The best version will be the Switch one in terms of performance, and having the ability to play it on the go is also pretty nice. I wouldn't advise buying a Switch only to play Zelda, but if you have both platforms, I don't see much of a reason to play the Wii-U one over the Switch version.

I wish EA would go with Titanfall 2 instead. I understand that Battlefield is a much bigger franchise, and that BR1 has pretty mush destroyed Titanfall 2 in sales, but the shooting is much smoother and feels better in Titanfall than in BF1. There's also the fact that it'd be much easier to make a true competitive mode in T2 than in BF1.

Price is relative, it won't sell no matter of inexpensive it is if the specs and the games aren't there, and it could sell very well at a higher price point if they are. I'd much rather spend 3-400$ for a well designed console with solid battery life and specs that will allow it to remain relevant for a few years than waste 250$ on a weak home console that can't be used for more than an hour on its battery.

Obviously, if Nintendo can do both, that would be ...

If true, Zelda missing the Switch launch would be quite disappointing. Packing Splatoon with the platform on the other hand is a great idea as it would ensure a healthy player base for this multiplayer focused game.

329CAD for a beefed up portable Wii-U is something I'd buy with no hesitation.

Hopefully the Switch kills the 3DS, doing so would mean that Nintendo could focus on one platform as opposed to 2.
The Switch needs all the first party support it can get.

I'm pretty sure we can see a cartridge being inserted in the device in the video.

I wouldn't mind them adding some select mw2 and mw3 maps. It could be interesting to turn this remaster into a best of type of collection over the next couple of years.

Battlefield has received plenty of praise from those who have played it, Titanfall 2 on the other hand has received a mixed reaction from those who participated in the technical test. Battlefield has been around for ages now and is a very well known IP, Titanfall 2 isn't, or at least, not as much. I really don't understand why EA would be more optimistic about Titanfall 2. It's almost as if those in management who wanted to shoot down a pre-WW2 Battlefield still can't get behi...

Well that isn't very surprising. The release date certainly isn't helping, with both Battlefield One and Call of Duty coming out only weeks away from Titanfall 2. Add to that the fact that ever since its reveal, Battlefield One has received some very positive coverage, while Titanfall has received some mixed reactions. It's also worth noting that out of the three games, Titanfall is the least well known.

And, while I haven't tried the technical test of Titan...

Too bad EA shut down Westwood; Petroglyph Games simply haven't made games nearly as good and enjoyable as the old Command and Conquer games (including the Red Alert series). And, for the most part, the same can be said about EALA (or EA Pacific).

While Earth and Beyond was a flop, I still think in the long run it would have been more profitable for EA to keep Westwood as it was, doing so might have saved the Command and Conquer franchise from falling into mediocrity.

Well, Jim is one of the few reviewers I trust to be honest in his reviews. I might not always agree with him, but at least I'm confident he's not basing his reviews purely on getting hits on his website (as it's ad-free and patreon supported) or being paid by publishers.

With that being said, a 5/10 seems a bit harsh. I can't wait to actually read the review itself, seeing how the website seems to have crashed.

I really wish Microsoft would make their entire catalog BC-compatible. I understand that third-party published games may take a while to be BC, and some likely never will make it, but there's no reason as to why games like Crackdown, Lost Odyssey or Ninety-Nine Nights aren't already on the list as they all are Microsoft-published games.

I'm guessing by now that we're not getting Crackdown and its sequel in BC until Crackdown 3 launches. And I guess Microsoft has no interest in making Ninety-nine nights BC compatible. Or Lost Odyssey for that matter.

I understand that they need the publisher's approval before allowing a title to be BC, but there are quite a few Microsoft published games that have yet to be enabled, some of which were quite entertaining back in the day too.

The GO games they are making are well suited for touch controls, are based on established franchises, are original games as opposed to being a poor adaptation of an existing title and can be quite fun to play. They are also priced fairly, unlike other games (including many by SE).

Once more developers start to develop their mobile games with the touchscreen in mind rather than developing the game first and putting an on-screen gamepad overlay afterwards, we'll start see...

If that's the main reason behind the Neo, one would assume Microsoft is in a similar situation as both are being supplied bu AMD.

I don't think it will beat Call of Duty in sales this year. I know that both are military shooters, but one is built around arcade style, arena-sized maps with no vehicles, while the other one is about larger maps (although dwarfed by other games like ArmA3) and some vehicles. Two different styles of game play, two similar but somewhat different audiences as well.

Bigger isn't necessarily better, it's just a matter of preferences. I must say that choosing an alt...

Will get Uncharted on PS4 and Overwatch on PC. Homefront looks decent enough, but I'll probably wait for a sale or a price drop for it, same for Total War, which I totally forgot was coming out this month.

Microsoft already has a platform ready for VR, it's called Windows.

The one thing I think can be considered an annoyance by some gamers, is the fact that Hitman will be a 60$ game for much longer than most games.

By releasing the disc version next year, they just made sure their game would be a 60$ title for about a year, since I highly doubt they'll release it below that price point. It's also effectively killing the used games market for about 9 months.
