Just a few short years ago, Nintendo seemed to be falling far behind its competitors in the console market. With three straight years of operating losses and historically low Wii U sales, Nintendo's sales, profits, and shares were all in the gutter. The situation today couldn't possibly be any more different, as Nintendo has surged to its strongest position in a decade. In fact, analysts are now predicting that Nintendo's share of the market will surpass Microsoft's this year.

No matter what EA does in the future, fans will never forget the incredibly controversial launch of Star Wars Battlefront II. The company has been under fire ever since the game's initial launch. The controversy has sparked a huge conversation surrounding the ethics and legality of loot boxes.

EA's Star Wars Battlefront II drew widespread backlash last year for its predatory "pay to win" implementation of in-game gambling, with the selling point multiplayer mode's progression system, high cost of unlocking popular franchise icons, and sparingly awarded rewards all revolving around loot-boxes and microtransactions. The controversy on Electronic Arts' hands grew so dire, to the point it attracted both media and government attention, that the publisher suspended in-game payments before the game's public launch.

Unfortunately, the possibility of Battlefront II's microtransactions returning since remained, and now it's official. Hit the jump for more information.

When it comes to tight, difficult platformers, Super Meat Boy may be the most prominent example, but there are others just as worthy of the descriptor. One such game is Celeste, a full-fledged adventure from Matt Thorson (of Towerfall fame) and Noel Berry. You may be familiar with an earlier PICO-8 game of the same name, also by Thorson and Berry, and it is this version that serves as the foundation on which Celeste is built.

Come journey with me up a mountain as I discuss why Celeste is one of the best platformers I've played in years.
