Fire Emblem Engage has proven to be one of the more mechanically interesting games in the long-running strategy franchise. If you are new to the title – or the entire series – this beginner’s guide will help you better understand how some of the most important mechanics work. This guide is currently up-to-date with the Wave 3 updates, including the Well mechanic, which was added free to the game post-launch. Below we have included timestamps for the major mechanics covered in our video.

Yesterday, Nintendo finally unveiled ten minutes of gameplay from the highly anticipated The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom featuring series producer Eiji Aonuma. I am now joined by special guest and Breath of the Wild super fan, Myles, to discuss all the new mechanics, powers, enemies and more found in our newest video. It’s a long one, so strap in!

With only a few days remaining before the day the eShop closes its doors on the 3DS, I wanted to make a video to help folks make a choice on what to grab before the final curtain call.

I decided to tailor my list to the thing I most cherished about the system, its catalogue of Japanese role-playing games. It was with the 3DS that I fell in love with the genre as it became a haven for some of the most generous, polished, classic titles in the genre.

Wave 4 of the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass was just released, so Sam and I got together to do a tier list to see if the new tracks stand up to scrutiny.

The Wave 4 DLC included two cups – the Fruit Cup and Boomerang Cup. The former featured four tracks: Amsterdam Drift from Mario Kart Tour, Riverside Park from Mario Kart Super Circuit, DK Summit from Mario Kart Wii, and the brand new course, Yoshi’s Island. The Boomerang Cup also includes four tracks: Bangkok Rush from Mario Kart Tour, Waluigi Stadium from Mario Kart Double Dash, Mario Circuit from Mario Kart DS, and Singapore Speedway from Mario Kart Tour. Birdo returned alongside the new cups, the first roster addition we’ve seen from the Booster Course Pass.

While March may not feature any major Nintendo first-party releases, there are still quite a few Switch games to look forward to.

In a new video we’ve put together, Sam highlights six great looking games that are coming to Switch this month. Things are looking a bit quieter in March, but there are still notable releases with Atelier Ryza 3, Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania, and more.
