Rumor: PlayStation 5 to have backwards compatibility according to leaked patent. Goddamn fuck yes about time!
Man, sometimes, all I want to do is play a dope-ass PlayStation 3 game on my PS4. But, I fucking can’t! No backwards compatibility. However, my dream may come true next generation.
We all knew the Nintendo Switch was a successful-ass console. But, how successful is Nintendo’s current renaissance? Soon, the motherfucker is going to pass N64’s lifetime sales.
Apple is planning a “Netflix for games” along with every other company planning the same fucking thing
Apple is apparently planning a “Netflix for Games”, my friends. This makes sense, since it seems that every fucking company is planning the same thing.
Had to sling that cheap shot at Walking Dead, right? I mean, why stop now? Been doing it for years. Seriously though, a Resident Evil series could be great! Or, it could be ass, and we could just forget about it. Very low stakes, no?
The cool: Blizzard has snagged a supremely talented writer. The worrisome: said head writer was working on Cyberpunk 2077, which still doesn’t have a fucking release date.
Organized crime is laundering money Fortnite, which is so fucking rad. I mean, I’m not saying money laundering is rad. But, something straight out of a Charles Stross novel going down in reality is pretty fucking wild. To this science-fiction and cyberpunk nerd.
EA has canceled its open-world Star Wars game, again. My goodness, my gracious. The company looked at the early-in-development title and thought to itself, “we need Star Wars movie sooner than this can yield it” and, yup, dead. EA’s handling of the Star Wars license has been a fucking travesty up until this point, and well. Why change now? Keep churning out half-baked multiplayer titles and deny the public the open-world single-player experience its clamoring for.
‘Uncharted’ movie snags ’10 Cloverfield Lane’ director Dan Trachtenberg. Super fucking solid choice, IMO
If the Uncharted movie actually ever enters production, and frankly I’ll be skeptical until it fucking happens, this is a super solid choice for director.
Sony has finally enabled cross-play for Rocket League, folks! While I don’t play the game, I must admit this development makes me happy. Why gate off the community? I mean I know there are a lot of reasons that Sony was gating off the community, but I’m gladdened to see they’ve taken it down.
Bungie has gained the publishing rights for ‘Destiny’ and left Activision. This can only be a good fucking thing, right?
Bungie has split with Activision, and they’re taking the mofuckin’ rights to Destiny with them. I don’t hate Destiny, but it’s just never been compelling to me. That said, I’m still excited by this news. Let’s see what Bungie can come up with for the future of the franchise, when they’re not having to answer to Activision and its stockholders on the regular. Right? Maybe?
