Nintendo planning to heavily increase Switch hardware production in 2018. Apparently they like money more than scarcity
Nintendo got themselves some fucking plans in 2018 to ramp up Switch production. Not exactly a fucking controversial move, here. You know, given that the console dropped two of the best reviewed games since I sprouted pubes in the same fucking year.
‘Assassin’s Creed Origins’ has already doubled the initial sales of the previous installment. Dare I say, killing the sales charts
The latest AssCreed has doubled the sales of the previous title across the same launch period. Drink that the fuck in. I’m not surprised though, because everything I’ve read about Assassin’s Creed Origins suggests that at the very least, it’s fun. A reinvention of a viscous formula? Not quite. However, the impression seems that the franchise benefitted from actually, oh I don’t know, taking a fucking year off. So, here’s hoping that Ubisoft makes the connection between the uptick in sales, and the deannualization of AssCreed.
Electronic Arts is acquiring Respawn Entertainment, the studio behind Titanfall. Now the clock is ticking, folks. Let’s see how long it takes the Behemoth to suck all the marrow out of this recently purchased studio. Let’s see how long before its carcass can be thrown onto the heap alongside the shit-soaked ruins of BioWare and the desiccated husk of Visceral Games.
Games as services, bay-bee! Games as fucking transaction machines, bay-bee! Even if you hate both of these models, you better get used to them. ‘Cause they’re the goddamn profit engines for countless gaming companies, such as Take-Two.
‘Grand Theft Auto V’ is now the best-selling game ever in the United States. Passing, uh, ‘Wii Sports’
Folks, Grand Theft Auto V is now the best-selling game ever in the United States. I suppose it’s not really that surprising. You know, given the game’s popularity, and its tethering to the perpetual moneymaker that is GTA Online. However, do you know what is surprising to me? Fucking Wii Sports was the previous best seller.
Blizzard is finally giving fans something they’ve wanted, and created for themselves for a while now. That’s right fuckaroos, World of Warcraft is getting its own “Vanilla” servers.
Blizzard has announced the next expansion pack for World of Warcraft. It’s titled Battle for Azeroth, and it’s once again got them Alliance and Horde folks beefing.
Man. Nintendo having a fucking year, dude.
I know I’m late getting to this God of War trailer from Paris Games Week. But, I’m fucking glad I got around to it.
Sucker Punch has dropped a trailer for their next game, Ghost Of Tsushima, and the shit looks hype. The company has never been up there with Naughty Dog or Bethesda for me. However, I’ll be good goddamned if they don’t consistently churn out enjoyable titles.
