Recently I stumbled upon a fun little video that shows the steps it takes to hack an SNES Classic to add more games to the console. Luckily I found myself with literally nothing to do so time was no concern. I set up shop at my desk with the tutorial on one monitor and the software on the other.
If you aren't already overwhelmed every Thursday when you pop into the Nintendo eShop, your luck may be running out: Nintendo's goal to release 20-30 indie games a week is a lofty one to say the least.
It's hard not to get caught in the hype of new Mario games, especially when the Switch is involved, and especially when sports are involved. Announced during Nintendo's "Direct Mini" in January, the latest installment of Mario Tennis was no exception, boasting "new wrinkles in tennis gameplay" that would challenge players in new ways to deliver exciting moments of tennis tension.

Microsoft’s Xbox E3 press conference this year was notable for including a number of upcoming exclusives, something the XBox has been sorely lacking in recent years. Announcements were made for anticipated titles such as Gears of Wars 5, Devil May Cry 5, Just Cause 4 (insert joke about sequels here), as well as the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 which generated considerable amounts of hype.
