The Best Screen Protectors for your Nintendo Switch and Switch Lite in 2021

When you drop a few hundred dollars on a new piece of tech, you're probably going to want to protect your purchase from scratches and dings. The Nintendo Switch is no exception!

Twitch is now available on the Nintendo Switch

Even though the Nintendo Switch has been out for almost five years now, there still aren't many media services available on the platform. Hulu and YouTube are available for download, but Netflix, Spotify, Amazon Prime Video, and countless other video and audio platforms are still inaccessible. Thankfully, one more video app has just arrived: the...

Nintendo basically denies that it’s making a 4K Switch Pro

The launch of the Nintendo Switch OLED model shocked quite a few people, as rumors had been flying for months that it would be a whole lot more. It packs a 7-inch OLED display, whereas the previous model had a 6.2-inch LCD display. Not only is that quite an upgrade in terms of contrast, but...

This Week in Gaming: Bayonetta 3, Kirby in 3D, and a strange Mario cast

Halfway through Thursday, I was prepared to write the most boring This Week in Gaming ever — and then the Nintendo Direct happened, and my week got a whole lot more interesting. Most of the news this week comes from that show, but I think it’s important that we address the new developments in the...

Nintendo is launching a new tier of Switch Online with N64 and Sega Genesis games

Nintendo has officially announced that it has not, in fact, forgotten that its catalog of retro games features more than NES and SNES games. In this week’s Nintendo Direct, the Big N announced that it was adding a new selection of Nintendo 64 classic titles to its Switch Online subscription service, as well as several...

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is just $42 right now ($18 off)

Nintendo released The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in 2017, becoming the last Nintendo-published game on the Wii U and a launch game for the Switch. It's still one of the best games on either console, with a massive open world to explore and complex puzzles to solve. In typical Nintendo fashion, the...

Nintendo Switch Online may be adding Game Boy games

There’s a rumor in the gaming industry that Nintendo may soon bring another of its extensive libraries to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers — specifically, the libraries of the Game Boy and the Game Boy Color. There’s a chance this could be a gateway to bring other Nintendo gameplay libraries to the Switch… at least, so...

This Week in Gaming: Saints Row, Halo Infinite, and the rest of Gamescom’s announcements

Most of the news that was fit to print this week was premiered at Gamescom, the European gaming event where we got to see some previously-unseen gameplay from the major titles, including a new Saints Row, Call of Duty: Vanguard, and Halo Infinite. I can’t contain every piece of news from Gamescom, but I’ll try...

This Week in Gaming: Goodbye McCree, Nintendo and Game Pass indies, and Rockstar remasters

It’s been another quiet week in the August gaming slump, as we prepare for the big releases later this month. The Activision Blizzard scandal continues unfurling, which isn’t so good. On the other hand, the Nintendo Switch is getting a bunch of indies, which is very good. Xbox Game Pass continues to get better, and...

This Week in Gaming: The Non-Pro Switch OLED, Assassin’s Creed Infinity, and GTA 6

The games industry’s news this week has been somewhat polarizing. We’re getting a new Nintendo Switch… but not the one we thought we were getting. Ubisoft’s working on a new Assassin’s Creed game… but it’s a live service evolving world game unlike the previous single-player titles. Even the rumors about the next Grand Theft Auto...

Nintendo introduces an OLED model of the Switch

Nintendo has announced a new version of the Nintendo Switch hybrid console, but it may not be everything you were hoping for. The company calls it the Nintendo Switch OLED model, and if that name isn't clear enough, this is a version with an OLED screen instead of the LCD panel on the original. It...
