The Joy-Con Drift Strikes Again

It’s official, the infamous Joy-Con drifting issue so prevalent in recent gaming news has taken yet another victim.  My Nintendo Switch is less than a year old, with a large portion of those months not even spent using the console (I don’t have that many games on it yet).  And my left Joy-Con analog stick…

Google Stadia Worries Me

As we near the end of this eighth generation of consoles draws to a close, more and more information about what the so-called future of gaming is becoming available. Some of it, like Nintendo’s and Sony’s plans, is encouraging. The rest, not so much. It seems every major publisher wants to launch their own game…

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…

It’s Official…I Have a Switch!

That’s right, I bought a Switch.  For a time, I had no idea when I was ever going to buy Nintendo’s newest console.  I mean, while Super Mario Odyssey looked amazing, I couldn’t really justify spending $300 when I would only buy one game.  As was also the case with the Wii, I wasn’t truly…

Sony announces new PS4 Pro bundle. Get hype?

Earlier this week, Sony announced a new Limited Edition PS4 Pro Destiny 2 bundle. It features a one terabyte white console, a matching white controller, a hard copy of the game, and a digital voucher for the expansion pass and extra DLC. Its list price is $449, and if you need to mark your calendar,…

A Brief Look at the Switch’s Stats

In case you weren’t already aware…the Nintendo Switch is almost upon us!  Nintendo recently released some additional information on the Switch, and even though this information is already readily available online, let me summarize a little bit of what I learned here for you.  First of all, the console’s release date is scheduled for March…

A Collaborative Look at the New Nintendo Switch

If you’ve been following along with recent gaming news, you’ll no doubt be aware of the fact that the mystery of the Nintendo NX has finally been revealed as Nintendo’s newest console, the Nintendo Switch, named for its ability to, well, switch between a handheld and a console.  If you haven’t already seen it, you…

Pure Speculation: Will the NX Save Nintendo?

It is widely known that the Wii U has suffered a rather poor reception, and as a less than proud owner of the console for about two years now, it takes no stretch of the imagination to understand why this is.  In all that time, my Wii U has been largely used for recording gameplay…

The Physical Disc or a Digital Copy.

Recently–as in last year, I conducted a poll on my twitter account about which people prefer; the physical disc or a digital copy of a game. While this is by no means, a professional statistic, I did find it interesting that the poll tied.   There are many pros and cons to both choices and I…

Day 11: Gaming System of Choice

Day 11 in the 30 days’ worth of video game topics I began writing about…probably over a year ago is my gaming system of choice.  It’s a pretty straightforward question, and that is why I want to write about more than said console’s amazing selection of games and the other obvious things one would typically…
