Another "Mini" Console Is Coming

PlayStation has surprisingly entered the retro gaming console arena with the PlayStation Classic. 

As expected, it's quite smaller than the original and is fueled by emulation. 

It will come with 20 games, 5 of which they've already announced. 

- Final Fantasy 7

- Jumping Flash

- Ridge Racer Type 4

- Tekken 3

- Wild Arms

Now, I grew up with the PlayStation and can say that I'm not excited about the games…

Last Week's SNK Tease Has Been Revealed

It's a new Samurai Showdown game. Samurai Spirits is what the series is called in Japan, and it seems this may be a reboot of sorts with them just not using the "Showdown". 

It's been ages since we've seen a new Samurai Showdown game and this one looks fantastic.

Fortnite FINALLY Adds What Everyone Has Been Waiting For

In an effort to continue their close relationship with fans, Fortnite has added a feature that was actually a "meme" change.org petition made to mock the actual desire to have it. 

That petition was to add the ability to thank the bus driver.

You know, the person who essentially delivers 99 people to their deaths.

Who. The hell. Cares.

That's like thanking the revolver in a game of Russian Roulette.

I'm sure that there are plenty of other…

First Impressions: World War 3

I just heard about World War 3 today, after seeing that they released a "pre gamescon" gameplay video. 

Here it is: 

Just a few things to say. 

First, holy rip off. I understand that many FPS's take from each other, but c'mon. How long before a lawsuit on this?

That aside, it looks like Battlefield 3 without…

New Indie Games Indicate It's Time To Get A Nintendo Switch

A number of indie games have been revealed for the Nintendo Switch and it's pretty impressive. 

Keep in mind, I'm not a big fan of most indie titles, and I'm even less of a fan of the Nintendo Switch.

The highlight video below has changed my mind. Yeah, you'll notice a common genre of many of the titles, but it doesn't matter. There are some great looking games coming and it's actually refreshing. 

Watch the video and listen to this week's podcast, or…

The Next Labo Kit Is The Best Yet

Nintendo Labo is the cardboard craze that lets you build peripherals for your Switch. So far, you can build a robot suit, or a number of little contraptions like a remote control, piano, and fishing pole depending on the kit you buy. 

And now, Nintendo has upped their game and is releasing a new Labo Kit. Vehicles. 

I gotta say, this…

Kabounce Is Free This Weekend..But What Is It?

Here's a game that wasn't on my radar at all. It's called Kabounce and it's pitched as "multiplayer pinball". 

It looks like it works in a "Splatoon-esque" way. Color the arena in your own color while attacking the other balls. 

"Compete head to head in 4 versus 4 multiplayer pinball arena.…

The PUBG Global Invitational Is Underway

The PUBG Global Invitational event in Berlin is different. Many empty seats and many silent fans littering the arena.

However, it was the opening ceremony that won the show. 

Some people call it cheesy, stupid, weird. Whatever your opinion, one thing was certain. It went off without a hitch. No stumbles, no awkward moments, no technical errors. 

Here it is in all it's glory:…

Sony Doesn't Need Cross-play, But Should Have Joined

Sony doesn't need to be involved with console cross-play. They are the biggest selling and most popular console, so by default they already have more players than both Microsoft and Nintendo. And why would they prevent the sale of a PS4 because said consumer can't play with their friend who already owns one? 

I'll tell you why. 

Sony has now given the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch an exclusive feature. By not participating they have made, what could have been…

Battlefield V Revealed. And Yes, It's WWII.

As expected, today was the day that EA revealed the new game in the Battlefield series. And boy was I wrong:

It's not Bad Company, it's not Hardline, it's Battlefield. And so close to the release of Battlefield 1, too. Well, the game looks beautiful and the action looks true to life. 

I'm not as thrilled as most Battlefield fans…

Overwatch Gets Lego-fied

Activision Blizzard has just announced a partnership with Lego to bring the heroes and maps to the masses in the form of Lego sets. 



Though sets haven't been revealed, they will start arriving in Spring/Summer 2018 with each being treated as they treat new in-game events. I'm sure this means cryptic leaks and and TONs of anticipation. 

And expect Nerf adding some Overwatch themed weapons as part of their Nerf Rivals line sometime in January 2019. 

As for…

Overwatch vs Team Fortress [VIDEO]

There's no doubt that Overwatch is a "spiritual successor" to Team Fortress. In fact, that's why I love Overwatch so much. Team Fortress was my PC game of choice, and at the time, there was nothing like it on Playstation or Xbox. 

So if you're like me and put many years into TFC/TF2...

THEN. WATCH. THIS. NOW: …

The King of Kong Still Wins

Billy Mitchell, the "King Of Kong", has finally been caught cheating. In the documentary King of Kong, he was kind of a "bad guy". He would never meet up for a high score challenge in person, and was kind of a dick. 

But I say he won. 

He lived his life as a champion during a time where high scores WERE gaming, and arcades were dominating the U.S. He was going…
