Twitch Prime members can now get up to a full year of Nintendo Switch Online for free

TwitterFacebook

Twitch is at the epicenter of broadcasting and watching video games. The service is home to monumental success stories within its catalog of streamers — Ninja, the most followed streamer on Twitch, immediately comes to mind, as well as gamer and YouTube personality Pokimane, and even that one guy who fell asleep during his livestream for a couple of hours. With over 15 million daily active users, Twitch has cemented itself as a pivotal component of the gaming industry, and as a global phenomenon. 

When Amazon acquired Twitch for nearly $1 billion back in 2014, it introduced Twitch Prime soon after — a service that would be available to all Amazon Prime members. As a part of the deal, Twitch Prime members would have access to exclusive game loot each month, a free channel subscription every 30 days, and all the additional benefits of Amazon Prime, among other things.  Read more…

Best gifts for gamers in the UK: What to get for the gamer in your life in 2019

TwitterFacebook

Shopping for a gamer sounds like it should be easy, but getting them the right gift can be a bit more complicated than you think. The good news: there’s so much to choose from. The bad news: there’s so much to choose from.

It’s even worse when you consider all the different kinds of gamers out there. From those who pledge allegiance to the PC master race to Nintendo purists and everything in between, it isn’t easy finding just the right gift to add to their setup. But if you nail it, you won’t find anyone more grateful than a gamer.

When shopping for a gamer, first determine your desired price point. For most, you’ll be able to grab a couple games under £100 and call it a day. Accessories like controllers and charging docks are another great mid-range price point. The next step up will be things like gaming consoles or a gaming laptop, which will run into the hundreds. If you’re looking to go all out and treat the gamer in your life to an epic gift, a brand new PC rig and setup could clock in at around £3,000.  Read more…

Nintendo reportedly has high-end and low-end Switch consoles in the works

TwitterFacebook

Nintendo released the Switch just over two years ago, in March 2017, and it’s not going anywhere. But it may soon have some company.

There are reportedly two separate Switch hardware revisions in the works, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal. They could be released as early as summer 2019, presumably following an announcement at the annual E3 trade show, which happens in June.

While this info definitely lives in “rumor” territory, there are reasons to believe it. For one, the WSJ is an established media outlet and a trusted source of news — including scoops like this one. The report also cites multiple sources — “parts suppliers and software developers for Nintendo who have access to a prototype of the machine” — so it’s not just one, lone voice doing the anonymous talking.

Get a better grip with a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller — now on sale at Amazon

TwitterFacebook

We can all agree that the Nintendo Switch is awesome — there’s just one issue with it, though: The system’s included JoyCons can get extremely uncomfortable. If your hands are on the larger side, the JoyCons can feel small and almost impossible to use (especially when playing games that require speed and accuracy). Well, Nintendo heard the complaints, and developed the Switch Pro Controller in response.  

You can grab one of these Nintendo Switch Pro Controllers for $13 off on Amazon right now — check it out and increase your one-on-one time with your Nintendo Switch. 

By significantly cutting down on discomfort, the Nintendo Pro Controller is able to improve your overall stamina and gameplay performance — say goodbye to those hand cramps. The controller doesn’t sacrifice the best features of its predecessor, though, so don’t worry about an unfair tradeoff. HD Rumble, motion controls, and built-in amiibo support are still here, and it’s all completely wireless (charged via USB-C cable — which is included in the package). The Pro Controller is supported in both docked and undocked mode, so you can seamlessly switch between options while you’re going through your next replay of Read more…
