A while back, a hacker discovered a hidden NES game, Golf, inside the firmware of the Nintendo Switch, but someone has finally made a way to play it. Judging by the date and methods required to launch the game, it seems as though the inclusion was intended to be a hidden tribute to the former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, who passed away two years ago.

Super Smash Bros. is a series of games that were made with the local couch competitor or party game scene in mind, but over time, it has largely been played by more competitive players. The newest title, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, has had a competitive community since its release in late 2014. There are many resources out there for competitive players and spectators alike, but getting to your desired resources can require the user to manually sort through players, characters, and stages. This can be a tedious process.

SSBWorld, a website created by a team of two, aims to make it easier to connect all of these elements into an easy-to-use interface for finding videos of competitive Super Smash Bros. matches. Today, I got the opportunity to speak with Anthony Nelson, the face of SSBWorld, about how the website works and what sets it apart from the rest.

The final shipments of the retro console are being sent to retailers throughout the month of April.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now fully playable on the PC in 4K thanks to Cemu, the Wii U emulator that's been in development for a little over a year. Before the latest update, the emulator struggled to run the game at a playable frame rate, and many glitches appeared that weren't present on official hardware. Now, at version 1.7.4, Cemu is able to run the game nearly flawlessly at resolutions not possible on the Nintendo Switch or Wii U. This requires a beefy PC, though, with the video's details showing that the user was using overclocked components.

PETA has a history of targeting video games with their activism, and now the group is doing so once again. Yesterday, the organization sent a letter to Nintendo concerning the cow milking minigame in 1-2-Switch, complaining that the developer failed to include "all aspects of dairy farming." The minigame, titled Milk, requires two players to simulate milking a cow by dragging the Joy-Con controller as if they were squeezing milk from a cow's udder; however, PETA stated in their letter that Nintendo has "taken all the cruelty" out of milking cows.
