SMASH BROS RUMOR OF THE WEEK

 

Discussion

Kaz – Microsoft introduced their new ‘adaptive controller’, aimed at making gaming more accessible to folks with disabilities.

It’s really neat, and they’re keeping it open source and are encouraging other people to build on it, even Sony/Nintendo. Very cool initiative. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fcK19CAjWM

 

Kyle – Sony is ending production of physical Vita cartridges in February of 2019. Final code requests have to be submitted next month. RIP Vita.

Kyle – Boss Key Productions is officially closed, per Cliff Blezinski on Twitter. Lawbreakers and Radical Heights just weren’t enough, I guess.

William – Nintendo released the details for Nintendo Switch Online

Featuring family plans, cloud saves, old games, and no Virtual Console. But $20 ain’t bad.

Kyle – Walmart Canada accidentally ‘leaked’ (aka posted) a bunch of games. Some of them seem real, others perhaps not.

William – Well, we don’t have to speculate about what Sony’s showing at E3

Unless you think they have some surprises.  Death Stranding, Ghost Of Tsushima, Marvel’s Spider-Man, and The Last of Us 2

Podcast THING OF THE WEEK

E3 PREDICTIONS!

 

Kyle

  • Gear of War 5. Halo 6 probably isn’t a thing this year given 343’s saying they want to take more time, and Microsoft NEEDS something new to anchor their presentation.
  • The Last of Us 2: Battle Royale (I’m not sure if I’m joking or not)
  • Kingdom Hearts 3 release date, and it’ll be in 2018
  • Square will announce a sequel to a beloved franchise, but with no release date. Maybe the World Ends With U2?
  • Nintendo will announce a new peripheral that no one asked for
  • Dr. Mario Switch? I dunno, it feels right.

 

William

Fire Emblem Switch, we might see some MP4 footage, we’ll see

I’ll predict Halo for you, Kyle

If there isn’t any FFVII remake footage, it’s not coming out until 2030

 

Kaz

  • Bloodborne 2 trailer/date
  • Death stranding gameplay
  • New elder scrolls something
  • Cyberpunk 2077
  • Animal crossing switch
  • Diablo 4, save it for blizzcon
