Eurogamer reports that the production will have up to 51 performers—actors, dancers, and acrobats—on the stage at a time, while a full orchestra provides the music.  The Google-translated announcement says it’s the first …

Will the Nintendo Switch gold rush affect indie games on PC?

In just seven months, Nintendo has sold more than 7.5 million Switch consoles, half what the Wii U sold in its entire lifetime. It’s been flying off the shelves and so have Nintendo’s big games.

Remapping Destiny 2’s PC Controls Can Make A Big Difference

Destiny has long had one of the best first-person shooter control schemes on consoles. On PC, getting there requires a little more work.
