Discussion topics

HYPE TRAIN *toot toot*

  • Darksiders 3 is out! It’s getting pretty mixed reviews, but I’m just glad it exists.
  • The MediEvil remake got a trailer, and it looks… okay?
  • Kingdom Hearts 3 has gone gold!
  • The Game Awards are going to have world reveals for 10+ games. Definitely tune in!

SMASH BROS RUMOR OF THE WEEK

  • The whole game is leaked now, courtesy of sketchy Mexican retailers. There’s only one week to go!

Discussion:

Sony is skipping E3 in 2019.

Crazy, they usually have a huge presence there. This’ll change the show dramatically. Any bets on if others follow suit?

Fallout 76 happened, and the whole thing is a dumpster fire.

From giving $5 to people who bought the collector’s edition because it sucks so bad to issuing apologies before the game even released.

The Switch became the best selling Nintendo console over Black Friday week—it moved 117% of the units the Wii did its first holiday season.

Good signs for the future of the system. Nintendoomed indeed.
