Nintendo’s NX is the next big thing on their table and is billed to be a brand-new concept that will “transform gamer’s lives” when it launches. Sounds a little similar to what was being said when the Nintendo Revolution had yet to become the Wii, so I’m more than a little skeptical about their intentions. Still, it’s going to be their next dedicated gaming platform and, if they’ve learned anything in the last couple hardware cycles, will be a powerful machine capable of running the most modern engines. To demonstrate what that could mean for Nintendo’s most famous property, one crafty YouTuber put together this absolutely stunning video. (more…)
It appears that our great disappointment over the misinformation about The Legend of Zelda’s Netflix series may soon be put to rest with a possible new project. During Nintendo‘s 75th annual shareholder’s meeting, where all of the top Nintendogs try to convince their investors that they’re still awesome, CEO Satoru Iwata dropped some intriguing nuggets about the company’s non-gaming future. This could indeed be another sign of the Disney-Nintendo partnership rumor we recently reported here, lending credence to the story. No full translation of the meeting is available for our greedy eyes just yet, but Iwata was still quoted confirming those plans. (more…)
Batman: Arkham Knight was one of the most anticipated games of the year and the rollout went flawlessly, unless you were an old school PC gamer like myself. It seems that while the Playstation version is fantastic, the company that handled the port to PC version didn’t take into account the different video cards PC gamers use and the Frame Rate Per Second transition stutters the video feed until the game is horribly unplayable. Well, you can play it, but you certainly won’t enjoy it. This problem is mainly during the Batmobile sections of the game, which was a big selling point for this latest in the Batman: Arkham franchise. After numerous complaints and backlash started to appear on the Steam gaming platform from PC users, Warner Bros. has suspended Batman: Arkham Knight PC sales until a patch fix can be applied.

Ever since Nintendo’s Satoru Iwata has been tasked with proving to investors that the Wii U isn’t doomed to be a colossal failure, there has been much change under the Big N’s roof. A new Club Nintendo, a partnership with Japanese giant DeNA for mobile games, and even allowing a couple of their characters into Activision’s hit Skylanders series. Beyond that, the Nintendudes have been hinting at even more 3rd party partnerships and licensing deals. In light of that, the rumor mill recently began spinning a tale about Nintendo partnering with a certain magic kingdom for future projects.
Now that the most wonderful time of the year for us gaming nerds has come and gone, I think it’s high time to get into the biggest hits and misses of what was, without question, a truly exceptional show. It’s difficult to think of another year (without any new console announcements) that was even close to matching this one in terms of excitement and excellent game announcements, and that’s really the best thing that could possibly be said about it. And so ladies and gentlebastards, without further interruption, I give you the 17 biggest hits and misses of E3 2015! (more…)
Fallout 3 holds a special place in all our gaming gamer hearts, but that doesn’t stop Smoosh Games from giving it the Honest Game Trailer Treatment. Even when blasting some particular aspect of the game, you can’t help but feel their love for the very thing they are attempting to lambaste. This might be the most conflicted Love/Hate relationship in the Known Universe, but maybe it’s more simply a Love/Annoyed relationship. (more…)
Just days away from its release, Batman: Arkham Knight is generating some negative buzz for cancelling their special Batmobile themed collectors edition of the game. The Batmobile is the arguably the most exciting new feature this installment of the trilogy; fully drivable and interactive through the world of Gotham.
Every once in a while you hear about someone doing something that is just amazingly ridiculous. Today’s case-in-point – a Fallout fan was determined to pre-order the fourth installment of the series, though he decided to do so in a most unconventional manner. In fact, he shipped a box containing more than 2000 bottle caps right to Bethesda. A pic of the caps and the letter that accompanied the box are below. (more…)
Once Microsoft made the big Xbox One backwards compatibility announcement at E3, many were wondering if Sony‘s Playstation would follow suit. When MCV caught up with the European Playstation head honcho Jim Ryan, they asked that very question. (more…)
Batman: Arkham Knight continues to look fantastic. Personally, I find myself more excited about the Barbara Gordon/Batgirl/Oracle prequel expansion that is included in the extended season pass. Oracle will play a major supporting role in this latest incarnation of the Batman Arkham series and it will be nice to play her original Bat-themed-alter-ego. There are some new posters and the new trailer that debuted at E3, check them out below. (more…)
