- Fans of retro gaming will no doubt be familiar with Commander Keen. You no longer need DOSBox to keep the Keen dream alive, you can now purchase Commander Keen in Keen Dreams on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
- Turns out a lot of people like Respawn's new battleroyale, Apex Legends. The game is, by all accounts fun and also very clever, and bring a lot of improvements to the crowded battleroyale space.
