Todd saw a lot to love at the big Nintendo Switch event, but he’s still on the fence about a few things. The odd way Nintendo is planning to parcel out free games, limited battery life and apparently weak third-party support are troubling. Then again, there is new Zelda and Mario. Will the Switch be hitting with gamers?
Welcome back for Part Two of Todd’s annual hardcore awards. Last week we celebrated all the special recognition awards, and now it’s time to get to what you all want to see, Todd’s picks for the best and worst games of the previous year. Thankfully, there are plenty in both categories to go around!
It’s that time of year again. Todd is back with his Hardcore awards. This week, in part one, we learn the, sort of, winners of all the special categories. Who will be crowned the Badass and Dumbass of the year? Dive in and find out.
Remember last week when Todd was bummed about resellers bumping up the price of the NES Classic Mini? Well, his troubles are over. Now he’s on to something better in the field of retro gaming: the Retro-Bit Generations console.
Every year it seems like some game company artificially creates shortages to boost interest in a hot product, with the big N usually involved. But it’s the resellers who mostly benefit, marking up prices for everyone else. This year’s target: Nintendo’s NES Classic Mini.
Todd was finally coming around to Sony again, especially because of their superior Sony Vue TV service. But now a new PSN attack has everyone on the defensive, and the company’s treatment of affected gamers is rubbing potential new fans the wrong way.
This week Todd says goodbye to his cable TV provider. But what to replace it with? After trying several services, he zeros in on PlayStation Vue, where he is pleasantly surprised by the quality of the programming and low costs. Who knew PlayStation did TV so well too?
Todd’s friend and Xbox personality Ashleigh Ryan, also known as Venus Envy, was recently stripped of the gamertag she has used for over a decade. Microsoft calls it offensive. Todd calls it bone-headed censorship.
October means crisp Fall air, colorful leaves and even Halloween. But it also means a slew of new games being released, leading many gamers to dub it “Broketober.” What’s the best way to spend your game money?
Sony is in the lead of the current generation of console sales, but a series of bad decisions like not allowing mods for Bethesda games, and weird ones like no 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player on the PlayStation 4 Pro, has got Todd wondering if the console giant is sabotaging its own success.
