When it comes to gaming processors and computing as a whole, Intel have led the field for many years now. It would be easy to forget that there are other processor manufacturers out there! Each Intel generation since 1989 has brought new and exciting advancements in gaming, with higher CPU capabilities and features that can power bigger, better games.
Gamers know that something you can always rely on is for games to adapt and evolve over time. All games go through a number of cycles in their lifetimes, and there are many different changing characteristics which you can expect to see as part of this evolution.
Hardcore gamers probably won’t need to read this article. That is because you’ve probably been reading magazines and checking websites that mention these titles for months. However, most hobby gamers struggle to remain at the cutting-edge because of other commitments.

If what the fans are producing is any indication, Yooka-Laylee is one of the most watched and anticipated titles of 2017.

We are back! If you remember when the last Story of Seasons game launched on the Nintendo 3DS, I did a number of diary entries breaking down what I was doing each month. With this new release, Trio of Towns, I plan to do the same, instead of doing a traditional review. So, let's not waste any time and get into this! We already looked at our first season in Story of Seasons here, and although I haven't finished season 2 (Summer), I have too much to talk about already!
Bye-Bye Boxboy came out in Europe yesterday. Nintendo of America announced via twitter this month that the title would come out on March 23rd too. They quickly deleted that tweet and the title did not come out in North America yesterday! What happened?

The Elite Player Backpack for the Nintendo Switch might just be the best accessory anyone can possibly purchase for their Nintendo Switch. As a portable system, you generally won't need to pack along a lot of accessories, but should you want to take your entire Switch unit with you somewhere - which I have - this storage and transport solution is the best product available. Let's dive in!
With review codes hitting media last night, it is obvious that Team 17 and Playtonic Games know they have a winner on their hands. The media is playing a game 3 weeks ahead of launch?
