Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. Update Goes Live to Speed Things Up

Full steam ahead

Code Name S.T.E.A.M., the new IP from Intelligent Systems, certainly has a number of strengths.

You could make a coffee in the break between moves - oh, alright, we're...

The Moon in Majora's Mask Probably Has a Black Hole Inside, Because Science

Physics is actually fun

We rather enjoy videos and articles that essentially serve as 'stealth education' here at Nintendo Life. Take a much-loved game or topic and apply scientific logic to it, and you have the ingredients for a video that's both entertaining and fascinating. That criteria certainly applies to this video focused on why the moon in...
