    Bald Bouncer
    Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed something that the rest of us all already basically knew- that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be the last game Nintendo releases for the Wii U. After this, no more Nintendo games will be launching on the platform.

  • Overwatch Dev Update Video Discusses Rewarding PTR Players

    Blizzard Entertainment has released a new developer update for Overwatch starring game director Jeff Kaplan. The main topic for the video is regarding the studio’s philosophy with the PTR or Public Test Realm and how it’s used to test new changes.

  • Resident Evil 7 Receiving Free “Not A Hero” DLC in Spring

    Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 will have a play-time of some 9 to 10 hours but there’s plenty of post-launch content coming via the Season Pass. However, there will also be some free DLC releasing this Spring.


    According to Capcom Japan on Twitter, the DLC is called “Not A Hero” and will release in Spring 2017. Interestingly, it also mentions that Ethan’s “nightmare” (which lines up with the name of a different DLC episode) will be “a short scenario with different tastes.”...

  • Mass Effect Andromeda Multiplayer Can Net You Single-Player Rewards

    Bioware’s Mass Effect: Andromeda is causing quite the buzz for many reasons, multiplayer perhaps being one of the biggest. That’s mostly due to the awesome nature of multiplayer in Mass Effect 3 and Bioware is introducing enough features to streamline the process for fans.


    While single-player fans won’t have to worry about multiplayer interfering with the story like in Mass Effect 3, there will be incentive to play it.

    Lead designer Ian S. Frazier replied to a...

  • Destiny Weekly Reset: Sunless Cell Nightfall, Aksis Challenge and More

    The weekly reset has come and gone for the “Balanced PvP? What balanced PVP?” Destiny and that means new activities with new modifiers. The Nightfall this week is The Sunless Cell, taking players back to Oryx’s Dreadnaught to battle Alak-hul, the Darkblade. Modifiers include Epic, Specialist, Juggler, Airborne and Arc Burn so get those 4th Horseman shotguns out and go wild.

    Nioh Receiving Free PvP Mode in Post-Launch Update

    Team Ninja’s Nioh shares a lot in common with Dark Souls and Bloodborne (along with Diablo and other titles) and while you can summon players to fight their AI avatars, there’s no proper PvP mode in the game. However, that will be remedied after launch. Team Ninja told Gamereactor (translation via NeoGAF) that PvP would be coming in a free update after Nioh’s launch. It will be interesting to see whether this means a dedicated arena for battles that players can matchmake for a la Ashes of Ariandel...

    Splatoon 2 Release Date Listed by UK Retailer GAME

    UK retailer GAME has been on somewhat of a streak when it comes to leaks. Prior to Nintendo’s Switch presentation on January 13th, it noted that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would be releasing in March. Granted, that’s based off of every report under the sun confirming the same but its latest release date leak for Splatoon 2 could still be legitimate.


    According to GAME, Splatoon 2 will be out on August 18th for the Switch. The listing hasn’t been changed yet which...

    UK Game Sales: Grand Theft Auto 5 Rises to Top Spot

    As per this week’s Gfk Chart-Track data, Grand Theft Auto 5 has claimed the top spot in sales for the UK once again. This marks the tenth such number one spot for Rockstar’s open world title though this only accounts for physical sales.


    Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare finally dropped to second place following numerous weeks in the top spot. FIFA 17 has predictably gone to third place followed by Battlefield 1 and Forza Horizon 3. Watch Dogs 2 is at sixth place and continues to...

  • The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Runs at 900p, 720p in Portable Mode – Report

    Digital Foundry’s analysis of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Nintendo’s Switch is available thanks to a recent showing at London and it offers some new information on the open world title’s performance.

  • Nintendo of America President Discusses Metroid, Mother 3 on Switch

    A new Metroid? The long-awaited sequel to Mother aka Earthbound finally releasing in the West? There’s nothing to announce currently but Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime is more than aware about “key IP” that fans want to see.


    Speaking to GameSpot, Fils-Aime said, “Oh, so earlier today I got asked about Mother 3; maybe you can ask me about Metroid. Look, again, I am proud as an executive with Nintendo to say that we look at all of the boards and all of the comments...

  • Gravity Rush 2 Review – A Step Up From Its Predecessor

    After nearly five years of absence from the gaming world, SIE Japan Studio and Project Siren’s Gravity Rush is back. And although this sequel, an open-world, third-person action/adventure game may have a very slow pace – at first, which is down to the necessary story moments, and a somewhat similar feel to its predecessor, you’ll be bouncing around the world having so much enough fun, that the positives will definitely outweigh those minor negatives.


    Gravity Rush 2 starts out...

  • COD 2017 – Hiring VFX Artist To Create ‘Stunning Environments And Compelling Moments’

    We still don’t know what Call of Duty 2017 will be, apart from Sledgehammer’s teases a few weeks ago- but it does sound like Sledgehammer intend to make it a visually resplendent, gorgeous looking game, at any rate.


    The job will apparently entail ‘creating stunning visuals effects for the FPS genre using proprietary real time particle systems,’ and ‘working with Level Designers and Team Leads to create FX for stunning environments and compelling moments,’ among other...

  • Microsoft Xbox Boss – Cloud Tech Is Working Great, Crackdown 3 World Feels Alive

    Remember ‘the power of the cloud’? That was the big thing that Microsoft and Xbox executives were touting for the Xbox One at the beginning of the generation. In the end, it all came to nothing, of course- while cloud gaming may some day happen in the future, our present day bandwidth infrastructure simply cannot support it.


    There were going to be a lot of cloud powered games, that would make the Xbox One far more powerful than the PS4. In the end, it will be just one game that...

  • Final Fantasy 15 – Unannounced Expansion Will Change The Game’s Foundation

    Final Fantasy 15 is a great game, but it could be so much more. There are several baffling design decisions, a lot of things that it starts, but forgets to develop or go anywhere with, and others that it simply fails to do outright. Put simply, it’s a great game that could be even better- which is why it is heartening to hear Square Enix’s Hajime Tabata discuss how he plans to improve the game further with expansions and DLC.


    “We will evolve our released game Final Fantasy...

  • Overwatch Suffering From Game Breaking Bug In Oasis Gardens

    Overwatch is one of the most popular games in the world- so every time it has an issue, that issue gets magnified, and affects more people, due to the sheer userbase involved. Which is exactly what is happening with this latest bug that has been discovered in the game on Oasis Gardens.


    The glitch was discovered on Reddit, and you can see it from there (I will not directly embed it here, because I do not condone its usage- as an aside, this is a reminder to not exploit this patch....

    Nintendo Switch’s Snazzy Minimalistic UI Revealed

    You might have missed it during the official presentation for Nintendo Switch but the user interface is quite something. Thanks to the most recent Treehouse Live stream though, some more glimpses of the Switch’s UI were seen. You can see it above (image courtesy of PowerUpGaming).


    From the outset, the Switch seems like a decent leap forward from previous systems, presenting a more minimalist presentation that’s sleeker but easier to understand. Icons for the Nintendo Store,...
