Nintendo was challenged to a cow-milking contest. And they accepted.

A museum in Vermont noticed how Nintendo was promoting its 1-2-Switch cow-milking game, and challenged Nintendo to an actual cow-milking contest. And being the good sports that they are, Nintendo accepted the challenge.The museum, Billings Farm & Museum of Woodstock, sent a fun letter to Nintendo claiming that Nintendo has “taken all the challenge out of milking” cows with its Switch game 1-2-Switch, which has a cow-milking mini-game.The tongue-in-cheek letter added:“We have 30 prize-winning Jersey milking cows that we milk twice a day, and it is NEVER that easy. We also think that you guys look pretty slow.”You can check out the letter below. Nintendo accepted the challenge and will stop by the farm next week. We’ll have to wait and see how they do at actual cow-milking. READ FULL STORY AT NINTENDOTODAY!

Splatoon 2 Lobby 'Easter Egg' Lets You DJ While You Wait

If you’re playing one of the “global testfire” demos for Splatoon 2 this weekend, don’t forget to take a few moments and jam and create some tunes while on the match-making screen. Advertisement As many people have discovered on Youtube, the game has an easter egg that lets players mess with the pitch of the lobby music and also add their own warbly sounds by rolling the Joy-Con analog sticks and punching the D-pad buttons. You can find one of the more expertly crafted jam sessions posted over at Polygon. The right Joy-Con’s Y, X, B, and A even add hauntingly modulated voice samples, in case you wanted to channel DJ Octavio, the first game’s main antagonist, by lacing your melody with the cries of respawning Inkling kids. And if you’re anything like me, you’ll be respawning a lot as you attempt to navigate the game’s unintuitive motion controls The music you can create is more of a fun distraction than anything else, like stretching Mario’s face in Super Mario 64. Then again, given humanity’s collective creativity and industriousness, it’s possible a modern day musical genius will compose something astounding READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

Splatoon 2's Snipers Are Pulling Off Incredible Shots

Image credit: Nintendo This weekend’s global testfire for Splatoon 2 is live, and players are already picking apart the new changes in the squid-shooter sequel. A new change to the Charger is letting snipers hold their charges while squid-swimming, leading to some spectacular highlight reels. Advertisement Splatoon’s gameplay revolves around winning a turf war by inking the most territory with your shots, while also blasting the other team’s squid-kids with a variety of Super Soaker-style weaponry. The Charger is Splatoon’s version of a sniper rifle — long-range and a one-hit splat, its major drawback is having to build up a charge for each shot. In the past, you would lose your charge if you switched into squid mode (the squid-kids of Splatoon can morph like Animorphs, putting away their ink-guns to swim in their team’s ink at high speed). Advertisement In the testfire this weekend, Charger users can retain their charge while in squid form. This has led to some Call of Duty-esque highlight reels popping up of some of the better players zipping around maps, popping out to blast opponents with a stored-up READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

GameStop says it’s expecting Switch shortages all year

GameStop has been highly optimistic about the Switch, even going so far as to say that it could eclipse the Wii in the long run. Now in a new post-earnings call with investors, GameStop chief operating officer Tony Bartel had tons more praise for the Nintendo Switch.“The demand is incredibly strong for this. As soon as we get any in our stores, it’s out within hours. We anticipate we’re going to be chasing supply this entire year.”Bartel’s opinion of the Switch is certainly higher thanks to the huge demand, but Bartel attributes that demand to Nintendo’s effort at providing more high-quality games within the first year of the console’s life than it did with the Wii U.While the early comparisons to Wii shortage bodes well for Nintendo as a company, if consumers feel as though they can’t get the device in a timely manner they may lose interest in it. Nintendo needs to be doing all it can to make sure it can keep the system in stock at brick and mortar retailers as well as online like Amazon if it wants to keep people interested in upcoming games like Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, both of which…

Some people reporting D-Pad problems with the Pro Controller

While it’s been nearly as hard to find a Switch Pro Controller as it has the actual console, it seems that some people are reporting problems with the D-Pad on the controller. A cursory search of YouTube reveals that several people have made videos about the issues they’re experiencing, which seem to be the Up and Down buttons also triggering when you press left and right. [embedded content] While it’s hard to tell what’s going on with these videos, there are also text reports of issues that people are experiencing with their Pro Controllers. In a reddit thread titled, “Pro Controller dpad not that great” several users expressed their dissatisfaction with how the D-Pad on the controller works. Mine constantly recognizes up input when i’m pressing left. 🙁 I’m glad it’s not just me. I’m very gentle with my controllers and I noticed the dpad acting up after a few hours of shovel knight. Casting magic when I’m trying to attack was super annoying. My dpad also clicks a little and just isn’t as accurate as I’d like. Same issue here. Makes it difficult to play Shovel Knight. Just tried the same thing on a Wii READ FULL STORY AT…
