Nintendo Switch Pre-orders up again at Walmart

Nintendo Switch Pre-orders up again at Walmart

While many stores have - seemingly - sold out of the Nintendo Switch well before its on-sale date, Walmart suggests they've got stock. They wont have the device in stores until the street date, just like every other store that we're aware of so far - but they've got numbers. Walmart's suggestion is that they have enough potential stock that they're able to continue offering the Nintendo Switch on pre-order with guarantee of a unit to every person that comes in and orders.

RetroEngine Sigma wants to cure your NES Classic hang-ups

RetroEngine Sigma wants to cure your NES Classic hang-ups

Nintendo’s NES Classic (Famicom Mini in Japan) is definitely one of the hottest gaming items this half of the year but it suffers from two fatal flaws. It is terribly in short supply and it is woefully limited to 30 old NES titles. Fortunately for gamers (unfortunately for Nintendo), it has inspired not a few takes on the palm-sized mini-console. RetroEngine Sigma might simply look like one of those, but it is going the extra mile. Not only does it not limit you to 30 NES titles, it doesn’t even limit you to NES titles alone, boasting of supporting 28 gaming systems.

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. But considering this is the Nintendo NX we’re talking about, that hype, or at least the expectation of it, is pretty much warranted. And while Nintendo itself is saying nothing, the Internet has practically said everything, more or less.

Famicom Mini is Japan’s NES Classic version

Famicom Mini is Japan’s NES Classic version

To those unfamiliar with gaming history, Nintendo actually had two very different versions of its “Nintendo Entertainment System”, depending on which side of the globe you lived in. In Japan and nearby territories, the company’s hit console was called the “Family Computer”, lovingly referred to as the “Famicom”. In the West, it went by the now standard “NES”. So when Nintendo announced the coming arrival of the miniaturized NES Classic, it was only fitting that it would launch a throwback exclusive to its roots. And thus, the Famicom mini was born.

A patent application has surfaced that shows Nintendo is thinking about a slick new controller that can be configured to some extent to how the player wants it.

NVIDIA SHIELD multiplayer game Ultimate Chicken Horse Review : Killer Cute

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.
