In a blog posted today, Bungie has announced that it is officially splitting ties with partner Activision. A partnership that has lasted for 8 years and 2 games.
They're not just splitting ties, they are establishing them self as their own studio. No longer tied down by another company and more importantly, no longer having to answer to another company.
What does this mean? Bungie is now 100% in control of their own games. Their mistakes, their successes, their everything, is on them.
Which is a good thing.
It has been highly publicized that Bungie and Activision had a rocky relationship together, and we all know that Destiny suffered because of it.

I love my Switch, I really do. But its lacking something. So I have compiled a list of 10 things that I feel Nintendo needs to do with the Switch.
In no real order.

From inputs being delayed, to them just being dropped altogether, to characters teleporting across the screen, to me just dieing cause I fell off of the edge when I clearly wasn't any where near it. Its really no excuse in what is now 2019 to have issues with online…Continue

Happy New Year to everybody!
With the New Year, comes new rumors! We all love rumors right?
This one is kind of a big one. Gaming web site "Gaming INTEL" got an exclusive leak on a possible Nintendo Direct coming this month. As soon as the 10th of January.
I WAS TOLD JANUARY 10TH FROM ONE SOURCE. THIS HASN’T BEEN CROSS CHECKED BETWEEN SOURCES. MOST OF MY OTHER SOURCES ARE STILL UNDECIDED ON AN EXACT DATE, BUT CERTAIN OF A NINTENDO JANUARY DIRECT.
