Namco Museum - file size

Wondering how much space Namco Museum will take up on your Switch? You might expect it to be a modest file size, considering how most of the games are quite old. Somehow Bandai Namco got the file size up to 876MB. I guess it has to do with the inclusion of Pac-Man Vs. and those arcade borders!

Square-Enix kicks off Dragon Quest XI collaboration with Despicable Me 3 (plus make your own slime)


No, this isn't a joke. Square-Enix has partnered up for a collaboration with Despicable Me 3 in Japan. There's Minion-themed slimes, a quick cameo of Dragon Quest slimes in the Despicable Me 3 music video above, and more to come. You can even make your own slime (non-Minion related) here. I've never seen a Minions-related movie, so I'll let you guys make your own jokes!

Kickstarter - BitLounger L & XL Game Storage System

We have been making prototypes in some form or another since 2013. Expensive custom foam inserts, 3D printed models, plastic prototypes, acrylic samples, you name it. We landed on the BitLounger XL System. After building numerous prototypes of the XL's 4-tray layout, we decided to also add a 2-tray layout as well, which is where the BitLounger L model came to be. With the removable, modular insert trays compatible across both units it makes it easier to adjust your display as your collection changes over time.

The insert trays are the key to what make the BitLounger L and XL special. With the modular design you can mix and match trays in any order you see fit. Want all NES games? No problem. Have an 80-cartridge Gameboy Color collection you want to show off? Have at it! The modular trays provide you the flexibility to create your own custom piece.
