Nintendo Community Showcase #1: Mock-ups

 The Nintendo community is a vast collection of many diverse people playing a wide array of games. Due to the fact that a lot of people think Nintendo is just for kids, there's a strong sense of community, and we all look out for each other and support each other. There's a lot of wonderful content being created by those in the community, and I think it's only right to use this platform to showcase it. Our first theme is mock-ups, or tech fan art.

 There's a growing trend that started with the Switch reveal. People love to make their technology their own, and Nintendo fans are no different. All over the internet, people have been sharing their designs for their ideal Nintendo Switch. I'm picking mine from the Nintendo Switch subreddit, but I'm sure there are others out there as well.

 Some people have taken to making their dream Switch consoles look like Nintendo consoles of yesteryear. I really like the two featured above, as they really showcase the bright and vivid colors of Nintendo's past, something that has really been absent lately. Hopefully the Neon Joycon bundle is a sign of that changing.

 Another thing people seem to be taking interest in is consoles made out of other materials, or at least made to look so. I picked the two I featured above as they really look like their intended materials, and are both designs I'd like on my own Switch.

 Fortunately, our dream consoles may soon become a reality. When you preorder a Switch in Japan, you are able to create your own colorful bundle. With some expansion and a global rollout, we may all soon have our dream Switch consoles soon.

 What kind of Switch would you make? Be sure to let me know in the comments!

Fast RMX Review

Fast RMX is a remaster (or a remix) of Fast Racing Neo, a Wii U eShop title. Developed by Shin'en Multimedia, it is the third game in the Nintendo exclusive Fast series that started all the way on WiiWare. The Fast series is somewhat of a spiritual successor to F-Zero, a Nintendo franchise that has been long forgotten by Nintendo itself. If Nintendo won't develop any more games in the series, at least Shin'en is trying...but have their efforts ended up being worth it? Let's dig in.


Fast RMX looks phenomenal, especially considering the hardware it's on. Breath of the Wild is a beautiful game, but it doesn't look real. Fast RMX does. It's crazy to me that we live in a world where $20 games on portable Nintendo hardware look this good. This game is truly breathtaking.

 In some of the levels, there are weather effects. As water, snow, or sand bombard your screen, it's easy to become incredibly immersed in the game's world. One of the key mechanics…

How I Changed My Mind On The Launch Lineup and 1-2 Switch

If we're being honest, the original Nintendo Switch launch lineup was pretty weak. It featured a measly five games, two of which were third party ports that will likely not sell at all. However, in the five weeks since the Nintendo Switch was fully revealed, this lineup has grown. It's grown a lot.

 A lot of games have been added since the initial lineup. The launch that originally consisted of five games is now at least twelve games. I am Setsuna, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove, World of Goo, Little Inferno, Human Resource Machine, Snipperclips, and Fast RMX have all been added to the March 3rd release day.

 The lineup in general has grown exponentially. Reddit user /u/AbsoluteMagnitude has been consistently updating the original lineup picture with every game announcement. The image above is their most recent version of the wallpaper. There are an incredibly large amount of games here, and the numbers just keep climbing.

 Due to the growing launch, I'm a lot more excite…

Why Every Nintendo Fan NEEDS To Buy 1-2 Switch

 1-2 Switch is the only Switch exclusive launch title developed by Nintendo. If that and the fact that it actually looks like a pretty fun time don't sell you, I know what might. When presented with this information, your perception on the necessity of 1-2 Switch very well may change. The reason you should buy this game is because of the Switch itself.

 I'll get to that in a second. First, let's look at the launch of the Nintendo Switch. The games confirmed to be releasing are Breath of the Wild, 1-2 Switch, Just Dance 2017, Skylanders Imaginators, World of Goo, Binding of Isaac, Little Inferno, Super Bomberman R, I Am Setsuna, and Human Resource Machine. While many of these may end up being really good games, they've almost all already been released on other consoles, or will do so simultaneously with the Switch release. The only "made for Switch" games here are Super Bomberman R...and 1-2 Switch.

Super Bomberman R looks okay, but with Konami's track rec…
