Sony fans wouldn’t have liked that the company didn’t release provide confirmed release dates for the 2018 PS4 exclusives that it unveiled at the E3 2017 gaming expo in Los Angeles earlier this month. On the other hand, Microsoft was forthcoming with the release dates for many of the exclusive titles for the Xbox One. Sony merely said that the new games would be out next year, but we now […]
When the Nintendo Switch was launched, many were a little skeptical about the console’s capabilities especially given its specs which seemed like a souped up version of the NVIDIA SHIELD tablet. Then again Nintendo’s games were never really meant to be ultra realistic to begin with.
When the folks at Bungie first announced Destiny 2, it was revealed that the game would be arriving on console first before being released on the PC. It was unclear why that was the case, but during an interview with Polygon at E3, Bungie and Vicarious Visions revealed the reason why and that is because they wanted to get it right.
Microsoft first hinted at the possibility of its Xbox Live Avatars being revamped back in 2015. Two job listings were posted at that time which suggested that the company wanted to bring its avatars to the next level. Hints about the new avatars were dropped from time to time but no definitive announcement was made. Microsoft has now confirmed that the new Xbox Live Avatars will be released later this […]
As expected during E3 2017, there were plenty of games that were revealed during the event, but if there was one title that was conspicuously missing, it was Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us 2. The game was officially announced towards the end of 2016, which meant that E3 would have been a perfect venue for the developers to share some updates and show what they’ve got so far.
In 2016, the folks at Konami announced a new Metal Gear game in the form of Metal Gear Survive. What makes this game interesting isn’t so much the gameplay itself, but rather this marks the first Metal Gear title that will be released by Konami following Hideo Kojima leaving the studio.
With every new generation of console released, the old one gets left behind. This is pretty much true of all technology, but what we’re seeing Microsoft do is try to keep some of its older stuff alive through backwards compatibility, where the Xbox One is capable of playing games from the Xbox 360 and also the original Xbox.
With video game franchises, Metroid is one of the classics out there today and over the years without fail we’ve seen how Nintendo has tried to keep the franchise alive by including Samus in games like Super Smash Bros. Now it looks like fans of Metroid have something to look forward to in Metroid Prime 4.
In case the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Cons or the Pro controller aren’t really doing it for you, you’re in luck because accessory maker 8BitDo has announced a bunch of new gaming controller peripherals that are pretty obviously aimed at the Nintendo Switch, which you can see in the photo above.
We have to admit that when the Nintendo Switch was launched, we were surprised that Mario was not among the launch titles. Instead the biggest name that was launched with the console was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which on hindsight was a pretty great choice as it did score fantastic reviews.
We know that there are many, many gamers who are looking forward to the time when Nintendo announces Pokemon for the Switch. So far we’ve come pretty close with Pokken Tournament DX, but it seems that Nintendo was waiting for the Nintendo Direct event to reveal what gamers have been asking for because the company has announced that a new core Pokemon RPG is in the works for the Switch.
As you might heard, some rather big news came out of E3 in the form of Minecraft where Microsoft announced that they would be making the game cross-platform compatible. This means that gamers across multiple platforms would be able to play the game together, whether they be on mobile, the Nintendo Switch, or the Xbox One.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released alongside the Nintendo Switch a couple of months ago, although it seems that it didn’t take players long before they finished the entire game. Given that the game is an open world concept, unlike older Zelda titles, it is surprising that many gamers have already blazed through the game’s content.
When you look at games designed for the PS4/Xbox One, they tend to be more “serious” in nature, while Nintendo games on the other hand are more lighthearted and are designed for quick gaming sessions. Rocket League seemed like it was a good fit but yet it never found its way onto a Nintendo console, at least until now.
While Mario is probably one of Nintendo’s most easily-recognized characters and franchises, there are still quite a few characters that gamers might be familiar with, one of which is none other than Kirby. For fans of Kirby, you’ll be pleased to learn that Nintendo has not forgotten about it and have since announced a new Kirby game for the Nintendo Switch.
As far as the current-gen consoles are concerned, it seems that Sony’s PS4 is leading the pack as during E3 2017, Sony announced that they have managed to sell 60.4 million units of the PS4 to customers worldwide to date. This is double the amount from when Sony announced their sales back in November 2015 where they had sold 30 million units.
With Microsoft having Forza as its Xbox racing game, Sony’s answer to that would be in the form of the Gran Turismo franchise. Now the latest title in the franchise would be Gran Turismo Sport which was announced last year, and was also slated for a release in November 2016. Clearly that did not happen.
There is no shortage of gaming monitors in the market today. We’ve seen a couple of new models being announced this week on the sidelines of the E3 2017 gaming convention in Los Angeles. Companies like Samsung have come out with gaming monitors that look absolutely bonkers but are interesting enough to capture your fancy. LG is out with one of its own, the company has launched a new 34 […]
There’s a lot of anticipation surrounding the latest addition to the long-running Call of Duty franchise. Activision confirmed that the next title is going to be called Call of Duty: WW2 and that it’s going to be based on the events of the second world war. It has finally released the Call of Duty: WW2 multiplayer reveal trailer at E3 2017 so that fans can see what sort of a […]
Alienware has unveiled a new lineup of gaming accessories at the E3 2017 gaming convention in Los Angeles. The new lineup includes a gaming monitor, new mice, and keyboards. The Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor may not be as swanky as some of the other gaming monitors that we’ve seen at E3 this year but it’s certainly going to get the job done for someone who is not looking to spend […]
