  • News Nintendo Has No Plans To Bring Dockless Switch Bundle To The West

    It's exclusive to Japan for now

    Nintendo wants every house to have more than one Switch console, and fulfilling that ambition involves new SKUs - the first of which has just released in Japan.

  • Feature Some Mario Games Just Can't Be Played Properly Anymore

    At least five, anyway

    Video games are a funny medium; one's released, and about a year afterwards you're not likely to be able to buy a brand new copy of it unless you're very lucky or it gets a second run. As such they age, and in a time of online patches and internet servers being so integral it's likely only going to get harder to play games...

It's a mystery, then, why so many RPGs ask you to play minor variations on the same part. There are only so many times you can put yourself in the shoes of an amnesiac swordsman, adopted prodigy or mysterious...
