Nintendo NX is finally getting a teaser, teases Nintendo

Nintendo NX is finally getting a teaser, teases Nintendo

Teasing a teaser. Yes, let those words sink in. Ridiculous as it may sound, it’s really a common practice these days. You tease the teaser, then drop the teaser. Months, maybe even years, before the teaser for the final product. All of them driving up the hype.

NVIDIA SHIELD multiplayer game Ultimate Chicken Horse Review : Killer Cute

What we've experienced today is the DIY-base living room gaming equivalent of Exploding Kittens. While EK is a card game as well as an awesome mobile game, the game Ultimate Chicken Horse is a bit of a race. You choose from 1 of 4 animals, choose a level, and go to work getting from point A to point B. But it's not that simple. Only - at the same time - it really IS that simple.

Nintendo patent reveals game console without optical drive

A newly discovered patent from Nintendo reveals the gaming company may be planning to ditch the optical drive in its next console. Thankfully they aren't planning to make a return to cartridges, like in the pre-GameCube days, but rather forego any kind of drive at all for inserting games. Instead, it seems Nintendo may have finally caught up to the thinking of Sony and Microsoft, and sees a future where games are downloaded over the internet and stored locally.
