Nintendo NX reportedly delayed to 2017 to add VR functionality

Two months ago, Nintendo confirmed that its next-gen NX console would release in March 2017. This came as a shock to some gamers, as all signs were pointing to Nintendo revealing the console at E3 in June and launching it sometime this fall. But according to a new DigiTimes report, Nintendo still has plenty of work to do before it can think about bringing the console to market.

Overwatch has taken the gaming world by storm.

If you haven’t been keeping count, Overwatch is Blizzard’s third attempt to completely co-opt a genre by outdoing everyone else in the field. The first was Heroes of the Storm, the second was Hearthstone. Now shooters are under siege. More →

Just days before E3 2016, Microsoft has dropped the price of the Xbox One down to $299. Although the console has dipped down to that price range in the past, it was always for special events and promotions. This discount is also listed as lasting “for a limited time,” but the timing is very interesting.

Ghost Recon Wildlands New Trailer

‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ trailer shows off the game’s massive open world

‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ trailer shows off the game’s massive open world

Much like the characters featured in the game itself, Ghost Recon Wildlands has been surprisingly hard to find over the past several months. After being unveiled at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference last year, Wildlands immediately went into hiding, with nary a screenshot or a trailer to be found.

In fact, I’d nearly forgotten the game even existed. Until today. More →

PS4 Sales 2016

Things aren’t looking good for the Xbox One as PS4 sales top 40 million

Things aren’t looking good for the Xbox One as PS4 sales top 40 million

This console generation is unlike any that has come before it. Last cycle’s Xbox 360 from Microsoft and PlayStation 3 from Sony were neck and neck throughout the years, and lifetime sales ended up within a couple million units of each other by all counts. Then you had the Nintendo Wii, which blew them both away and topped 100 million units. But this time around it’s a completely different story. Nintendo’s Wii U is a complete disaster that’s already on its way out, and PS4 sales have nearly doubled Xbox One sales thanks in large part to a price gap and huge PR missteps early on.

Now, Sony has announced new sales numbers for its popular PlayStation 4 console and things aren’t looking good at all for Microsoft. More →

Clueless Gamer: Conan plays ‘Overwatch’ with Tyrion and Cersei Lannister

Following months of anticipation, Blizzard’s new game Overwatch launched this week.

To celebrate the launch, Conan O’Brien decided to invite Lena Headey (Cersei) and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion) of Game of Thrones fame to play a few rounds.

Please, Microsoft, bring ‘Halo 5’ to PC

Exciting news, PC gamers: 343 Industries is bringing the Forge editing tool from Halo 5: Guardians to Windows 10. This is big news not just because Forge is a great tool — it’s what it hints at for Halo 5 and PCs.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Forge, it’s a tool that allows players to create new maps and unique game types for Halo, originally introduced in Halo 3. It came to Halo 5 in the form of an update late last year, and now the developer is porting it to PC as a standalone experience, completely free to download.
