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

“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...

Cranky Kong Voice Actor, Aron Tager, Passes Away

Raise your hand if you remember the original animated series for Donkey Kong Country? I know I do, even though it’s run on cable TV was fairly short lived like most of Nintendo’s forerays into cartoon telivision back then.

Are you a bit fuzzy on his work on the show? Here is one of my favorite parts of the entire show to remember him by:

To be honest, Aron Tager embodied Cranky Kong pretty well voice wise as a sort of memetastically wonderful way.

He also played other roles in Hollywood such as Emcee in X-Men, with his most recent role being Harry on the show My 90 Year Old Roommate. He will be dearly missed.
