Nintendo Switch just hit its most impressive milestone yet

At this point, you probably don't need me to tell you that the Switch is selling well.

Super Mario 64 has earned its spot as one of the most beloved games of all time, so the healthy modding community that has grown around it over the past 20 years shouldn't come as much of a shock.

Nintendo Switch “Golf” tribute to Iwata is now gone

It wasn’t meant to last. It was probably never meant to be there in the first place. Fact is, we’ll never know of if the super hidden “Golf” emulation in the Nintendo Switch was something Nintendo planned on as an Easter egg or if someone snuck it in without the company noticing it.

This SNES Classic wireless gamepad brings back the TURBO button

With an excellent library and a pretty decent price point, the SNES Classic Edition definitely has a lot going for it. Absent from that list of great things are suitably long controller cables, which was also a problem with its NES-flavored predecessor.
