Nintendo Switch Update Allows for Save, User Data Transfers

about X hours ago from

The latest Nintendo Switch system update allows players to finally transfer user and save data, as well as capture video clips of certain games.

Nintendo has released the latest 4.0.0 update for the system, which finally gives Switch users the ability to transfer both their saved game and user account data from one Switch to another. In order to transfer, both systems must be updated to 4.0.0. and connected to the internet. The system a user is transferring to cannot have more than seven users.

Users can now transfer Switch accounts between systems.

RAID: WWII begins well enough. The opening movie captures the timeless appeal of a ragtag bunch of Allied soldiers casually and violently disrupting the march of the Nazi war machine. The cast of characters is familiar: a staunch British commander, a rugged American commando, the mysterious Russian soldier, and even a disgruntled Nazi defector. Bodies pile up as fire rains down, as throughout we are reminded of Hollywood hits like The Dirty Dozen and The Inglorious Basterds. It concludes with our four heroes facing off against a platoon of German soldiers, flanked by explosions and swelling music. As opening movies go, this one is slick and full of attitude.

Unfortunately, watching the opening cinematic was the highpoint of my experience with this squad-based co-op shooter in the vein of Payday (also from developer Starbreeze). From its subpar graphics to its monotonous gameplay, RAID: WWII disappoints at nearly every turn.

Destiny 2's Leviathan Prestige Raid is now live on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

"The Prestige Raid is now live. Good luck! We will be watching," Bungie said in a post on Twitter.

Wolfenstein 2's Marketing Leans Into Real-World Events

about X hours ago from

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus' marketing is intentionally tying into real-world events, Bethesda confirmed in a new interview. But developer MachineGames decided on the game's story long ago and did not intend the game to offer any specific social commentary on recent events.

Bethesda's Pete Hines spoke with Rolling Stone's Glixel about Wolfenstein II's recent marketing, which includes use of phrases like "There is only one side" and a take on the Nazi-punching meme that gained particular prominence earlier this year.

I Flew 1,750 Miles to Catch a Pokemon

about X hours ago from

This week, I traveled 1,750 miles to catch a Pokemon in Pokemon Go.

With a near-complete Pokedex, on Monday I flew to Austin, Texas to catch one of few I still needed: Corsola, a region-exclusive Pokemon who spawns in the tropics, including areas in Latin America, Africa, Australia, Asia, and, thankfully, the southernmost parts of the United States.

It sounds extreme, but as someone who has poured thousands of combined hours into open world games on consoles, there’s something thrilling about being a completionist in a game where the map is the real world. More importantly, completing the Pokedex is one of few tasks left right now in a game with a huge player base that’s growing restless waiting for new content.
