Another limited edition Nintendo Switch Pro Controller design puts me one pad closer to having the ultimate 4 player party, free of friends complaining that the Joy Cons feel too small in their gigantic hands. You see, I do care! Continue reading

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Collector’s Edition Unboxing

A new Xenoblade has arrived on the Nintendo Switch just in time for Christmas, and look at the size of that box! As far as Nintendo collector’s editions go, this one is a monster, and all I can think is where I’m going to store it. Maybe on the side to admire, maybe under the bed when anyone comes over… I guess that solves that conundrum.

Pokemon Ultra Sun Fan Edition Unboxing

Pokemon Sun and Moon have gone Ultra this year! It used to be that an updated Pokemon game was released as a third version (Yellow for Red & Blue, Crystal for Gold & Silver, Emerald for Ruby & Sapphire, Platinum for Diamond & Pearl) but things went a little loopy at the end of the DS era. Black & White saw third and fourth versions with a 2 stuck to the end, and now here we are again with a new Sun & Moon with an Ultra bolted to the front.

Here we are, it’s the Metal Slug everyone who knows Metal Slug knows, and also the Metal Slug everyone who doesn’t know Metal Slug knows (say that fast). Number 3 is the classic, that one to play, that one that always sees a re-release no matter the console, and here we are again with it on the Switch. It’s as they say, three really is the magic number.  Continue reading

The Virtual Console has been absent on the Nintendo Switch, but thanks to Hamster Corporation, (what a fluffy name) we’ve been seeing a series of NeoGeo arcade classics weekly. Mario Bros. is not a NeoGeo classic of course, but it’s the start of Hamster branching out. And Nintendo Arcade games makes for a pretty big branch.
