Posted on 2 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Switch, Videos | 4 Comments
Super Bomberman R received its latest patch tonight. Among other things, the developers increased the game’s frame rate.
Some are claiming that Super Bomberman R runs at 60 frames per second with version 1.3. We’ll probably need an analysis to verify that, but there’s no doubt that it runs at a faster rate.

[Review] Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Release date: April 28, 2017
Two years ago, I wrote an article on my relationship with Mario Kart and how Mario Kart 8 revitalized the series. In making that game, Nintendo reignited the magic I used to feel towards the franchise during the N64 and GameCube days. Mario Kart 8 shed a whole new light on kart racers and the potential they had at a time where most felt stale or rehashed, with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed being the new “king” of that genre before Mario Kart 8 returned to reclaim. Now in 2017, we’re back with the definitive version of one of Wii U’s best titles on its successor, the Nintendo Switch, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It’s as extravagant and beautiful as it was on Wii U, but this time with a revamped battle mode, all DLC included, a few new features, and plenty to love all over again.
