Nintendo sent out the following


REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 20, 2016 – In an introductory video released today (, Nintendo provided the first glimpse of its new home gaming system and revealed that it is called Nintendo Switch. In addition to providing single and multiplayer thrills at home, the Nintendo Switch system also enables gamers to play the same title wherever, whenever and with whomever they choose. The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

At home, Nintendo Switch rests in the Nintendo Switch Dock that connects the system to the TV and lets you play with family and friends in the comfort of your living room. By simply lifting Nintendo Switch from the dock, the system will instantly transition to portable mode, and the same great gaming experience that was being enjoyed at home now travels with you. The portability of Nintendo Switch is enhanced by its bright high-definition display. It brings the full home gaming system experience with you to the park, on an airplane, in a car, or to a friend’s apartment.

Gaming springs into action by removing detachable Joy-Con controllers from either side of Nintendo Switch. One player can use a Joy-Con controller in each hand; two players can each take one; or multiple Joy-Con can be employed by numerous people for a variety of gameplay options. They can easily click back into place or be slipped into a Joy-Con Grip accessory, mirroring a more traditional controller. Or, if preferred, the gamer can select an optional Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to use instead of the Joy-Con controllers. Furthermore, it is possible for numerous people to bring their Nintendo Switch systems together to enjoy local multiplayer face-to-face competition.

“Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like,” said Reggie Fils-Aime, President and COO, Nintendo of America. “It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without boundaries.”

Developers can design their games supporting a variety of play styles, which gives gamers the freedom to choose an experience that best suits them. Some of the publishers, developers and middleware partners announcing support for Nintendo Switch are as follows:
505 Games
Activision Publishing, Inc.
Audiokinetic Inc.
Autodesk, Inc.
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc.
CRI Middleware Co., Ltd.
DeNA Co., Ltd.

River City Ransom is an undisputed NES classic, and it seems the game just keeps on giving. A new developer password has been found decades after the initial release.

In the series “Cracking Videogame Passwords”  Bisqwit found a new password for the game that had gone unknown for years.





The code grants you max stats, and all technique books but also changes player 1’s name to Shin.This password uses the space character and is the only real password to do so.

You can see the video below where this was found

No Gravatarsoul-axiom

I was a big fan of Master Reboot, a previous game by Wales Interactive on the Wii U ( among other systems). It was a good game, if a little flawed. Soul Axiom is a spiritual sequel of sorts to that game.

Soul Axiom is one of the more…unique games available. I can’t quite compare it to anything else on the eshop, and that isn’t a bad thing. The game has its high points and its low points and the two are neck in neck. Soul Axiom is a first person exploration game of sorts but I am not sure what to compare it to besides Master Reboot, and even that is slightly different.

Soul Axiom has quite a few technical issues on Wii U. The framerate stutters a rather large amount of time and the graphics seem to be vastly downgraded comparted to the PC version of the game. The textures are a mess in quite a few areas and worst of all, there are some serious control interface issues with the game. While Master Reboot had some issues with slowdown and bugs at occasions, Soul Axiom has a lot more of them and a lot more frequently. I hope a patch can come soon for the game to fix it because as it is, this is not a pleasant gaming experience.

Everything else about the game just feels very bland. The music is bland, the story is bland. Even the working gameplay mechanics just feel bland and like it takes too l0ng to get moving. I cannot recommend Soul Axiom as is, but I am willing to take a look again if a patch comes out in the future. For now, stick to Master Reboot and let this one go.

No GravatarbgeAfter all the teasing and hinting, Ubisoft has confirmed that a new BG&E game is in development

If you’ve been waiting for news about BG&E… well, here you go! We are delighted to confirm that Michel Ancel is currently working with the Ubisoft Montpellier Studio on a new Beyond Good & Evil game.


No platforms are listed yet and no doubt we will have to wait a while to see the game, but it is nice to know the game is coming and what team is developing it.


No Gravatarbloodstained1

Koji Igarashi recently had an interview with IGN wherein he discussed among other things, that the Wii U version of the game may not happen. The game is coming out in 2018 and the Wii U will be pretty much done by 2017, and given that the Wii U version is being done externally as well due to the engine not being fully compatible, it might not be worth it to continue. That said, he may have implied the game’s port for Nintendo might be moved from the Wii U to the upcoming NX.

“Yeah, it’s a very complicated problem. The reality is this: As timelines move on, certain pieces of hardware become irrelevant. Sometimes new pieces of hardware come out that make you think about what is the right strategy. And as a creator, usually you want to make stuff for the new hardware. That’s the reality.”

“However, this was a game that was backed by people, and we made promises to listen to them. They’re the people that gave us life so to speak. Any sort of change that we do or are considering that goes outside the scope of the promises we’ve made must be done with lots of explanation, must be done with lots of care, and must be done with lots of back and forth with them to see what options we have. We must listen to them at the end of the day, and we have made promises.”

“Unfortunately, some of those don’t make as much sense anymore as they did before, and that’s also reality. So you’re in a very difficult position, and at the end of the day, if you’re going to go in one certain direction, you want to make sure that you have support from them.”

“But so far we’ve, I think, been incredibly transparent through all the things that have happened with our backers, and they have been very supportive. So I’m hoping that if there is going to be a difficult decision some day, and we don’t know, that we’re able to have that conversation. If they say they don’t get it, well that’s where we’re at. And if they say they do get it, well then, we’ll be able to do things that are maybe more interesting. We’ll see.


This wouldn’t be a bad thing necessarily as most Nintendo gamers will have moved on to the NX and the NX will most likely be able to natively run unreal engine 4, thereby making an NX port inherently superior to a Wii U port. I backed the game on kickstarter and would love an NX version.
