New Nintendo Games

Four new Nintendo Switch games have been released

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.
Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is sold out all over the place, making prices more expensive...

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.
Call of Duty - Modern Warfare 2 Remastered

A remastered Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 could be in the Near Future

It was all the way back in 2017 that Activision Blizzard remastered the original Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. 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

The Impact of the Coronavirus on Halo Infinite

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.
GOG Sale

A Huge Number of PC Games are on Sale at GOG for Spring

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.
GameStop Storefront

GameStop is Closing Retail Storefronts and going Digital

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. According to a memo the guys in charge left for their employees in case they were questioned by government officials, GameStop considers itself essential retail.

CD Projekt Red

New game set in The Witcher universe rumored to be next in line after...

The massive success of game developer CD Projekt Red can only be attributed to how amazing the Witcher series of games is in almost every aspect. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the most critically acclaimed RPGs out there, and needless to say, fans of the series are always looking for more content. A dedicated Gwent game is a wonderful start, but it’s not enough to scratch that itch.

Google Stadia will be Adding Five more Games Soon

Google Stadia will be Adding Five more Games Soon

Google Stadia originally launched with a somewhat scant array of games, especially considering how hyped up the service was. But the letdown was fixed pretty quickly, and Google has announced that five more games will be coming to the service in the coming months, 3 of which will be timed exclusives. Games coming this spring and summer include Spitlings, Stacks on Stacks (On Stacks), and Lost Words: Beyond the Page. However, no release dates for these particular games have been announced yet. That said, we do know that these games will be released on Stadia before they become available on any other platform, so Stadia will be the first place to gain access to them.
Microsoft is Paying People to Find Bugs in Their Software

Microsoft is Paying People to Find Bugs in Their Software

Too good to be true! Right, gamers? A recent article from CBR has exposed a lucrative opportunity for eagle eyed gamers who want to earn money by pointing out bugs and other software related issues in Microsoft products. CBR reports “In recent years, as computer security has become more of a concern for everyone, trying to get ahead of the bugs and vulnerabilities that cause hacks and denial of service attacks is a higher and higher priority. Microsoft has been in on this game for a while, but they just recently launched the Xbox Bounty Program, taking what has become a relatively standard ‘bug bounty’ program and bringing it to another video game console. If you find a major bug in an Xbox Live service and report it to them, you could get paid for it.”
Pokemon Home is now Available for iOS, Android and Switch

Pokemon Home is now Available for iOS, Android and Switch

Pokemon Home, previously announced for a February 2020 release, has been launched on time. This cloud based subscription service mainly allows you to transfer Pokemon from older games into the newest titles, Sword and Shield. While it had been announced that it would be released in February of this year, no specific release date had been confirmed, so it’s a bit of a surprise to get our hands on it so suddenly. Similar to the Pokemon Bank service, Home allows you to store Pokemon that you’ve caught from various games, much like the storage system that is actually in the games. Two versions of Home exist, with the mobile version for iOS and Android having some nifty features like trading available, but they are a companion app to the main instance of Home for the Switch itself.

The Outer Worlds will be Available on Nintendo Switch in March

Despite the initial idea that the Outer Worlds would potentially be an Xbox exclusive title, we’ve known for some time that it was coming to the Nintendo Switch (and it released for a bunch of other platforms besides). However, we didn’t know exactly when this was going to happen; until now.

As is tradition by now, Xbox Live Gold members get free games every month, and we now know what those games for February will be. For Xbox One, players will have access to several games, including the multiplayer Fable Heroes, racing game TT Isle of Man, horror adventure game Call of Cthulhu and the original Xbox classic Star Wars Battlefront. Needless to say, this is a pretty hefty assortment of games with varied genres and appeal.
Dying Light 2 has been Delayed Indefinitely

Dying Light 2 has been Delayed Indefinitely

While Dying Light 2 was initially supposed to be released in Spring of 2020, developer Techland has unfortunately confirmed that the game is being indefinitely delayed until an unknown time. This was revealed in a statement they made on Twitter just recently. "We were initially aiming for a Spring 2020 release with Dying Light 2, but unfortunately we need more development time to fulfill our vision," Techland wrote.

Our priority is to deliver an experience that lives up to our own high standards and to the expectations of you, the fans."
Sonic the Hedgehog will have a Big Year in 2020

Sonic the Hedgehog will have a Big Year in 2020

While Sonic and Sega as a whole have always trailed a bit behind their ever-popular Nintendo rivals, that doesn’t mean they don’t plan to take advantage of the coming year. Sega has announced the Sonic 2020 Project, which will have the company announcing Sonic related news on the 20th of every month this year. Of course, the announcement for January was actually the announcement that this project was going to happen, so it’s a bit of a cheap move on that front.
Horizon Zero Dawn Could Come To PC Later This Year

Horizon Zero Dawn Could Come To PC This Year

Horizon Zero Dawn is probably one of the most well received games to come out in the past few years. Its open-world concept and unique environment and lore enthralled thousands of players across the globe; but not PC players, who just had to suffer and deal with the lack of the game on their platform. Before anyone gets their hopes up, a PC port of Horizon Zero Dawn is still officially unconfirmed. Technically no one responsible for a theoretical PC port has said that there will be one. However, there are many reasons to believe that such a port will come our way sometime this year. The reason this is believed is mostly due to a report from Kotaku citing three major sources that are apparently privy to Sony’s plans for the open world game from Guerilla.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake has Been Delayed Until April

Final Fantasy 7 Remake has Been Delayed Until April

While it is extremely unfortunate news for all Square Enix fans, the much anticipated Final Fantasy 7 remake has been delayed until April. When will Final Fantasy 7 Remake Be Released? Initially, it was supposed to be released on March 3rd, but developer Yoshinori Kitase has declared that the game has been delayed until April 10th. Supposedly, the reason for this is to give the developing team more time to take care of some of the finishing touches for the game.
