At this point in its life cycle, the Nintendo Switch is essentially the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson of video game consoles.

Everybody loves it, it can charm even the biggest of skeptics, and you might seriously consider electing it president in 2020 if that were possible.
There been alot of speculation that the Nintendo Switch could be getting some good third-party support after various comments from EA and Ubisoft hit the Internet, but still seeing AAA+ games like Halo, or Prey, or Overwatch or Assassin's Creed on Switch is not really going to occur due still the technical limits of the Switch being both a portable and home console in one and not up to par when compared to the rapidly selling PlayStation 4 or the upcoming Xbox One Scorpio with its Native 4k support and enhanced 1080p.

Mexico’s Federal Police yesterday intercepted a shipment of contraband goods headed for the US at Guadalajara Airport.

Inside was not drugs, or weapons, but vials full of live spiders hidden inside what look like fake Famicom games.
This is new one for the history books, as someone thought they could get away with importing some 'illegal spiders' by hiding them in some 'bootleg' Nintendo cartridges, maybe next time they should try some legit real cartridges, so as not to raise attention to it! :)

Recent years have seen a huge rise in retro gaming.

Many people have lost faith in the AAA gaming market because of its lack of innovation and the cost of newly released games.
This has lead people to play more indie games and more retro games from years gone by. Video games have a massive catalogue of great games throughout its history that people can enjoy some awesome titles without needing to keep up with the latest releases.

Mobile phones and tablets have had a lot of retro games released with the likes of Square Enix releasing every Final Fantasy game from Final Fantasy I to Final Fantasy IX on the Google Play and App Store.
