Axis & Allies Invades Steam Early Access

Axis & Allies Invades Steam Early Access

Developer Beamdog announced an online adaptation of Axis & Allies, the long-running World War II-themed board game, aptly titled, Axis & Allies Online. For anyone unfamiliar, Axis & Allies tasks players with maneuvering and battling for control over the board as either, as you might expect, the Axis or Allied powers.

This is not the first time that Axis & Allies has been translated to a video game. It was brought to PC in 2004, and while that had an online component to it, it was primarily a single-player affair. Axis & Allies Online looks to adapt the 1942 Second Edition of the board game with up to five players taking turns. It will also allow for asynchronous play if you need to take a break.

The nature of the board game seems a smart fit for this style of play. This seems especially well-suited for anyone who likes to play board games, but where the hard part is actually wrangling a group of people together to play. This will serve that audience quite well assuming the game manages to maintain the specific flavor of the board game. It’s currently available in Steam Early Access on Windows, Mac, and Linux for $19.99. Take a look at the – very brief – teaser below.

Warning: The video contains spoilers for Resident Evil 2, so if you haven't played it yet and plan to, you might want to look away.

Resident Evil 2 has plenty of secrets to uncover across all of its playthroughs, but some of them require a bit of a defter touch to find.

The latest video from Youtuber Shesez catalogs a few of the interesting things you can find in the remake if you're willing to modify the game with a custom, boundary-breaking camera. For one, there's a slightly altered version of the nursery area that isn't fully textured and moves some furniture around.

PSA: Apex Legends Experiencing Server Issues On All Platforms

Apex Legends is currently experiencing server issues on all platforms, Respawn has confirmed.

The issues seem to have started a little over an hour ago. Respawn is aware of them and is currently working on a solution.

Currently, some users (though not all) are experiencing login issues, server disconnects, and other technical hiccups. As of this writing, I've personally experienced an issue where logging into the PC version of the game takes much longer than usual. If you are experiencing these issues, be aware that Respawn is working on it.

Our own Leo Vader experienced an issue where logging took longer than usual, but the first few minutes of a match seem to play out in slow-motion.

Nintendo President Cut Switch Sales Estimate Due To 'Insufficient' Efforts To Convey Console's Appeal

Nintendo President Cut Switch Sales Estimate Due To 'Insufficient' Efforts To Convey Console's Appeal

Late last month, while he was confirming that the company had no current plans to develop a new kind of Switch or cut the console's price, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa was adamant the company could sell 20 million Switches by the end of this financial year (which ends March 31). He's since cut his estimate down to 17 million, citing Nintendo's "insufficient" efforts to properly convey the appeal of its latest console.

The news comes from a recent finance-oriented Q&A briefing from the company. Furukawa commented on the reason he decided to reduce the estimate. "As we look back so far (for this fiscal year), we now evaluate that our efforts to fully convey the appeal of Nintendo Switch hardware and software to the number of new consumers we originally hoped to reach were insufficient," he said. Nintendo expected that putting out a few games over the holiday season (like Super Mario Party, Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) would help bolster console sales, but that ended up not being enough. 

"We will talk about the next fiscal year in more detail at a later time, but basically we want to further increase both our hardware and software unit sales more than this fiscal year," Furukawa said.
