Nintendo Direct + Pax 2016 & More!

What is this? It's the starting point of something new.

Go ahead and jump right into this one and enjoy... (don't forget to grab some snacks)!

Nintendo has some games in this Nintendo 3DS Direct that I definitely want to get.
They need to start playing more and more hardball if they want to increase the revenue,
and if the recent experience is a wake up call more so than denial... that's a great thing.

PAX action anyone?

Call of Duty XP Global Briefing

From the outside looking in... ReCore looks like it has what it takes to be a strong action puzzle adventure with an approach that can be appreciated for being different enough. If the story is amazing, it stands to be a great base for future installments.

Bring on the... HORDE 3.0! (Gears of War 4)
