What Is and Isn’t in FIFA 18 on Nintendo Switch

FIFA 18 marks the long-running soccer franchise’s return to Nintendo systems after an absence since 2014. But the return of EA’s series, now on the NIntendo Switch, isn’t without its drawbacks.

EA has previously disclosed that FIFA 18 wouldn’t be feature-complete when compared to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game, as well as that it’s not running on EA’s internal Frostbite engine. With the game now out, and headlining one of Switch’s most-packed release weeks yet, we have a clearer picture of what is — and what isn’t — included in the Switch version of FIFA 18, as well as some explanation from previous EA interviews about these features’ respective absences.

The Legend of Zelda DLC for Monster Hunter Stories is Really Cool

The Legend of Zelda DLC for Monster Hunter Stories released September 28 entirely for free, and it includes some very beautiful, super neat stuff. The Zelda pack comes with Link’s iconic tunic and sword, a Majora’s Mask outfit for the cute feline sidekick, Navirou, and even Epona as a welcome partner.

Majora’s Mask, called the Cursed Mask in Monster Hunter Stories, even alters Navirou’s voice into an echoey, creepy version of itself reminiscent of Skull Kid’s off-putting laughs in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask.

Forza Motorsport 7 Review in Progress

My first day and a half with Forza Motorsport 7 was spent doing much the same as I’ve done with every previous instalment: attempting to move through the solo campaign while allowing myself to become occasionally distracted by experimenting with interesting new car and track combos (and with more cars and tracks than ever, there are plenty of those). Overall, it’s a fairly familiar experience thus far, and one that hasn’t deviated much from the time-tested loop established by genre kingpin Gran Turismo back in 1997. Beating opponents, winning credits, and injecting those credits back into the next race by buying better parts and collecting new cars are again the core concerns. In other words, I can confirm that this is definitely a Forza Motorsport game.

iPhone 8 Review

If it appears as though Apple is no longer trying to surprise and excite us with its annual iPhone revisions… it’s because it’s not. Now that the main iPhone has become the standard smartphone rather than a luxury item, Apple has reserved its real ambition for the upcoming iPhone X and its edge-to-edge screen. That leaves the iPhone 8 as an incremental upgrade over the iPhone 7, which was itself an incremental upgrade over the iPhone 6s, and the 6 before that.

The fact that you could easily mistake the iPhone 8 for its three-generation-old ancestor at a glance doesn’t mean it isn’t a great phone, because it absolutely is. By nearly every measure it’s the most powerful phone out there, and it matches or beats most of its competition with a high-quality camera (by smartphone standards) and a pocket full of excellent features. What it lacks in razzle-dazzle, it makes up for in high-quality construction and tested dependability.

The accessories compliment nicely the upcoming release of the Super Mario Odyssey Nintendo Switch bundle announced earlier in the month.

State of the Nintendo Switch

Welcooooooome to Nintendo Voice Chat, Episode 375! As of early September, Nintendo Switch has been on the market for half a year. We use that occasion to do a check-in on the system and rate the overall games library, the console’s core services, and discuss its performance and future prospects.

Join Jonathon Dornbush, Zach Ryan, Tom Marks (first time on NVC), and Peer Schneider, for our deep-dive into the state of Switch so far, impressions of the SNES Classic, plus a chat about another indie game that surprised us: Golf Story. Yeah, we get it — you’re trying to ignore any game that has “Golf” or “Card” in the title, but trust us that there’s more to this game than meets the eye.
