Nioh has gone gold, more info coming this week

Nioh, my most anticipated game of 2017 currently ("currently," because who knows, maybe From Software will announce another Souls game or we'll get a Devil May Cry 5 at E3!), has gone gold. That means that it's done and dusted, an...   read

Some Switch games won't force motion controls, including Arms

One of the things I loved about the Wii U is how much Nintendo backpedaled on motion. Sure some games had it as an option to aim with the GamePad's gyroscope, but compare say, Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze's smooth button-based rolling as op...   read

Nioh's director: 'This is meant to be a masocore game, we consciously avoided making it easy'

I remember walking by the Nioh video reel at TGS in 2015 and thinking "why isn't this playable?" It was one of the most attractive games at the show, but at the time it had just been introduced by Team Ninja, and we knew very little about i...   read

The Nintendo Switch doesn't have a pack-in game so it could reach the $299 pricepoint

So, 1-2 Switch. You know, that milking mini-game that looks like it should be a pack-in? Well, it's $50. And when you plunk down $300 on your new Switch console, you won't get anything else with it. Speaking to GameSpot, Nintendo of America...   read

The Nintendo Switch will support external storage for up to 2TB, when the pricey cards actually exist

Speaking to Game Informer, Nintendo finally let people know what the maximum amount of storage will be for the Nintendo Switch, which ships with 32GB -- and...drum roll...it's 2TB! That's quite a bit of space for non-proprietary micro SDXC ...   read

Reggie: Nintendo Switch won't have shortages, NES Classic getting 'continued' stock in the US

Nintendo has had a "shortage" problem for years in the US. The company did it with the Wii. It did with with every single special edition they've ever made, from systems to games (remember Fire Emblem Fates, and how that single cartridge so...   read

Hold your blocks: Minecraft is also coming to the Switch

Minecraft just hit the Wii U fairly recently (in the grand scheme of Minecraft's lengthy lifespan, that is), but like most things that went to die on the Wii U, it's also coming to the Switch so you can buy it again like it didn't just...   read

Nintendo confirms that Zelda: Breath of the Wild hits Wii U at the same time as Switch

Yesterday was all about the Nintendo Switch. So much so, that the publisher neglected to even really mention the Wii U, relegating it to the status of that distant relative that you aren't even aware of until someone mentions it. But they c...   read

All of the Nintendo Switch March launch games in one place

Are you ready to pick up a brand new Nintendo Switch at launch! Well you better prepare for all of those launch games -- wait. If you actually look at the fine print, a ton of that presentation isn't actually coming out until later in the y...   read

Maybe the My Nintendo Store will be better than the current digital discount junkyard

My Nintendo has failed to impress day in and day out, and "updates" or news usually involve a new bad discount of some kind. I think they were banking too heavily on people getting swept up in Miitomo and Super Mario Run, in the sense ...   read

Here's what the Nintendo Switch in-store GameStop pre-order situation is like in the US

Having just returned from pre-ordering my Nintendo Switch and Zelda Special Edition, I have a better idea of what the in-store situation is like at GameStop. Going off of calls and experiences with roughly 10 stores, and an inside source at...   read

The price of the Nintendo Switch, and all its innards, is too damn high

Amidst all of the hype of the Nintendo Switch presentation, let's break one thing down -- this thing is going to be one of the priciest Nintendo consoles yet if you actually look at what everything costs. Now, $300 for the console itse...   read

Here's everything that happened at Nintendo's big Switch reveal

Well uh, that went longer than expected. Although not a whole lot wowed me outside of the Zelda stuff, we got what we really wanted with the Nintendo Switch presentation -- a price, and a date. So much isn't actually coming until later...   read

Skyrim script extender aims to save mods that broke with the Special Edition

Final Fantasy XIV is getting a XV collab, and I hope it involves big jackets

Although people are quick to dump on Lightning, she had a really great collaboration with Final Fantasy XIV this past year, and I'd love to see more limited time crossovers like that without going overboard (generally the team just sti...   read

Rocket League hits one billion games played in just under two years

Rocket League references are just about everywhere at this point -- it's creeped its way into pop culture, and isn't going anywhere. And a recent stat from developer Psyonix (which I still confuse with Psygnosis, RIP) backs that up -- ...   read

Nintendo Download: F-Zero X

I don't have any clever words of wisdom for this week -- there's literally just one game apiece for the Wii U and 3DS. F-Zero X for the former, and Shift DX for the latter. That's it! It's a shame Nintendo hasn't done anything wit...   read

These Nioh screens are magnificent

Man, Disney World used to have a badass mythology museum in the Japan area of Epcot, which showcased a bunch of creatures like Tengu, Kappa, and Kitsune. Now it's a "Kawaii Museum," which is still neat, but the former was just so wonderfull...   read

That King of Fighters XIV graphical overhaul is here

Danganronpa V3 is out this week in Japan

Danganronpa might be niche, but it's a big enough hit in Japan and western regions to warrant spinoffs, an anime, a VR game, and now, a third proper iteration. That actually launches in Japan tomorrow on January 12 as Danganronpa V3: Killin...   read
