    It has been nearly a month since the release of NBA Playgrounds and yet those on Nintendo Switch are still without online play. The promise was that online would be added within days of its launch but consumers there still find themselves waiting for half the game to be delivered. Saber Interactive today announced that they will be providing Shaq Fu: A Legend Reborn for free to those with the Switch version of Playgrounds for failing to get that done.  (more…)...
