Valve Steam Deck is Already Back-Ordered into 2022

Late last Friday, Valve’s recently-announced Steam Deck system went up for pre-order.

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…

Capcom, the publisher for Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, recently revealed their extensive post-launch plans for the game.

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.

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.

This year’s showcase had one bright spot…

So It Looks Like the Borderlands Movie is Really Happening

When it comes to video game movies, there are basically two kinds: those that are rumored for years and never get made and those that dive into theaters out of nowhere. I’d like to say that there are good and bad video game movies too, but I’ve yet to see one I could honestly call…

Switch Pro is Looking Much More Real, Is it Good Thing Though?

Rumors of a Switch Pro have been swirling around in some form for at least a year or so now, but they’ve never really proven to hold much water. That is, they didn’t until a few days ago. A listing for a Nintendo Switch Pro popped up on Amazon late last week, seemingly confirming the…

More Details Arise for The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes

Looks like QuakeCon is Going to be Digital-Only Again

Another day, another convention announcing that they’ll be “online-only” again in 2021. This time the convention in question is QuakeCon, the convention for fans of classic shooters, ID and of course Quake. The announcement came a couple of weeks ago, with the organizers basically saying that they’re doing this in the interest of staff and…
