The Witcher 3's Switch port started in super rough shape

It feels like a small miracle that Saber Interactive was able to port The Witcher 3 to Switch. CD Projekt's best game thus far is huge, beautifully detailed, and full of fast combat. There were some technical hiccups on PS4 and Xbox On...

Behold: Pokemon Sword and Shield's Gigantamax Snorlax

Pokemon Sword and Shield is just coming out of the gate, but is doing insanely well sales-wise. Game Freak is looking to keep that momentum going with regular updates, which, as we now know, includes regular raid events with extra forms. We...

The Elder Scrolls: Blades won't have chest timers on Switch

We aren't getting any Elder Scrolls on Nintendo Switch this year after all. Bethesda has pushed back its plans to bring The Elder Scrolls: Blades to Switch until "early 2020" as other matters – namely, "the most extensive update" yet ...

Unsurprisingly, Pokemon Sword is selling better than Shield

Anecdotally, there was an overwhelming amount of support for Pokemon Sword over Shield during the new generational reveal, and it seems like the sales data supports that. Breaking down the Japanese sales numbers even further, Dengeki O...
