The game will support native 4K at 60FPS on PC. You’ll probably need to own an Xbox One X to get performance like that out of the console version.

We are less than a week away from the release of Pokemon Sword and Shield on the Nintendo Switch and we decided the time was finally right to do a new how-to video about Pokémon.

The Poké Ball Plus released almost a year ago and is the exclusive controller option for Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee. However, most users may not be aware of all the functionality the controller actually has. Here’s a quick rundown of some features you can use right now.

Not enough for you? From what we’ve been told, the Poké Ball Plus will be compatible with Pokémon Sword and Shield when those games launch.

It has been no secret to most long term visitors to this site we are super fans of Bawls high-caffeinated soda. It has been a staple of LAN parties everywhere for nearly two decades. Earlier this year, the company announced a new flavor was being added to their soda lineup, Cherry Cola.

Bawls was nice enough to provide us a case of their soda for this review. What do you say we try it? Just be aware we are going to say Bawls a lot…

Stay tuned we might be doing more game streaming this week with our supply of Bawls at our side!

We were able to secure ourselves a regular copy of the retail edition of Death Stranding at a midnight release from our local GameStop. Let’s see what’s in the box, shall we?

Just want to give a heads up that there is a Day 1 patch for this game. Make sure to get it before you start playing. Save games prior to the patch are not compatible with the post patched game.

Death Stranding is out now on PS4. Its coming to PC in 2020.

Gamers have been waiting for Death Stranding for years and at midnight tonight, their wait will be over. To hold you guys over, here’s the game’s latest commercial. It was made by the studio responsible for the hit tv show Rick and Morty and it is just hilarious.

We will try to do a midnight unboxing of the game after we get our hands on it. If you liked the animation I’m happy to say Rick and Morty‘s new season should be starting Sunday.

Death Stranding releases at midnight for the PS4. Its coming to the PC in 2020.

Gears 5 Title Update 2 Released November 7, 2019

A major title update with lots of bug fixes has just been released for Gears 5. You can check the entire list of patches and fixes here.

This is a much needed update due to the fact game stability in multiplayer has been an issue ever since launch. It’s also one of the big reasons I haven’t finished playing the game, the game would frequently ignore my player progress, even in the single player campaign. Microsoft and the Coalition have promised this will be accompanied by a server-side patch which will take place over the next few hours. If you happened to lose progress in multiplayer, you may not see your progress restored until after the server patch.

You might want to free up some system space for this update. For example, if you are using an Xbox One X and had the previous title update, the new one may require a download of over two GB.

Gears 5 is out now on PC and Xbox One.
