'Go Vacation' Brings Wii Sports-Like Games To The Nintendo Switch

When the Nintendo Switch launched, we're sure that there were some who were surprised that Nintendo did not launch some sports-like game with it unlike what they did with the Wii and Wii U. Instead Nintendo chose to launch 1-2 Switch as a way of showcasing what the console could do.

However if Wii Sports-like games are something you're interested in, you'll be pleased to learn that Go Vacation has recently been launched on the console. Developed by Bandai Namco, this is a game that contains a variety of sporting events that players will be able to enjoy with each other with local multiplayer features.

Subaru Viziv Tourer Concept Brings Back The Wrx Wagon In Geneva

Subaru Viziv Tourer Concept brings back the WRX wagon in Geneva

Last month, we ran a dimly-lit teaser image depicting the taillight of the new Subaru Viziv Tourer concept, slated for a Geneva Motor Show reveal. Now the wraps have come off the handsomely bronze concept, and it all looks good for a future WRX wagon design. The second-generation wagon was replaced by a hatchback variant, so there hasn't been a WRX wagon for 10 years now. The Viziv Tourer is a welcome Subaru return to longer roofs in this segment, albeit with slight crossover flavors. A production version is still expected for a 2020 launch.

The taillights cut into wide wheel arches, but the sides are slightly less bulging than with the Viziv Performance STI Concept shown at the Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this year: If you get your ruler out, the Tourer is 20mm narrower. It all looks very production ready, just lacking door handles and side mirrors — and perhaps it could use some slightly bigger headlights. The concept's glasshouse is tinted heavily enough not to reveal anything from the interior.

Hmd Brings Back Another Nokia Classic With The Nokia 8110

HMD Brings Back Another Nokia Classic With The Nokia 8110

We know that many were surprised when HMD Global decided that one of the Nokia phones that they would be bringing back to the market would be the Nokia 3310, but it turned out to be something of a hit, especially in markets that still use feature phones. Now it looks like the company is back with yet another classic from Nokia's portfolio in the form of the Nokia 8110.

For those unfamiliar, the Nokia 8110 was launched in 1996 and what made it such a unique device was its banana-like shape and the fact that it had a slideout cover that not only protected the keypad, but also allowed users to answer calls in that manner. It was also made more popular thanks to its appearance in The Matrix in 1999.
