The Nintendo Switch is almost here! Many game review sites have a Switch, but can’t do an unboxing of the system yet.

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…

More Thoughts From Me #57: Looking Back At The Gameboy

It was a little bulky portable that you held with two hands. The screen was green and so were all the games. The graphics would probably be too basic for most gamers these days. Back then though, it was impressive to be able to play games like Tetris, a Super Mario Bros game, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in the palms of your hands. Yes, today I’m going to take a look back at the original Gameboy: the good, the…

iRoar from Creative Review

We have been playing around with the Creative iRoar Bluetooth Speaker for about a month now, and are thoroughly loving it! Although we have reviewed a number of units in the past - including a few lower level items from Creative - nothing we have used yet compares to the iRoar when it comes to the balance of portability and sound. With only a few issues to talk about, the Creative iRoar is easily recommendable by us, and although you pay a little extra than your average speaker, the end product is completely worth it.

More Thoughts From Me #55: The Life And Death of the Wii U

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I don’t regret buying a Wii U. There are a ton of great games on the Wii U. I own most of them. I also really love the Wii U gamepad. It is, currently, my favorite video game controller. That said, I’m not happy at all with how Nintendo has treated the system, especially near the end of its life. Let’s take a look back at the Life and Death of…

For the first time ever, Nintendo will have a television ad during the Super Bowl! An extended cut of the ad, which is about the Nintendo Switch, has been released online. Please take a look at the ad, Nintendo’s press release about it, and some thoughts from me about this unique ad! The Nintendo Switch will be coming out on March 3rd.

More Thoughts From Me #54: Why Do I Want An NES Classic Edition?

The NES Classic Edition has been rare since day one. I couldn’t get one then and I still don’t have one now. I had the money at day one, but don’t have that now so couldn’t buy one even if I could find one. But why would I even want an NES Classic Edition? I’ve bought most of those games over and over again through the Wii, 3DS, and Wii U. Heck, I use to own the original NES. So…
