  • Nintendo Switch Sales Hit 80,000 Units in UK

    Nintendo Switch Sales Hit 80,000 Units in UK

    Nintendo revealed that the recently released Switch hit 80,000 units sold throughout the UK in its opening weekend. To put that into perspective, that figure is double the number of Wii U consoles that were sold during its opening weekend in 2013. Sadly, it fell well short of the 113,000 figure mark that the Nintendo 3DS sold during its debut weekend. It also didn't come close to hitting the 150,000 units sold by the Xbox One launch or the 250,000 hit by the PlayStation 4 launch. The...

  • Airport Master Developer Bullying Consumers; Has Limited Understanding of Fair Use Law

    This past week, STICLI Games, the developers of Airport Master on Steam decided they wanted to kill off any chance at fame and fortune that their game might have had. I say this because they have been going after consumers that have uploaded commentary filled and critique filled gameplay videos to YouTube with trademark and copyright claims. It doesn't matter if the videos show the game in a positive light or a negative one, if you upload videos with gameplay footage from Airport Master,...

    New Overwatch Hero Orisa Added to PTR

    Blizzard released a new PTR for Overwatch today that adds in a new hero, Orisa. This four-legged robot was designed by 11-year-old Efi Oladele and is the game's newest tank hero.
    Orisa's main weapon is her rapid-fire Fusion Driver, an automatic gun with good range and accuracy even at a distance—though it comes at a cost, as Orisa’s movement slows down while she fires. Her alternate fire, Halt!, launches a graviton charge across the map, slowing nearby enemies as it passes, then

    by Shawn Zipay
    An announcement is expected to take place soon.

    For a little while now, rumors suggested that Xbox will begin to offer many of their first-party titles on competing hardware platforms. Just this week, those rumors were given more substance from a number of sources that say games such as Starfield, Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Hi-Fi Rush, and even Gears of War could end up on PlayStation 5 and the Nintendo Switch.

    If these new reports are to be believed, these first-party...
