Super Smash Bros Ultimate gets another Nintendo Direct this week

At this point, you'd think that we've heard pretty much all there is to know about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. After all, Nintendo has spent a lot of time talking about the game, from making it the marquee title during its E3 2018 presentation to devoting an entire Nintendo Direct to it back in August. Nintendo, however, is not quite done yet, as it has announced another Direct broadcast dedicated to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

SNES game runs Slack because why not

SNES game runs Slack because why not

The SNES, or Super Famicom in Japan, is one of the best loved classic consoles. Naturally, it is the most hacked, too, along with its older sibling the NES/Famicom. Almost everything imaginable has been done with these consoles despite their hardware limitations, including streaming Netflix.

Super Mario Party review: Phone a friend

Super Mario Party review: Phone a friend

I have to admit, I have a strange history with the Mario Party series. I’ve been playing since the very first game launched on the N64 back in 1998, and while I’ve always been entertained by them, there’s always been this voice at the back of my head saying “you know this probably isn’t very good, right?” Still, I would play them, and I never really listened to that voice until Mario Party 9 rolled around. In that game, Nintendo decided that having everyone move around the game board individually wasn’t a good idea and plopped them all in a car that meant they’d be stuck side-by-side for the entire match. Why? I don’t know. Reasons, I guess.
