Earlier this week, Nintendo delighted Fortnite fans by announcing that the game, which might just be the most popular game being played right now, was coming to the Switch immediately.

Nintendo’s announcement felt like a dream come true after years of console makers refusing to play nice. But it isn’t a dream, because Sony continues to flip the bird to its competitors and Fortnite players on the PS4 are being left out in the cold, unable to play with Xbox or Switch gamers.

These Tests Will Tell You Just How Good Your Eyes Are at Seeing Colour

Let’s talk about how you’re perceiving colour. The idea came to me when a coworker asked if they should get the computer with 100-per cent sRGB or 100-per cent Adobe RGB, which displays more shades of green. I jokingly told him to take this X-Rite colour perception test to see if he could even perceive colour well enough for the more expensive Adobe RGB display. He could — but some people can’t!

Hyperkin’s Duke Xbox Controller is Every Bit As Ridiculous as the Original

My tiny hands remember the original, enormous Xbox controller with fondness. Not because it was ergonomic or a joy to use, but in the same way I remember other absurd and outdated technology—with absolute amusement. The original Xbox controller was a beast, and the tweaked and high tech £70 Duke from Hyperkin, that works with both PCs and the Xbox One, borrows that same portly profile to create one of the biggest and most ridiculous controllers out there.

There’s a Treasure Trove of Ancient Video Games in This Underground Bunker

Mike Mika is a video game developer, so naturally he has a passion for video games. He modded Donkey Kong once so his young daughter could play as Pauline instead of just watching her flail as a damsel in distress. His first major paycheck went towards one of those Star Wars gaming cabinets from the ‘80s where you flew around in a X-Wing. But that wasn’t the first or last video game he owned. Read More >>
