See Link’s rune abilities in new ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ video

Not only is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild one of the most anticipated games of 2017, it’s also one of the last major titles to ever launch on the Wii U.

This awesome gaming controller turns your iPhone into a Nintendo DS

If you want to play hardcore games with killer graphics and complex stories that take week to work your way through, you’ll probably want a dedicated video game console or a pricey gaming PC.

You’ve got every conceivable genre covered, and iOS games are far more affordable than any PS4 or Xbox One games out there. The problem is the controls — there’s only so much you can do with a touchscreen.

How to hatch eggs more efficiently in Pokemon Go

At the end of the day, every Pokemon Trainer has only one goal in mind: catching them all. That’s the key tenet of any Pokemon adventure, but with Pokemon Go, it’s more difficult than ever to actually accomplish that goal.
