Ever since I found Hotline Miami 1, I fell in love with Devolver Digital. I love what they stand for, the games they publish and support, and of course, their on point humor. You can look at any game and just know if Devolver published that. When the WhatsItTech team went to PAX East 2019 and saw Katana Zero, we knew we had to play and after we did, we knew we had to buy, it was just that simple. Katana Zero is high octane energy, dark humor, twists and turns that’d make M Night Shyamalan giddy, and a soundtrack that’d make any synthwave lover gush. The artwork and aesthetic are also impeccable. Let’s cut through Katana, shall we?

Psyonix’s Rocket League has broken a lot of boundaries in the gaming world. They’ve broken into the E-Sports world with their infectiously competitive game of ‘soccer cars’, and they’ve achieved cross-network play between their various platforms. The premise of Rocket League is simple, you drive a car that is rocket powered and hit the ball into the goal. The game is a cross between soccer and demolition derby, allowing you to fly through the air with boosts in order to score points in the five minute match. But how does this game do on the Nintendo Switch? Continue reading Rocket League for the Switch – Battle Cars On The Go!
I purchased my Switch with grey Joy-Cons, which I came to regret over time. The blue and red Joy-Cons give the Nintendo Switch an iconic look akin to the Gamecube purple. Unfortunately, the blue and red Joy-Con set is frequently out-of-stock and also expensive. The consequence of fitting all those gyros and sensors into the controllers is $80. There is, however, a cheaper way to decorate my Joy-Cons: silicone covers. Silicone joy-con covers are popular and all over Amazon. They come in a variety of styles and even sport an ergonomic shape for comfort. I purchased a red & blue pair of Mayskey Joy-Con Gel Guards for $8 because it had positive reviews. Truthfully, I could’ve picked up a set from anyone.

We put cases on our smartphones because they are fragile and expensive pieces of portable technology. Shouldn’t we follow the same philosophy for the Nintendo Switch? While I don’t think people walk around with their Switch like a phone, it is more likely to be in the hands of young children. So, with that in mind, it pays to invest in the system’s longevity with a protective case of its own.

I appreciate Nintendo’s Joy-Con design. With L and R buttons on the side, a single Joy-con becomes a controller for certain games. This allows consumers to play with a friend straight out of the box. Innovative? Yes. But I doubt many will describe using one as comfortable. They are too small for the hands of most young adults and above to play effortlessly. This discomfort can impact performance and overall enjoyment. I have played with many friends who bemoan the instances of having to use only one Joy-con.
