Nintendo reveals the best-selling Switch games of 2017, sort of
Posted 1 month ago by Brian in News, Switch eShop | 30 Comments | 0 Likes
It’s been a busy year for Nintendo and Switch, with many titles launching on the platform since its debut in March. With 2017 coming to a close, Nintendo has decided to share a listing of the system’s best-selling games this year. Sort of. There are a couple of caveats to consider.
But first, on with the list:
ARMS version 5.0.0 launches tomorrow

The next major update for ARMS will be available tomorrow, Nintendo has announced. It will be highlighted by the addition of a brand new fighter who was teased over the weekend.
Aside from the latest character, Nintendo hasn’t said much about ARMS version 5.0.0. We should have details very soon at least.
[Review] The Next Penelope
Posted 1 month ago by Jakob Vujovic in Reviews, Switch eShop | 1 Comment | 0 Likes
System: Switch (eShop)
Release date: December 21, 2017
Developer: Aurélien Regard / Seaven Studio
Publisher: Plug In Digital
Set in a far-future interpretation of one of the oldest pieces of western literature, The Next Penelope has an engaging aesthetic wrapper for its gameplay mixture of top-down shooter and Micro Machines style racing. As novel as space Poseidon might be, these narrative elements are also its flimsiest facet. The snippets of dialogue that are peppered throughout the game’s five main major challenges fumble with some inelegant wording, odd grammar, and a few comma splices. The premise isn’t given the space to develop into much beyond passing references to the Odyssey. Fortunately, this is all just window dressing – the game’s hectic arcade-style shooting fares much better in blending somewhat dissonant gameplay concepts. It comes together as an impressively well constructed genre hybrid.
