Preview: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

It's hard to believe that I'm actually playing Breath of the Wild right now, and it is freaking me out a little bit. As fans, we have waited a LONG time for this game - originally scheduled to just be released on the Wii U, or so we thought - and to finally have it on the Nitnendo Switch is a dream come true. Let's face it: it has been a LONG time since we have played a new Zelda title on a home console, with the latest few releases being remakes of older titles. Although I cannot get too ...

 

Preview: Nintendo Switch User Interface, Abdallah Sets One Up!

The Wii U user interface was very blocky, bland, and somewhat aimed at kids. Sure, it was easy to use, but it wasn't as visually appealing as what we got out of the Xbox One and PS4 interfaces. The Nintendo 3DS, while like the Wii U in it's blocky look, eventually gave gamers the option to customize their home screens, keeping the child like presence and appeal, but giving older gamers a chance to make it different. With the Nintendo Switch, it appears as if Nintendo is attempting to ...

 

Preview: Nintendo Switch Build Quality

Although the Wii was a relatively well built console, nothing Nintendo has built to date rivals the quality of the Nintendo Switch. The Switch has the unique purpose of being both a home console and a portable device, which required special engineering to ensure that nothing was left out, and that build wise, it was solid.

 
 

Nintendo Switch Preview Coverage, Abdallah Unboxes One!

It is almost March 3rd, but thanks to Nintendo of Canada, we have had the opportunity to pay around with it, 1-2-Switch, and the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild over a week early. While we are not allowed to publish scores and final thoughts, a number of things have surfaced for me - positives and negatives - that I will discuss over a series of articles.

 

Lego City Undercover Goes Multiplatform in April

Lego City Undercover is one of my favorite games on the Wii U. The game is a lot of fun. It was also an exclusive game for the system for a long time. But soon, non-Wii U players will get a chance to check out the game. Lego City Undercover will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in April. We have a new trailer for the game below and more details about the multiplatform…

 

Nintendo eShop & Indies Will Be Ready For Switch Launch

Nintendo announced today that the eshop would be available at the launch of their new system: the Switch! Not only that, but there will be some Indie games on day 1 too. We have a press release below detailing what will and won’t be available on the Switch eshop’s first day! I remember when the 3DS came out and there was no online store. It was a few months before the Nintendo eshop appeared on the system. The Nintendo Switch,…

 
 

Nintendo Switch Unboxing – Nintendo Minute (Video)

The Nintendo Switch is almost here! Many game review sites have a Switch, but can’t do an unboxing of the system yet. However, Nintendo Minute, Nintendo of America’s official youtube show, did an unboxing today! Take a look at this video and then please come back for my thoughts on it. The Nintendo Switch looks amazing in this video. I’ve seen other videos with the system, but I never realized just how small and sleek the system was before. The…

 

Loot Crate – Early 2017

It's been a while since we unboxed and reviewed a Loot Crate subscription box, and that isn't because we are lazy! We have been swamped lately with work, and since the delivery date of these boxes is so random, it is hard to schedule their articles. Now that the Switch is in our hands and things are settling down again, we thought we would highlight a few of our favorite items from the past few months, and we kick it off with...

 

Are Websites Reviewing 1-2-Switch?

The lack of chatter about 1-2-Switch is something I've been thinking about over the last couple days. As more and more media sources get their Nintendo Switch units in the mail, I'm noticing that when they unbox their package from Nintendo they contain a lot of things: Zelda amiibo, Switch accessories, a system, and always a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. One thing I'm not seeing - highlighted for me by GameXplains latest video - is a lack of a copy of 1-2-Switch. Are ...

 
 

Halo Wars 2 Controls – Choose your Platform Wisely

Halo Wars 2 will be launching soon on both the PC and the Xbox One, and our review of the games content should be live soon. The issue with Halo Wars is that it launching on two platforms: one that is great for RTS style games, and one that really isn't. We spent a lot of time with the Xbox One version of the game, and thought instead of dragging the title down in our review with critical controller comments, we would talk about it separately.
