How Long Does It Take To Finish The Legend Of Zelda: Link's Awakening On Switch?

Delivering a little one-two punch, Nintendo has released two big products today: the new Nintendo Switch Lite, and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. The new Zelda game turned out to be a great revival of a game that's otherwise been isolated to the old Game Boy and Game Boy Color handhelds, making this new release the best way to experience the unusual and delightful adventure set outside the Kingdom of Hyrule.

If the game is new to you, and your most recent Zelda experience is Breath of...

Zelda: Link's Awakening Has A Claw Machine And It's Kind Of Evil

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is now on Nintendo Switch in all its remake-y glory. One of the coolest (or weirdest) things about Link's Awakening is that it features various Mushroom Kingdom characters, like Goombas, Chain Chomps, and Yoshi in doll form. The Yoshi doll is of particular significance, as it kicks off a classic Zelda-style item trading quest. Or it would, if you could actually get it.

In Mabe Village, there's a building that houses the "trendy game," a UFO catcher...

Borderlands 3 Director Says More Characters Aren't Coming

Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel both added more playable characters post-launch, but don't expect the same from Borderlands 3. At a Q&A near the end of the Borderlands Show stream, game director Paul Sage ruled out the possibility and explained his reasoning.

According to Sage, Gearbox's data from previous expansions has shown that most people don't stick with additional characters, and so the decision was made to differentiate the four main characters through different kinds of...

Zelda: Link's Awakening Heart Piece Guide: All Locations

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake is finally out, allowing a new generation of players to experience a classic Nintendo game with a fresh coat of paint. The graphics aren't the only new addition, though, as the remake implements several quality-of-life improvements and new collectibles to discover--including more heart pieces.

For those new to Zelda, heart pieces are collectibles seen in most games in the series that allow you to earn a larger health pool for Link. Finding one...

Pokemon Go: Last Chance To Catch Mewtwo

Pokemon Go's final wave of Ultra Bonuses is still live. Not only did it introduce the first Gen 5 Pokemon to the game (as well as a new evolutionary item called the Unova Stone), it also brought the Legendary Mewtwo back to Raids. However, your time to catch the Legendary Psychic-type is running out.

Mewtwo is scheduled to leave the game again at 1 PM PT / 4 PM ET on Monday, September 23, so you have until then to encounter it in five-star Raids. This time, the Legendary Pokemon knows the...

Cyberpunk 2077's Setting Will Be A "Unique Take" For The Franchise

While creating Night City, the setting for Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt Red wanted to create a "unique take" on the Cyberpunk franchise. This is why the upcoming RPG takes place in a primarily sunny locale as opposed to the gloomy, rain-soaked settings traditionally seen in the cyberpunk genre.

"When we showed the demo last year, people were surprised at first that it was so sunny," Cyberpunk 2077 concept art coordinator Marthe Jonkers said in an interview with GamesIndustry.Biz. "They expected...

The Final Fantasy XIV Devs Gave Their All For Shadowbringers

It's been a long road for Final Fantasy XIV. Many folks who know Square Enix's MMORPG are aware that it had to reinvent itself back in 2013, which subsequently saved the game and led to overwhelming success. But that wasn't enough. The FFXIV team has outdone itself with the latest expansion, Shadowbringers, which has cemented the game as one of the greatest stories told in the long-running franchise. And it further disproves the perception that FFXIV is simply the MMO that bears the name of...
