Heroes of the Storm is getting yet another assassin in Valeera

The Heroes of the Storm team sure does love its Warcraft characters and the assassin role. Thankfully, so do I! (To a certain extent, anyway.) The latest combatant, Valeera Sanguinar, checks both boxes. After a round of teasing over the pa...   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

Much to some fans' dismay, Miiverse and StreetPass, Nintendo's rather novel communication systems for Wii U and 3DS, weren't mentioned last night during the extensive Switch presentation. If that absence left you anxious about the fate of t...   read

By E3 2008, the Wii had just passed the Xbox 360 in US sales, despite having come out a year later. With the PS3 flagging, it was Nintendo's race to win. And then we met Ravi. Riding high, Nintendo came into E3 2008 with absolutely nothing...   read

Is Donkey Kong king of New York in the new Mario?

Some more Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild minutia (Minish-uh?) for you: the game is 13gb on Wii U and 13.4 on Nintendo Switch. They're both out March 3 and I doubt the .4gb will influence which one you buy. It is worth remembering, thou...   read
