Terraria: When Is It Coming to Nintendo Switch?

Visual Concepts/2K Sports NBA 2K18 is coming soon but it’s not quite out yet which gives us a chance to look at ratings and have a discussion about them.

There has always been a lot of discussion about NBA 2K player ratings as well as Madden ratings. Some of

Sonic Mania lets you have a lot of fun with the game, even before you gain access to many of the unlockable extras. Right from the beginning, you can access every level and a debug menu that will seriously let you get weird with the game. The debug mode enables full flight around every level, plus you can add a whole mess of objects to the stage at the press

How to access Sonic Mania’s level select mode

Sonic Mania is a love letter to its Sega Genesis era predecessors. The aesthetics, music and levels all feel like a blast from the past. So it’s no surprise that the game also keeps its traditions by adding a level select, sound test and debug menu right from the start.
