More Switch Titles Coming in 2017, Animal Crossing Coming to Mobile

maxresdefault (4)

Reggie stated all of the following in a recent interview, regarding the Switch this year, next year, and some of their plans for Mobile gaming, including the release of Animal Crossing for Smart Devices.

 

 

Waypoint: So, Reggie, great to see you again. E3 2017 is here, and for me the big push for Switch this year, for Nintendo this year, was, at least for the Spotlight, was “Hey, we have Switch games coming. We have a lot of games coming this year, a lot of them are multiplayer focused, and by the holiday, we will have a really respectable catalogue.” And then there were also a few gestures towards the future: Yoshi, Kirby, Metroid Prime 4, Pokémon. And I’m curious what you thought of the response to those promises so far. Has that been largely positive, or mixed, or–

Reggie Fils-Aimé: The response to what we’ve showcased, and it really is just a small tip for 2018, has been exceptionally positive. You’ve got fans seeing Metroid Prime 4, hearing that Mr. Tanabe, who’s been involved in all of the Metroid Prime games, is going to be at the helm of that, the fans are tremendously excited. To hear that there’s going to be a core Pokémon RPG experience on the Nintendo Switch, the fans are incredibly excited. To see a traditional Kirby experience, with him inhaling enemies and copying abilities, fans are excited about that. And then the Yoshi game that we showcased, with that unique, you know, motion to go “behind-the-scenes,” so to speak, has people really intrigued. So just by showcasing those four games, and giving a little bit of a taste, yeah there’s a lot of excitement to what 2018 can hold.

But to be clear, we look at E3 in the here and now. Our focus is on games that are largely going to be available between now and the end of the holiday season. And when you look at that lineup, there’s a strong game coming literally every month, starting tomorrow with Arms, and then Splatoon 2, then in August is the Mario + Rabbids game, September, October with Super Mario Odyssey. We’ve got that great pace of content, and I can tell you there’s more to be announced.

Pixels – A 2015 Film About Video Games Threatening Mankind Starring Adam Sandler

RealGamerNewz - GameFlixx - Sony Pictures - Pixels Movie

In what is surely to be taken the wrong way, video games are invading the Earth and out to kill everything held sacred. What was intended to be a message of peace has now come back to bite humanity in the, well you know. An alien life force imitating video games as real life weapons against the species. Superstar talent like Adam Sandler, Kevin James (who frankly should have been listed higher on the film’s IMDB page), and a bunch of other Hollywood people you’ve probably never heard of but find strangely familiar face-wise fill out the cast.

Sony Pictures is putting this film out which will debut in theaters on July 24, 2015 in North America, August 12, 2015 in the United Kingdom, and kicks off their long line of films based on video games coming this year and over the next few. The creator of Pac-Man even gets a time to shine, somebody who I have met personally during an E3 open bar and certainly knows how to have a good time I might add!

PlayStation Now’s Monthly Price Plan Announced, Is It Too Much?

PlayStation Now Subscription

So, everyone under the sun probably wants the ability to rent games from home without needing to wait for discs to show up. But pretty much nobody agrees with the prices Sony has instated on PlayStation NOW (the digital streaming service for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita) especially for long term rentals / streams.

A great solution to this stop-gap preventing digital rentals from really prospering in the PlayStation ecosystem and making noise in the industry overall as they should be, would be to offer a cheap monthly solution similar to Netflix that didn’t require pay for each game.

Such a plan was said to be in the works for months, today Sony has finally announced that plan’s price. But is it too much? Here are the details below, followed by my own personal opinion about the service, where it is today, where it’s going, and how I feel about these price points / feature offers.

PlayStation NOW Pricing:

  • 7 Days Free Trial Offer for new PS NOW subscribers
  • $19.99 – 1 Month Access to “100+ PS3 Games”
  • $44.99 – 3 Months Access to “100+ PS3 Games”
  • OR Continue Renting At Current Prices without Monthly Access

The problem I see with this system is that users are being offered the one month option for $19.99 and feeling like it is too much, when Sony has offered the 3 Month option at a price that essentially reduces that closer to $14.99 (a price we are all too familiar with for monthly services, but has been deemed acceptable by users of services like Netflix in the past). If this could have been debuted for $14.99 a month and some sort of yearly discount like $99 a year or so, people would be much more interested.

