The file size for NBA 2K18 on Switch is a technical foul

Review: Everybody's Golf

Review in Progress: Everybody's Golf

I spent most of my weekend playing Everybody's Golf. I regret nothing. Not a single moment. After a way-too-short online test session in which I swam laps as a blue-skinned space dad and dropped shruggies while lounging in a serene course, ...

FIFA 18 will be EA's 'big' test for the future of the Switch

We've seen it all before. A big publisher sticks one toe into a Nintendo platform (in this case, the Switch), and says "well everything hinges on this one game," a project that's usually a port. In EA's case, it's FIFA 18. EA has been even ...

NBA 2K18's physical launch for Switch is behind schedule

Take-Two hasn't had much to show or even say about the Nintendo Switch version of NBA 2K18, and that silence has led some to understandably assume the worst about the port. I mean, just look at this barren landing page for the game. Not a v...

I think I'm breaking controllers playing Rocket League

I have been told that I play Rocket League extremely loudly. Like, I just smash those buttons and hope good things happen. In today's episode of Red Rocket League, Steven compares it to the clacking sound that comes from a mechanical ...
