Review: Playbudz Grip Extenders

Official controllers come in one shape, and one size. Most of us either aren't bothered by the fact, or have learned to work around it over the years. Being in the former camp, I've never really considered the need to help extend the grip o...

My Nintendo just added a heap of new discounts

I'm kind of tired of looking at the "coming soon" Nintendo Switch section of the My Nintendo website. It's been nearly a year at this point, and should have helped bolster its launch from day one. Alas we're all kind of just letting our coi...

My Nintendo has some new games up for grabs!

An update to My Nintendo is such a rare occurrence that I tend to forget the service exists. I don't think I've logged in since the last time I wrote about games being offered and that was only to grab screenshot. I suppose today marks the ...

Nintendo Download: Celeste

The Switch might be missing out on a few big games like Monster Hunter World and Dragon Ball FighterZ, but it has at least one trick up its sleeve. Celeste is hitting the system today, as well as Tales of the Tiny Planet, Earth Wa...

The Switch's lifetime sales in France surpass the Wii U

Earlier this week, the Switch beat out the Wii U's lifetime sales in Japan. The same Switch that's been out for 10 months against the Wii U's five plus years. That same milestone is now happening all over the world it seems, as the Switch j...

Nintendo Download: Dragon Quest Builders demo

We just had a pretty huge "Mini" Direct this morning, but none of it is actually coming to fruition today outside of a Dragon Quest Builders demo on Switch. Nintendo is peddling a Pokken DX "Battle Pack" (Season Pass), but the first pa...

This amazing archive lets you revisit Miiverse

Miiverse may be dead but it's not gone. Nintendo shut down its bizarre and lovable social network service last month, and in the lead-up to that closure, app developer Drastic Actions got to work archiving as much content as possible for po...

Kept you waiting, huh? We've seen robots with weird life choices overtake the top PS4 slot, Fleischer cartoons made a comeback nearly a century later, and a Nintendo game triumph on mobile. It was a weird, wonderful year, so wonderful ...
