Random Time! - Chance the Rapper says Fortnite is coming to Switch today

Remember back when Chance the Rapper was asking for Fortnite to appear on Switch? Well it looks like he's moved from fan to industry insider. According to Chance, we should be getting Fortnite on Switch today. His tweet says "tomorrow", but it was tweeted out on June 10th, 2018. Well, I guess we don't have to wait long to see if Chance is in the know!

Random Time! - Super Mali Waterway Wrkers figurine is one hell of a unique Mario rip-off

First off, yes...this is a real product. The 'Super Mali Waterway Wrkers' figurine is set to release Q4 2018, and you can even get knock-off Goomba and Piranha Plant toys to go with it. Whether you like the style or not, it does seem like the figurine is pretty high quality. That's probably why it costs $135!

Random Time! - Wii U fan transforms the system into a playable, wearable coat

Anything that helps the Wii U live on in memory is just fine by me, even if it's a coat! I don't know what made someone come up with a Wii U coat, but I'll be damned if I don't want one. The perfect way to stay warm and dry while getting a bit of Wii U gaming going! Not exactly as portable as the Switch, but it'll do!

Random Time! - Switch, SNES Classic Edition, and Wii Mini crammed into a boombox

Yes, it's a bit of a mess, but it all works. I've got no problem with someone taking their old tech and making it useful again. This is definitely one way of doing that!

Random Time! - Chrissy Teigen wants Animal Crossing on Switch

Thanks to Magitroopa for the heads-up!

Steven Spielberg is a bit confused, says he played Mario VR on the Playstation

Steven Spielberg has been involved with a number of games over the years. He's dropped by E3 and checked out some games. He's commented very fondly about Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo's work in general. He also just handled the film adaptation of Ready Player One, which is deeply steeped in the world of gaming. With all that knowledge and history, you'd think Spielberg would be at least somewhat well-versed in video games. That's why this next statement to Japanese website Kyodo is so confusing.

I played Mario and so on on the PlayStation. The first time I tried it I didn’t want to take the goggles off.” - Steven Spielberg

I mean, I don't even know what to say. I don't know what Mr. Spielberg played...and I have no idea what he's talking about. We NEED a follow-up interview on this for clarification. I'd love to know what he actually played!

Thanks to MarioCheated for the heads up!

Random Time! - Atooi's Jools Watsham featured in a Bill Nye video

Well isn't that a random bit of cool?! Lefloic was watching a Billy Nye video where Bill responds to Twitter questions, and at the 6 minute and 30 second mark, a question from none other than Atooi's Jools Watsham comes up! Even though Atooi is hard at work on multiple projects, it looks like Jools spends a bit of free time thinking about some deep stuff!

Random Time! - Jelly Mario Bros. is completely weird twist on Super Mario Bros.


Jelly Mario Bros. is in no way an officially-licensed mod of Super Mario Bros.. That said, it's an absolutely strange project you should check out while you can. As you can see in the GIF above, Jelly Mario Bros. takes the original game and makes everything super squishy. It might look the same as Super Mario Bros., but it plays nothing like it.

Random Time! - Modder crams SNES Classic Edition into a vintage 80s boombox

That's such a random thing to do, and the results are so damn cool. Perhaps I really dig it because I'm an 80s kid, but that who aesthetic really tickles my fancy. Plus now you can take your boombox with you, listen to your rad jams, and then get some SNES action in as well!

Kemco shows interest in Felix from Asdivine Hearts joining the Smash Bros. roster
