Ashley Johnson & Troy Baker in Studio for The Last of Us Part II.

Looks like development of The Last of Us Part II is coming along nicely. Ashley Johnson, voice of Ellie,  posted this picture today of what looks like facial tracking for voice dub.

I dunno about you guys, but I absolutely can’t wait to see more of The Last of Us, so even the smallest bit of news is amazing.

Yoko Taro, mysterious director for the latest entry in the Nier series, has shared a short but heartfelt tweet about the game’s sales.

He’s obviously broken up, and I think we need to protect him forever.

A first look at Modern Sonic in Sonic Forces!

I’m a bit of a Sonic fan with the games shaping my childhood. We’ve seen a teaser of what is now known as Sonic Forces earlier last year, but now we finally get to see a bit of Modern Sonic’s gameplay. It looks about how we expected but still looks fun. Check out the footage below, and let us know what you expect from Sonic Forces! 18

Sonic blasts through a city under siege by Death Egg Robot sentinels in this first look at Sonic Forces. Coming this Holiday season to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC!

Steven Universe & OK K.O. come to consoles in 2017!

It isn’t a huge secret that I’m a pretty big fan of Steven Universe. The follow up to 2015’s “Attack the Light” (which we wrote a review for! You can find that here!) has been announced with a planned console release. You can spot the first gameplay footage for that below, as well as more info on Ian Jones-Quartey’s (He worked on Steven Universe!) OK K.O. video game as well!

ATLANTAMarch 9, 2017 – Turner’s Cartoon Network will expand the imaginative worlds of its hit series Steven Universe with a new console game set to release in 2017.

Five things I hate about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

With a game like Breath of the Wild, its hard to really criticize it. There’s so much content that it all just sort of makes this amazing package. That said, when I asked on Twitter & Facebook, you guys seemed to want this. So, without further rambling: Here are five things I hate about Breath of the Wild:

The grass is too nice and makes the game’s framerate drop!

While more of an inconvenience, there are small frame drops in certain areas of the game. All of our testing has shown that each time the frames drop, its in areas with a ton of tall grass.

 

 

The Lack of “Music”

This is actually sort of a system-wide issue. The Switch has very minimal music. While Zelda has music, and while present is amazing, gone are the looping tunes that really drill into your head like an earworm. There ARE music tracks however in towns and around stables, so I guess I can’t complain too much.

Rain, rain, go away.

Seriously. Never come back. At first, I loved the rain and weather system. Lightning storms are amazing and it breathes new life into Hyrule. Except for the fact of when it rains, it becomes much, much, much harder to climb. Just…just leave and never come back.

 

 

That one gyro ball puzzle.

If you’ve gotten to it, you know the one. That single puzzle broke my love for the game in that play session. It wasn’t the fact that it was badly done, the gyro controls just didn’t cooperate. For a series that has used motion controls in every title since the Wii launch, you’d think they’d have it down.

 

There’s just so much to do. There’s too much!

Everywhere you go, there’s something to do. So much to see, someone to talk to, a shrine to conquer. It’s a bit overwhelming. Sometimes a guy just wants to kill enemies and save Hyrule, you know? All of this adds to the experience, though.

 

All of these things add to a much bigger picture. One that I absolutely adore and can’t wait to continue to get lost in. I’m going to have to ask you to please continue to be patient for our Breath of the Wild review. I want to make sure that we truly get as in depth as we can!

No Pro Controller/JoyCon jokes here! 5 Pros and Cons of the Nintendo Switch!

The Nintendo Switch has now been out a full weekend and I think its fair to say I’ve spent a good amount of time with it. Well, enough to make an arbitrary list of my personal Pros and Cons of the system. These could change, of course, in the future. But enough introduction. Let’s get to the list:

Pros:

Portability is a dream.

There’s nothing quite like playing a game and being able to get up and take it with you. Every game I’ve played on the Switch looks absolutely fantastic on the screen, as well as feeling like an overall perfect way to play. Bringing a battery pack and going outside for a bit and just enjoying the air feels amazing. (If not cold, currently!)

 

 

Fantastic Indie line up.

There isn’t a ton to say about this. An absolutely huge amount of indie support is coming to the Switch, with most of it being exclusive or a timed exclusive. Shovel Knight, Flipping Death, SteamWorld Dig 2, Pocket Rumble, Stardew Valley, there’s always something for you.

 

HD Rumble

While a hard thing to explain, HD Rumble really breathes into the controls. The first time you notice it, it is a bit of a shock how amazing it gets you into the goods.

 

 

Screenshots / Meme Creator

Similar to the PS4’s Share button, the Nintendo Switch also allows you to snap a quick screenshot of the moment. The notification quickly vanishes and you can head into the gallery from the main menu. There you can add text and share via Facebook or Twitter. The editor is small, but its a ton of fun. Makes meme making easier than ever!

Couch Co-Op is back!

Possibly the best feature of the Switch is the fact that I can now take my system anywhere and instantly play with a friend for most games, no TV required. Having mobile Shovel Knight or FAST RMX co-op is amazing. I can totally see this being great in the future for making new friends.  Continue reading…

The Nintendo Switch is here! [Nintendo NYC Event Gallery]

March 3, 2017 12:00AM, That is the time the Nintendo Switch has been let loose into the yearning hands of every single Nintendo Fan. While some stood in line for a full 30 days at Nintendo NY, others dressed up as their favorite Nintendo character just to show their dedication to what they love. As the night/early morning continued everyone began opening their console for the first time. Some smelling the packaging the others tasting game cartridges. Remember kids don’t put game cartridges in your mouth. One thing they all have in common is the feeling of Christmas Eve. Therefore, the date and time of March 3, 2017 12:00AM has been called Switchmas by all.

You can find the full gallery below
