Valve Steam Deck is Already Back-Ordered into 2022

Late last Friday, Valve’s recently-announced Steam Deck system went up for pre-order. As is the case for virtually every piece of new hardware these days, problems quickly arose as fans hurried to place their orders. There was the usual trouble with traffic coming to Valve’s website, and scalpers made their presence known too. Even so,…

Nintendo’s New Switch Looks Cool, But…

So, Nintendo launched a new version of the Switch last week: the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model). It looks nice, and it has some nice changes. However, this isn’t an upgrade in the same vein as upgrades for previous Nintendo consoles. In fact, it’s so in substantial that I can’t help but wonder who exactly this…

Monster Hunter Stories 2 Has an Impressive Post-Launch Roadmap

Capcom, the publisher for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, recently revealed their extensive post-launch plans for the game. They’d already announced that players will get Palamute (from Monster Hunter Rise) as a ridable monster, but this latest announcement confirmed that much more will be coming to the game in the months following its…

Just Wait For The Sale

Summer is here and so is the annual Steam Summer Sale. Just like so many other gamers out there, I’ve already got plenty of games to play, but I couldn’t resist picking up some the items on my wish list. I mean, some were selling for $3 to $5! What better time to get them…

NEO: The World Ends With You Has a Demo Now

The newly remastered The World Ends With You is already available on PC, Switch and PlayStation 5, but there’s also now a demo for those who are on the fence about this notoriously unique JRPG. Actually, if there’s any game out there that’s better experienced via a demo first, it’s this one.

Metroid Dread: A Game 19 Years in the Making

As usual, Nintendo had a very strong showing at E3 2021. In fact, I’d argue that theirs was the best out of everyone who presented. Not only did they bring the games, they brought games that we’ll actually get to play relatively soon; no waiting for years and years to get our hands on these!…

Revisiting E3: Halo Infinite Multiplayer is Free-To-Play

As is tradition with E3 week, a lot of news came out over the course the event and there’s very little new to talk about. So for this week, let’s focus on one last week’s more interesting announcements: Halo Infinite’s now free-to-play multiplayer.

Making Online Friends: Easy or Not?

After taking time to talk about Destiny last week, I found myself wondering why it was that I enjoyed the game so much in the first place. This wasn’t all that difficult a question to answer, because I’ve answered it before. While Destiny had (and sometimes has) a lot going for it as a game,…

Ubisoft Officially Revealed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora…Yay?

Ubisoft’s showing at E3 2021 was more or less in line with their showings for the past several years. Despite being a major publisher, they’ve consistently had almost nothing exciting to talk about at the event. Heck, they almost never have anything exciting going on at all anymore. This year’s showcase had one bright spot…
