Nintendo announce a 2DS XL

Despite the launch of the Switch it seems Nintendo aren’t done with their DS handheld systems. Much like the 3DS XL, the new 2DS XL will benefit from a larger screen… oh, and this time out hinges. It seems like a pretty great addition to the DS line, and it comes in some pretty awesome colour combos, with blue and black shown in the US trailer and white and gold surfacing on Nintendo&#...[Read More]

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe launches today, here’s how to unlock the secret character

If you haven’t checked it out yet, we gave Mario Kart 8 Deluxe a solid review score and a praise filled write up, saying the game is pretty much in the must own category for Switch owners who crave multiplayer action. Part of the praise was reserved for the various difficulty settings within the game, with the hardest being the almost map breaking 200cc. Navigating courses at that speed can ...[Read More]

Here’s the first trailer for Call of Duty: WW2

The new Call of Duty game was originally revealed to be Call of Duty: WW2 last week after a series of leaks and then an official post on Twitter, but overnight Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games hosted a livestream that dropped some more specific details. The most prominent aspect of that livestream was the first official trailer for the game, which you can view below. It boasts that the ...[Read More]

Star Wars Battlefront II looks like it’s learned from the mistakes of the first

This morning we were treated to a trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II, which for reasons that escape me isn’t called Star Wars Battlefront IV. A sequel to Battlefront‘s 2015 reboot, which had just a few problems, it looks like DICE/EA have learned from the past. The first reboot was a pretty lackluster experience, sure it looked amazing, but the gameplay was severely limited. With no ...[Read More]

Buying now will also net you some bonus digital content for free.

A detailed look at Project Scorpio and the future of Xbox

As we discussed last night, Digital Foundry, one of the biggest critics of the Xbox One’s paltry power (and there are a lot of critics), was invited by Microsoft for an exclusive look at Scorpio’s specifications and benefits. Now it’s time for a slightly deeper look into what the future of Xbox One will look like. If you’re into hardware, prepare to have your mind blown at what a console can...[Read More]

Project Scorpio’s beefy specs ran a Forza demo at 4K/60fps

Digital Foundry just revealed the final specs of Project Scorpio, Microsoft’s candidate in the whole “mid generation upgrade” console trend, and boy does it sound like a beast. Scorpio will be running a GPU with more compute units and a higher clock speed than the PS4 Pro, a custom eight core CPU, and 12GB of RAM. According to Digital Foundry’s Richard Leadbetter, Project S...[Read More]

So it was announced randomly the other day that Digital Foundry would be revealing the specs for Microsoft’s Project Scorpio, their upgraded Xbox One announced last year at E3. The video is now online, and you can watch it here! It’s pretty dense, so buckle up. We’ll report more as we have it.

The high cost of free games

Sniper Assassin: Shoot To Kill is a free-to-play mobile game in which you select a gun from hundreds of options and shoot people from a long distance. That’s pretty much it. You cannot run, or duck, or move at all other than taking aim. You cannot speak, and other than single-sentence mission briefings and offers of new weapons, no-one speaks to you. There is no strategy other than deciding who to...[Read More]
