You could say the company was "in the dock"...
Switch owner Michael Skiathitis has filed a class action lawsuit in the U.S. district court of central California against peripheral manufacturer Nyko after one of the company's docks bricked his console. Nyko's docks proved popular upon release as they were smaller and cheaper than the real thing, but...
Docks "do not undergo Nintendo’s testing and evaluation process"
When Nintendo pushed the 5.0.0 firmware update live for the Switch recently, it had an unwelcome side-effect for some owners - the newly-updated console doesn't seem to play nice with third-party docks. Some users have reported that third-party docks - like those from Nyko -...
What's up, Dock?
If you're using a third-party dock with your Switch then you might want to revert back to the official option for the foreseeable future, as we're seeing numerous reports that said docks are "bricking" consoles after the recent 5.0 system update.

And it won't scratch the screen, either!
Nintendo is asking quite a bit for the official Switch dock when you consider that there's not exactly a lot of tech contained inside.

8Bitdo NES30 Vs Nyko Miniboss
The NES Classic Edition is a wonderful micro-sized retro-gaming machine; availability issues aside its hard to find much fault with, it apart from the rather short controller cable which comes with the otherwise excellent replica of the original NES controller.

Extends battery life, tries to stay out of ugly tree
The 3DS Circle Pad Pro isn't widely loved, it's safe to say, with comments around the peripheral ranging from 'it's OK and works' to 'OMG WTF!!!'. Much of the attention when it released was around arguments that 3DS should have included two Circle Pads in its design, and also that it was...
Gripping or griping?
