Can you believe that the Nintendo Switch is only a month or so away?! It seems like it just yesterday that we were all speculating about what the console will be like and whether or not that weird oval-screen controller was the real deal. Well, thankfully that controller turned out to be a hoax, and we’ve even got a few confirmed games to get excited about. That said though, there’s still plenty to think about in regard to the Switch, and for me it’s mostly about what games I’d like to see on it. Given how Nintendo has been treating anything that isn’t Zelda, Mario, or Splatoon these days, it may very well be that none of these will ever happen. A man can dream though, right?

Nier: Automata is already out next month here in the US. That may be amazingly fast considering just how recently it broke into the wider gaming consciousness, but it’s definitely not unwelcome. In fact, it would be quite nice if more games started up their hype trains a few months before release rather than the now standard 2-3 years. Anyway, the game is coming out soon and thus we have a brand new trailer to to keep it stuck in our brains for awhile longer. You can see it here after the jump.

How much time does it take for your initial impression of a game to form? A few minutes? A few hours? How much time does it take to overturn that first impression, if indeed it can be overturned at all? First impressions are very powerful things. No matter the subject be it a game, a movie, a book, or even a person, your first impression of them is going to heavily influence your interactions. Usually we have plenty of opportunity to reinforce or overturn it, but what happens when your first impression becomes your only impression? Continue reading Overcoming First Impressions
It seems that the Switch is going to be in even shorter supply at launch than we originally thought. According to reports, both Target and GameStop have had to cancel some pre-orders due to overselling their allotted stock. Continue reading GameStop and Target Supposedly Cancelling Pre-Orders
As we advance ever closer to its March 21st release date, more and more details have been dropping for the highly anticipated Mass Effect: Andromeda. There’s still plenty that we don’t know about the game though, with the game’s multiplayer still firmly blocked from our view. Still, just as astronomers make indirect observations of distant stellar objects, we can glean some information from what is otherwise just something meant to show off the perks gained from pre-ordering the game. Continue reading Mass Effect Gets a Pre-Order Trailer
I’m not sure if I can really call myself a Nintendo fan at the moment. The me of the past was certainly a Nintendo fan, and I still love all of my Nintendo games. My opinion of the company is a little different though; deteriorating further and further with each passing year until they became a little more than a joke in my eyes. I don’t want to dislike them. I was really hoping I’d see something incredible at their recent Switch presentation. I wanted to see something that would bring them back from the brink and show me a hint of the games maker they used to be. Instead, all I got was the same thing I’ve been getting from Nintendo for at least 6 years now: disappointment. Continue reading I’m Worried About Nintendo
