Review: 'Resident Evil' HD Remastered Solid Port for Nintendo Switch

It's hard to believe the original remake of Capcom's Resident Evil started on the Nintendo Gamecube and now its superior HD version has made its way to the Switch.

A Japanese Auction Features a Wii Remote Prototype for GameCube

Not Even Nintendo Knew About The Gamecube Controller Support On The Switch

Nintendo's latest update to the Nintendo Switch which enabled GameCube controller support appears to have been a simple accident, rather than a clue to anything more.

License To Kill It: Licensed Games That Do It Right

By Jared Cornelius My article about licensing in games actually made me sad.  When I got my thoughts together on the topic, hundreds of titles came to mind that never lived up to their potential.  Good franchises with rich lush history and characters that were forced to languish in subpar titles.  Games that would never […]

Lego Marvel Superheroes – Lego A Little Piece of My Heart

By Jared Cornelius I have never known a child to grow up without Legos, oh sure they might have had Mega Blocks, or Playmobil, but Legos were always king, and every savvy child knew it.  It's been almost 20 years since I've played with Legos and after playing Lego Marvel Super Heroes I'm not sure […]
