Nintendo

  • The upcoming 3DS title Poochy & Yoshi’s Wooly World will run at 30fps on the original 3DS and a silky smooth 60fps on the new 3DS

  • The Switch has a few months until release and we don’t have a games lineup yet, but that hasn’t stopped third party manufacturers from making accessories. EB has a few you can look at here.

  • Pokémon Sun and Moon’s latest legendary. Magearna, is now available.

  • BoxBoy 3 is coming along with an amiibo.

  • If you fancy yourself a bit of a hacker, Nintendo is paying upwards of $20k in bounties for 3DS security vulnerabilities.

  • Sprint and Starbucks both announced a partnership with Niantic to turn their stores into Pokéstops. So yeah, if you’re a frequent to either of those places and still play Pokémon GO for some reason, I guess this announcement may be exciting to you.

Rumors

  • One of the latest Switch rumors claims that when the system is docked, the CPU and GPU run at a higher frequency and a fan in the dock helps to cool the system. I’ve been speculating this from the beginning.

  • Perhaps more interesting is the rumor that Switch will be getting GameCube titles to it’s Virtual Console with games like Super Mario Sunshine, Luigi’s Mansion, and Super Smash Bros Melee kicking things off.

I’m a geek who loves video games, wings, beer, dinosaurs, Star Wars, and technology. My wife and I have a tripod cat, but she’s an asshole. Because she’s a cat.
