Despite Switch Joy-Con complaints, Nintendo downplays problems

By Nintendo's own metrics, the Switch seems to be off to a solid start. However, that doesn't appear to be the case for some folks who picked it up on launch day, as we've been hearing reports of a variety of problems for the last week. Chief among these complains are claims that the Joy-Con controllers are experiencing connectivity issues, something that was documented even before the Switch launched.

Pokemon GO update: Tier List for Gym Defenders and Attackers

This afternoon as we're moving past the latest Pokemon GO update, we've compiled a couple of lists. The first list shows the best Pokemon in the game for defending a Pokemon Gym.

Pokemon GO’s Eevee evolution update and future news

Pokemon GO’s Eevee evolution update and future news

Now that Gen 2 of Pokemon GO has been released, Eevee is no longer the star of the game. Or at least that would be true if Gen 2 didn't include two more Eevee evolutions in Espeon and Umbreon - but there we have it. While more powerful Pokemon exist, and easier-to-catch Pokemon exist, there's no more pervasive Pokemon base and evolution combo that's better captured the imagination of the masses that play Pokemon GO. Part of the reason why is in the seemingly random (but not actually random) nature of Eevee's evolutionary forms.

I said Nintendo should quit consoles: Can Switch change my mind?

I said Nintendo should quit consoles: Can Switch change my mind?

Way back in September, when the Nintendo Switch was still known as the NX and we had no idea what Nintendo was plotting, I wrote that the company should call it quits when it comes to consoles. I remembered this article when I was standing in line on the morning of March 3, waiting to pick up my Switch, which had been pre-ordered and paid off since January. The irony of the situation wasn't lost on me, but now that I've got the Switch and I've been playing it constantly for the better part of a week, can it change my mind about Nintendo and its console business?
