Ranking All The Free Switch Online Games You’re Never Going To Play

The Switch’s long-awaited online service is here, which means Nintendo fans are finally…paying for something that was free a week ago? If that sounds like a raw deal, fear not: Nintendo is taking a page from its competitors’ playbooks and offering up some free bribes bonuses to get players on board. However, instead of Microsoft and Sony’s approach of giving you a bunch of modern-ish games you might sorta like but will never-ever buy, Nintendo is giving you a bunch of ancient games you absolutely love but will never-ever play. That’s not a joke, people! You’re not going to play them!

Switch Online launched with 20 free NES games and will release a few more every month, presumably because it is SO hard to port them to the Switch – Nintendo has to change the ROM filename for each one and everything! The launch line-up runs the full gamut from classics like Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda, to more forgettable titles like…anything that doesn’t have “Mario” or “Zelda” in the title. Come to think of it, that pretty much sums up their current software line-up as well, doesn’t it? But I digress!

Tips For Mastering The New NHL 19 Franchise Mode Scouting System

Tips For Mastering The New NHL 19 Franchise Mode Scouting System

After years of neglect, EA Vancouver finally gave one of the older franchise mode components a much-needed overhaul in NHL 19. Gone is the inflexible system that gave you little information to go on when making draft-day selections. The new scouting system has been rebuilt from the ground up to give GMs the flexibility they need to identify and evaluate talent prior to turning in that pick card before the draft timer expires.

Your duties as general manager extend beyond draft day as well thanks to the new Fog of War mechanic. The longer you go without scouting pro teams, the less likely you are to have reliable information when it comes to making trades and signing free agents. Keeping tabs on your rivals can now spell the difference between making savvy trades that put your team on a Stanley Cup trajectory and being the next Marc Bergevin, making a series of questionable decisions that inevitably set your franchise back.    

With 20 scouts at your disposal and hundreds of prospects to research, keeping tabs on all the activities can be dizzying. I’ve spent dozens of hours poking and prodding the new system trying to maximize my returns both in free agency and during the draft. Here are some simple tips to get you ahead of the game.

Science-Fiction Weekly – Star Trek, Venom, Insomnia: The Ark

Science-Fiction Weekly – Star Trek, Venom, Insomnia: The Ark

Prepare for a Star Trek overload. In the next few years, it sounds like we'll see more of Star Trek than we currently are for Star Wars. If you thought Disney was milking the space walrus too much, just wait until you hear what Paramount and CBS are up to. Along with the second season of Star Trek Discovery, fans can look forward to a new Captain Picard television series, a Quentin Tarantino movie, Star Trek 4 (perhaps without Chris Pine), a Star Trek vs Transformers cartoon series, and now something called Short Treks.

Beginning on October 4, some of Discovery's side characters will have the chance to shine in four short 10- to 15-minute episodes on CBS All Access. The first episode is called Runway, and focuses on ensign Tilly and a visitor in need of help. The second episode, which airs on November 8, will reveal if Craft has what it takes to survive on a derelict spacecraft. On December 6, Saru's backstory will be showcased on his homeworld of Kaminar. The final episode airs on January 3 and gives Harry Mudd more screen time. You can get a sneak peek of all four episodes in the trailer below.

Watch Us Take On The Secret Post-game Boss In Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk

Watch Us Take On The Secret Post-game Boss In Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk

Labyrinth of Refrain: Coven of Dusk is a meaty dungeon-crawling soiree, with players forging superior gear and characters over many hours of synthesis and combination.

The final battle, accessible only after completing a lengthy secret dungeon and completing the main game with the six black pages obtained from other huge (and sometimes difficult to find) bosses, can be an extremely difficult encounter. The boss has abilities that can easily one shot even the hardiest characters, with a host of debuffs and other powerful attacks.

Watch us take on the battle above!
