    The Nintendo Switch can handle Doom with all its blood and guts

    Nintendo announced last week that Bethesda is bringing its popular shooter games like Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to the Switch hybrid handheld and home game console. That’s a big departure for both companies, as mature-rated titles haven’t been a staple of Nintendo consoles. I went to a preview event and played the beginning of Doom on the Switch. I used a game controller to control the action, and watched it unfold on the Switch’s 6.2-inch screen. You can also plug it into a TV and watch it in 720p resolution on a TV.

    'Doom’ for the Nintendo Switch feels exactly like it’s supposed to

    When Nintendo announced the launch of the Switch by using footage from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, it was a surprise -- but a reasonable one. Bethesda's open-world adventure game was beloved, but old enough that a port to Nintendo's new console seemed entirely reasonable. When the company announced that it was bringing the upcoming Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and last year's Doom reboot to the Nintendo Switch, however, it gave us pause.

    Nintendo hid a copy of the NES game 'Golf' on every Switch

    In the long history of weird Nintendo moments, this one stands out. Tucked away deep within the Nintendo Switch operating system is the data for an NES original, Golf. It's playable by one or two players using Switch Joy-Cons and it even appears to support motion controls... or it would, if anyone knew how to unlock it.

    'Travis Strikes Again' puts 15 indie titles in one Suda51 game

    Nintendo went all out this week showcasing a slew of high-profile games heading to the Switch, 3DS and 2DS -- titles like Doom, Wolfenstein II and Pokemon Gold. But, just last month, Nintendo was all about indie love. That's when the company and renowned ultra-violent game director Goichi "Suda51" Suda revealed Travis Strikes Again, the third title in the No More Heroes series. And, this time around, he's brought 15 indie video game creators along for the ride.

    How Switch is Fixing Nintendo's Third-Party Problem

    Nintendo’s biggest announcement during its latest Direct didn’t go by unnoticed. Two major current-gen PC and console first-person shooters, Doom and Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, will be making their way to Nintendo Switch. But they represent much more than a chance to fill out the Switch’s library with a genre unrepresented on the system so far.

    Nintendo is having an amazing year

    In March, Nintendo released quite possibly the best entry yet in its revered Legend of Zelda series. This week, the iconic Metroid returns with an excellent new title on the 3DS, while an inventive new Super Mario is coming in October. That’s three of the company’s biggest franchises, all in the same year. (Oh, and Nintendo also released a brilliant new piece of hardware with the Switch console / tablet as well.)

    How to Make Your In-Game Chores Satisfying

You ignore the chores, boot up your computer, and start playing Stardew Valley.

    Peace, Property and Profits: Thoughts on Community Inc

    The state of the video game industry is such that games are more often bought based upon their underlying concept than their actual execution of said concept- it's why we have so many disappointments in Steam Early Access right now, but it's also how some really interesting and innovative indie games have found their audiences. If you have a cool idea for a game and the talent to show it off- through a flashy trailer, perhaps, that demonstrates your concept, you're halfway to selling the game. I feel that this must be said outright: Community Inc is not finished.

    How the Shutdown of Miiverse Puts Nintendo Behind Microsoft and Sony

    Nintendo's reputation, by and large, precedes it. Nintendo is the company that made console gaming cool again in the United States in the wake of the industry crash that turned Atari upside down- Nintendo is the company that brought gaming to the masses through the Wii, then somehow squandered their incredible mainstream cultural impact. It doesn't matter what game console you buy- your parents are going to call it the Nintendo- that's the impact that they've had on the industry. Within the gaming community, Nintendo is beloved, but often pitied because as a company, it seems doomed to repeat embarrassing mistakes.

A number of retailers were listing Batman: The Enemy Within, which is the second season Telltale started just recently. An Amazon listing offers clarity about what’s going on here. Rather than The Enemy Within, Switch will be getting all five episodes from the first season instead.

    Skyrim on Switch is Everything You Hoped it Would Be

    Nintendo’s behind-closed-doors appointments at PAX West always happen in the same tiny room. Well above the bustling show floor, down a very clinical hallway, tucked behind a door that simply reads “Nintendo”, we get to spend about an hour here each year, and get a sneak peak at the Nintendo games that are just over the horizon. This year, we waited in that beige hallway for an extra 10 minutes before we were allowed entry. Our Nintendo rep opened the door just enough to pop his head out.

    The Pokémon Company Celebrates 19-Year Anniversary

    This year may be the year of Kirby according to the last Nintendo Direct, but I have an inkling which franchise will be in the spotlight next year. The Pokémon Company was founded on 23 April 1998, making this week its 19th anniversary. Contrary to popular belief, the Pokémon Company isn’t entirely owned by Nintendo – something that came to light when people realised Nintendo did not make, and made little money directly from insanely popular app Pokémon Go.

    Video Games Are Better Without Stories

    A longstanding dream: Video games will evolve into interactive stories, like the ones that play out fictionally on the Star Trek Holodeck. In this hypothetical future, players could interact with computerized characters as round as those in novels or films, making choices that would influence an ever-evolving plot. It would be like living in a novel, where the player’s actions would have as much of an influence on the story as they might in the real world.

    Xbox chief: we need to create a Netflix of video games

    Something big has happened to the video game industry over the last five years – you may have noticed. All the old rules about consoles – the fact that they enjoyed five-to-eight-year life cycles, the fact that games “just worked” out of the box – they’re all gone. An accelerating consumer electronics sector and the mass penetration of broadband internet have led us into a new era of chaotic innovation and fraught business model evolution. And somewhere in the middle of all this, people are making and playing games. How do those people keep up?

    Video Game Raised $148 Million From Fans. Now It’s Raising Concerns.

    Mark Kearns, 38, a web designer and gamer from Chicago, stumbled upon a new video game called Star Citizen while online in late 2013. The game, which was in development, promised to revive the spaceflight simulation genre with a sprawling universe for players to explore. Intrigued, Mr. Kearns decided to pledge money to see the game come to fruition. In total, he donated $175, which gained him access to Star Citizen’s alpha version — a playable version of the game in its early stages — plus a virtual ship to use in the game.

    Civilization V Is Awful (Thematically)

    Sid Meier’s Civilization V is the perfect game to relax with at the end of a long day. Unfortunately, the game falls flat in the department of theme. To be clear, I’m not talking about the way that Civ V sets things aesthetically- from my own western viewpoint, the game does a good job portraying the character of the world’s leaders and nations within its own scope; even the game’s music is different based on which civilization you pick. Where Civ V fails thematically is in its own gameplay.
