Zelda Fanboys have Switch'ed their thumbs to an different form of 'Joystick' to play with over the last week!

Porn sites say they suffered a drop in visitors shortly after the Nintendo Switch was launched last week. YouPorn said it entertained 17 percent less gamers last weekend, after the console’s launch on March 3.
Nintendo has named their new console/handheld right, because their loyal fanboys 'Switch' from their normal daily job of 4chan fapping, to running around with Link trying to find Zelda, so much so that porn sites noticed a major drop in overall traffic since the Switch launch.

In this action-puzzle game, paper pals Snip and Clip must cut each other up to overcome tricky obstacles... or just to laugh their heads off (sometimes literally).

You can use the new Joy-Con's from your Switch on your NES Mini Console!

Nintendo Switch controllers are flexible, if flawed — the latest hardware they work with is the NES Classic, via 8bitdo’s $17 Retro Receiver, and a new firmware update available now for that little dongle.
Even tho the Joy-Con Left might have some 'Bluetooth' distance range issues, it does not mean its not a wonderful little controller to use, and now besides using it on your Android and PC and Mac as we previously reported earlier this week about, you can now use it on another Nintendo Product, that prized NES Classic Mini that sold by hundreds of thousands this past holiday season and is still hard to get, but if you do happen to own one you will be glad to know you can now game away using your Joy-Con's or Pro Switch controllers.

Reggie: "In our view, these are not differentiators"!

Nintendo's new video game system, the Switch, isn't able to browse the internet, stream music, movies, or play any media that isn't a video game. It's a game console, first and foremost, despite its resemblance to tablets like the iPad that are so often used for media consumption.
At soon as the Switch was launched, people were trying to figure out how to watch Videos on it, and access Facebook, etc. -- And with DNSwitch on your PC, people have gotten to that stage, but soon you might not have to Switch Trick your new prized handheld/console, as Nintendo looks like its going to crave-in and discuss with various companies on how to add 'streaming apps'. :)

You can fix it yourself, with a bit of time, some wire, and some soldering, and of course voiding your warranty!

The Nintendo Switch is great and I can’t stop thinking about Zelda even when I’m not playing it. But some of you may have noticed that the left ‘Joy-Con’ controller has some connection issues.
Since even the early days of preview units appearing for reviewers before the big launch last week, there was reports of the LEFT side of your Joy-Con's going dark, losing sync even when directly attached to the screen part, but the right always was working, well it turns out for some reason the right has better, bigger, bolder Bluetooth antenna, then the left side does, but it can be fixed! :)

Canadian Court Awards Nintendo $12.76 Million in Damages in Precedent-Setting Case

Nintendo is going hard-core against sellers of 'flashcarts' for the first time in Canada, since laws were updated back in 2013.
The only problem with this PR statement below is that it is totally wrong, it is WHAT THEY TRIED TO GET <- NOT -> WHAT THEY GOT, in the end infact the Judge stopped the case after 8 long hours of one-sided discussion where the defense didn't even have a chance, and both parties settled out of court with low damage award of only $20k against the owner, and removal of all 'flashcarts' from the affiliated websites, but Nintendo decided that would not be 'great news', so they decided to issue the following statement as if they WON the full amount they were asking, which is total case of outright defamation of character which the owner is thinking of suing...

I mean, not that you should be using them for those

The Nintendo Switch’s controllers work on a variety of other platforms, including Macs, Windows and even mobile phones. That includes not just the more conventional Pro controller, but the tiny Joy-Con controllers as well.
It seems Nintendo JoyCon's from the Switch, can just be easy connected to your own Android mobile devices as you wish, so instead of gaming with them on your official 6.2" Nintendo touchscreen/tablet like device, you could just as easy grab your nice 10" Android tablet, and play games on it (well not Nintendo ones like Zelda), but other Android ones, using the tiny little Red/Blue JoyCon units!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the biggest stand-alone launch title

Nintendo’s Switch console boasted impressive records on its first weekend out of the gate, as the company said it beat every launch sales record for any Nintendo system in the Americas in history.
Nintendo claims in America that the Switch did basically just as good as Wii itself (not the Wii U), and in some markets even better.

How close is your router?

The Nintendo Switch may have a weaker-than-desirable Wi-Fi radio, according to numerous reports of signal strength issues with Nintendo’s new console.
There been alot of reports of problems with the Nintendo Switch, first there was JoyCon de-sync'ing issue, and Nintendo basically stated to solve there, move your fish tank out of the way, move the dock closer to you, and away from bundles of wires, and remove all other wireless devices from your living room, but now another signal issue is coming to light, and that is bad WiFi signal bars, and Nintendo's wonderful answer to that is get closer to your router, between 10 to 15 feet if you having online issues with downloads or multiplayer.

Get Rewards through HackerOne

Nintendo has updated their successful 'Bug Bounty Program' running on HackerOne to now include the recently launched Nintendo Switch hybrid, instead of just giving rewards of up to $20k for disclosing exploits on the Nintendo 3DS, now you can do so for Switch!
We reported a while ago, on when Nintendo launched their 3DS Bug Bounty Program, and back then we commented on that it would be test case and for sure will be expanded to the 'Switch', and yep, we were right Nintendo has now updated the site to include the Switch. and good news for those willing 'exploit' the system, them doing so has confirmed the security on the Nintendo Switch is using ARM® TrustZone®, so that is the area you need to focus on. Thanks for telling us Nintendo and pointing us in the right direction!

1-2 Switch on the new Nintendo has gotten some bad reviews, but for this gaming couple they are very happy with it!

Playing video games as a couple can be hard enough, but try finding something for two people to play when one of them is blind adds a whole new set of considerations. Enter 1-2 Switch, the interactive party game that finally gave a wife and her blind husband something they could enjoy together.
Nintendo markets the 1-2 Switch as the golden egg of 'Party Games' and the hope it will be 'System Seller', but sadly its not included as bundle-in game, and is very differ in the way it operates as game, infact some of mini-games don't even use the 'screen' at all, just a tutorial on how to play, all the action is in the 'Joy-Con', the 'HD Rumble', and the two players looking at each other, and not the TV screen at all, so the game as gotten some very bad reviews by traditional hard-core...

thx2 allgamefans!

The Nintendo Switch’s Pro Controller is partially translucent, meaning that you can look inside the guts of the accessory.
And if you look hard and long enough, you will find an 'Easter Egg' inside the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, that thanks your loyalism.

If you have a Nintendo Switch, you’re definitely going to want to pick up and install a screen protector ASAP.

As with any major console release, there’s bound to be an issue or two once it hits the public. The same is holding true for the Nintendo Switch, from disconnecting JoyCons to blue/orange screens, and more...
Unfortunately, the latest issue with the Nintendo Switch that was just released a few days ago, is a real bad one, the system after usage ends up with scratches on your screen, and not from normal things like keys in your backpack, or other user errors, this one is infact indeed caused by the Nintendo Switch's own supplied official equipment that you so proudly unboxed a few days ago!

The culprit?

The Nintendo Switch Docks, it seems sliding the portable part in and out of your Dock, just like the nice videos that Nintendo has shown for last few months leading up to their...
