Article A Slightly Delayed Review of SplaTWOon (Splatoon 2) and Why it's AMAZING!
FOREWORD: In this article, I talk about things that you might already know. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PLAYED SPLATOON 1 and know a decent amount of information, please read the introduction and skip until past the dotted line. Thank you!!

So you may have noticed how hyped the Nintendo community was about Splatoon 2. I was among one of those people. Now that the game has actually released, I'm happy to say that it's well worth buying. In this piece of writing, I'll explain why.

To get something off my chest and out of the way, I'm going to call this game SplaTWOon. Why? Because, dear reader, the pun is RIGHT THERE! Also, it's easier to type.

Splatwoon is the game I've been waiting for. From playing online with your friends to the single player story mode, salmon run, and of course, splatfests.

Starting with the most basic of all the game modes, you can't go wrong with turf war. For those of you living under a rock, turf war is a game mode where, unlike other shooters, your objective is to shoot the ground and paint as much of the battle arena your team's color as possible. The team that inks the most turf in their color wins. This format works really well, and I find myself having TONS of fun here. This time around, they've added a bunch of new weapons, stages, sub - weapons, features, and mechanics to spice up your average turf war and make it just that extra bit more fun. Some might even go far as to say that turf war is the best game mode and the most fun.

Now moving on to ranked mode. Unlocked at level 10, ranked mode includes game modes such as Tower defense, Splat zones and my personal favorite, Rainmaker. Starting with Tower defense here is a very quick run down of all the modes. In tower defense, both teams compete over a tower. once on the tower, it will begin to move towards checkpoint one, two and eventually the enemy base, where you win the game. In splat zones, both teams fight over one zone. If the zone is...
Article Super Mario Odyssey Becomes First Mario Game To Get E10+ Rating
It's me Zarkex (Yes I'm back)

Although Super Mario Odyssey seems to maintain that wholesome charm associated with the mustachioed plumber, it has been given an E10+ rating by the ESRB. It isn’t shockingly high, but it is the first mainline Super Mario game to earn this rating. It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what could have led to this higher rating, but the ESRB usually releases a more detailed summary before a game’s release.

Article Splatoon 2 adding 'Dual Squelcher" As New Weapon Tonight!
At 8 PM (Mountain) tonight, Nintendo will add a new weapon to Splatoon 2, the Dual Squelcher! The Squelcher has already become one of my favorite weapons for it's power, range, and rate of fire adding a second one is going to make me even more deadly! The sub will be a point sensor and the special is "super missile" (whatever that is, tenta missiles maybe?)
Article Nintendo Switch Online app is out

The Nintendo Switch Online app is available for iOS and Android devices.

The app is currently compatible with the Splatoon 2 game, giving players the ability to access SplatNet 2, invite friends to online matches, and voice chat during various game modes. Both the app's functionality and online play are free, where available, until the Nintendo Switch Online service launches in 2018.

With the app and the Splatoon 2 game, you can access SplatNet 2 to see your online play stats, check out upcoming game stages, and more.

You can also invite friends who have the game to Private Battles, League Battles, Salmon Runs, and Splatfest Battles via social media and other services. When players are invited to a game, they'll get an instant notification on their smart device.

The app lets you chat with friends in your Splatoon2 online lobby and then talk to your teammates to coordinate strategy during the online match.

Article Controller Grip for Nintendo Switch Review
Since the Nintendo Switch released, I’ve wanted to get some grips for the Joy-Cons. Single Joy-Con Play is awesome for the games that support it, like Fast RMX and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but unless you have small hands, it can feel a little cramped with the sort of lightning reflexes needed for racing games.

Without the access to the Racing Wheels that Nintendo released, I hunted on Amazon for some reasonably-priced grips made for Single Joy-Con Play. What I found was a product that I’d seen mixed reactions to, by a company called YAOSTE.

After nearly 3 days of waiting for the shipped product to arrive, here is my review of the Control Grip for Switch!

The Grips, themselves, has a typical controller shape. The outside has the normal hand-holders on the bottoms, like PlayStation Controllers and curve up to the triggers. The top has two clickable triggers for the L and R buttons, along with a clear rectangle between them to let you see the battery-level lights between each Joy-Con’s triggers.

The design is pretty simple and actually looks pretty slick. It looks just like a tiny controller and the Joy-Con looks pretty nice when you have them in it. Although the Neon colors do look a bit contrast to the black color of the grip, the Black Joy-Cons would actually look pretty great in it.

The only issue I have, are the SR and SL buttons. They are large and set nicely, however, you have to push at the most inner area to get a proper button press. I think that is just the nature of the Joy-Con given how small the SL and SR buttons are and their location.

I was hoping these shoulder buttons would feel more like actual ones, and they do, but you still have to press down the sweet spot.

All in all, I would highly recommend these. They make the Joy-Cons much more functional. I have played many races in Mario Kart 8 and have had no issues with the overall comfort.

I will also mention how tight the joy-con fits in the holder. It does not snap...
The Master Trials are only HOURS AWAY!!!
The Legend of Zelda Breath Of The Wild Master Trials DLC is released TONIGHT!!! The Switch and Wii U game's DLC is almost here!!!!

The first downloadable content for The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is now just hours away!!!! The Master Trails is stated to launch tomorrow, June 30th, but it'll actually arrive on the eSshop a bit sooner, depending on where you live...

A Nintendo spokesperson has confirmed that The Master Trials will be released tonight at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET, at least in the United States (and maybe Canada). That means a good portion of the country won't have to wait until it's actually Friday to start playing!!!!!!! But having to wait a couple of extra hours is okay! :)

The Master Trials will be available for both the Switch and Wii U versions of Breath of the Wild :)! Its most significant addition is the Trial of the Sword!!! A 45-ROOM challenge that powers up the Master Sword (Making the sword glow infinitly)!!!!!! It also introduces a harder difficulty mode (kinda like Master Quest right), an item that allows you to create a fast-travel point anywhere (kinda like Faroe's Wind right), a system that tracks where you've been, new outfits (tingle.....), and more! :)

You can read more on the Master Trials on another thread posted specifically regarding this subject!
Ya sadly I forgot who posted that thread ): but the thread is out there:)!
But for now here is what I KNOW the DLC includes:
Tingle suit which gives you a speed boost at night time, Phantom suit, Majora's Mask, and everything else listed above! Now please note the Master Trials include WAY more than just this so make sure you purchase the DLC!

This DLC costs I believe $20 or so but is worth every penny!!!!

Are you excited for the DLC?
Have you already purchased it?
