According to My Nintendo News, SEGA had confirmed that Sonic Forces was the 2017 game of Sonic the Hedgehog at SXSW earlier today. Some information was tweeted about by Twitter user @Babylonian. He basically states that more details will come tomorrow. So stay tuned for more gameplay, new levels, new characters, and more.

Nintendo eShop Update For March 14

Once a week, Nintendo adds new games to their eShop on their devices. eShop is available on Wii U, (though outdated) 3DS, and Switch. This can range from Virtual Console to new games and sometimes even video services like Netflix. 

This week, it looks like the only game added was Splatoon 2 Global Testfire. The open-beta can be downloaded today for free. Splatoon 2 releases exclusively for Switch this summer. 

Microsoft Regional Headquarters

After reading the article from FOX 2 again, I have determined that Microsoft is not closing any corporate offices in Redmond, Washington. Microsoft Regional Headquarters is currently located in Creve Coeur, which is located in a part of St. Louis. Cortex University is also located in St. Louis. This will serve as Microsoft’s regional headquarters. Microsoft’s American headquarters will remain in Redmond, Washington. 

Next Major Steam Sale

Sales are a great way to buy games at a good discount. According to Expert Reviews, it looks like Valve will start their summer sale on June 23. It would be cool to see SEGA also put some Sonic The Hedgehog titles for discount, especially since that day marks the blue blur’s birthday. 

Another source that supports this article is website When Is The Next Game Sale and they also believe Valve will be starting their sale on June 23. The website has been very trustworthy in the past. Summer and even winter seem to be the best sales on Steam of the year. 
I am both excited and disappointed at the same time. I had hoped that a spring sale would occur for Steam. Maybe I have been playing way too much of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. I do have over forty hours of gameplay after all. I do; however, look forward to the summer sale.
