Nintendo Download: Swimsanity

It's a wacky week for the Nintendo eShop, as we're getting with a "reasonable" 27-ish games debuting over the next several days: which is typically considered a light load when 30-40 games battle each other for sales. Swimsanity is pro...

Nintendo Download: Jump Rope Challenge

Does it feel like E3 week has come and gone? Not really, right? I mean we got the PS5 stream, but it's just not the same without a Nintendo Direct giving us that single piece of huge news that dominates the June conversation. Alas, there ar...
