We aren’t even into the first sentence of the article, and I know what you are already asking. “Lou, are you kidding me?” Fortnite is a worldwide phenomenon — lightning in a bottle. Any comparison to it must be hyperbolic. And yeah, I usually agree there. But that doesn’t mean Hi-Rez Studios isn’t setting themselves up for a monumental win with Paladins on Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, the ongoing rumor that Paladins would be coming to Nintendo Switch was confirmed by Hi-Rez earlier this week. Long-available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, the hero based shooter has captured the attention of the hero based shooter for three main reasons: it is free to play, it runs surprisingly well, and it dips deep into mechanics found in some of the other leading titles in the field. Sometimes to a fault. Now, here’s where things get interesting. The Nintendo Switch severely lacks solid multiplayer games. Sure, ARMs and Splatoon 2 are great installments … [Read more...] about Paladins for Nintendo Switch Is Gearing Up to Be the Fortnite of Hero Based Shooters

We've had a lot of requests for this over the last few months, and having finally sampled WWE 2K18, we can see why. The Switch port has built up quite a reputation since its release in early December last year - in fact, many believe it's the worst game available for the system.

First impressions suggest not, and out of all the multi-platform Switch titles we've experienced, this is easily the worst port we've tested. And it is indeed a pretty basic port by nature, as opposed to a bespoke project tailored to Nintendo's hardware. WWE 2K18 is a multi-platform release so in assessing the Switch version we felt it was important to put it into context. The standard Xbox One is the next machine up the console power ladder, and in comparing the two, it's fairly clear how the Switch game was nipped and tucked. There … [Read more...] about Is WWE 2K18 really the worst game on Nintendo Switch?
On the first anniversary of the Nintendo Switch, it seems strange to look back at that first reveal video and remember the hubbub of confusion and excitement. Our first look at Ninty’s strange little hybrid pitched it as the coolest piece of kit to bring to a frat party, as something you’d play in the park, as something that would bring people together. I, along with hundreds of other gamers, scratched my head, wondering if the Japanese gaming giant had finally lost its mind by creating a hybrid console; a device that could potentially fall in the gap between console and handheld. However, the brilliance of Switch has burned brighter and brighter throughout the first year of its life, leaving me - and many others - in no doubt about its technical accomplishments or universal appeal. With the Wii U it was clear Nintendo had lost its way. After the success of the Wii, the Wii U was a failure; a cumbersome, awkward and downright weird attempt at a hybrid that made sure gamers … [Read more...] about Nintendo Switch then vs now, how a year can change a console
