    Whenever food prices want to keep revenue up but they're either not doing as well as they hoped as a company or the economy is down, they raise the price of their food but keep the portion size the same or decrease the portion size while maintaining the same price. Which of these approaches do...

    How Can Reusing the Same Hyrule Feel Fresh?

    So we know that Breath of the Wild 2 will use the same Hyrule as the original. And it makes sense. The Zelda team spent years creating the world. But many people have spent 100s of hours exploring that world, so it would feel familiar to them. So how can the experience feel fresh? The...

    People have noticed there is an extra space under the extra game styles in the Nintendo Direct for Super Mario Maker 2. What could this be? We'll definitely have one more game style represented in the game either at launch or as DLC. My guess is among Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Land 2...
