Psyonix has pushed out its biggest Rocket League update of 2018, and it includes a number of new features and content as well as a beta version of the Tournaments system. The patch is rolling out to all platforms today. The big addition in this update is Tournaments. This is a multiplayer feature that enables groups of people to create and participate in an organized tournament from within Rocket League. While the car-soccer game debuted in 2015 and is ideal for a tournament-style event, you previously had to use external tournament platforms that did not have a lot of integration with Rocket League. In Rocket League Tournaments, anyone can start their own competition and set the parameters. You can choose minimum and maximum competitive ranking, set a password, and choose which arenas everyone will play at. Thanks to Rocket League’s crossplatfrom play, PC players can take on their friends on Xbox One or Switch. Here’s a closer look at the Tournaments platform: This update … [Read more...] about Rocket League’s Tournaments update is live with Nintendo Switch upgrades
When Nintendo updated its Switch firmware to 5.0 to fix some vulnerabilities, an unintended (or possibly intended if you believe so) issue came along with it in the form of Switch devices being sent into a boot loop, essentially bricking them. If you're concerned about whether you've got a peripheral that could cause your Switch to be rendered inoperable, check out this list of third-party docks that have been reported as not causing the boot loop. Let me take a moment to remind everyone that using any unofficial accessories puts your Switch at risk, so please be careful and cautious when considering using anything but the official licensed Nintendo Switch Dock under any circumstance.

I loved the over-the-top action and the aesthetics of the first Bayonetta and I heard the sequel was a step-up from that, and after playing it on the Switch, they were right.STORY Bayonetta 2 is a tale in two parts. The first part is a race to save Bayonetta’s friend Jeanne from hell. Along the way, you meet characters from the first game and a brand new character named Loki. Loki is a boy with mysterious powers and the forces of Heaven are trying to capture him.You run into him as you try to make your way to a special mountain that can take you to Hell or Heaven. The boy’s backstory is … [Read more...] about Bayonetta 2 Nintendo Switch Review: Still Amazing, Even On The Go
The Nintendo Switch is the fastest-selling console in the United States through the first 12 months of its life , and that has led to a wave of third-party peripherals. This includes a bustling segment of external-battery cases that extend the life of the Switch as a handheld machine. The latest entry in this space is the Pelda Pro from Amdisi, and it is the first that enables you to keep the charging case (which also acts as a stand) on while you connect to a television over HDMI. The Pelda Pro is available for preorder for $140, and the standard version without HDMI is $59. Each version has an 8,000 mAh (milli Amp hour) battery, which almost triples the “fuel” tank of the Switch and its 4,310 mAh battery (giving you 10 or more hours of gameplay on a charge). But the reason the Pelda Pro is so much more expensive is because it includes a micro-HDMI port that you won’t find on any of the competitors. Here’s a disconcertingly ripped Mario to demonstrate … [Read more...] about Pelda Pro is Nintendo Switch’s first HDMI-friendly battery case
