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…

Splatoon 2 Global Testfire From A Noob's Perspective

I never played the original Splatoon. I always wanted to, but I just never had a chance to try it out. I've seen people play it on YouTube quite a lot (the competitive nature of the game has always provided a fun streaming environment), so I'm familiar with what the game was like. However, you never really know what a game is going to actually end up being like until you get a chance to play it for yourself. Because of that, I was ecstatic to get a chance to play the Global Testfire when it started. I downloaded the beta almost a week in advance, and I eagerly awaited the moment I got to press the triggers and begin my first foray into Inkopolis.

 About five minutes before it was scheduled to, the testfire began. I pressed the button as soon as I heard, and immediately I was in. I've heard that some people had some really bad server issues, but I personally ran into very few. After I was lucky enough to have the server gods smile down on me, it was time to paint. I chose th…
