As promised, Nintendo showcased a variety of new games on the way to Switch this year during its latest Indie Highlights video. In all, the company spotlighted nine new indie titles for the hybrid console, including a few surprise releases that are available to download right now.

The biggest surprise of the presentation was the announcement of SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, the newest game in Image & Form's genre-spanning series.

As part of Nintendo's "Nindies" showcase today, the company surprise-released a handful of games. Three of the games shown off during the presentation are available now through the Nintendo Eshop.

When Ski Lifts Go Wrong ($15) is a physics-based construction puzzle game that has you building--what else--ski lifts. Once they're constructed you can set them free to become used by the customers, to often hilariously disastrous results. Goat Simulator: The GOATY ($30) is a bundle that includes several Goat Simulator expansions. Finally, Unruly Heroes ($20) is an action platformer with four heroes that can be swapped in solo play or cooperatively.

The presentation had a few other surprises in store, including the announcement of SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, a card-based RPG set in a fantasy steampunk world. It also finally revealed a release date for Wargroove, which is set for just around the corner on February 1.

Netflix: What's Coming And Going In February 2019--TV, Movies, Originals, And More (US)

about X hours ago from

January is almost over and February will be here soon, and that means Netflix subscribers have a whole new slew of movies, TV, and originals to choose from. Sadly, it also means a bunch of stuff is leaving the service as well. Starting on February 1, subscribers will find plenty of new content to binge as Netflix starts dropping new stuff.

Starting on the first of the month, Netflix will release the first three American Pie movies. The early-00s series was the most successful comedic franchise during that time. In addition, Jaws, Jaws 2, Jaws 3, and Jaws: The Revenge will be available, so you can cuddle up to that special someone to watch a great white shark eat a bunch of beach-goers--and some people at an underwater aquarium.

As far as original programming goes, there are a couple of key dates to keep in mind. On Valentine's Day (February 14), comedic actor Ken Jeong drops his first comedy special, "You Complete Me, Ho." Jeong returns to stand-up in this special and looks back on how he was a doctor and transitioned into comedy. Additionally, on February 15, The Umbrella Academy comes to the service. Based on the comic book series of the same name, the show follows sibilings who are reunited after their father's death and learn they have extraordinary powers.

GameStop Deals Include Some Big Recent PS4 And Xbox One Games

about X hours ago from

GameStop has rolled out its latest set of weekly deals, and this time it's heavily marking down recent Ubisoft games. Far Cry 5, The Crew 2, Just Dance 2019, and Assassin's Creed Odyssey are all discounted. In fact, at $15, the price for Far Cry 5 is even lower than the recent Ubisoft franchise sale on Xbox One. The older but still going strong Rainbow Six Siege is also reduced, if you've been looking for an opportunity to hop into one of Ubisoft's most successful live games.

In non-Ubisoft deals, Hitman 2 and Battlefield 5 are both going for $30, and Just Cause 4 has already been reduced to $40. If you're more in a sporting mood you can pick up FIFA 19 and NHL 19 for $40, or NBA Live 19 and WWE 2K19 for $30.

Other deals include cheap prices on deluxe editions, so you can get a game plus its bonus content for a song. Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 Deluxe Edition is $30, and Valkyria Chronicles 4 Memoirs from Battle Edition for Nintendo Switch is $60, down from a whopping $100. Sometimes waiting pays off.

Punisher Showrunner Wants To Make A Blade TV Show

Although the second season of The Punisher only hit Netflix last week, the future of the show remains uncertain. Three of Netflix's other Marvel shows have been cancelled in last few months, and it remains a possibility that The Punisher might join them. However, showrunner Steve Lightfoot is already speaking about potential next projects, including revisiting another much-loved Marvel character.

In an interview with comicbook.com, Lightfoot revealed he is interested in making a show about Blade, the vampire hunter who previously featured in two movies starring Wesley Snipes. "I have no idea who owns it, but I've always loved the Blade character," he said. "I think that would be a great one to come back with. I thought those movies were great and I love that mythology. I'm a big horror fan, and as a fan of that it would be a fun one to play around with."

SteamWorld Quest Announced, Coming To Switch In 2019

During an indie showcase, Nintendo debuted a new game from Image & Form coming first to Nintendo Switch. SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech is a card-RPG hybrid set to hit this year.

The brief look at gameplay shows a traditional RPG battle interface, but with cards lining the bottom to serve as attacks. A treasure chest gives off loads of loot in the form of cards, and a closer look shows names like Intimidating Shout, Hot Iron, and Kilovolt. The announcement boasts a selection of more than 100 cards and the series' wacky humor.

The look of the game is obviously inspired by fantasy tropes, including armored knights, swords, and even a mechanized dragon. Image & Form noted that a fantasy RPG has been among its top requests from fans. The SteamWorld series has become known for applying its steampunk aesthetic to different settings and genres. So far it's explored an Old West motif in the two SteamWorld Dig games and SteamWorld Tower Defense, and a sci-fi space setting in SteamWorld Heist. This adds a third genre to the series' flexible rotation.
