Today, the Pokémon Essentials wikia and all downloads for it have been taken down due to a copyright claim by Nintendo of America.

Nintendo has been on a 'warpath' recently, first going after ROM sites, and now they back to going after 'fan-made' games, finally setting their sights on 'Pokemon Essentials' after it being free from any 'strikes' by Nintendo for over a decade, but that is no longer the case, as of today all downloads have been removed, but existing mods which don't feature 'Essentials' itself will still be allowed.

Nintendo has filed a lawsuit against the alleged operator of the popular console ROM sites LoveROMS.com and LoveRETRO.co.

The sites are among the most notorious online hubs for pirated games, according to Nintendo, and face millions of dollars in potential damages. With the launch of NES Classic Games on their Nintendo Switch coming up soon in September, it means we are in for another wave of crackdowns by big 'N' over any site that offers Emulators or Retro ROMs for playing Nintendo games on other platforms.

This script requires python 3, although I think porting it to python 2 shouldn't be too hard. No library download is required.

This neat script was released by @rkk on Sunday, at the time it was basically useless, but now with the nice update by Xecuter with their SX v1.3 you can now make better usage of packaging up your items as 'NSP' containers and installing them via the devmenu.

NOTE: Using this script to download unowned content (and most probably owned too) will lead to a ban. Don't hold me responsible for decisions YOU decided to take.

CDNSP is a Python3 CDN downloader. It needs the requests library (pip install request). tqdm (pip install tqdm) is optional and will make your progress bars look better. Maybe some more, I'm not sure.

Before I begin my review I would like to thank Team-Xecuter for giving me a review copy of their SX OS.

Hence this review is specifically for the SX OS which is meant for people who already has a jig / tool and a usb cable etc.... If you don't have those then I recommend you getting the SX PRO instead.

Enjoy my review! :)

Honestly, I had my doubts about the SX OS but after spending less than 10 minutes with this my doubts were gone.

What took me by surprise was that how easy it was to set up and how quick and well it operates. To set it up it was just a matter of going onto the Team Xecuter SX official website then downloading the required files they even have an easy to follow manual which I followed to a T and had no issues what so ever.

Once I had everything set up and clicked Inject Payload in a few seconds my switch was into the TX Boot Menu

MaxConsole Official Review of the: RDS Industries Officially Licensed Nintendo Switch Game Traveler Deluxe Travel Case
This is the official Nintendo carrying case for the Nintendo Switch home entertainment console.

Features listed on the package:
  1. Deluxe Travel Case
  2. Game Card Case 2 pcs
  3. Micro SD Card Case 2 pcs
As with any handheld console, one must take care in owning it. This travel case promises to hold and protect the switch as well as being durable with a 1680D hard shell for maximum protection. To be fair, this case does cost a little bit more than other, more plain, cases available, but it has a much more stylish look than the competition.

Right ladies and gents, I won't be covering as much as @realtimesave, as I am certain he has done an amazing review that I can barely add to, But here goes:


I received my review unit on Saturday, but was away so have not had a great deal of a chance to play with it fully.

This came in a very nicely packaged box containing the slide dongle to go in the right joy con, The USB-C payload dongle and a Micro-USB cable, I quite like the packaging logo matching the OS background logo.

20180623_120039.jpg 20180623_120124.jpg

Now as to start with I inserted the USB-C payload dongle into the USB-C port at the bottom of the switch, And then sliding jig dongle into where the right joy con slides in, Obviously make sure the pins are to the bottom with the ON to the bottom on the outside. Also pulled the Samsung 256gb SD card and put the boot.dat file on from the SX OS 1.2 zip file....

The TX SX Pro Modification Kit With Custom OS

This is the worldwide premiere of the first and only soft mod / USB-C dongle kit available for the Nintendo Switch console entertainment system has arrived, and the following review has been updated today (June 24th), to match the latest SX OS v1.2 release earlier today, so if you read it few days ago, please read it for all the 'improvements'.

It has been over a century since Nintendo was founded in Kyoto, Japan and started selling their first games: the Hanafuda playing cards. Since then, this multi-billion dollar company has made arguably the greatest and most popular video game systems of all time, each of which eventually has been a playground for pirates as well as homebrew developers. Nintendo’s current flagship home system is also...
