Nyko’s Nintendo Switch Power Pak gives it more power … and more pounds

The conversation about the Switch’s battery life was a lot louder before the system launched in March. When Nintendo announced that the Switch would typically last 2.5-to-6 hours on one battery charge, people freaked out because that seemed short. Now that everyone has a Switch, you don’t really read or hear many people criticizing the system’s power efficiency.

Tumblestone Review – Switch eShop

The puzzle genre can be very hit-and-miss, particularly on dedicated gaming consoles where players tend to expect a higher level of polish and quality than most mobile games are able to achieve.

Metal Slug X Review – Switch eShop / Neo Geo

It remains to be seen how many Neo Geo titles HAMSTER will ultimately bring to the Switch, but there’s been no sign of the publisher slowing down in recent times. This has ensured that a good range of titles are available, but it has resulted in some that are surplus to requirements.
