Back when the Nintendo Switch first arrived, our biggest gripe was the lack of top-tier games for the platform, outside of the excellent The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which initially sold more copies than the hybrid console itself. Oh, how times have changed. There are now a lot more compelling titles for the Switch, and more on the way. One of them appears to be Fortnite, the crazy-popular battle royale shooter that has eclipsed PlayerUnknown's Battleground (PUBG) in concurrent user count. Rumors that Fortnite was heading to the Switch kicked up a notch over the last week, especially... Read more...

Here's a protip if you haven't already played Resident Evil 7 but plan on doing so—the game is best played at night with the lights turn off, and with the volume cranked up. That is, if you like a good scare. As to which platform to play on, we tend to favor the PC around these parts, though it's also available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and surprise, surprise, Capcom just announced it's headed to the Nintendo Switch as well. It will be yet another top-tier title to land on the Switch, adding to its growing catalog of games, which was our biggest complaint when the hybrid console... Read more...
The Nintendo Switch is a kickass hybrid gaming console that has been a strong seller even since it launched early last year. The platform is bolstered by hot modern games like Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Splatoon 2, and Zelda Breath of the Wild, but Nintendo hasn't exactly bent over backwards to deliver its popular classic games to the platform. For retro gaming, Nintendo will politely point you towards the SNES Classic Edition or the upcoming rerelease of the NES Classic Edition. However, thanks to some newly exploitable Switch hacks (courtesy of the NVIDIA... Read more...
One of the neat things about Nintendo's hybrid Switch console is that it has a kickstand on the back for tabletop gaming. It's part of what makes the Switch such an attractive console, as it ties into the system's flexible nature—hook it up to your TV for big screen gaming, hold it in your hand for gaming on the go, or set it up on a table and play with friends. But what happens when the battery runs low? Nintendo is addressing that very question with a new charging stand, and it's affordably priced to boot. "With a handy port for an AC adapter on the side, the adjustable charging stand allows... Read more...
Word of the Nintendo Switch Online service first surfaced last June, and all we really knew about it at the time was that Nintendo was promising the service would be affordable.

Nintendo has priced its Switch Online service at $3.99 per month, $7.99 for three months, and $19.99 per year for individuals. A family plan is available for those with more people wanting to play, even if those people are on different Switch systems. That family plan supports... Read more...
The battle royale genre is emerging as one of the biggest developments in gaming since the advent of first person shooters, or at least it feels that way with how popular PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Fortnite are at the moment. Taking on both, and especially the latter with its cel-shaded graphics, is a new game called Crazy Justice, and it's headed to the Nintendo Switch with cross-platform gameplay. Crazy Justice hit the crowdfunding scene last year where it raised over $51,000 from 556 backers. It would raise more money following the campaign, hitting $67,128 in all. Those are all...

Nintendo has been selling Switch consoles in droves pushing its earnings to record levels. Months back, a company called Gamevice took issue with Nintendo and filed a patent infringement suit against the Switch for allegedly infringing on patents relating to how controllers attach to the sides of an electronic device. While the Switch controllers attach only to the Switch console, the Gamevice patent has to do with controllers that attach to each side of its Wikipad gaming tablet and detachable controllers for third-party tablets. Gamevice eventually dropped the lawsuit for unknown reasons. That... Read more...
