Dropping after the Game Awards last Friday, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate quickly turned it up to become the fastest-selling Smash Bros. game ever. If you're one of those who have picked it up and sunk your teeth into some Nintendo-flavoured brawling, it's time to come tell us what you think.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has it all, and whether you're a seasoned pro or a newbie coming in blind, "it all" is a lot. Every fighter from every prior Smash game is available, plus over 100 stages, a lot of wily items, a slew of quality-of-life updates and a somewhat perplexing collectables system called "Spirits." Here's how to get the most out of Smash Ultimate, which is, in my opinion, the best Smash game yet.

The First Tree is an exploration game about learning who you are. You take control of a fox in a colourful frosted forest. As the fox searches for her children, another story plays out, recounted by an unseen male narrator, that focuses on family relationships and regrets. Those thoughts come paired with intoxicating sights and powerful quiet. I have never wanted to sink into a game world quite like this before.

Several of us here at Kotaku are playing Pokemon Let's Go and collecting new adorable friends and fighters, and these little critters have inspired some poetry. What better form than the haiku to celebrate these pocket-sized monsters and their stories?

My apartment has only two things in it: video game controller cables, and a cat. OK, there's also some furniture, but most of the time, it does feel like my home life revolves around keeping my cat entertained with any object other than video game controller cables. Over time, I've learned some techniques to stop him from playing with these dangerous yet tantalising wires.

Pokémon Let’s Go revisits a lot of the same scenarios from Pokémon Red and Blue, including run-ins with members of the villainous Team Rocket organisation.

In Let’s Go, these aren’t just any Team Rocket members, it’s the notorious Jessie and James from the Pokémon anime. They’re as evil and dim-witted as they’ve always been, and as a result, they’re the funniest characters in the game.

It's Pokemon Let's Go launch day, and trainers around the world are setting off on a new adventure through Kanto with their partner Pokemon. That is, unless they can't decide between the Eevee and Pikachu versions of the game. We're here to help. You should definitely choose Eevee. Or maybe Pikachu.

On September 20 Steve Sinclair, Digital Extremes' creative director, tweeted out that its third-person shooter MMO Warframe had just gotten faster, decreasing latency by one millisecond to be precise. That was thanks to the work of Panic Button, an outside studio that in the last few years has focused on porting other companies' games (Rocket League, Wolfenstein II) to the Nintendo Switch. Panic Button has spent the last nine months helping Digital Extremes do the same for Warframe, making small improvements along the way that ended up benefiting the game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC as well as Switch.
