Kirby Star Allies Demo Impressions

I haven’t always been a Kirby fan. In fact, I didn’t know much about the big pink fur ball until the Wii Virtual Console.

Snakebyte Power Pack for Nintendo Switch Review

One of the downsides of the Nintendo Switch is that when on the go, the battery might not always last as long as you might like it, especially when on long car rides or while flying. This can be remedied by having a nexternal battery and a USB-C cable, but that can become a clunky mess, and add extra items you then need to be accountable for.
