It's almost like people miss playing classic Nintendo games.

Recently, we reported that the Nintendo Switch has outsold the 'GameCube' and has past the 21 million mark, but what is more amazing is that during the same time period the Classic Mini's from Nintendo have sold over 10 million units and during half that time they were sold-out because they were 'limited edition' runs by big 'N' and now with them re-introducing both models this holiday season and lower the price of NES Classic to $59.99, we are sure going to see alot more units sold to be unwrap over the holidays. :)

The Switch UP by Collective Minds is a BREAKTHROUGH accessory for today's Switch gamer.

Not much is known about Switch-UP yet from 'Collective Minds', but the company has good track history of producing devices like 'DriveHub' and selling 'CronusMax' which allows for different controllers on different consoles, but now they are entering the new Nintendo Switch accessory world, but what makes this product unique is that they are claiming it has 'mods inside' it, not only allowing you to use your favorite gaming controller of choice on the Switch, but also 'enhancing' your game experience with Odyssey & Zelda. :)

The Nintendo Switch is on a spree!

Well Switch is on roll, lighting up household after household with its family fun, casual games, and some good 1st-party Nintendo favs, and a few nice 3rd-party games, people are overall happy with the DOCKable/PORTable Switch idea that big 'N' came up with after the horrible Wii U setup that never took off, now the Switch is beating previous Nintendo console record holders and its not even 2019 yet.

Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0, and Resident Evil 4 will each be launching on Nintendo Switch in 2019!

@CapcomUSA set the 'net on fire today, with their Tweet saying that 3 games from the Resident Evil franchise are being ported over to the Switch. Since the 'Tweet' came from their 'USA Division' there is hope growing on social media that means they will have some 'physical cartridges' for the release in NA regions, as currently the BioHazard game is only 'Cloud-based' on the Switch in Japan market.

Stay tuned to @MaxConsoleTweet for more updates on this exciting news, and of course all other important gaming news!

Huawei-Mate-Pro-X-vs-Nintendo-Switch.jpg
A smartphone with a phablet sized screen of 7.2-inches, 6GB of RAM, 5000mAh-massive battery, ultra-fast Kirin 980 processor, minimum 128 GB of storage and a Leica triple-camera setup.. Surprised?
Meet Mate 20 X, the monster gaming smartphone, recently launched by Huawei shaming the rivals like iPhone XS Max in specifications.

Also similar to the Nintendo style, it can enable the user to mount a JoyCon style controller to its left side. In its launching ceremony in London, Huawei thought it is no exaggeration to call their Mate 20 X the takeover of Nintendo Switch. They attempted to dethrone the might of the Nintendo Switch by highlighting mainly three victories in the specs department. You can play your BGO casino games on it easily, but that’s not why you would love it. Those online Casino games that BGO...

DreamSwitch.jpg
SEGA’s Naoki Horii stated that the Nintendo Switch was close to successfully running Dreamcast titles via emulation.

In a recent interview by 'Sega Ages' and published on 'Famitsu', it seems Sega is infact working on an 'emulator' for running Dreamcast games on the Switch console, instead of using the normal re-mastering process for games using existing 'source code', they are going instead for the 'emulator' route for their Dreamcast library.

Big blue. ONIKUMA!
Onikuma Gaming Headset K6 / Wired Blue LED light Headphone Headset

While I am not an audiophile by any means, I can notice good bass when it is pronounced from a good set of speakers. The Onikuma Gaming Headset K6 is no exception and delivers excellent sound for a low price.

The Onikuma K6 has over the ear speakers which fit nicely and comfortably (using soft memory cotton) over the ears while almost unexpectedly keeping them warm at the same time. The top is padded and it has a stylish 360 degree noise reduction microphone on the side that hinges to about 70 degrees down and 90 degrees up for a total of 160 degree hinge angle.

Still, everyone should Pokémon Go to the polls for #Elections2018

Millions of Pokémon Go players are crying in the streets trying to find the latest 'rare monster' to capture, as Former President Obama declared today, that he does not care about Pokémon, instead the young fans of the popular game should go to polls instead and vote.

Well, maybe the Democrats are just missing the point, all they need to do is make the polling stations PokeStop's and they would be quickly filled up with the millions of fans that they just declared today, they don't care about! :)

Hmm, thinking about that idea, it might backfire, as the 'snowflakes' would end up voting Republican since they have now been triggered over the fact Obama does not like them! :D
