This Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme version is a lot more fun

The COVID-19 pandemic has many of us working from home and doing a lot of things we normally do remotely. We've seen quite a few remote collaboration videos born from the pandemic and the need to stay home, and now it seems that even the musicians behind Animal Crossing: New Horizons are hopping aboard that particular train. Earlier today, Nintendo published a video featuring Animal Crossing musicians performing New Horizon's theme song remotely, and though it's a short video, it's well worth watching if you're a fan of the game.

Nintendo Switch Online now boasts 82 NES and SNES games

Nintendo Switch Online now boasts 82 NES and SNES games

Despite how gaming advocates push for the image of games as more than just pointless pastimes, the gaming industry as a whole has been terrible at recording and keeping its own history (ironic given its use of save game systems). This threatens to deprive future generations of the fun and sometimes ludicrous games of the past and, hopefully, learn from those. Fortunately, console makers have started bringing their old titles back to life and none of the current big three has a history more vibrant and varied than Nintendo as evidenced by the more than 80 classic titles now available on the Nintendo Switch.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades gets a surprise release on Nintendo Switch

The Switch release comes just a couple of days after the full version launched on iOS and Android.

Paper Mario is coming to Switch – Why I’m excited

Paper Mario is coming to Switch – Why I’m excited

Out of nowhere this morning, Nintendo announced a new Paper Mario game for the Nintendo Switch. Dubbed Paper Mario: The Origami King, perhaps the existence of this game shouldn't be a complete surprise. After all, 2020 marks Mario's 35th anniversary, and rumors have claimed that Nintendo is looking to pull out all of the stops in celebration, including launching a new Paper Mario game.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons comes to Tetris 99 this weekend

Over the past couple of months, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has become one of the most popular Switch games of all time. It should be little surprise, then, to see Nintendo announce a new crossover for Tetris 99 that features Animal Crossing: New Horizons. More specifically, New Horizons will be the focus of the 13th Maximus Cup, which is set to kick off later this week.

Nintendo Switch supply in trouble

Nintendo Switch supply in trouble

How, in a time when the Nintendo Switch sold better than ever, could Nintendo find themselves in a position where they can't make more? For Nintendo, the COVID-19 pandemic's been a double-edged sword. While quarantine life around the world's provided at-home gamers a reason to own and use a Nintendo Switch, the same quarantine's made it difficult to produce enough supply to meet demand. Today reports from Malaysia and the Philippines suggest the bottleneck's gotten worse.

Civilization VI New Frontier Pass promises a year of new content

Civilization VI New Frontier Pass promises a year of new content

Civilization VI is turning four years old in October, and after two expansions and a number of scenario packs, you'd be forgiven if you figured that Firaxis was done with the game and had moved on to working on Civilization VII. While Firaxis could very well be working on next Civilization game, it turns out the company isn't quite done making new content for Civilization VI yet, today announcing the New Frontier Pass.

Conquering the Backlog Part 2: Journey, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Just Shapes and Beats

Conquering the Backlog Part 2: Journey, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Just Shapes and Beats

Last week, I kicked off a new series called "Conquering the Backlog," in which I decided - in the middle of the year, no less - to finally begin sticking to my New Year's resolution of working my way through my backlog of games. Like many of you, I have a deep, ever-growing backlog, particularly on PC, and the rate at which I was completing these games was vastly outpaced by the rate at which I was acquiring new ones. We have World of Warcraft Classic to thank for that, and WoW Classic ruining my plans is going to be a running theme throughout this entire series.

Next Nintendo Switch could be powered by Samsung Exynos, AMD RDNA

Next Nintendo Switch could be powered by Samsung Exynos, AMD RDNA

The Nintendo Switch has quickly become one of the most popular consoles in just three years but it probably isn't because of its raw power. Of the three big gaming consoles, the Switch can easily be singled out as the weakest and that might not be changing drastically even with a Nintendo Switch 2. It may, however, finally ditch the aging NVIDIA Tegra X1 for something that comes from the fruit of Samsung's and AMD's recent partnership.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons gets Valentino, Marc Jacobs fashion clothing

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is quickly becoming an outlet of creativity and even artistic expression thanks to its rather ingenious system for adding images or new items to the game. Just recently, the Getty Art Museum used that system to let players put historical art pieces into, well, digital art pieces. Now fashion designers are also getting into the game, this time with masterpieces you can wear to show off your fashion sense.

Conquering the Backlog Part 1: Gaming my way through quarantine

Conquering the Backlog Part 1: Gaming my way through quarantine

Today is the first day of May, which means that 2020 is officially a third of the way over. It's hard to believe, given all that's happened this year, that we're only four months into 2020. It's a good time to look back at those New Year's resolutions and take stock of your progress, but unfortunately for me, my progress on one of my resolutions has been absolutely abysmal.
