Fits the base game to a TT
Whenever a series attempts DLC for the first time, you’re sure to find a select few individuals pining for the olden days when you got a whole game in a single package – conveniently forgetting the fact that Street Fighter II had no less than seven different iterations – but if a game sells well and there’s enough...
It's got LEGS
It’s hard to believe that ARMS burst onto the scene three years ago today, pushing forward new gameplay ideas and mechanics that in theory couldn’t have been done on the Wii U, although you could possibly have got away with two Wii Remotes with Wii Motion Plus but let’s not get into that now. When I first got a go at it back at...
See if you can get her humming again
Like any electronic device, the Switch isn’t perfect in hardware or software and although issues with either are uncommon, they can happen. If your Switch is unresponsive and won’t turn on, or has an issue with charging, we’ve got a few solutions for you to hopefully save yourself a tremendous amount of...
Come get Snom
Pokémon have always had various ways of evolving into new beasties, and Pokémon Sword and Shield are no different. One of these curious contenders is the unassuming Snom, which can be found primarily on the northern half of Route 8 - known as Steamdrift Way. Just keep an eye out for one wandering around in the grassy patches, and...
Or '51 Worldwide Games' as it likes to be called
If there's one thing we can't stand about most games released on the Switch it's the fact that they're only ever really a single game. True, some games have mini games and extra modes, but by golly it's just not enough for us, and Nintendo was apparently listening in when we expressed this. Clubhouse...
We're all guilty of seeing some of the past through rose-tinted spectacles, and that's definitely the case with Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii. After seeing Shulk in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2
Now it's Reyn time!
After two (sort of) sequels, the original Xenoblade Chronicles is heading to Nintendo Switch under the swanky new guise of Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, and we've had a right ruddy good go at it. It's not just a shiny new coat of paint though, there's also a brand new bonus story mission called Future Connected, and...
Not only Nuzlocke, but also...
Pokémon Sword and Shield are great games in our eyes – and in the eyes of many others – but there’s no hiding from the fact that the level of difficulty is, shall we say, a little on the accessible side. That’s great if you’re just looking to have a fun adventure, but for some people, a little strife can...
Give them their (amiibo) green card
If you've been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons for some time now you're probably set up with at least a few villagers (or should that be islanders?) and have a fairly cosy existence, but for a game that allows you to customise so much of your life, you might be feeling a bit miffed at some of the so-called...
The shores of Bell
Back when – what feels like forever ago – we found out that a new Animal Crossing game would be coming to Switch, we were told basically diddly squat about the whole thing, but excitement ensued nonetheless. As time went by and we learnt more and more about it, the hype reached ever higher rungs on the big ladder of...
Book with the Nook
Animal Crossing games don’t come around all that often – at least not mainline games – so it’s hardly an understatement to say that hype surrounding Animal Crossing: New Horizons has been a touch feverish recently. Well, we were lucky enough to get our hands on i
Shorts, skirts, long hair, short hair
Making your character look like you is a big deal to a lot of gamers in games that offer character customisation, and so when certain styles or features don't quite look how you would want them to, it can be a touch annoying. What's even worse is when there is a hairstyle or eye shape that matches your real...
No ARM in that
A graphic novel series based on the ARMS IP has been in the works at Dark Horse Comics for some time now, but we're sure we don't need to tell you all that as wonderful as the game is, it's not exactly at the forefront of most Switch owners' minds anymore; feel free to correct us on this fact in the comments. Despite us now being...
Crispiness all round
A while ago, data miners and other whizzy-types found options in the Switch version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition, and were surprised with how much of the blurriness was able to be removed with little to no effort. Well now with
Temtem, we have selected thusly!
The chatter surrounding Pokémon Sword & Shield – the latest entry in the series – has sparked some fans to drift apart from the OG creature-collector to some degree, so the time for a competitor to launch (in some form) has likely never been better. As it happens Temtem has done just that, and to say it's...
Genshin a no no, baby!
You've no doubt already heard the news that the upcoming game Genshin Impact not only bears a striking resemblance to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but that it's also now been confirmed to be coming to the Nintendo Switch. With that in mind, we thought it might be useful to

Update: Available today in North America
What's more fun than playing some of your favourite games on the Switch?
