The levels of nostalgia and excitement surrounding...[Read More]
Last night, Nintendo released the 4.00 Firmware for the Nintendo Switch, and with it comes some welcome additions to the ever popular system. The biggest news may be the fact that you can now use video capture right from the system, which before now has only been limited to screenshots.

Metroid titles, usually, are amazing adventures starring one of the most badass women in gaming through alien worlds to single-handedly take out threats to galactic safety. Whil...[Read More]
Confession time! I have a problem. I am hopelessly addicted to the purchasing of Amiibo, the wonderfully designed Nintendo figures that unlock things in various games. Amiibo are literally what I’ve always wanted as a child, a high-quality Nintendo figure that I could display proudly; the fact they unlock things is just icing on the cake. Out of the hundred or so Amiibo I have, Shovel Knight...[Read More]
