Best Buy has a tempting Nintendo Switch bundle deal for a short time

Since the Switch is still a relatively new console that's selling well, we haven't seen very many discounts on it. The ones we do see usually come in the form of some sort of bundle deal, which might stick you with accessories or games you don't really want. Best Buy has a new bundle deal of its own on offer currently, but this time around, you get to pick the game it comes with.

It is one of the few and perhaps the most notable racing game that makes any aspect, including losing, just as fun as winning. But unlike common racing games, its appeal is also dependent not on generic vehicles but memorable characters. The latest update to the latest version of Mario Kart adds Link to that roster. But who are we kidding, we’re really after the Master Cycle Zero.

Nintendo Switch is getting two more Wii U ports

The Nintendo Switch had an excellent 2017, which was driven in part by Nintendo's focus on putting a bunch of first-party franchises on the console early. Part of the way Nintendo achieved this was by porting games from the Wii U over to the Switch, as it did with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Pokken Tournament DX. We learned today that Nintendo is going to continue this trend of porting old Wii U games over to the Switch, as it announced two more games today during its Direct Mini broadcast.

The Best Games of 2017

The Best Games of 2017

While 2017 was a rough year in many regards, it was one of the best for gaming. This past year was packed with so many excellent releases that making a list of the best could very well turn out to be a losing proposition. I’m going to try, though I should mention that these are my favorites of the year - this list was not determined by committee, nor will it be ranked. Since this is a list of my personal favorites, I’ll obviously only be discussing games that I’ve played. Therefore, if you don’t see your favorite game of the year, don’t necessarily take it to mean that it isn’t good. Let’s dig in!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild expansion rolls out with Link on a bike

Zelda: Breath of the Wild expansion rolls out with Link on a bike

Japanese-made RPGs are often fluid in terms of their settings. Fantasy isn’t always fantasy and you’re likely to see some automatons mixed with wands and potions. So when Link starts a motorbike across mountains and rustic terrain, it all feels natural. In fact, it feels fantastic! That is practically the general reaction to the last few seconds of the trailer that introduced The Champions’ Ballad, the second and newest expansion to the breath-taking The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Sheikah Switch makes you feel like Link using a Sheikah Slate

This Nintendo Switch mod gives you a taste of inception by making you feel like Link holding a Sheikah Slate to control Link holding a Sheikah Slate. Convoluted, confusing, and absolutely wonderful? Definitely! And expensive too. But if you're a die-hard Zelda fan and collector, this latest MakoMod creation will be too good to pass up.
