Nintendo to increase Switch production to meet ongoing customer demand

Nintendo to increase Switch production to meet ongoing customer demand

In case you haven't already heard, Nintendo's new Switch console has been a very hot item over the last few months, and eager buyers have been facing stock shortages since its launch in early March. If you haven't been able to buy one online or from your favorite retailer each time they get a small shipment, you may feel like giving up. But there's new hope! You might finally be able to get a Switch of your own… before the end of 2017, that is.

Watch ‘Terminator 2’ recreated entirely with Grand Theft Auto V

We've seen bits and pieces of movies created in other mediums, everything from pieced-together scenes from other movies to ones recreated with LEGOs, clay, animation, and more. This newly surfaced video from 'Kramer's Media' may trump them all, though, if for no other reason than its creator's sheer determination and willingness to follow through on a project: the entirety of Terminator 2 made in Grand Theft Auto V.

In Monster Hunter XX, Nintendo Switch gets the Capcom title it deserves

Capcom has already thrown some support behind the Nintendo Switch in releasing Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (out today, as luck would have it), but it just ramped up support for the console in a big way. Capcom revealed today that a new Monster Hunter game - Monster Hunter XX - will make its way to Nintendo's newest console. Details are still slim at this point, but we should find out more rather quickly.

Far Cry 5 trailer released, remixed with Trump [UPDATE]

Far Cry 5 trailer released, remixed with Trump [UPDATE]

Today the first big trailer for the game Far Cry 5 shows the true nature of evil in a cult in middle America. Instead of heading to some far-off jungle, as the American Hero-based game series Far Cry generally does, this edition of the game heads to the heartland. This game is set in Montana where "your arrival incites the cult to violently seize control of the region," - and you need to "rise up and spark the fires of resistance to liberate a besieged community." This game doesn't aim at Trump supporters directly - and doesn't say so in plain English, but the clues are there.

Three months with the Nintendo Switch

Three months with the Nintendo Switch

It's been nearly three months since the Nintendo Switch launched. Those three months have been filled with a lot of excitement, from the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to the revelation that the Switch actually sold really well on release. I've had a Switch of my own this entire time and I penned the SlashGear's review of the device, giving it a 7/10. Now that we've had a few months to let things simmer, has anything about my opinion changed?

Hori Nintendo Switch controllers have some interesting quirks

Hori Nintendo Switch controllers have some interesting quirks

While Nintendo itself provides all everything you need for a complete Nintendo Switch experience, including two Joy-cons and an optional traditional controller, some gamers will always want more. That is why the third-party accessory and peripheral market will never run out of business. Plus, they can also innovate and go places where Nintendo won't itself go. Take for example the famed accessory maker Hori, who is making two controllers specifically for the Nintendo Switch. One is an extremely traditional but odd gamepad while the other is an even more old-school arcade board.

Nintendo Switch is getting two huge releases this week

Most weeks between now and the launch of ARMS and Splatoon 2 this summer might be a little light for the Nintendo Switch, but not this one. This week, the Switch will be getting two games that have been advertised since well before launch. These aren't just a couple of indie games either, but rather new releases from long-running franchises.

See the HTC Link, a semi-secret Japanese VR headset with LIGHTS

The headset that's appeared today, made by HTC, won't necessarily be available to everyone in the world. In fact it's slated - for now - to be available only inside Japan. This headset was designed to fit one smartphone in the world - the HTC U11 - and will be able to roll with 6DOF (6 degrees of freedom) which is intense for a phone-based VR headset, if not entirely unique to this one.

Beam rebrands to Mixer as Microsoft introduces co-streaming

Beam rebrands to Mixer as Microsoft introduces co-streaming

Well that was fast: even though streaming service Beam was integrated into Xbox One and Windows 10 just a couple of months ago, it's already getting rebranded. Microsoft revealed the new name today as Mixer, introducing a handful of new features to go along with this relaunch of sorts. Aside from the name change, it doesn't seem like any drastic changes are being made to the way the service operates, which will be encouraging to folks who have already bought into the platform.

Magikarp Jump app is super quick fun [iPhone / APK download]

Google Play as well as Apple's App Store now have the next Pokemon game Magikarp Jump. This game is very likely the most inane Pokemon game in the history of Pokemon games - and not only on the mobile platform. This is the latest effort by The Pokemon Company to cash in on the Pokmon craze created in part by Niantic's release of Pokemon GO. This game is not the same as Pokemon GO, but it has just about as many Magikarp inside.
