Super Mario Maker 2 is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer

Many Super Mario Maker fans were hoping today's Nintendo Direct would include an announcement for a Switch remake of the beloved level-builder. Super Mario Maker 2 is on the way, and it's coming to Switch this June. The tablet-style interface of the original Super Mario Maker is a perfect match for the Switch's handheld mode, so I wouldn't expect many systemic changes in Super Mario Maker 2. We don't know much else about Super Mario Maker 2 at this point, but we still know a heck of a lot more t

Harmonix’s new game is a VR rhythm shooter called Audica

When last we heard from Rock Band studio Harmonix several years ago, it was working on a musical shooter called Chroma. That has apparently fallen by the wayside, however, as the studio announced today that its next project will be a VR "rhythm shooter" for the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift called Audica—and it will be out on Steam Early Access in March. The Early Access release will have a soundtrack of ten licensed songs with four difficulties each, one environment and one weapon set, and live lead

Apple’s video streaming service could launch without Netflix and HBO content

Apple’s long-rumored video content streaming service could launch as early as April – and without either Netflix or HBO – CNBC reports . However, CNBC reports that HBO is not as far along in partnership discussions as these aforementioned networks for reasons unknown. It's unclear whether that will impact its availability on Apple's service. Likewise, neither Netflix nor Hulu are expected to be part of Apple’s service, CNBC sources say, just as they aren’t available on Amazon’s Prime Video Chann

Every headset designed for Windows Mixed Reality has the same specifications, with the exception of Samsung's Odyssey headsets.

WWI shooter Tannenberg is out today

With the dramatic new trailer above, Tannenberg has left Steam Early Access. At the time of writing, the 64-player WWI shooter has attracted 241 concurrent players, and I was able to join a half-full match on a US server quickly after completing the 5.4 GB download. Tannenberg comes from Verdun creators Blackmill Games and M2H, and has been in Early Access since late 2017. Where Verdun takes place on WWI's Western Front, Tannenberg shifts to the east, with Russian, Romanian, Austro-Hungarian, Ge

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey gets New Game+, giving you a chance at a different story

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey isn't getting you Valentines flowers for February. Instead it's bringing a New Game+ mode, the sixth episode of its free DLC The Lost Tales of Greece, a higher level cap, and some fiddly fixes. To access the New Game+ mode, you need to have completed the main story arc - and honestly, what sort of lunatic would you be to start a new game without finishing your first playthrough? Odyssey is the first Assassin's Creed game with two heroes and different endings depending on

You probably already know that the basic setup of Far Cry New Dawn is The Road Warrior with a side order of deep fried bull testicles. If you'd like a more detailed breakdown of what's in store, today's new 12-minute gameplay video, covering the full intro sequence, is here to help.

Sling TV beats Hulu, YouTube to largest live streaming TV provider title

This makes it the most subscribed to live TV streaming service in the US, ahead of its rival DirecTV Now. That 2.4 million number puts Sling TV ahead of YouTube TV, which had only 800,000 subscribers back in July 2018, and Hulu with Live TV, which only had around one million subscribers at last count. If that trend continues – or worsens – after the arrival of Apple’s live TV streaming service, it could put Dish and Sling TV in a bad spot this time next year. Sling TV saves you the dollar billsW
