It seems as though everyone’s favorite vertically scrolling shoot ’em up, Ikaruga, will indeed be making its way over to Switch after all – according to a post on Twitter today from developer Treasure. As you can clearly see in the tweet, the team appears to have Ikaruga already running on Switch. But as far as vertical mode goes, Treasure states that they’ll have to do some slight tweaking to make everything work smoothly before launch. Switchは縦画面で遊べるから斑鳩を移植して欲しいという要望を頂き、DAISOの108円のスタンドで縦に置いてみた。あと3mm幅を広くしてくださいよ。横置きは完璧なのに、縦置きは少し足りない。この写真は、色々反射で写り込んでいて面白い。りんこ姫の横で、何か光輝いてたり、後ろの黒い何かも怪しい。 pic.twitter.com/TMAcIOcMfP Continue reading…Powered by WPeMatico

If you set out to pay homage to both Shadow of the Colossus and Attack On Titan, but never figured out how to truly capture what made either of them special, Extinction would be the result. That’s not to say there isn’t a decent amount of straightforward, excitingly-animated hack-and-slash enjoyment to be had – I just wish it had borrowed more of the atmosphere, variety, and sense of discovery from its muses. The stars of the show are the Ravenii, towering ogres on the warpath to wipe out every last human for reasons that become clear across the roughly 12-hour…

After playing Epic’s so-hot-right-now survival game with Paul over the weekend, the popular streamer received multiple complaints from his audience. During the stream, Summit1g said he “was a little disappointed in the chat,” and that he thought “the 1g squad was a little bit different. I thought some people had a little bit thicker skin.” “I played like 5 end of the night squad games with Jake Paul and his friends last night,” he said on a now deleted Twitter post after the stream. “I had…
