This might seem completely useless and gratuitous on Nintendo’s part, but this feature for the Nintendo Switch is one of those design things that produces satisfying feedback for users.

When you slide the Joy-Cons into place on the...

Video games, like physical video games, don’t sell out too often. It was newsworthy that Nioh sold out online, but that was almost understandable given the surprise success of the game and the relative size of the publisher.

Zelda. This franchise is a mainstay for plenty of gaming fans. For me, it’s the first I can remember playing with my dad. That goes back to the original The Legend of Zelda on NES. My dad picked up the game and a player’s guide, and we sat in front of our old TV (the kind with dials) and played it daily until we beat it. We did that again for The Adventures of Link, a game that I still...
