game, and a worthy eleventh entry in a series that once set the bar for tricky platformers. It also feels oddly shallow, the latest iteration of a formula that has gone largely unchanged for decades. Mega Man 11 is great at being a Mega Man game. Maybe that’s why it didn’t do much for me.
If you’ve got a hacked Switch and Skyrim, you apparently can now bring popular mods from the PC version of the game with you, including the ones that appeal to hornier players.
Super Mario Party comes out on Friday. It’s the series’ debut on Switch and the first main entry since 2015’s ill-fated Mario Party 10 on Wii U. It has 80 new mini games, one of which even utilizes multiple Switches to create a shared, continuous screen. What it doesn’t have is handheld mode support, the first in a…
TowerFall is out on the Switch today, just over five years after it originally released on the ill-fated Ouya. It was one of the best party games then and has continued to be one of the all-time best since. It’s still great on Switch, but more than anything I can’t get over is how much fun I’ve had playing it alone.
When Nintendo Switch Online launched last week, subscribers gained the ability to finally back up their save files. One question remained, though: what would happen if the subscription lapsed? Nintendo’s original support page FAQ was vague on the matter, but today the company confirmed they’ll last for six months.
Mark of the Ninja: Remastered will hit Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 9. The new version of the 2012 hit side-scrolling stealth game will have updated visuals as well as include the new level, character, and items from the Special Edition DLC. Owners of the base game can upgrade for $5.
