The DOCK idea is nice, but its not very portable!

While the Switch is a flawed console, I’m a big fan of Nintendo’s latest system because of its home console-portable nature
Nintendo would have you rather buy a bunch of extra $90 DOCK's and place them all around where you travel to, like work, or friends, etc. instead of just including an simple HDMI out on their portable Switch, but with a little work you can turn your DOCK into a Travel one! :)

Recently, Blizzard has made the original StarCraft FREE for all to enjoy, but someone found something even better, the Source Code for the game, but instead of warez'ing it to the underground, he returned it to Blizzard and they in exchange treated him to BlizzCon.

Icons for a possible deluxe version appear

A dataminer has found hints that Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga is heading to Nintendo 3DS. Twitter user SciresM, well-known in the Pokémon and 3DS hacking communities, dumped files over the weekend that included icons and other information pointing to a deluxe version of the Game Boy Advance role-playing game.
The Nintendo Switch might be out and selling out within hours of new shipments, but when it comes to new games, there is noting better than the very popular New 3DS Handheld, and it seems big 'N' is still willing to support it even with much lower sales, 3DS is still #1 :)

Monster Strike “just wasn’t the success that we thought it would be”

Monster Strike has been big in Japan for years — last year, the game reportedly earned $1.3 billion, according to research firm SuperData — but the mobile game has struggled to find a wide audience overseas.
In the Asia market, massive multi-player mobile games are hit, earning publishers billions of dollars, but it seems porting them over to the Western market just does not work, as yet another failure has stuck this time to Monster Strike with them shutting down the English port.
