No harm done
Reflect on the troubled era of the Wii U generation and you might recall the 2012 launch title Darksiders II, developed by Vigil Games and published by THQ.

Four lists, forty great games
While much of the attention has unsurprisingly been given to the Switch, Nintendo's recent avalanche of financial data has also given us an updated look at sales across other recent systems.

Time to bulk up your hearts and stamina
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an incredible game, both in terms of critical acclaim and sheer size.
