FINAL FANTASY XV: Windows Edition is out today. As long as you have either Origin, Steam, access to the Windows Store, or Windows 10 and have a powerful GPU, you should be able to play this game.
The game released first on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One at the end of 2016. It sold well, too with over 2 Million units. There is also a the Pocked Edition on smart phones. Now though, it is on PC.
The game is a hefty download. It is probably the largest game to fill up my storage the most. 75 GB is a lot. That’s not all. Access to 4K features will include an additional download. So, that should be well over 100 GB. But I thought it was worth it.
Nintendo has finally updated the MyNintendo Rewards. Starting today, you will be able to earn points for digital Nintendo Switch purchases exclusively on Nintendo eShop.
Purchasing digital games off of the eShop will give you an award that is based on five percent of the game’s price. For physical games, this will be one percent. They also noted that $59.99 equals 300 Gold Points. Then, you can download content on the Switch eShop. This will still be available for the 3DS and Wii U eShop until they shut down, as well.. (There is currently no known announcements from Nintendo on eShop shutdowns. This only applies to the Wii Shop Channel. MyNintendo is not available for Wii owners.)
Head on over to the Switch eShop for some deals starting today! This is the newest update added to MyNintendo. MyNintendo is now supported on four platforms, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, Switch, and Mobile. You can learn more at the MyNintendo Official Website.
One year later marks the first year anniversary of the Nintendo Switch, March 3, 2018. How did the Switch do in its first 12 months? What games will come out later this year? Let’s discuss.
Nintendo had a fantastic first year with the Switch. Almost every month, at least one first-party title was released. So many games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, ARMS, and Super Mario Odyssey all released in the same year and can now be played anywhere on the Nintendo Switch.
As for third-party games, many of them released, as well. Despite many of them being ports or remasters like LA Noire from Rock Star, Pay Day 2, DOOM and The Elder Scrolls V: Skryim both from Bethesda, Rayman Legends from Ubisoft and even Minecraft from Microsoft, they all launched on Switch in 2017. Take note that some of these remasters or ports launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well. Many of these also happened to release in the same few months. Newer games were released, too, of course. You can play Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces, Snake Pass, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle from Ubisoft (This was licensed by Nintendo.), FIFA 18 from EA, and NBA 2K18 from Take-Two Interactive, just to name a handful.
On January 31, 2018, it was reported by Nintendo as of December 31 of last year or New Year’s Eve, Switch has outsold the Wii U in just ten months and also sold an amazing amount of 14.86 million units. That is very impressive for Nintendo, especially for one of their consoles.

FFXV As Seen On Steam
Square Enix has released a demo to Final Fantasy XV on PC. The demo released one week before the game’s release, March 6. The demo can be downloaded for free on Steam, Origin, or the Windows Store. They also noted that 4K will be available as a separate download in the full game. And if this is even a question anymore, FFXV will support Windows 10.
Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition Demo includes the first chapter of the game. I think that is a good idea. This way, unlike some other games throw a random mission at you, it is less likely to spoil any plot twists down the line.
Once again, the full version of Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition will release on Tuesday, March 6 on Steam, Origin, and the Windows Store.
Metal Gear Survive is available now worldwide. It can be purchased for $39.99 USD on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam. It is the first game in the Metal Gear series since Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, as well as the first since the departure of Series Creator Hideo Kojima.

The video is a little choppy due to the file size being so large, I had to shrink it down. The video was originally 26 GB! Now it is about 2 GB.
Anyway, KONAMI released Metal Gear Survive’s second beta on Friday through Sunday. This time, it was on PC. I do miss Hideo Kojima but I also thought about giving KONAMI one shot since there has not been a console game since MGSV. Also note that many of the programmers worked on Phantom Pain. It isn’t their fault for what happened.
Now, the game plays okay but don’t expect too much. It is not bad, at least. But I would not call it a great game. Even for a beta. It was a big surprise, but good on KONAMI to make the beta free, instead of what other companies are doing and requiring you to pre-order to play, what is more-or-less a demo.
Metal Gear Survive will be out in the Americas on February 20 and 22 February in Europe at an MSRP of $39.99 USD / 39.95 EUR.
