Destiny 2 Coming to PC!

Great news from bungie, their sequel to Destiny will be coming to a PC near you for the first time! I do hope that it is not an afterthought like Halo’s super late PC release was. If only they hadn’t canned the PC version in 2000 right after it was announced — Halo could have been better than it turned out if you can imagine it. The port of Halo flopped compared to the console version due to it being a second thought. Looking forward to a true PC release for Destiny 2!

Yooka-Laylee Coming April 11th to Nintendo Switch

The game will be released on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac or Linux. The Wii U version has been cancelled since the console has reached it’s end of life and is no longer produced. This is great news for those of us who plan to purchase a Nintendo Switch because we will be able to play Yooka-Laylee on the go! Start saving about ~$4 a day starting today and you should have enough to get the Switch at launch.

Check out the new Cashino Trailer!

Battlefield 1 Out Now

I had a lot of fun playing the beta. I’m running an AMD RX 480 and the game ran perfectly smooth on my machine. I have not purchased the game yet as I am waiting for more concrete reviews and I’d like to watch some more gameplay videos of the other multiplayer maps before diving in. What are your favorite maps in the full game now that it’s out?