Even though this isn’t much more than that, Americans have long had a psychological obsession with numbers in advertising that proves this theory. That’s how the entire 99 cents thing got invented, meaning – when an item costs $19.99 instead of $20.00 a psychological mind trick is being performed on you by the marketing team of that product. Sony failed to keep up with the latest in American marketing when deciding their prices.

So with that in mind, it seems Sony is $5 too high on the monthly fee, and $10 too high on the yearly fee for what people have deemed acceptable as recurring fees in their lives for services like this.

My Conclusion:

For all of the content Sony is offering, they are right to expect great profits. But those profits are going to come from a huge amount of users enjoying to get a great deal on streaming these games, not from abnormally high prices that the rest of the industry is already well beneath.

Psycho Dad Shreds Son’s Video Games in Hilarious Video

Halo-movie

No HALO??!!!

Here’s an awesome little Youtube video that’s bound to make you laugh. A Father, fed up with his son’s unwillingness to quit playing video games all day and to get a job, decides to teach him a lesson. That lesson involves the son’s gaming collection and a lawn mower.

I’m pretty sure this staged but that doesn’t stop it from being funny as hell in my mind. The son’s pleads and tantrums are so over the top, and his reaction to the utter destruction of his games is well…just watch.

 

Thanks to fellow RGN writer Jesus Melgoza for the find.

One does not simply Go Behind the Scenes in This New Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Video

Middle-Earth-Shadow-of-Mordor-New-Screenshot-shows-Talion-terrorizing-an-Orc-

A new video has been released for developer Monolith Productions’ Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. The behind the scenes interview features the voice of main protagonist Talion, Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Saints Row IV) and lead writer Christian Cantamessa (Red Dead Redemption) as they discuss working together on the game.

According to the two, everything included in the game was done so to drive the story forward. “There’s not one scene in this game that is superfluous,” explains Baker. “Everything is incredibly purposeful, and if it wasn’t, it got cut.”

Click the video below to learn more. Okay, so maybe it is a simple task after all.

 

Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor releases on October 7th for PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

In addition to launching a long-term initiative to achieve their own shipping business (starting with Amazon Dash in a limited area on the west coast by invite only), Amazon recently announced the Amazon Fire TV. With over 130 games currently available on the device, and more on the way – Amazon has released an initiative for players to pick up more and more titles for the device.

Every time gamers buy a game with the Amazon Fire TV, they will receive Amazon Coins which Amazon states are worth $10.00 per 1,000 coins (or $1.00 for 100 coins for example). In the long run, Amazon states that this saves Amazon Fire TV gamers “save up to 10%” similarly to the Kindle Fire App service that gives Amazon Coins for purchases as well.

If you haven’t seen, the exclusive title currently announced for the Amazon Fire TV is Sev Zero which can be obtained for free upon purchase of the Amazon Game Controller. Stay tuned to our Amazon Fire TV Section for more info / vids as they become available.

Titanfall Beta Confirmed for Xbox ONE and PC

Titanfall

After the leak yesterday, Respawn Entertainment confirmed that a TitanFall beta is being developed for the Xbox One and PC. No dates were given, but Vince Zampella has promised more information in the coming days. A French retailer advertising a TitanFall beta has been leaked online. The poster says that the beta will start on February 14, but only last until February 19th. There is no way to know for sure if these dates are true or not.

There is no beta being developed for the Xbox 360 version of the game. The studio developing the Xbox 360 version was also finally revealed, and it is Bluepoint Games. Hopefully, they will do a good job making TitanFall the best it can be. Windows 7 and Windows 8 are both supported for TitanFall which will require an EA Origin account similarly to Battlefield.

TitanFall on PC is Now Available as a Pre-Order From GamersGate.com with bonus rewards.
