Nintendo Download: World's End Club

World's End Club is the big focus this week on the Switch eShop, and one of the few featured games in a sea of oddities. The oddest is easily Spy Alarm, which gives off extremely '90s "your sibling will get caught breaking in your room...

Nintendo Download: PAC-MAN 99

Well, I didn't expect Pac-Man 99 to spring up out of nowhere on the eShop, but here we are. As of yesterday, Pac-Man 99 was announced and dropped on the eShop. It's there! And it's a Switch Online pack-in just like Tetris 99 ...

Nintendo Download: Star Wars: Republic Commando

It's that time again. We had a good run with a few brand new games, but now it's back to re-releases. Well, this one isn't quite the same! It's not a port of a six-month-old title that was released on every platform but Switch. No, it's Sta...

Nintendo Download: Monster Hunter Rise

Monster Hunter Rise is the big dog this week: no question. We haven't had too many of those this year so far for the Switch! A lot of the headliners have been things like Apex Legends coming to the Switch, or Plants vs. Zombies Ba...

Why did I wait so long to play Pokemon Trading Card Game?

[Narrated by Josh Picard] Growing up, I had a friend who was very into the Star Wars Customizable Card Game. He carried two binders with him throughout the fifth grade: one for his school work and one for all of his cards. I don't know...

Nintendo Download: Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury

It's a huge day for the Switch, as we're getting Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, a bonafide first-party release. We haven't had much of those in the past year or so! And even when we do get them, a few are re-releases: like...
