Just a few hours before the scheduled Nintendo Direct, which clocks in at around 5am PH time, has had one of its biggest announcements revealed and it’s quite a big one. By some previous leaks, it was speculated that Overwatch will be coming to the Switch and coming from rumors from Retsetera, Overwatch could be coming on the Switch by October. Overwatch is Blizzard’s massively successful team shooter, which has spawned countless accessories, merch, and even a pro league. Coming to the Switch would be a great idea, but is it a bit too late? Switch owners will surely welcome the game with open arms. No news yet on the retail price and even the performance on Nintendo’s console but if the rumors and leaks are to be believed, then Nintendo fans have one more reason to be happy about.

August was a relatively tame month in terms of games but that doesn’t mean it didn’t have it’s share of must play games like Astral Chain and Control. As September comes, so too does the start of the barrage of games that will continue until the end of the year. There’s a lot, but we’ll help you clear out the clutter as we choose our top 5 games to play for September! Final Fantasy 8 Remastered (PS4, Xbox, Switch – September 3) He’s still the most good looking guy in the room and with this remaster, Square made sure that there wouldn’t be any more memes to be made of Squall.

Borderlands 3 (PS4, Xbox – September 13) After…

The Switch being called just a port machine is no longer true. It’s library of exclusive (and non exclusive) games is growing and it features very high quality games that make the plan to purchase a Switch very appealing. On August 30, another Switch exclusive is coming out and it’s the next big game from Platinum Games called Astral Chain. Don’t know much about it? Here are some things you’ll need to know about the game before you purchase it… Then again, it’s a MUST BUY and most definitely a day 1 purchase for us! Platinum Games, ’nuff said Astral Chain is the next Nintendo Switch exclusive and it’s being Developed by Platinum Games, known for fast paced and combat heavy action games like Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Bayonetta, and Nier: Automata. As a matter of fact, the game is under the supervision of Hideki Kamiya, the genius behind Resident…

It’s not often that we get to play games from lesser known devs compared to the big triple A studios. It’s also less than likely that the studio is comprised of a team that is proudly Filipino. Well, that’s not the case anymore since as of July 23, publisher Keybol Games have released their 2D action shooting game “High Noon Revolver” on the Nintendo Switch! Check out the release date trailer below. High Noon Revolver is an action shooter that takes place across 3 layers of platforms as you collect gold and upgrades. The game looks cute but don’t be fooled, it’s quite tough and may take more than a couple of tries for you to even get past the first level! You’ll get to play as a colorful cast with unique weapons and abilities – Chickens with shotguns and robots with swords sounds colorful enough? There’s also quite a…

Nintendo has been dropping bombs lately. First with the Switch Lite, then this one. Just recently announced, a new and updated version of the Nintendo Switch is incoming which promises longer battery life. It’s not quite the “Pro” announcement we wanted, but this is still good news! The current Switch model runs at around 2.5-6.5 hours depending on a combination of game + settings but this updated model is said to run about 4.5-9 hours, at least a full 2 more hours of gameplay. As long time Switch owners, 2 hours is a HUGE deal so this is a very welcome upgrade. The new model will retail for around the same price as the launch model (around 30,000 Yen) and will release in Japan late August, and early September in Europe. No details yet of a wider North American and Asian release as of this writing. In other announcements, new…

So you just got a Nintendo Switch, or maybe you’re waiting on that recently announced Switch Lite. Either way, you’re going to want to purchase some games for it. There’s a huge library of games for the Switch as of this writing so we may not be able to cover everything. Instead, we’re here to help you choose some of the best games you’ll want to buy to get the most out of your brand new Switch! If you like Action-Adventure games… You really cannot go wrong with almost any Mario game, especially Super Mario Odyssey. The game follows Mario and Cappy as they once again journey to save Princess Peach from, you guessed it, Bowser! You’ll need to learn and use Mario’s new tricks to navigate your way around the world in search for the Princess. On average, this game will take you anywhere from 15-20 hours just for…

The Switch Lite was recently announced and we shared our thoughts about what we liked and didn’t like about it. With 1 rumor down the drain, the talks of a “Pro” version would be the next logical headline. Will it have this? Will it sport that? While everything is pure speculation at this point, we do have some things we want to see if and when a Pro version is released. Check our our wish list for a Pro version of the Nintendo Switch! Better Screen Resolution The Switch isn’t the most powerful console around. Nintendo knows that and they’ve never really competed with Sony and Microsoft on that front. With the prospect of a Switch Pro, having a screen (and internals) that can handle full 1080p (from 720p) would be a nice upgrade. Oh, and smaller bezels, please? Producing a larger unit to accommodate a bigger screen automatically kills…

The jig is up. Once a rumor, Nintendo has finally popped the lid open on the Nintendo Switch Lite. It’s been met with mixed reviews, some unwarranted but most with valid points. Everyone is expecting a beefier Switch to be announced soon after, but for now we take a deeper look into the Switch Lite. In this article, let us answer the burning question for you – Should you (or shouldn’t) get a Switch Lite? Our resident gamers and Switch owners Gian and Chris talk about the pro’s and con’s of the newly announced addition to the Nintendo line! Chris (C): Ok I’m very underwhelmed, not because I was expecting the Switch “Pro” but because I cannot objectively see why I should get a Lite. I already have the OG Switch so getting anything other than a better version of the Switch will be a downgrade for me. Even if I…

In a presentation earlier, Nintendo finally lifted the curtain on the pricing and other details regarding its newest creation, the Switch. The Nintendo Switch is a console that can be used both as a home console and on the go. A player can either dock it for use with a TV, or use the device’s main screen (which is a capacitive touchscreen). It also has detachable Joy-Con controllers on each side, enabling multi-player anywhere, anytime. Online play on the switch will be free until fall. As for the pricing and region restrictions, the Switch will set you back $300 (probably around PhP18,000 to PhP20,000 here in PH after taxes and all), is region-free, and will be available on March 3, 2017 in the US, Japan, Canada, Hong Kong, Major European Countries, and Other Territories. Package Includes: Nintendo Switch Joy-Con Game Controllers (Both Grey, or Red and Blue) Wrist Strap Grip…

It looks like Nintendo really prepped themselves for their newest gaming console. Named the Switch (final name for the NX), they claim that it allows you to play the same title anywhere, anytime, and with whoever you want. Simply put, the idea of the Switch is that at home, you can connect it to your TV and play your games with a controller, just like a regular console, and when you want to go somewhere, all you have to do is disconnect it from your TV, disconnect it from a dock, bring the console with you, and continue playing. Read that again, and you’ll go “wait, what?”, I know. It’s basically a home and handheld console in one. We don’t have news on what hardware the device runs on to be able to perform this feat (the video below shows what seems to be Skyrim being played) but it seems…
