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!

Nintendo have done it again! 

SNES-Classic.pngLast year we saw the release of the NES mini; a plug and play console that contained 30 games that were perfectly emulated and had that Nintendo ‘magic’; that je ne c’est quoi that make people lose their minds and “have” to own it.

What happened will go down in legend, like the Buzz Lightyear farce of ’93, Nintendo completely underestimated demand and the thing sold out as it touched down on shop floors leading to extreme stock shortages. It caused out-roar on the internet as people struggled to secure their console and those who were interested in it (including me) could never hope to acquire one without giving in the outrageous prices scalpers were asking.   Continue reading

E3 2017 Round Up and Thoughts: Nintendo

img_3433Nintendo have avoided doing a press conference at E3 for the last 3 years now, instead opting to do a Nintendo Direct, which up until this year – hasn’t really paid off for them. The reason behind this is simple; they spend too much time on one game and neglect to have a strong support of smaller titles to keep us interested. While they didn’t stray too far from this template; what they did show was incredibly strong and exciting for Switch owners and those hoping to buy one in the near future.   Continue reading

Nintendo to release a SNES Mini Classic this year 

Eurogamer have a source who has revealed that Nintendo are to release a SNES Classic Mini in 2017.

This news comes just days after Nintendo discontinued the NES Mini Classic worldwide and it does explain that move. 

This rumour certainly has some weight to it as well. It was Eurogamer and their source who broke the news about the NES Mini months before it was officially announced! 

They know their stuff so watch this space! 

We can assume that this will follow the same format as the NES Classic featuring 30 games, HDMI output, display options and super short controller cables! 

If this does come to be true I’ll be preordering it because I don’t want to miss this at all!
