Spyro Reignited Trilogy Gets Patch Update - Adds Subtitles + More!

Image
Spyro Reignited Trilogy released last year in November with positive review, but it wasn't perfect. Subtitles, among other things, was something fans felt was necessary to the game. Now, a few short months later, the game has received an update which fixes a lot of the issues it had on release.

Luckily the patch notes tell us everything new the 1.03 patch has added. Firstly, the game has added subtitles across all three games in unsupported cinematics; including character headers, line splits and colored text for easier reading. The option for subtitles can also be turned off for those who would rather play without. Secondly, an option to turn off motion blur has been added. This was a big issue for players when the game first released, causing some players to feel dizzy and cause headaches when moving the camera, though personally this didn't effect me during my play through. And lastly, as with any update, the patch fixes a number of bugs present on initial release. A full li…

Pokemon Sword and Shield Announced for Nintendo Switch, Coming Late 2019

Image
Announced in a special Pokemon Direct on this week, were the newest instalment to the main series Pokemon titles, Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

The games are the first Generation 8 titles, and will be set in the new Galar Region, which seems to be based off the UK. The direct revealed a short trailer, as well as the three new started Pokemon for the region; the grass-type, Grookey, the fire-type, Scorbunny, and the water-type, Sobble.



The trailer reveals a couple of things about the games, showing the return of Pokemon gyms, trainer customization, but also the removal of Pokemon in the overworld, and following Pokemon.


With these new games on the horizon, we expect this year to be filled with Pokemon news coming every few weeks. The Pokemon Company also teased there would be more to see this year in regards to Pokemon, so our fingers are crossed for a few more Pokemon surprises this year!


Pokemon Sword and Shield are slated to release simultaneously worldwide in late 2019.

10 Things We Want To See In Animal Crossing Switch

Image
With the year of Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch in full swing, we can only wait and see what's in store for us when we get our first glimpse of the game, whenever that may be. To help lesser the length of the wait, here are 10 things we want to see in Animal Crossing for the Nintendo Switch!
1. New Villagers, Trees, Flowers, Fruits, and BushesThis one seems inevitable, as we've seen it with happen with every future instalment of the series. With Pocket Camp, we've seen new Special Characters added - such as the OK Motors Crew - plus an assortment of new flower types. Now we have hybrids of hybrids, such as red-blue pansies, gothic roses, dahlias, sleeping beauty flowers, not to mention the carious Pocket Camp exclusive items within the mobile title. With these Pocket Camp exclusives, we expect at least some of them to be transferred to the Switch title, but as for the rest, let's hope there's some originals! In fact, Tumblr user noodleverse has already conceptu…

Spyro Reignited Trilogy PlayStation 4 - Review

Image
A Spyro remaster is something fans (myself included) have wanted for an eternity now. After a few rumblings earlier this year, the Spyro Reignited Trilogy was officially confirmed to be in the makings by Toys For Bob, and the flood gates opened. Fans were incredibly hyped for this game, yet still wanted it to stay true to the originals. But does the remaster live up to the hype? Let's find out!

To kick things off, you'll notice you'll need to download both games 2 and 3 if you buy a physical copy of the game. The "patch" for the download is around 15GB, so for those with slow internet connections, it may take a while for them to download the games and be able to play the sequels. This was something a lot of fans were mad about when news first broke, and admittedly it's something I'm still not that happy about, but at the end of the day I have access to all three games, it just required a little extra effort. However if you are someone who does not have the…

Animal Crossing: New Leaf - Deep Dive

Image
After extensively covering the previous three titles, it's finally time to cover the final title in the series, and the latest main series Animal Crossing title - Animal Crossing: New Leaf. New Leaf had a three year gap between it's announcement and release, so there's a lot to get into!

The game was first showcased at E3 in 2010 where a handful of screenshots were released. Most drastic, the trees appear to use different models than they do in the final version, and most flower species have altered models. It also gave our first look at the dialogue boxes, which underwent several changes during the development cycle. The models for the houses and Public Work's Projects also seem a little more cartoon-esque than they do in the final, and PWP's also have a small pavement patch around them. The Bench and Lamp Post are also positioned very close to one another, suggesting it was possible to have certain PWP's closer to each other at one point, with less restriction…

My Nintendo adds exclusive Animal Crossing 2019 Birthday Calendar

Image
As 2018 comes to an end, we're soon to welcome in 2019 which will be the year of the next main series Animal Crossing title. In preparation for the new year, Nintendo has added a lovely 2019 Animal Crossing calendar to My Nintendo for the low price of 80 Platinum Points.

The calendar is print-it-yourself and comes as a PDF download, and lists all the villagers birthdays from Welcome amiibo and Pocket Camp. The calendar can be redeemed over at My Nintendo, or you can just click the link here and get it right now. If you don't have enough points, you can check out the missions list to round up what you're missing, but for only 80 points it shouldn't be too hard to conjure up enough points.


And that wraps up the Animal Crossing news for 2018! As 2019 will be the year we receive our next main series Animal Crossing title, no doubt it will be a big year for Animal Crossing fans, and we don't expect it to be too long into the new year before we receive some new information…

Isabelle Turns Over A New Leaf and Joins the Roster in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Image
Just before the news of Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch came our way, Nintendo trolled us hard with the incredible reveal of Isabelle joining the fighters in the upcoming Switch title, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Smash and Animal Crossing communities had been hoping for Isabelle to join the fight since the games reveal, but with the reveal of Echo fighters, most seemed to agree Isabelle would work best as an Echo of Villager. However it seems that idea is out the door, and Isabelle is an entire new fighter with her own moveset. You can check out her reveal trailer below!



Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases in Australia on December 7th.

As the end of the month draws near, another inevitable update is sure to hit, giving us a look at what to expect over the next two weeks to the Pocket Camp app.

To kick things off we'll start off with the minor additions. Firstly, the inventory size has increased from 1,500 to 2,000, there's now a Helper Log at the Quarry listing those who have helped you, the on-screen display has been adjusted, and of course with any update, we'll see some minor bug fixes. Not onto bigger and better things!

After Julian received his own Fortune Cookie, it seemed they were riding the hype of some of the most popular villagers, so it's no surprise everyone's favorite elephant, Tia, will be receiving her very own Fortune Cookie in the near future. Tia's rosewater cookie will arrive September 3rd, and comes with an array of fancy and elegant themed items.



Brewster will also receive his own special event, Brewster's Sweet Harvest, which is happening right now! This is yet another…
