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. After all, we knew that was the case from the moment the announcement trailer landed and introduced us to New Donk City, which is full of seemingly average looking humans.

Pokemon GO Halloween event: The real dark business

Pokemon GO Halloween event: The real dark business

The Pokemon GO Halloween event was confirmed - in part - by the Pokemon company itself earlier this week.

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.
