    Law Firm Investigating Grounds for 'Joy-Con Drift' Class-Action Lawsuit

    There's a lawsuit a brewin'.

    A law firm in the States are apparently getting ready to file a class-action lawsuit against Nintendo. The potential lawsuit stems from the growing anger over "Joy-Con drift" issues that have plagued the Nintendo Switch controllers since launch.

    If you don't know what Joy-Con drift is, Kotaku actually put up an article about this growing problem just this past week. In short, it's when the Switch detects movement from a stick that the player may not even be touching. For example: If the right stick controls the camera, you may notice...

    Play the role you want without issues.

    Blizzard is adding an update to their matchmaking and queuing systems for Overwatch soon. Role Queue will allow you to choose and confirm which role you would like to play before a match can even begin. Choose to be a tank, support, or damage class and their system will queue you with others who have selected the other roles.

    This will ensure that each match has players in it that will result in two tanks, two supports, and two damage characters per team. These players will then get to select heroes within their chosen roles. At...

    GORN Finally Leaves Early Access

    The violent VR gladiator sim is now a full game.

    Devolver Digital and developer Free Lives have pulled GORN out of Early Access today. The game is now a fully fledged release for SteamVR and Oculus devices. If you don't already know, GORN is a cartoony but violent gladiator sim. You are pitted against NPCs as you utilize physics based combat and weapons to beat your opponents into a pulp, quite literally.

    GORN spent roughly two years in Steam Early Access and ended up being one of the top ten games for VR as far as sales are concerned. At least, that's what they're telling...

    It's Always Sunny Mobile Game Released Today

    Yes, it's based off of the TV show.

    Of all the TV shows to get a mobile game, I doubt many expected to see one from It's Always Sunny and yet here we are. It's Always Sunny: The Gang Goes Mobile is a new Android and iOS game that tasks you with getting involved in "escalating schemes of bizarre business operations" in order to earn money. This money is earned for Frank Reynolds, who is portrayed by Danny DeVito in the TV show.

    And as the name of the game implies, the core Gang is all here: Mac, Dennis, Charlie, Dee, and Frank. And yes, there are plenty of references...

  • This is apparently coming out in August. I hadn't seen that info until well after this went up today.

    cikame The new Tegra chips have been the rumor indeed. If that is what's happening here, I imagine Nintendo won't outright say it to the public because that would, more than likely, cause some confusion with consumers. Or people getting a Switch now thinking it's "not as powerful" as this upcoming revision will get upset or something. It's just easier to say it has better battery life and leave it at that.

    A new trailer for Code Vein came out a little bit ago today. This new trailer, courtesy of Bandai Namco, focuses on yet another boss. It joins the trailer released last month that also provided a look at one of the Code Vein bosses.

    Today's video focuses on the Invading Executioner. She makes use of a big scythe for quick attacks. The Invading Executioner also makes use of water for some area-of-effect attacks, in addition to being used in order to close the distance between herself and you, the player.

    Season 4 of PUBG has a Backstory that Nobody Asked For

    This seems unnecessary.

    PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is a battle royale game that came out in 2017 as an Early Access title. In all this time, nobody once seriously questioned why 100 people were jumping out of an airplane to murder each other in remote locations. Apparently, somebody at PUBG Corp. finally raised that question because the game is getting a backstory for its upcoming fourth season.

    It is every bit as unnecessary as you are probably imagining it to be. An official "Season 4 Cinematic Trailer" for PUBG opens with a shot of a boy. This boy is...

    Original Switch Model Updated with Better Battery Life

    No other changes mentioned.

    Nintendo revealed that they are releasing an updated version of their regular Nintendo Switch soon. The only mentioned differences are the improved battery life when compared to the original model of the Switch. That is it. There are no other differences mentioned.

    The good news is that the battery life upgrades are not insignificant. At present, Nintendo says that the current Switch (HAC-001) has between 2.5 to 6.5 hours of battery life, depending on what you're playing. The new model (HAC-001(-01)) will have 4.5 to 9 hours of battery life....

    Ubisoft Reveals Over 100 Uplay+ Launch Titles

    Plus, try it free for one month.

    Back at E3, Ubisoft announced that they would soon launch their own subscription service. This service that they're calling Uplay+ would function much like EA's Access and Origin Access programs in that you will be able to pay a monthly fee to gain access to an ever growing library of old and new titles from the publisher. Really, the only major differences that I can see here is the fact that Uplay+ may not include a discount on game purchases like EA has with their Access program.

    Today, Ubisoft revealed their initial game offerings...

    No Cross-platform Play for Borderlands 3 at Launch

    Randy Pitchford finally shot that rumor down.

    A few days back, the Borderlands 3 Twitter promised an upcoming "celebration of togetherness." Many took that little teaser to mean that Gearbox was going to announce that Borderlands 3 would ship with cross-platform play support.

    Well, it doesn't have cross-platform support. Today's "celebration" was for something that really wasn't even close to cross-platform support. Yesterday, Randy Pitchford finally shot those rumors down but not before letting them simmer and stew for a few days following the tease....

    Play Dust2 like you've never played it before.

    DUSTNET is a new multiplayer deathmatch game that simultaneously resurrects and completely reimagines Dust2. And yes, when I say "Dust2" I am very much talking about de_dust2 from Counter-Strike. Only, this isn't Counter-Strike, or is it?

    DUSTNET allows cross-platform play between those on PC, those playing in VR, and those using augmented reality (AR). Players go back to the ruins of an old server that is forever stuck on de_dust2. The game has changed. The world is a sandbox and what you can do is determined...
