    Law Firm Investigating Grounds for 'Joy-Con Drift' Class-Action Lawsuit

    There's a lawsuit a brewin'.

    A law firm in the States are apparently getting ready to file a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo. The potential lawsuit stems from the growing anger over "Joy-Con drift" issues that have plagued the Nintendo Switch controllers since launch.

    If you don't know what Joy-Con drift is, Kotaku actually put up an article about this growing problem just this past week. In short, it's when the Switch detects movement from a stick that the player may not even be touching. For example: If the right stick controls the camera, you may notice...

    Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    No other changes mentioned.

    Nintendo revealed that they are releasing an updated version of their regular Nintendo Switch soon. The only mentioned differences are the improved battery life when compared to the original model of the Switch. That is it. There are no other differences mentioned.

    The good news is that the battery life upgrades are not insignificant. At present, Nintendo says that the current Switch (HAC-001) has between 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life, depending on what you're playing. The new model (HAC-001(-01)) will have 4.5 to 9 hours of battery life....

    Super Mario Maker 2 Doesn't Support Playing with Friends Online

    Nintendo doing Nintendo things again.

    Some new details came out recently for Super Mario Maker 2 that has ruffled more than a few feathers. The earlier trailers for the game showed off what looked like cooperative gameplay as both Mario and Luigi made their way through a variety of custom made levels.

    Naturally, fans had expected that you and a friend would be able to tackle these custom Mario levels together online. Or, at the very least, you and a friend would be able to go head-to-head in a competitive race. "Not so fast," says Nintendo! According to the...

    Nintendo Switch Getting Labo VR Kit in April


    The cardboard industry is about to get another big boom in April. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit for the Nintendo Switch this week. It's slated to hit stores on April 12 and includes a basic kit, a big kit, and two optional expansions.

    Nintendo Announced Pokemon Sword and Shield for Switch


    Worry not Pokemon Trainers, I didn't forget about your news today! I almost did, but that's besides the point.

    Earlier today Nintendo announced Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, both for the Nintendo Switch. These games officially kick off generation eight for the long-running and still very popular franchise. These two games will be released this Fall and are (apparently) the first mainline titles to appear on a home console. Though I suppose you could technically spin it to say that the Switch is still a portable, but I'm not about to dive into that rabbit hole.

    Rumor Suggests Forza, Halo, or Gears of War is Coming to Nintendo Switch

    It is also being suggested that Rare titles could find their way to the Nintendo Switch. Perhaps Rare Replay? So far, this is all just rumor and may not...

    You Spent Over $43 Billion on Video Games in 2018

This figure is for both software and hardware. It also does not take into account digital sales since the NPD cannot reliably track digital sales figures.

    The best selling title of the year was Red Dead Redemption 2. The second and third best selling titles in 2018 were Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and NBA 2K19 respectively.

    Though the best offering from Nintendo came in at the...
