Nintendo Switch First Impressions: The Console Hybrid That Finally Clicks

The Nintendo Switch has finally been officially revealed and with only 6 weeks until the official worldwide launch it is time to be the first to test their new hardware and launch window lineup.

The Adventure Pals Hands on: Having a Giraffe

Screencheat Review: Cheaters Prosper

If you grew up video gaming in the 90s then you should be familiar with the split-screen, multiplayer shooter and the caveats that stem from sharing the screen with your opponents. Screencheat turns this experience on its head, embracing what was previously a limitation, by integrating the screen watching of other players into the game as a deliberate gameplay mechanic. What results is an enjoyable multiplayer experience that’s fun in...
