What’s it like to attend RTX Sydney if you don’t really know that much about Rooster Teeth?

Geek and gaming conventions are pretty magical places.

RTX doesn’t have same energy as that of a PAX. It’s a different vibe, cruder, in line with the kind of scatological humour Rooster Teeth excels at. These attendees are rowdier, less patient and a great deal snarkier than your average PAX-goer. This is not to suggest that they are unpleasant, nothing could be further from the truth. On the whole, everyone I met and spoke to was very warm, friendly and having the time of their life.

Nintendo Switch: What’s it like to use the Joy-Con?

We spoke a little in our hands-on event wrap-up piece about how it felt to actually wield the Joy-Con controllers in their many different configurations, but in this piece we intend to go more in-depth. What works, what doesn’t and where we think there’s room for even more exciting ways to use the Joy-Con. Continue reading Nintendo Switch: What’s it like to use the Joy-Con?

We just spent three hours with the Nintendo Switch. Here’s how it went.

Shortly before Christmas, we at The Iris offices received a very exciting email. Nintendo Australia was inviting us (among a slew of other local games media) to Melbourne to spend some hands-on time with their newest console, the Nintendo Switch. 24 hours after Nintendo gave the world a substantial look at what the new machine can do, we got to see it and try it for ourselves.
