Check out cover art for The Long Journey Home

We've got your covered

The Long Journey Home was announced for Switch back in March 2019, which came with full details on what the game is all about. What we didn't hear was a release date, which we unfortunately still do not have. That said, perhaps that information is coming soon, as a retailer has updated their listing with the game's cover art, seen above.

Nintendo removes "Storm Area 51" level from Super Mario Maker 2 due to “inappropriate or harmful content”

These damn kids and their memes!

I guess Nintendo's in a banning mood today! First up, they removed a Super Mario Maker 2 level by master course creator GrandPooBear, and now they've yanked a stage named "Storm Area 51." The stage was removed due to “inappropriate or harmful content.”

With this stage's removal, I can at least see the reasoning. For those who don't know, the "Storm Area 51" movement is aiming to get people to actually storm the real-life Area 51 on Sept. 20th, 2019 to see what the government is hiding. This has actually lead to the U.S. Air Force warning people not to enter the area, as it's illegal to do so, and the area is used for military training. Nintendo simply doesn't want anyone taking the advice of random people, which could get them into trouble at Area 51.

Netflix shares a first look at Roach in their Witcher adaptation

Giddy up

Netflix is running a master class on drip-feeding information when it comes to The Witcher. They put out a still from the show here or there, let loose with a little bit of information from time to time, and keep fans foaming at the mouth for the first trailer. While we're still waiting for that, Netflix opened up the faucet a tad today to give us a look at Roach, which is Geralt's trusty steed.
