Did you upgrade to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, or are you angry it exists?

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is out on Switch, and I feel like I've heard reactions from both sides of the fence. Some folks who maybe missed out on the Wii U entirely are stoked with it, but an equal amount seem to be angry that we're not even...   read

The underwhelming contents of a seemingly-unopenable chest in Breath of the Wild have at last been revealed

Between Breath of the Wild's Aris Beach and Clarnet Coast lies an unassuming, yet somewhat mysterious, chest. At first glance, it appears to be just like every other metallic chest that's submerged underwater, although this one al...   read
