Nintendo is hosting an eShop sale for Switch, 3DS, and Wii U

If you're anything like me, you might be scoffing at the idea of loading up on even more Nintendo Switch games. I've put all of five minutes into Bayonetta. I'm midway through Celeste. I could keep scrolling right on my Switch home screen a...

Nintendo Download: Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 Plus

Nintendo is really surprising me as we enter an era where games aren't taking that long to be ported or straight-up designed for the Switch. While a lot of its early offerings were ports of one, two, or three-year old games we're now g...

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...
