Pokémon has proven to b a wildly popular franchise for Nintendo, and Pokémon Go certainly continued that craze. The series is so popular that it is now being used to lure geeks to get checked for STDs.
It looks like Sony’s PS4 version 4.50 update is almost here. It is a big upgrade that will arrive on March 9th, and it will include Boost Mode for PS4 Pro owners. You can enable it and some legacy titles will run faster without needing a patch.
There are some things that can only happen in Japan, and this is one of them. A Korean tourist rented out a replica Mario Kart that you can actually drive on the streets around Tokyo. The catch is that the tourist clearly hasn’t learned how to drive on the road in one.
As you may or may not know, the Nintendo Switch’s Pro Controller is partially translucent, so you can look inside the guts of the accessory and see cool stuff. But there are some secrets within that are still hard to spot.
Litter sucks. It makes cities look ugly, and can be a public health hazard. Sometimes bins overflow, sometimes they’re hard to find, and sometimes people just don’t care what they do with their trash. Whatever the reason, litter sucks.
I’m a sucker for old video game box art. My favorite systems when it comes to art were the Atari 2600 and the Nintendo Entertainment System. Back in those days they were able to sell the hell out of a game based on the box art alone.
If you pre-ordered a Nintendo Switch game console, good on you. Though unless you’re having it shipped to your front doorstep, you’ll will still have to stand in line to get one. If you didn’t pre-order, but want to get your mitts on a Switch you may be able to on launch day.

Last week we talked a bit about the video that leaked showing some of the menus and UI of the Nintendo Switch console. That leak was by a dude called “hiphoptherobot,” who said of how he got his hands on the console, “It isn’t like I grabbed it off the back of a truck or anything, I just happened to get lucky because unnamed store decided to ship early for whatever reason.”
It will be another couple of weeks before the Nintendo Switch officially starts shipping, but it looks like at least one lucky gamer already got the console/handheld hybrid in hand. Could be a shipping mistake or a hoax, so take it with a grain of salt.
Any time someone puts an “H” in front of “what” you know things are getting serious. A hack for the NES Classic Edition gaming system that puts RetroArch on board is certainly serious business for retro gamers.
