As you hustle to retrieve your packages you’ll become enmeshed in a nefarious plot of world domination, which will require all of your wits and both of your glutes to overcome.

Building a base in Crashlands is so simple it feels like fingerpainting. You can create beautiful, sprawling bases in minutes!

Tameable Creatures
Every creature in Crashlands can become a trusty combat sidekick. Find an egg, incubate it, and hatch your very own adorable or hideous bundle of joy. You can even craft special items to grow and empower them!

Huge World... with Huge Problems
Four sentient races, three continents, an epic bid for the future of the planet, and you - trapped in the middle, trying to deliver your freakin' packages. Take your time to dive into the sidestories of the characters you meet or just rush headlong into making that special delivery. With hundreds upon hundreds of quests, there's a lot to do and discover on planet Woanope!

Nidhogg 2 coming to Switch this year

The wurm has returned and it must feed! Shed your garments and paint the walls with the flesh of your enemies, for only one can be worthy of sacrifice.

The rules are simple. Reach the other side and kill anyone that stands in your way. Deftly parry and rend their throats, riddle their bowels with arrows, or squish their brains between your toes. The wurm cares not for chivalry.

Sequel to the indie hit of 2014, Nidhogg 2 builds upon the award-winning gameplay of its predecessor with new weapons to wield and levels to master, head-to-toe character customization, and the captivatingly grotesque art of Toby Dixon.

And, with music from artists including Mux Mool, Geotic, Doseone, Osborne, and Daedelus, Nidhogg 2 has a soundtrack so good that even the menu screens are awesome.

Game Features:

Challenge the AI or a friend in 1v1 combat.
Fight for the top seat in 8-player tournaments.
Master the distinctive traits of four weapons.
Get stylish with full character customization.
Ten stages from castles to Nidhogg innards.
Alter the rules with over 10 different game variables.

Lumines Remastered includes "Trance Vibration" feature to let you "feel the bass across your body"

Mom!! Don't come in here, I'm trance vibrating!

I love rhythm games, and Lumines is definitely one of the most unique out there. It's awesome to see it getting an upgrade for Switch, and now we know it's going to include some interesting features. Check out this blurb from the official press release.

Feel the vibration: Turn on Trance Vibration and sync multiple controllers to feel the bass across your body.

I have four Joy-Con. I am definitely going to put a Joy-Con in each hand to play, and then strap a Joy-Con to each ankle. I promise to take pictures and make a fool of myself.

Nintendo Labo - another round of hands-on footage

I cannot wait to spend 2 hours building that Robot suit, and then breaking it in 5 minutes. I know I'm a big beast of a man, and I'm also quite clumsy. That kit doesn't stand a chance!

Tesla Vs. Lovecraft - more footage

Tesla vs Lovecraft is an intense top-down twin stick arena shooter from the creators of Crimsonland and Neon Chrome. Play as the enigmatic inventor Nikola Tesla harnessing the static energy to power up Tesla-Mech and give the lovecraftian nightmares a lesson in horror!

Head of Xbox is still okay with having Banjo and Kazooie appear in Smash Bros.

I want it to happen so bad, but I don't think it will. Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, has once again said that he's totally fine with Banjo and Kazooie appearing in Smash Bros.. While fans would love to see this, what would Nintendo gain from including the duo in Smash Bros. Switch's roster? They'd be promoting a pair of characters that won't otherwise appear on Nintendo platforms. It's not like a new Banjo-Kazooie game is going to come to Switch. The only reason they'd include the two in Smash would be to make fans happy. I know Nintendo aims to make people smile, but they're a business as well. I don't see this happening, but I really hope I'm wrong!

A Way Out director says the team hasn't explored Switch, but aren't saying a port isn't possible

Two days in a row with news on A Way Out, a game currently not slated for Switch. Could that change in the future? In a GamingBolt interview, A Way Out’s director, Josef Fares, didn't completely shoot down the idea.

“…we haven’t really explored the Switch, so I’m not saying it’s not going to happen. But it’s just that we are a small team and we’re doing everything in-house, which makes it very hard for us to have the time… but I’m not saying it will never happen.”

Random Time! - Want to hear Will.i.am talk about Pokemon GO?

Will.i.am is long for William

Will.i.am has taken time from his very busy music career to talk about Pokemon GO, of all things. This stems from a collab between the Black Eyed Peas and Marvel's Masters of the Sun, which has an augmented reality app to go along with it. With AR on the brain, Will.i.am stopped to ponder where Pokemon GO's competitors are.

We have a new instalment of this intellectual property that we're going to bring to culture later on in this year. For example, there’s Spotify and then there’s also Deezer, Apple Music and Pandora. There’s Instagram stories, and then there’s Snapchat. For everything there is another thing. But Pokemon Go? What’s the other Pokemon? It doesn’t exist, right? There is no other that.

And that s*** made a lot of money. But nobody is trying to go out into the world and do that s*** because to do that you have to have augmented technology. I’m just saying you have to start to identify and see things, trigger things and place things. And it’s amazing that there is no other Pokemon Go. For everything you can imagine, there is another thing. Except for that one. Wow it’s crazy!

I guess Will.i.am hasn't heard about the upcoming Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, and Ghostbusters AR games that are all very similar. I mean, I think they're pretty similar looking, but perhaps I'm not thinking on the same level as Will.i.am.
