Article NBA 2K18: "all your gigs are belong to me"
NBA 2K18 will be the first game on the Switch that will require an install from the physical cartridge in order to function. According to Nintendo's support site there will be a 16GB download required to play the game. In addition, each save file will require another 5 GB file that must be stored on the internal memory. So even if you buy the physical copy, you will be using approximately 21GB of internal storage (about 28GB if you choose digital purchase). Remember 5GB of that must be on the internal storage for every saved game. That is nearly 20% of your internal storage space!

It appears that 2K is trying to save themselves money by opting for the smallest game cart size Nintendo offers rather than the more expensive to produce 32 GB cart. Is this a sign of things to come? Will we be seeing developers using the smallest cart to save money and sticking the gamer with the cost of downloading a large file and purchasing large SD cards?

Miitopia Review
Ah, Miitopia! It's a GREAT GAME! Hope you enjoyed my review! XD

No don't worry! That's not it!
Here is the REAL THING!

Miitopia was released on July 27 2017 along with the New Nintendo 2DS XL system and Hey Pikmin!

But anyway... the RPG was highly anticipated by many including @Diego7000 himself XD!

This RPG allows "your Tomodachi Life friends" to be cast in an adventure of legends against Good, and EVIL!" They Role play EVERYTHING, from Background Cast, to your team to the Dark Lord himself!
Oh, and to @Fiscus you can do it by clicking the Tomodachi Life option when it tells you to add a Mii! Your save data should pop up and click on it and ya!

(I unlocked everything in 70 hours of gameplay taking my time! Now just need to 100% all badges and get all food and all those achievments!)

That is what I love MOST about the game! You can choose EVERYONE'S ROLE! And be whatever you desire!
Fine I will say words that come into play with the main story line!

Worried Mother, amuelet, powers, Great Sage, fighting, plot, FINAL BOSS, new areas and people

The gameplay is based on turn attacks, the turns are random and they may skip or give extra turns! The fighting is pretty interactive as for you choose YOUR Mii's attacks and you can share and protect and learn New Skills in the midst of battle!
Article A very delayed review of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Hey! It's me, Fiscus! To provide a bit of backstory on why I was so late on covering this game, I have written a review before about the Nintendo Switch itself. I talked a lot about Breath of the Wild there. Then I realized that I had not explained all of the things that I could have, and here we are today. Before we begin, I will be calling this game BotW because it's easier to write, and saves us all some time.

To start off, there will be NO SPOILERS in this review, for the sake of anyone who hasn't been able to buy a Nintendo Switch yet and wants one, or for Wii U owners who haven't had the chance to pick up a copy. HOWEVER, I will assume that you know about the shrines that have been advertised by Nintendo themselves for QUITE SOME TIME.

Now onto the actual review:
BotW is easily one of the best first party Nintendo games since the GameCube era. Some might even say it's the best Zelda game! You can tell that the designers really put a lot of effort in this one. I find myself often exploring just for the sake of exploring, which is definitely something that other Zelda games just didn't do. Every mechanic and I do mean EVERY MECHANIC is designed to not get in the way of exploring. The horse riding and mounted combat are spectacular, the battle mechanics are amazing, the towns, NPCs, and side quests all don't get in the way and feel unique, and the shrines are all fun and challenging.

Everything is optional, so much so that you will find yourself wandering off instead of continuing with the story right away. Trust me. I'm not the type of gamer that strays from the plot, and even I got sidetracked. And the only times where you are doing something that should be mostly linear, you still have some degree of freedom, and nothing in the game feels necessary. Killing monsters is very fun, even guardians. (You will die to guardians A LOT.) Often times, you have various options of how to go about...
Tomodachi Life, My review!
Alrighty where to start off then... Got it!

Tomodachi Life! A game that released April 18, 2013. This game was highly anticipated and even got a Nintendo Select award! The basic meaning of Tomodachi is Friend(s) and it is a game that highly meets it's meaning!
Let's talk gameplay! In gameplay you open up the game to the first time and you choose your game's basic running!

You first, choose an island name

Second, choose your "look alike" (In other words your Mii *Please Note that your islanders will call you that Mii's look alike in speech with you, for example, my islanders always say "Hi Diego7000's look alike!" when I enter there appartment's)

Third, choose an Import Wear item (more about that later...)

And, finally start playing!

After you finish Firstly, Secondly, and Thirdly, you can enjoy some gameplay!

In Tomodachi Life you cast your Miis from your Mii Maker and give them there own little lives where they can fight, make friends, date, break up, marry, and have kids...

But what I love is being able to unlock stuff as you play! There is an Import Wear Shop where you have to connect to t.... I will let you find out how to unlock it by yourself but the Import Wear Shop is Special as for here you by clothing only obtainable for a limited time, or from StreetPassers!
There is a Restaurant? where you can buy Food and drinks!

The Interior Shop where you can buy Appartment Interiors!

Your Miis are people? TOO!!! They have dreams, Likes and dislikes, the previous statement but in people as well..., they will have catchphrases, Musicals.........................., pocket money, donations, and MORE!!!

You play as the mayor of your island and your islanders will want to play with you, get your opinion, and even ask for help with popping the question...

When you give your islanders things (Clothes, Food, Interiors, answers) they will gain EXP... BUT if you give them other things like, help with...
Article Switch Drama: Latest Switch Models have inferior displays?
A lot of users have been reporting that Switch consoles purchased within the past month or two seem to have a slightly darker, warmer and less saturated display than the March release models. Are Nintendo using cheaper components to speed up production? or is this the whole N3DSXL IPS/TN drama all over again. Here are some pictures, please note the brighter/cooler/vibrant Switches happen to be the release models whereas the yellow/warm/darker Switches are systems purchased within the past month or so.

Is this something that would bother you?

Article Brawlout (Smash clone) Comes to Switch Late 2017

Brawlout is a party fighting game that debuted on Steam earlier this year. It’s “designed for couch play, online ranked matches and competitive tournaments.”

Brawlout does away with shields and blocking, focusing heavily on the aggressive, fast-paced combat which has made platform fighters so fun to both play and watch.

Each character in Brawlout has their own unique playstyle, catering to specific character archetypes seen in other fighters. Whether you’re a die-hard grappler or a rushdown fiend, there is a fighter for you in Brawlout.

Combined with familiar movement techniques like wavedashing and airdodging, Brawlout adds some extra mechanics seen in other fighting games. The Rage Meter builds up as you both deal and take damage, allowing you either break combos with the Rage Burst or unleash hell with the Rage Mode. The Rage Burst pushes opponents back, breaking their combos and allowing players to create some breathing room at the cost of half their Rage Meter. If the meter fills, you can activate the Rage Mode, increasing the knockback you deal while reducing the amount you take.

As for modes, Brawlout has all you’d expect from a normal platform fighter and then some. Up to four players can compete in local multiplayer in either timed, stock or team battles. AI opponents are also available if you want to practice your team combos with a friend, or if you need to fill out a free for all.

Brawlout’s online suite is suitably robust, with all of the following features:

– Free-For-All casual matches for low-stress competition
– A robust Ranked match system, complete with regional leaderboards
– 2-4 player private lobbies where players can practice or mess about to their heart’s content
– The Brawlout Network where players can check their fight stats, match history and replays
– Brawlout TV which allows for live spectating and watching of specific player replays
