Back in late May, the quirky alternative rock band, Weezer, released a massive hit cover of Toto’s “Africa” after a campaign of fans who wanted to see their favorite rock band perform their favorite song. The campaign, led by Twitter user, “@weezerafrica,” reached it’s milestone success after Weezer finally released the hit song “Africa” following a cover of Toto’“Rosanna.”

Weezer’s frontman, Rivers Cuomo, discussed in many past interviews of a future project titled The Black Album. The Black Album was planned on being a successor to 2016’s hit The White Album, while contrasting itself from White’s beachy rock themes for a darker urban theme.

Cuomo stated, “The next album is going to feel like an urban environment, night-time and gritty and hopefully a lot more modern sounds, synthesized sounds, samples maybe. I like to break away from the distorted power-chord thing but it’s hard ‘cos it works so well.”

Due to 2017’s Pacific Daydream and “Africa” creating a delay for  The Black Album, many fans were left anxious for Weezer to unveil it’s new material centering it’s mysterious twelfth studio album.

This past Thursday, however, Weezer finally gave it’s fans a taste of what is to come for the upcoming LP. The single, “Can’t Stop The Hustle,” takes listeners into the dark and funky groove of Rivers Cuomo’s mind.

This past Thursday, Nintendo’s planned online service, “Nintendo Online,” launched with mostly positive reception among fans. Online services have been free ever since the launch of the Wii in 2006 and as a result, gamers were shocked once Nintendo unveiled it’s plans for a paid service early this year. Services such as Microsoft’s “Xbox Live Gold” and Sony’s “Playstation Plus” have received a lot of backlash for having expensive fees for their own online subscription services.

The service will allow it’s players to use online functionality in compatible games such as the popular hits, “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe,” “Splatoon 2,” “Arms,” and yet-to-be released games such as the highly anticipated “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.” on the Nintendo Switch.

Alongside the basic ability to play your online games with people all around the world, Nintendo included “Cloud Saves” which is a function that allows players to backup any of their lost save files for the games that they own. If a Switch owner loses or breaks their current Switch console, they will be able to recover their save files from the Cloud that is connected to their purchased account.

Even though many people are upset with Nintendo’s decision to charge it’s players for online services, most fans are happy that Nintendo’s online system is relatively affordable compared to it’s competitors’. Microsoft and Sony charge $59.99 for their own subscription services. A purchase of a full year subscription to Nintendo Online costs $19.99. It’s other options include a one-month subscription for $3.99 and a three-month subscription for $7.99. Compared to the competition of online subscription services, Nintendo’s prices are relatively affordable.

Nintendo is also currently offering a free selection of 20 classic NES games with a subscription to the service. Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Tecmo Bowl are among the list of launch titles available to subscribers of the service.

It is confirmed that more NES games will be added to the service in the upcoming months. Solomon’s Key, NES Open Tournament Golf, and Super Dodge Ball will be available in October Metroid, Mighty Bomb Jack, and TwinBee will be available in November.

Earlier this month, Nintendo uploaded a video showcasing all of these features and everything they want fans to know about their service. Click on the video below to watch the official overview of Nintendo Online.
