According to Smite’s developers, Baba Yaga was added to the game due to overwhelming community support after being the most highly requested god in Smite history. In speaking about Baba Yaga’s arrival, Svetlan Lisik, the Russian Translation & Community Specialist at Hi-Rez Studios, said:
“Baba Yaga is certainly one of the most prominent characters in Slavic folklore. It’s amazing how excited about Baba Yaga’s release all the community is, and especially Russian-speaking fans. I'm glad to see that the SMITE Goddess they anticipated the most is now living up to their highest expectations!”
Apparently Baba Yaga has some pretty chaotic and even eerie abilities, all of...
Crytek has finally confirmed that Crysis Remastered is, in fact, happening, and it did so by releasing the teaser trailer you see above.
The trailer shows very little in term of game footage – just a few seconds to be exact. We do get a quick glimpse of Nomad in the jungle, which is enough to get the blood pumping a bit. We also have confirmation that Crysis Remastered is coming to PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch, the latter of which represents the first time a Crysis game has ever been on a Nintendo System.
The trailer comes just one day after some sketchy looking leaks via the official Crysis page indicated that an announcement of the remaster could be imminent. Our entire team of journalists thought it was a bunch of malarkey, but as it turns out we were wrong. The most surprising part of all this has to be the fact that it’s also going to launch on the Switch. After all, who would have thought that a game that once made the...
Nintendo just rolled out Switch Firmware 10.0.0, and with it came button remapping and the much-needed ability to transfer games from internal storage to SD card. There was a little something hidden away inside that firmware update, and it was found by a seasoned dataminer known as Mike Heskin who found preliminary support for a new model codenamed “nx-abcd.”
Now, that codename does sound about as far from legitimate as possible, but it’s actually inline with previous codenames for various switch devices, including nx-abca, nx-abca2, nx-abcb, and nx-abcc. Nintendo has already gone on record and said that the Nintendo Switch is only halfway through its life cycle and isn’t considered with the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 4, so this is a little strange, but we could be looking at a more premium model – one with dual displays, if you can believe that.
In Heskin’s tweet above, he mentions the new DRAM profiles, but the most important part is the “evidence” of a secondary display. Of course, he didn’t elaborate on what this evidence is,...
Nintendo has started rolling out a major firmware update to the Switch and Switch lite consoles, and the most important takeaway is that you’ll now be able to transfer software data (game installs) between the internal memory and the SD card – something that once required you to delete the game and redownload to accomplish.
On top of this, there’s now the option to remap the controller buttons, something that is ideal for a number of games, a new section for Play Activity Settings, some new icons for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and a number of stability improvements.
Here are the official patch notes for Switch Firmware Version 10.0.0:
Added a bookmark feature to News.This feature allows you to bookmark your favorite news items.
A maximum of 300 news items can be bookmarked.An internet connection is required to view bookmarked News items.News items that are no longer available cannot be viewed, even if they were bookmarked.
Added an option to transfer software data between the system memory and an SD card.
Users can now transfer downloadable software, update data, and...
We recently told you that Bioshock, XCOM2, and Borderlands Legendary Collections were coming to the Nintendo Switch, and now we’ve learned that The Borderlands Collection won’t suffer from art asset degradation and will be able to run at 1080P while delivering 30 FPS with ease. Even better yet, the developer has added in motion controls specific to the Nintendo Switch console.
Word of this comes direction from Turn Me Up, one of the companies involved in porting Borderlands Legendary Collection over to the Nintendo Switch.
“We worked tirelessly with 2K and Gearbox to bring these ravenously requested classics to Switch in full 1080p, at 30 FPS and with no downgrading of art assets. On top of that, we included all the trimmings of the GOTY releases — and newly developed motion controls specifically built for this incredible collection.”
This is actually a huge development when you consider what happened to Borderlands 2 when it launched on the PS Vita way back when. At the time, the PS Vita wasn’t capable of handling such an intense game, so...
The Super Mario Series launched wat back in 1985 and this year marks Mario’s 35th anniversary. New reports coming from both VGC and Eurogamer, claim that Nintendo is going to celebrate by remastering and re-releasing most of Super Mario’s back catalog for the Nintendo Switch. This news was supposed to break during E3 2020 in June, but that has since bee canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, so Nintendo is reportedly considering a digital showcase instead.
