Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Ubisoft have been wanting to do a crossover with Nintendo for years, and now it’s finally here. Okay, before you run away thinking, “Raving Rabbids and Mario? What a weird combo,” first hear me out!

Splatoon 2

When the Switch first came out, there were scoffers and catcallers that cried, “Hey, look! Nintendo’s trying to make Splatoon a thing!” Pay them no heed.

Woh, now. Hold up! You there, are incorrect. ARMS is nothing like the hypersensitive, jiggly and sometimes frustrating Wii boxing. I’m not sur...

The Nintendo Switch!

To our utter most excitement, Di and I were invited to check out the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo’s new, quirky console. Our adventure began as we walked cautiously into the fancy lobby of a hotel. We didn’t really know where to go, but after a bit of searching we found a sign that said, “Nintendo. Level 10. Get key from Reception.” After acquiring a key, we entered the elevat...
