So hey, a direct happened.

Ohoho, it actually happened. Morphies Law and all.
It was actually a much longer presentation than expected as well, a full 20 minutes! Goodness.

So what did we get? Well… Not a lot, for most people. But in the case of supporting smaller studios, Nintendo is nailing it. It’s fantastic to see some of these (very small) upcoming developers given a platform to showcase their work.

Okay, okay, hear me out on this.

So we all know we’re due another one of these smaller directs, highlighting some of the yet to be released indie titles heading to Switch. Since E3, I think anyone who follows Nintendo has been watching, and waiting, to see… What’s up. Because surely, we all say, there is more to see.

Now, after quite a few rumours of August directs and whatnot, I’m not totally surprised to see a couple of indie studios beginning to hype up the same specific date.

After months of having it supposedly confirmed, and then un-confirmed, multiple times. Blizzard’s popular Diablo 3: Eternal Collection is officially announced for Switch!
As well as the full base game, this version will feature the “Reaper of Souls” expansion and “Rise of the Necromancer” DLC on the cartridge. Neat.  Continue reading It’s (finally) official, Diablo 3 is coming to the Switch!

Doom Eternal is coming to Switch and that is mega cool

During Bethesda’s annual Quake-con earlier in the week, they thought it kind to bring it to our attention that they’re porting Doom Eternal to the Switch, and- Wait, hold up- really? Woah.
Hard to believe that a full-on AAA like this is coming to Switch, it’s incredible.
The lovely folks over at Panic Button are handling the port too, which lays any fears of it being a bad port to rest. (They handled the initial Doom port to the console.)  Continue reading Doom Eternal is coming to Switch and that is mega cool

Why Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee worries me

1As I’m sure most of us long-time Pokemon fans have noticed by now, this game, unfortunately, is not made for us.

This is a game made to reel in some of Pokemon Go’s ridiculously huge player-base (reportedly 147 million last May) to the main series games.
Could this work? Yeah, probably. But to the extent that they want it to? Probably not.
So many decisions have been made to simplify the game, to such a point that you wonder… Is this still a Pokemon game at all?  Continue reading Why Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee worries me

Ahri – Kitsune

Ahri, the nine-tailed fox is a pretty apt representation of the Japanese yokai, Kitsune.
Kitsune are a common concept in Japan and can be found all throughout it’s history.

Most commonly appearing outside of temples nowadays as statues. You’ll most likely see them carrying a scroll or a jewel Continue reading League of Legends Characters Based on Actual Legends and Folktales
