Nintendo Switch Emulator Has Released and is Open Source

Whelp, it’s happened. An open source Nintendo Switch emulator called Yuzu is now out in the wild causing some folks to cheer while also causing some widespread panic among many consumers as well.

For one side that’s  excited, this sort of stuff combined with homebrew allows them to dump their games to their PC and play them while creating custom modifications.

The other side excited about this i...

Diddy Kong is a character that deserves to be in the spotlight. The Did You Know Gaming? channel does impressive research as to why he wasn’t featured that often early on.

We Battle the Wii U Zelda Tech Demo’s Armoghoma Remastered in Unreal Engine 4

 

Above I take on Armoghoma from the Wii U Zelda Tech Demo. How is that possible? A fan recreation in Unreal Engine 4. It’s not perfect, mind you. Some of Link’s animations could really use some work and it is possible to make Armoghoma bug out if you start spamming arrows like crazy, but the fight is fun and it just feels unbelievable that I am even having this battle after dreaming about it a ton after the reveal of the Zelda Wii U tech demo back in 2011.

You can check out the creator and download this demo for yourself here.

Random: Lil Yachty and Logic Playing Mario Kart 8 While on Stage

In the middle of a performance, Lil Yachty and Logic decide that they want to play Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Nintendo Switch. They are also using the Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers for this match. I have so much admiration for these guys to actually play a game while they are performing. If you’re ever at a concert, then its okay for the band or singer to take out a Nintendo Switch and play some games. Just look at how excited the audience is to watch them play.

Breath of the Wild Glitch Gives Player Weapon With +65,535 Damage… Sort Of

Well, this is definitely a glitch for the ages. The image above shows a player with a weapon that has +65,535 damage. Eastonator12 took out a Lynel playing the game on Switch, but the game crashed shortly after. No data was lost and everything seemed fine, until he checked out the weapon he attained from the Lynel kill. Interestingly enough, that number is the maximum value for a 16bit unsigned integer in the world of programming. Basically, glitch or no glitch, that’s the highest possible value in that specific situation.

Here’s video evidence of him one shoting Calamity Ganon:

Of course, you may have some doubt about this and you’re right for having some...
