More EA Games for Switch if FIFA 18 Performs Well

As much as some people disagree with EA, they do have a bunch of awesome IPs, such as Sims, Titanfall, Star Wars Battlefront, Need for Speed, and Battlefield, they’re even releasing a brand new IP, Anthem, which looks absolutely incredible. You may notice however that there hasn’t been a lot of EA love for Nintendo in recent years, though this could all change with the Nintendo Switch.

Vice President, Patrick Söderlund, recently spoke with EDGE magazine about Nintendo’s hot new platform, and mentioned how he wants to help the Switch library to grow. Unfortunately, it seems EA plan to take their Switch releases hostage and also states that depending on how well FIFA 8 sells on the Switch will affect the games they release for the console.

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!
