Skyrim for Switch gets Motion Control, Zelda Collaboration, and more!

Back in January, we learnt that Bethesda would be releasing The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim to the Nintendo Switch later this year. Though we have yet to learn when exactly the title will be released, Bethesda did reveal a new trailer in their conference earlier, which details some of the features of the Switch version.

The trailer shows how the game utilises the motion sensors of the JoyCons… test, Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch has motion controls! Tap an Amiibo from the Zelda series on a JoyCon, a special treasure chest will appear, which will contain a special Zelda themed items. Finally, we can see the main character running around in the Champion’s Tunic from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, likely obtained from one of the treasure chests spawned.

Check out the official summary after the break.

Nintendo Switch Up Close and Third Parties!

There’s a lot to get excited for today since Nintendo have revealed how they are switching up gameplay experiences once again with Nintendo Switch. I just got sent a couple images, one shows up the console and main controller up close, and the other shows just a sample of what third parties we can expect to see titles from on NX. These developers include Bethesda, Capcom, SEGA, Activision, DeNA, Ubisoft, and so much more!

The Big E3 Round Up [Strong Language]

It’s happened again, the big corporate circle jerk that is E3, and all consumers can do is hope a bit of errant spunk flies from the circle and pleases them with a bit of salty distraction from the inexorable journey to the grave.
Maybe it’s just that I’ve turned incredibly cynical over the years of exposure to the games industry’s shit but I find it very difficult to be in any way excited for E3 since almost everything shown is either years off, hyped to the balls and could never live up to it or will look considerably more shit that in the carefully choreographed “gameplay trailer”. And even as the first conference started I felt myself thinking “Oh why did I say I’d do this.” A feeling that is never a positive thing, nor one that abated throughout the whole ordeal.
Nevertheless, here I am on the other side of the conferences feeling a mix of relief and mild disappointment that I wasn’t proven wrong in my thoughts. So for what it’s worth, here is my round up of the E3 conferences and my thoughts on the shit that it’s spawned (that may have given the game away…)

The Big E3 Round-Up [Strong Language]

Well thank Christ it’s over. This shouldn’t have been my reaction to the end of the biggest gaming conference on the world, but it was… The bad and mediocre vastly outweighed the good, but what was good, was on the whole a very positive thing for the industry. So in case you missed it here is a round-up of the E3 conference.

EDITOR’S NOTE – Be warned, our new writer does not withhold any punches and can be very… uhh, vocal about it. If you are a sensitive fanboy and dislike the use of some explicit language, turn away now. If you feel you are strong enough, check out Snowy’s brilliant write-up after the break!
