Let’s talk about the Nintendo Switch!

Today, Nintendo finally showed off what their Codename: NX is. It turns out to be a machine named the Nintendo Switch; and as predicted many months ago, it’s a console/portable hybrid system with a detachable controller.

Return to the Review: Mario Kart DS

Back in 2005, the DS was finally picking up steam in the game department as better games got released. Back then I wrote a reader review for┬áMario┬áKart DS. It was a pretty good game, that and it’s focus on Nintendo Wi-Fi connection, made playing Mario Kart online fun, despite it’s flaws and easy exploits. It’s a shame that the 3DS game didn’t interest me in the slightest…
