Buy A Nintendo Switch And Get Free Eshop Credit In New Bundle

Outside of the holidays, it's rare to find deals on Nintendo Switch hardware, but Nintendo has announced a new bundle that serves as a good entry point if you're interested in picking the console up. The bundle goes on sale starting February 15 and includes a system with neon red and blue Joy-Cons, as well as $35 credit for its digital storefront, the Eshop.

The bundle will be available at retailers around the US and costs $300, the standard price of a Switch console. While the bonus credit can be put toward any Eshop purchase, the storefront is home to a preponderance of great--and fairly cheap--indie games, such as Golf Story, Celeste, and the recently released Advance Wars-like strategy game Wargroove.

The credit can also be used to purchase DLC, which many of Switch's must-have titles have received. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's expansion pass costs $20, as does Splatoon 2's single-player focused Octo Expansion. If you pick up Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, its fighters pass runs for $25 and will give you access to five of its planned DLC characters, including Persona 5's Joker.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice PC Specs Revealed

about X hours ago from

Activision has revealed the PC system requirements fo From Software's upcoming Souls-like game Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice via the title's Steam page. The minimum and recommended requirements aren't all that different from what you needed for Dark Souls III, so if you played From Software's 2016 Souls game on PC, you should be fine.

The minimum requirements for Sekiro are slightly higher than what they were for Dark Souls III though. For Sekiro, you need either an Intel Core i3-2100 or AMD FX-6300 processor that's paired with 4 GB of RAM and either a Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 or AMD Radeon HD 7950 GPU. You'll have to bump up your system's specs to run the game on its recommended settings, obviously, but the Steam page does not reveal the difference in targeted resolution and framerate between the two.

Below, we've outlined the full list of both the minimum and recommended PC system requirements.

Steam Awards 2018 Announced, But Most Winners Aren't From 2018

about X hours ago from

The Steam Awards have been announced, honoring games and developers as voted by the community. This year's awards spanned eight categories, from traditional ones like Game of the Year and VR Game of the Year to more unusual selections like Better With Friends.

Unlike many annual awards, though, these categories largely weren't restricted to games that released in calendar year 2018. Instead, ongoing games were eligible for accolades, and many of them received it. Only one of the winners was a game released last year: Assassin's Creed Odyssey for Best Alternate History.

Game of the Year was won by PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, the battle royale game that helped start the now popular trend. PUBG was first released into early access in Spring 2017, and then hit its full official release in December of the same year. It has remained popular, though, especially as evidenced by winning the Steam Awards.
