    One of the Switch's most popular titles - and one of the most popular entries in Nintendo's 32-year-old series - is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game is particularly noteworthy thanks to the way in which it breaks away from the norm of the series, ditching features that have been present from the very start, but it could have even further removed from the classic formula, as we're about to find out.

    What will be left of the people who make our games?

    Buried deep in Harold Goldberg’s wide-ranging feature for Vulture about the making of Red Dead Redemption 2 is a reminder of why one of Rockstar’s founders, Dan Houser, rarely gives interviews: his stunning admission that “we were working 100-hour weeks” at multiple points in 2018. In a report peppered with numerical superlatives (1,200 actors; 300,000 animations; 500,000 lines of dialogue; 2,000 pages of script; a budget in the millions), it’s that hundred-hour statistic that shocks the senses the hardest...

    Here are all the times companies have tried to make 'Netflix for gaming'

    Google announced Project Stream earlier this month, a "technical test" for a new service that will let players stream games. The idea is simple: instead of owning games or machines that run them, we'll pay a subscription service that does the heavy pixel-crunching remotely and streams great-looking graphics to us with minimal latency. The idea is often called "Netflix for gaming," and would theoretically allow us to play the latest games at the highest graphical settings without having to own a high-end PC.

    In early June, some Xbox owners fired up their consoles and were greeted with an ad supporting the election campaign of conservative Canadian politician Doug Ford. Ford, who was the Progressive Conservative Party candidate and has been compared to Donald Trump, rode a wave of reactionary populism and won his bid to become premier of Ontario that same month. According to a Microsoft spokesperson, “The ad was limited in scope, region and timing, running for a few days last June. We regularly seek input from the community and decided to remove the ad.”

    Super Mario Party brings the franchise back to greatness

    Mario Party is, at this point, a 20-year-old Nintendo franchise that feels like a constant staple of every system. Along with console staples like Mario Kart and Mario’s various sports outings, a Mario Party for Nintendo Switch felt inevitable. The game’s contents feel inevitable, too — there are have been 10 numbered entries on consoles before it, after all. You play on a digital board game with your friends as Mario universe avatars, and you all end up possibly disliking each other at the end.

    Not every game needs to sell 500k

    Since Devolver Digital began in 2009, the publisher hasn't been shy about taking risks on indies. By extension, neither has co-founder Nigel Lowrie. Though Devolver started out essentially as the new publisher for Serious Sam after 2K began to focus on other titles, it didn't stay that way for long. After publishing successful HD versions of Croteam's over-the-top shooter series, it tested the waters of indie publishing further by pairing the successful Serious Sam IP with other developers, such as Vlambeer. That connection with Vlambeer was what led Devolver to Dennaton Games and Hotline Miami.
