Frightfest 2017: Horror games that stopped being scary after their opening hour

cooltext262448911001401Welcome to this year’s Frightfest!

DOOM on Nintendo Switch gets a release date, and it’s really close!

Nintendo today announced (via twitter) the release date for the Switch port of 2016’s brilliant version of DOOM and it is bloody close!

November 10th is only 3 short weeks away and it makes the Switch’s Christmas lineup look absolutely amazing!

In the next 2 months we have Mario Odyssey (currently getting 10/10s everywhere), Fire Emblem Warriors, LA Noire, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Skyrim, Resident Revelations 1 & 2 and now DOOM all coming to the system! It is an incredible lineup with a game for every possible gamer (and we’re disregarding all that has been released in 2017 already for Christ sake!)

This is a gigantic difference from Christmas 2015 when I wrote an article about them giving up on the holiday!

Fair play to Nintendo for really driving home the support for the Switch and I hope they have an absolutely amazing Christmas. You Switch owners certainly aren’t hard up for things to play, if anything you’ve got too much!
