A LOT OF SPOILERS AHEAD!  SERIOUSLY!…

The Legend Of Diablo

Diablo 3 is coming to the Switch! Which is awesome since it has been much improved in the last 6 years. 

Originally released on the PC in 2012, then on consoles (PS3\360) the following year. Diablo 3 has had its share of criticism. The original PC release saw a slew of backlash because of Blizzard's "modernization" of the game. They made everything easier.…

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…

Assassin's Creed Odyssey 2.0 Already?!

I agree it's a weird headline, well this Assassin's Creed news is on the weird side, but good I promise you. Ubisoft announced today that they will not be releasing a new AC title in 2019 like they have since 2007. Instead they will be releasing more content for the 2018 release of Assassin's Creed Odyssey to keep players hooked.

At Gamescom today Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said, and I'm paraphrasing, that more content is coming for next year on a regular basis and you will play…

Devil May Cry 5 Trailer Is Out & Does Not Disappoint

Just released today from Gamescom 2018 is the new Devil May Cry 5 Trailer and ooohhhh buddy!! My first reaction of the original announcement for a new Devil May Cry left me less than excited. The reason I say that is that I was very disappointed with DMC: Devil May Cry, which is now obvious that it wan't a true sequel to the series, well...more like a DMC 4.5.

Fast forward to today, I give you the new trailer for Devil May Cry 5...…

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…

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Direct 8/8/18

I know what you are asking yourself "really didn't we just do this at E3?". The answer is yes, we did. But Nintendo is really banking on the new Smash Bros game to sell consoles, since they are going through a slump right now. With no new Triple A games coming out for the next few months, console sales have been dipping. There are games coming out, but its mostly…

Today starts one of the hypest times in all of the Fighting Game Community. The Evolution Gaming Series, or Evo for short. 

In 1996 Tom Cannon wanted a place where all of the best Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo players could come and show who was the best. He decided to create a big tournament. Originally named "Battle of the Bay", this a 40-man Super Street…
