Nintendo Reveals its Newest Console, The Nintendo Switch

After months of speculation and with Nintendo abandoning the WiiU, the biggest question we have had was what is the Nintendo NX? Well Nintendo finally released their answer, the Nintendo Switch. Check out the trailer for it below: As someone who is hyper critical of Nintendo (I feel like they haven’t done much innovation in years), the newest console looks promising. Having the ability to play Skyrim on the go? Sweet. At least now this may mean that they are finally taking a step towards contending with the other consoles. Hopefully this means that Nintendo won’t feel like that childhood friend that was awesome but never went anywhere. It is interesting...


Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors Not to be Released in Germany

According to a recent press release by NIS, it appears as though their upcoming title Criminal Girls 2: Party Favors will not be released in Germany. This is due to the fact that the Unterhaltungssoftware Selbstkontrolle (the German equivalent of the US’ ESRB) has refused to give the game a rating. Since there can be not rating attributed to the game itself, it therefore cannot be released (sold at retail or advertised). That being said, the game will still be available in other parts of the world. This includes other European countries (with a rating of PEGI 16) and naturally in North America (since we allow pretty much everything at an M rating)....

From something as mundane as trying to find someones lost cat, to solving several murder cases. The game is slated for a spring...


Meet Ana, Overwatch’s Newest Hero

Well Anna isn’t actually new in terms of the Overwatch lore, however, she is the newest sniper that was announced today. Not only is she expanding the very large database of current heroes, she is also Pharah’s mother. We would love to see an Overwatch short with the two of them together (hint hint Blizzard). One thing is certain, a sniper healer with a plethora of passive skills that will be sure to mix things up following her release. Her sniper (dubbed the biotic rifle) heals, she has a sleep dart, a biotic grenade (this does damage to enimes but also heals allies), and finally a Nano Boost which is...
