I Think Nintendo Won E3

Well, they had me at this game... Am a HUGE fan of the Saturn (and Windows 95) version of the game. While most people are excited for the follow-up of Breath of the Wild, that is still a ways off. Panzer Dragoon has a Winter release date meaning between December and Spring!

But lets be honest, Nintendo did show off A LOT of great games. Watch a few below

Konami Announces A Mini Console

Well, seems like this year Konami has realized they can milk the retro market. But with this, they can have my money, as I am a HUGE fan.

Dead Or Alive 6 Delayed

Just as everyone is getting swept away with CES news, Koei Tecmo snuck in some news today as well. DOA6 has been pushed back to March 1st to "further polish" the game. Not sure how much 2 weeks will give them as they would need to start pressing discs soon. I guess we can expect a Day 1 patch for sure.

Improve Wired Headphone Audio From A Nintendo Switch?

Like most people this time of year, I've been traveling to visit family. Also like most, a set of headphones is a must for long plane rides. My current phone is the Razer Phone, which also means carrying Razer's USB-C dongle which contains a 24 bit THX certified DAC. Sure, that may not mean much since Razer owns THX, but keep reading.

As of firmware 5.0, the Nintendo Switch could pass audio via its USB-C port. Most people have used this for wireless USB headsets. Now what happens when you're aren't paying attention and just plug your headphones with dongle attached to the Switch's USB-C port?

Pure audio bliss, that's what. Deeper, more vibrant audio. I just tried with Ys VIII and the recently released R-type and wow. Switching between the Razer dongle and the Switch's headphone jack was night and day.

If you use a wired headset, even a cheap set, this will most definitely improve your audio quality.

If interested, the dongle can be found here for $19.99 plus shipping.

New Samurai Spirits/Samurai Shodown Game Announced!

Announced overnight, Samurai Shodown will return next year on the Playstation 4. Powered by the same engine that is powering almost every major fighter as of late, Unreal, the game is looking great. Personally, I feel that they should have gone with a style similar to Guilty Gear Xrd, but happy regardless. Seems like SNK is returning to what made them great, fighters. With KOF out for a bit now and last week's SNK heroines ~Tag Team Frenzy~, here's to hoping we get more.
