by Peter Paltridgeon July 28, 2017
Ready to squish some smiley-faced Slimes? Square-Enix confirmed today that the latest chapter in the Dragon Quest series, the eleventh, WILL be given an English translation and sold in the US.

Do You Know Where Your Joy-Cons Are? The New Switch Update Should Help

by Peter Paltridgeon June 20, 2017
The Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Con controllers are sophisticated, tiny, and easy to lose (especially for children).

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
Super Mario Odyssey is now playable on the E3 show floor, and journalists can’t get enough. It’s the first open-world Mario title since Super Mario Sunshine, and it’s making a big impression.

E3 2017: Metroid: Samus Returns (Twice)

by Peter Paltridgeon June 13, 2017
There hasn’t been a proper new Metroid game in seven years.
