The RetroBeat: Ocarina of Time is 20 years old and remains an all-time classic
November 23, 2018

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time is 20 years old today! The Nintendo 64 classic came out on November 21, 1998. And, well, I guess I should say something … but it’s honestly kind of bizarre trying to write about why Ocarina of Time is good. I mean … it’s Ocarina of Time! It took the Zelda formula established in A Link to the Past and Link’s Awakening and perfectly transitioned it into a 3D world. I love Super Mario 64. It’s one...

That is up year-over-year, and it’s little surprise considering two of the biggest games of 2018 debuted during the month. “October 2018 tracked spending across video game hardware, software, accessories and game cards grew 73 percent when compared to a year ago, to $1.5 billion,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said....

Satisfye Pro Gaming Grip for Nintendo Switch review
November 20, 2018

I have a friend who is too big. Just in general. He’s too tall to be allowed. This is a problem for him in many ways, I’m sure. But the only one I truly sympathize with him on is that his hands are too large for the Nintendo Switch in portable mode. Mine are also too big. I strained some muscles and ligaments playing that system for extended periods of time when Dead Cells came out. But he finds the Switch so uncomfortable that he...

Taiwanese grandpa shows you the best way to play Pokemon Go
November 10, 2018

Grandpa Shark. That’s what I think this 70-year old Taiwanese is. He’s such a pro gamer for playing Pokemon Go with so much passion. Chen San-yuan is perhaps the most dedicated Pokemon Go player in the world for playing with a total of 11 smartphones–eleven! That’s a lot but we understand why he’s so into one of the most phenomenal augmented reality games ever. If we’re part of the Pokemon Go team,...
