Earlier today, Nintendo pushed an update to Switch consoles that added a few long-requested features. Switch owners now have the ability to move their game data and saves to another console and they can also now record video clips of their gameplay. Though neither feature is perfect just yet, it's definitely a step in the right direction for the Switch, which was certainly feature-poor on launch.

Super Mario Odyssey has a new live-action trailer, because why not?

By now, there shouldn't be a doubt in anyone's mind that Super Mario Odyssey is going to be at least a little weird.

Stardew Valley first play: A wonderful fit for Nintendo Switch

Up until today, I didn't have any interest in playing Stardew Valley on a console. A PC version die-hard since launch day, the console release of Stardew Valley was something that never appealed to me. I thought keyboard and mouse was the best control method for a game like Stardew Valley, and even though I still believe that, I have to admit that surprised by the time I've spent with the Nintendo Switch version.
