Without much of an announcement at all, four brand new games have been added to the Nintendo Switch eShop. The again, Nintendo’s Direct Mini presentation was also a surprise, so it is two for two. Within the many announcements put forward by that presentation is the aforementioned four games that you can buy right this very second, if so inclined.
With COVID-19 impacting nearly every industry around the world, shipping and supply chains have been hit particularly hard. Fact of the matter is, the retail stock of the Nintendo Switch is practically nonexistent right now, and there’s no word as to when they may be restocked. That being the case, getting your hands on a Switch right now would cost you a whole lot more than usual. Naturally, you’d be hard-pressed to find some recent Switch releases, like Doom Eternal or the new Animal Crossing.

And thanks to a leak from the South Korean ratings board, it seems that the sequel to the fan favorite may be on track to get the same treatment. This information comes from the Game Rating and Administration Committee, or GRAC. Their site has a listing for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered, registered on February 26th. Of course, the name makes it obvious that this remaster only tackles the campaign, and not the multiplayer, but anything is better than nothing by a long shot. That said, the original Modern Warfare remastered did also have its multiplayer included, with fresh achievements and tweaks. That said, the listing for Modern Warfare 2’s campaign could just be separate from the multiplayer: there’s no guarantee that the multiplayer for the second game isn’t a getting a remastered treatment as well.
Halo Infinite is without a doubt one of the most anticipated games of 2020, even if it isn’t going to be available until the end of the year. That being said, it’s really no surprise that the Coronavirus has impacted its development just like it has every other major form of entertainment. It seems that every anticipated game, show and movie has been delayed or cancelled and Halo Infinite is not exempt from the viral crosshairs, as made clear by statements from the developers.
With the Coronavirus crisis getting progressively worse, certain medical items are in high demand: namely, masks. The situation is so bad that some actual medical installations don’t have the masks they need in the midst of this tenable situation.

Spring is here; flowers, pollen, allergies bugs are all on the rise, which kind of brings down the joy of fresh new life and all that. But for us members of the gaming community, none of that really matters anyway, because the most important thing about spring is all the major savings on video games across all platforms. Something about spring just convinces game sellers to put massive discounts on everything, not that there’s anything to complain about.
About a week ago, GameStop head honchos apparently thought it was a good idea to keep their physical stores open during the Coronavirus outbreak, even in states that required all non-essential retail stores to be closed.

Google Stadia originally launched with a somewhat scant array of games, especially considering how hyped up the service was.
