PlayStation Plus & Games with Gold: December 2017

Well, it happened again; I’ve been so busy that I missed the two announcements and here I am; nearly a week after the fact – just now putting up the games they announced.

No doubt you already know them (and downloaded those you want) so this article is merely for my end of year review of the services. So rather than me flog a dead donkey, I’m just gonna list the games and a sentence explaining my excitement/ambivalence. Continue reading


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!