If Nintendo is really going to follow through with this, and
we really hope they do, here’s a partial list of what we could get on Switch
1992 – Super Mario Word1992 – Super Mario Land 2 1997 – Super Mario 642002 – Super Mario Sunshine2006 – New Super Mario Bros. 2007 – Super Mario Galaxy2009 – New Super Mario Bros. Wii2010 – Super Mario Galaxy World2011 – Super Mario 3D Land2012 – New Super Mario Bros 22012 New Super Mario Bros. U2013 Super Mario 3D World
And, the list goes on folks. If any or all of these games
A new announcement from 2K Games signals the arrival of
BioShock: The Collection, Borderlands: Legendary Collection, and XCOM2
Collection to the Nintendo Switch. The best part is that we won’t have to wait
very long, as all three collections are set to be released on May 29, 2020 –
just two months from now. Home isolation or not, Spring 2020 just got a little
Bioshock: The Collection on Nintendo Switch
When BioShock: The Collection lands on Nintendo Switch, it’ll
be a re-release of the trilogy that came to PC, PS4, and Xbox One back in 2017.
This trilogy includes the original BioShock, BioShock 2, and BioShock Infinite.
With all three games, we’ll also receive every single paid DLC that was ever
Borderlands Legendary Collection on Nintendo Switch
While BioShock comes to Switch as a re-release, Borderlands
Legendary Collection is an all-new buddle that was created specifically for the
Nintendo Switch. It comes with the original Borderlands, Borderlands 2, and
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. As is the case with the BioShock collection, all
DLCs and add-ons previously released for this trilogy will also be included.
The only question now...
Some people ran out and bought up enough toilet paper to last for years, other people bought up as much food as they could get their hands on. As it turns out, a lot of people decided they needed a Nintendo Switch during this time of isolation and quarantine. So much so, in fact, that the Nintendo Switch is pretty much sold out everywhere. The Nintendo Switch light can still be found in some place, but even it is sold out on Amazon. The worst part is that Nintendo doesn’t know when more will make it into stores.
In a statement to Gamespot, Nintendo gave a very brief
“Nintendo Switch hardware is selling out at various retail locations in the U.S., but more systems are on the way. We apologize for any inconvenience.”
So, given the nature of what’s
going on in the world today, there’s probably a good chance that we won’t see
the Nintendo Switch arrive in retail outlets for some time. You can find the occasional
unit on Amazon, but you’ll have to pay $439...
As a third-person multiplayer that promises an antiheroic twist on co-op PvP games, Rogue Company has a lot of expectations to meet. Now, Hi-Rez has released the first gameplay trailer and it’s a thing of beauty. Well, beauty and brutal gunplay, of course.
For those of you that are unaware, Rogue Company was
announced back on September 5, 2019 as part of Nintendo Direct and this new
gameplay trailer is the first update we’ve had since November. In the game, you’ll
play as a team of Mercenaries that all feature their own unique abilities and
arguably shady tactics. We’ve learned that the female of the group, for
instance, can silence her footsteps for stealthy hand-to-hand attacks while
another will scatter barbed wire traps. Of course, this is a PvP game, so your
opponents will have the same capabilities.
As you can see from the trailer, the game wil be packed full
of environmental hazards. We spotted auto-firing security panels and the wrong
zipline could send you right through a body-cubing laser grid – and this is
just the tip of the iceberg. You’ll also...
A big update is coming to Warframe, and it includes some features that were first showcased at Tennocon 2019. Operation Scarlet Spear, as it’s called, will run for four weeks in total, starting today, March 24 and extending to April 21, 2020.
For this event, The AI entities known as Sentients will land in Warframes’s spaceship combat mode where you’l be attacked inside your Railjack ships by various boarding parties. If you don’t think this sounds too tough, well then you need to be aware that these Sentient boarding parties are much smarter than the current alien enemies. They can even disrupt and disable ship systems, which will require you to work with other players to clear the ship and get moving again
And, this is where the limits to four-player squads comes
into play. Currently, four-player squads are the limit, but now there’s a new
way to add more players to a mission. A feature called Operation Link, found in
the new Operation Room will allow players to team up. If it sounds familiar,
that’s because this...
