It’s been a long week, but the weekend is coming up and we’ve got a bounty of new games to help you unwind. For your enjoyment, here’s 5 calming minutes of Mario dancing from Super Mario Odyssey, complete with waterfall.

If you've tried playing a retro console on a modern HDTV, you may not have liked what you saw — smeary, stretched images that are a far cry from the sharp chunky blocks of yesteryear. Luckily, there's a better way for purists to get a crystal clear image that doesn't involve buying an old CRT TV.

Today as part of an April Fool's prank, Google updated Google Maps for iOS and Android to include Pokémon. Let's try to find all of them!
