Journalist Shannon Liao revealed that during interviews for the article, the Neopets team reportedly said it is "thinking of bringing the game to the Nintendo Switch" but "declined to share further details".

Win a World of Warcraft: Shadowlands collector's edition, microphone and chair
World of Warcraft's eighth - eighth - expansion, Shadowlands, is out today! To celebrate, we've joined with Blizzard to offer two lucky winners a grand prize that Blizzard is calling a 'WOW streamer starter kit': a WOW-branded Blue Yeti microphone, a Secret Labs Titan gaming chair in either Horde or Alliance flavour, and of course Shadowlands itself in the sold-out-everywhere physical Collector's Edition. The Collector's Edition packs in an art book, four Covenant-themed pins, a mouse mat, a soundtrack key and all the content from the digital epic edition: a character boost, a mount, a hearthstone effect, an armour set, a weapon enchant, a pet and 30 days of game time. Shadowlands takes players to a new adventure in Warcraft's typically outlandish version of the afterlife, as well as a deep levelling revamp and the endgame-transforming Covenant systems. Read more
Raise rapidly mutating dogs in ex-Sims 4 dev's gloriously weird pet sim Wobbledogs
Raise rapidly mutating dogs in ex-Sims 4 dev's gloriously weird pet sim Wobbledogs
What is a dog but a wobble with infinite potential? That's the question Wobbledogs - a wonderfully odd pet sim of rapidly mutating portions - is possibly pondering as it prepares to wobble its weird pet sim self into Steam early access next year. Wobbledogs is the work of Tom Astle, a former gameplay engineer on The Sims 4, and lets players loose in a world of physically simulated - but crucially, and slightly terrifyingly - rapidly mutating dogs.

You can carry Spider-Cat around in your backpack in Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Who cares if you can pet the dog? Turns out the question we should have been asking all along is 'can you backpack the cat?', and Spider-Man: Miles Morales answers with an emphatic yes. Today's revelation comes via a new Spider-Man: Miles Morales gameplay trailer shared by Game Informer, which demos Miles' acquisition of the aforementioned cat-backpack. More specifically, it's a backpack designed to accommodate Spider-Cat - the mask-wearing, crime-fighting (and in Insomniac Games' rendition, extremely adorable) feline who, the internet tells me, served as the alternative Spidey of Earth-999 in the comics.
