Watch Conan and Will Arnett duke it out in ‘ARMS’ on Nintendo Switch

Clueless Gamer: Conan and Will Arnett

There's no better way for two adults to work through their issues than to punch each other repeatedly in a video game. That's exactly what Conan O'Brien and Will Arnett did on the latest installment of Clueless Gamer, marking the first appearance of the Nintendo Switch on Conan's show.

Nintendo swears it’s not faking Switch shortages

nintendo switch shortage

When a new gadget is in short supply there are only two possibilities for why that is the case: Either the company simply can't make enough to satisfy the consumer lust for the product, or the company is intentionally bottlenecking its shipments in order to artificially create a sense of demand. Plenty of companies have been accused of such things in the past, and while Nintendo is no stranger to being on the receiving end of those accusations — especially with the original Wii — the company is now swearing that the sold-out Switch console isn't a product of artificial demand.

Nintendo has good news for frustrated fans who still can’t find a Switch

Where To Buy Nintendo Switch Online

If you're among the legions of Nintendo fans who continue to be frustrated by the fact that the company's hot new Nintendo Switch video game console is still nowhere to be found in stores, you've got two options. First, you can pay a premium and head over to Amazon, where the Nintendo Switch with Gray Joy-Con and the Nintendo Switch with Neon Blue and Neon Red Joy-Con are both in stock right now with Prime shipping. Your second option is to come to terms with the fact that the Switch won't be in stock in stores anytime soon, and give up for the time being.

There may be a light at the end of the tunnel, however. Nintendo has finally broken its silence and confirmed that production of its Switch console is ramping up, with shipments set to increase sooner than you might think.

Nintendo Switch: GameStop

As exciting as the Nintendo E3 2017 Spotlight showcase was, it was somewhat undercut by the fact that thousands of consumers still haven't been able to get their hands on a Switch console. Supply of Switch consoles has been severely constrained since launch back in March, but consumers are going to have another chance to grab one this week as GameStop has announced a stock replenishment.

Nintendo Switch’s dumb dock gets beaten by hyper-portable Nyko option

One of the Nintendo Switch's biggest issues is about to get fixed—by Nyko, of all companies.

You read that correctly. The company best known for unofficial gamer accessories like rubbery controller condoms and bulky console carrying cases has emerged with a rare burst of engineering genius: the Portable Docking Kit. It's basically the Switch Dock, only a lot smaller—maybe a tad smaller than a deck of cards.

Nyko announced this Nintendo Switch accessory during E3, but I wanted to be sure it was worth recommending, so I stopped by the company's E3 booth and demanded to see it in action. In the process, I regretfully ordered a grown man to dive into a pit full of colored, plastic balls.
