  • Video Digital Foundry Puts Various Portable Chargers to the Test With Nintendo Switch

    Get yourself 10+ hours of gaming on the go

    The Nintendo Switch battery, considering its housing within a small portable device and the demands placed on it by the system's processing, isn't too bad. With low-stress games like Blaster Master Zero you can realistically hope for 5+ hours, but playing a demanding game like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of...

    Review Human Resource Machine

    Quit your day job

    Starting its life as a PC and Wii U game before eventually making its way to mobile devices and finally Switch, Human Resource Machine is the rare type of game that feels at home on almost any platform. This is due in large part to its unconventional gameplay, coupled with an adorable art style that lulls its players into believing...

    SteamWorld Dig 2 was chosen to lead off the Switch Nindie Showcase, broadcast shortly before the system launched. The original SteamWorld Dig was a bit of a breakout hit for Image & Form, of course - though the studio had a long track record before that 3DS eShop release, it has often admitted that the success of that game took...

    Given how some Switch owners have found they are getting scratches on their screen by docking normally (though not necessarily carefully), the method shown above is not advised. Of course it's about as convincing as when old Biff Tannen tosses the Grays Sports Almanac to his younger self in 1955's Back to the Future...

    Review Waku Waku 7

    Seventh heaven

    The Neo Geo was a system blessed with more than its fair share of one-on-one fighters, which is perhaps why Sunsoft felt it was necessary to take a slightly different approach with Waku Waku 7, the sequel to the rather more serious Galaxy Fight, which launched a year beforehand in 1995. This release not only allowed Sunsoft to create...
