Classic graphics added to Cave Story+ on Nintendo Switch

Slowly but surely, Cave Story+ on Nintendo Switch is getting even better. Today's update doesn't introduce two-player co-op (I'm going to lose my mind when that day comes), but it does add a much-appreciated option: classic graphics. If you...

The best part of Binding of Isaac on the Switch? Easy co-op

I can't be the only one who thinks of food when I slide off those Switch controllers right? It reminds me of breaking off a piece of candy or bread, or something. I've been doing that frequently over the weekend to test out The Binding...
