    ARMS Might Be the Most Competitive Game Nintendo Has Ever Made

    From the beginning, Nintendo has made it clear that the Switch was intended neither as a tablet nor as a direct competitor to the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One.

    A lot of us (full disclosure: me included) got a package last weekend or headed to the nearest store that does video games — the Switch, Nintendo’s latest video game console, is here. It’s not in the Guinness Book of World Records (I guess, I didn’t check), but if there was a record for most […]
