Rouge Company, the team-based multiplayer shooter has finally left beta after almost 2 years. In addition to a cinematic trailer to celebrate the release, the devs also talk about just how much the game has changed these past 2 years here.
Rogue Company has added an immense amount of content during the Beta period: 9 Rogues, 7 maps, 9 weapons, and 12 game modes. Hand-in-hand with the community, developers have been relentlessly improving the game with new features such as next-gen native versions, Rogue and weapon mastery, draft pick ranked play, human backfill, contracts, narrative events, and collaborations with Dr. DisRespect and Rambo. For new players and veterans alike, this feature-complete version is the best time for some Rogue Company thrills.
The game is free on Switch and all other platforms, so now is the perfect time to jump in and play!

Coming soon after yesterday’s live event, Epic has revealed the next season’s theme for Fortnite: Vibin`. While we are not sure as to what all will be changed yet, this season seems to have a focus on celebrating the victory over the Imagined Order in yesterday’s live event.
We get a first look at this season’s Battle Pass skins, including Darth Vader and Indiana Jones’ Fortnite debut. Both Darth Vader and Indiana Jones feature their own unique weapons, being a lightsaber and a whip, which seems to act similarly to Spider-Man’s Web Slingers from Chapter 3 Season 1.
Other new features include a sawblade shooter, the return of the Baller, and ridable animals. Finally, multiple new map changes are featured including a large tree and mushrooms, an underground dance lounge, and the star of the trailer, a baller-based rollercoaster.
As always, this is only the beginning of changes, with many more to be revealed when the update drops and many more to come later in the season.
Not very cool Mario
Everyone has at one time at another (willingly or unwillingly) thrown one of the baby penguins off of the cliff in Super Mario 64. For those on the more “willing” side of things, you may be happy to learn that you can actually do the same for both of the big penguins as well! Twitter user @MarioBrothBlog shared this tweet showcasing how it can be done below!
With how hyper-specific you have to be to get this to work, I think it’s safe to say most of us will be sticking with throwing off the baby penguins.
7 years of inking
Before the launch of the Switch, it wouldn’t exactly be an understatement to say that Nintendo wasn’t in the best spot. After the massive success of the Wii, no one could have expected its successor, the Wii U, to perform the way it did. While poor marketing is generally considered to be the reason for the lackluster sales, something had to have sold the system for those who bought it. For me and many others, that reason was Splatoon.
Splatoon started its development shortly after the launch of the Wii U. A group of younger talent all involved with Wii U projects ranging from the Wii U menu to games like Nintendo Land or New Super Mario Bros. U got together with one goal in mind: make something new. They didn’t want to make another Mario or Zelda, they wanted to make a game set in a genre outside the norm for Nintendo. After six months and over 70 different ideas, the first prototype for what we now know as Splatoon was born.

It’s rare to see a new NES game released this long after the console’s debut back in the 80s, but it does happen from time to time. Even rarer is that one of these games would get a movie adaptation.
Slow Mole, an indie game for NES released back in 2021 may hold the title for the first new-NES game to get a movie adaptation. As seen in the trailer, this movie will be claymation and seems to feature the Slow-Mole himself being sucked into the Slow Mole game after rage quitting.
For more information on both Slow Mole the game and Slow Mole the movie, information can be found on the creator Erik Rosenlund’s Patreon.

Originally called Trading Time: A Croak Tale, Time on Frog Island is an upcoming sandbox puzzle game by Half Past Yellow and Merge Games. Even though I have only spent a short amount of this game so far, I can honestly say it is shaping up to be one of the most unique and refreshing titles I’ve played in quite some time.
With an intro straight out of The Legend Of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Time on Frog Island thrusts you straight into a strange, unfamiliar island after a horrible storm shipwrecks you on Frog Island. When I say this game thrusts you straight into things, I really do mean it. After the short intro cutscene, you are on your own, waking up on the shore of a beach. That’s all of the help you get, and you’re truly on your own to explore and find your way from here on out.
A common sentiment I hear is that “any game can be fun with friends.” While this does have some merit, the game still has to have all of the right pieces to be fun. I can confidently say that Lumberhill has all of these pieces. Gameplay, level design, challenge; anything you need to make a good co-op game, Lumberhill has it.
Lumberhill puts you and up to 3 friends in the role of a lumberjack where you will complete as many tasks as quickly as possible to get a high score. For the most part, the tasks in Lumberhill are pretty straightforward, falling into two main categories: wood and animals. Wood tasks are completed by chopping trees and delivering them to the sawmill, while animal tasks are completed by herding groups of animals into the barn.
A new episode of Pokemon Academy is out, and it’s all about Energy Acceleration! This episode focuses on pokemon like Victini V and Rillaboom who can increase your energy count massively, leading you to get strong Pokemon as fast as possible.
