The Switch has done absurdly well for Nintendo. Although the hybrid console/handheld lacks the raw power of its rivals, it has sold over 120 million units, making it the second best-selling Nintendo device after the DS which sits at 154 million and the third best-selling console overall. And it doesn’t seem to be slowing down very much. Over its lifespan, there have been dozens and dozens of exclusive games released for the Nintendo Switch, many of them coming directly from Nintendo itself. Its library is an extensive list brimming with quality exclusive games.
The gaming industry is constantly evolving. Every few years we see new technological innovations that make games more impressive and easier to craft. Not only that but as our society becomes more dependent on technology and the power of online media consumption improves, we see the gaming industry adapt to these changes, too.
The constantly shifting and changing dynamic of the games industry makes it impossible to predict precisely what is coming over the next few years, but we can still make an educated guess on what will change and how. Here are some of our predictions.
The Internet is a spectacular place. At our fingertips we have the breadth of human knowledge, the ability to talk to people around the globe in an instant and a seemingly endless amount of videos where people do stupid things. Truly, it’s one of the greatest technological innovations we, as a species, have ever made. And yet it can also be a dangerous place, full of nasty infections that can get into your computer and people looking to get their grubby mitts on your private information. More than ever, it’s important to arm your computer with powerful software designed to protect it from the worst parts of the Internet. And I’m not just talking about Tik Tok.
Somehow we’ve made it to 2023, a glorious achievement for a species that seems completely intent on finding dumber and dumber ways to wipe themselves out. The last year had some pretty awesome games, though, with almost everyone getting at least one or two titles they could run home and bug their mum to buy. And the coming year looks like it’s going to be stacked with stuff to play.
Voice acting is a bastion of video games media. For decades, it has been the standard to include
voice acting performances. It can be utilised to voice characters through to narration.
Activision just recently announced Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2, a remake of the first two Tony Hawk Pro Skater games developed by Vicarius Vision, a team responsible for Crash Bandicoot and Spyro remakes. For myself this is pretty exciting because I’ve been playing the Tony Hawk games since the very beginning. While I’d still love to get a brand new entry in the series, perhaps this remake will pave the way for just that.
Since we’ve all got some extra time on your hands these days I thought I’d do something a little different and rundown what I think are the best deals on the Epic Store’s Mega Sale which is running until June 11th.
Somehow we’ve made it into a whole new decade. It’s 2020 now, and that’s problematic because I’m still struggling to remember that it’s not the early 2000’s. But anyway, with the coming of a new year means reflection on the last one. I’ve seen some people who appear quite disappointed with 2019, and while I’d certainly agree it wasn’t a vintage year there were still a lot of awesome games released. And I’m going to subject you to the horror of having to read my list of which ones I thought were the best of the best, the creme of the crop, the champions of 2019.
We’re officially past the half-way point for the year and that means it’s time to stop and take stock of what we’ve gotten so far. 2019 has had a couple of pretty good games already with a lot more awesome stuff to come, the likes of Doom Eternal promising a hell of an end to the year. That’s the future, though.
