    Nintendo Realistically speaking, what games do you still expect to come to Switch?

    Xenoblade Chronicles X is the only one that matters at this point.

    The Video Game Awards

    Oh boy... The GotY nominations are surprisingly varied this year. While the majority are "AAA", openworld games, it's nice to see two indie games make the cut. That aside, it's fairly obvious that the two big contenders are Elden Ring and God of War: Ragnarok, with Horizon: Forbidden West and...

    Games that you respect but don’t like playing.

    Shadow of the Colossus is a big one for me. It's one of the earliest "openworld" design concepts that come to mind and the notion of scaling giant titans has always been intriguing. Albeit musically sparse, the soundtrack is often regarded as iconic with its epic, sweeping orchestral...

    Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

    Well, this entire company is a sad state of affairs... Releasing a half-baked product early just to make it in before the holiday earnings report is pretty on the nose for GF at this point. Doesn't matter, though, since they'll still make oodles off it before the year is up.

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    I'm in agreement that Nintendo has the final say, but removing Xenoblade from the equation would not magically make room for a renaissance of older titles. Nintendo has made partnerships with outside developers that proved to be successful; perhaps it's time they started doing that again. No, I...

    Because... Canceling Xenoblade would not suddenly open up the floodgates for "abandoned" projects such as F-Zero, Kid Icarus, or Golden Sun. Nintendo as it is would suffer without MonolithSoft's technical expertise, which they've used Xenoblade to hone to near perfection just by getting XC3 to...

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    The fact that MonolithSoft has been able to release Xenoblade Chronicles 3 in such a complete state is a marvel. They've been busy carrying the weight of many flagship franchises such as Animal Crossing, Kirby, Splatoon 3, and Zelda to top it all off. XC3 got released in the middle of a drought...

    The Nintendo Direct News And Discussion Thread

    Xenoblade Chronicles 3 DLC will probably headline the Direct, and then I'm hoping BotW2 will finally get a title drop. Silksong release date would be a nice surprise. There's also word on a Metroid Prime 1 remaster, but it would be ideal for a package of all three bundled together.

    Splatoon 2.5 is the more accurate title here. There's still not that much to make it stand apart from the second game aside from some incremental additions. One of the things they could have improved is the hub world, but it's still small in scope and lacking depth. Inklings have all these cool...

    "The JRPG" is simply coming out sooner, just like when Splatoon 2, Smash Ultimate, and New Horizons got dedicated Directs. This is not the end of the world. You don't have to be a fan, but nor do you have to talk down on it just because it isn't an interest to you.

    Oh, so you'd rather have Xenoblade 3 take up about 10 minutes of the Direct? BotW 2 got pushed back to next year so of course XC3 would be a priority in the meantime. It's a business decision that Nintendo made to keep it separate from the main fare, which is rumored to come out next week. Just...

    China limiting videogaming hours for kids. Do you really care?

    Small correction: China is only limiting the weekly playtime to 3 hours for online games. Anyone below the age of 18 is subject to this "law", and it shouldn't affect offline, single-player games that much, unless the government is also restricting how those are dispensed. However, the...

    Game design that never should have happened

    Live-service or "free-to-play" games that solely exist to hide its content behind paywalls or grindy battle passes. While it's fun to play with friends or randos online, these models discourage imagination in the industry as a whole. It's made even worse when in-game stores get added to...
