Here’s How Darksiders: Warmastered Edition On Switch Compares to Other Versions

Darksider’s Warmastered Edition that originally released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016 has now released on Nintendo Switch and you might be curious how this version of the game stacks up compared to all of the rest. You may actually be pretty surprised by the results, as examined by Digital Foundry:

Of course, when it comes to “home consoles”, Switch is still the only platform with the game and while a PC version may exist, it’s possible it never releases outside of Korea. The real question is – do you care if this game stays exclusive, or are you okay with it going to other platforms?

WSJ States Nintendo Switch Pro + Mini Arriving THIS YEAR, PS4 Level of Power!?

The Wall Street Journal is at it again, this time doubling down on a report they had last year about a Switch Mini and this time throwing a Pro model in the mix. Here are their exact words:

“Nintendo Co. plans to launch two new versions of its Switch gaming console as early as this summer, people familiar with the matter said, as the company seeks to sustain sales momentum for the product going into a crucial third year.

One version will have enhanced features targeted at avid videogamers, although it won’t be as powerful as Sony Corp.’s PlayStation 4 Pro or Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox One X, according to parts suppliers and software developers for Nintendo who have early access to a prototype of the machine.

The other version is a cheaper option for casual gamers that Nintendo sees as a suc...

Chrome Gets Switch Controller Support & It’s a Big Deal

Google Chrome appears to be getting Switch controller support for the Joy-Cons and the Pro Controller, according to Google’s own public documentation as seen here. What could this possibly mean? I detail out my thoughts in the following video:
