Nintendo Download: Sonic Forces

Wow, this Zelda: Breath of the Wild sword throw is perfect

I wonder how long this person spent perfecting this Zelda: Breath of the Wild sword throw. Several hours? Maybe more? Maybe it took them a while to even come up with the idea (given that this post was made months after the game's relea...

My Nintendo adds new rewards, but don't get too excited

I have a lot of tired Nintendo jokes that are ironically amusing because Nintendo rarely changes their ways, but the whole My Nintendo shtick is pretty cut and dried at this point. There isn't much to say that hasn't already been said, but ...
