Nintendo Labo VR and Possible Switch Mini

Two sets of news concerning Nintendo’s current (and possibly future) plans for the Switch have cropped up recently, the release of a Nintendo Labo VR and the possible rumor of a Switch Mini (I must emphasize that the latter has not been confirmed by Nintendo).  And I can’t help but speculate that, if rumors of…

Castlevania Classics Coming to the PlayStation 4

On October 26th, PlayStation 4 owners who may have been craving a classic Castlevania experience will be treated to not one but two famous Castlevania games from the SNES and PS1 eras in Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood.

Is Xbox All Access a Game-Changer?

Taking a potentially bold step forward, Microsoft recently announced Xbox All Access. Signing up for the two-year, monthly payment program will not only get you a brand new Xbox – the Xbox One S or Xbox One X – but also two years of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. There’s a nice breakdown…

Thoughts on Red Dead Redemption II’s first gameplay video

When it comes to new games I really want to play, I often start avoiding news, trailers, etc. a couple months before release. I like to be as surprised as possible once I load up my new experience. But with Red Dead Redemption II, the excitement I feel is far too palpable for me to…

Thoughts on Red Dead Redemption II’s third trailer

A couple days ago, Rockstar released its third trailer for Red Dead Redemption II. I’m firmly planted in the RDRII camp, so of course I had to tune in (multiple times), along with millions of others. If you’ve not yet seen it for yourself, I’m happy to oblige.

My Take on the New Atari VCS

Last week, Atari announced its latest gaming offering: the all-new Atari VCS.

But even with the reveal, there still remained questions about the Atari…

I Ain’t Afraid of No AR Ghosts!

This past weekend, Sony announced their brand new venture into the world of augmented reality (AR) games: Ghostbusters World. As far as comparisons go, think of a mobile game like Pokémon Go! but with proton packs and ghosts rather than pokeballs and Pokémon.

Nintendo’s “Nindies” Sure Look Promising (or, If I Only Had a Switch)

PAX West wrapped up earlier this week, and from it came a slew of game announcements. High among the highlights that caught my attention was Nintendo’s Summer Nindies Showcase, which featured several independent game titles that will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. In a mere twenty minutes, Nintendo packed in a dazzling array of…

Gamevice is Suing Nintendo

In recent gaming news, it has come to my attention that a company called Gamevice is suing Nintendo.  Gamevice has created detachable controllers that attach to smartphones and tablets in much the same way as the Joy-Con controllers attach to the Switch.  If you’re interested in reading more, the web site I visited was CNBC….

A KH3 Release Date, Toy Story, and More

I’ve long since lost track of the number of years we’ve been waiting to hear this news.  But it’s finally confirmed…Kingdom Hearts 3 is indeed something that’s going to happen in our lifetimes!  It was announced at Disney’s D23 convention that this greatly anticipated game is scheduled for release in 2018.  When in 2018, I…
