The Best Games of E3 2017

The Best Games of E3 2017

E3 2017 has come and gone and with it an abundance of announcements. In this video Will goes over some of his favorite announcements from the show. While we mostly knew what to expect, there did wind up being a few surprises here and there. Shadow of the Colossus remake and Beyond Good and Evil 2 caught most people by surprise. Als Mario and Rabbids? Who figured that would actually be awesome? But everything else was pretty much expected. God of War, Crackdown 3, Days Gone, Horizon DLC, Call of…

Battleborn Multiplayer Is Free To Play

Battleborn Multiplayer Is Free To Play

It took a little longer than expected, but semi-popular hero shooter & MOBA Battleborn has officially released its multiplayer mode free to the public. Battleborn originally released in May of 2016, the same month and year as popular hero shooter Overwatch, which in direct comparison already has tens of millions of players compared to Battleborn’s player base which is somewhere in the low thousands. Will you give Battleborn a chance?

Zelda Easter Egg Within Steam Game

Zelda Easter Egg Within Steam Game

Be sure to check out Part 1. Watch me play a game that has stirred debate in a niche community. The game is called “The Plan,” and is available right now VIA the Steam Client on Windows PCs. If you’re not careful, leaves can bring you down, and if you’re not persistent, wind will blow you in another direction. I didn’t want to add commentary to the game itself, because it speaks volumes. I’d love to read your theories below, even if you thought the game was offensively gross. FEATURED…

Play This Short Emotional Game

Watch me play a short game that has stirred debate in a niche community. The game is called “The Plan,” and is available right now VIA the Steam Client on Windows PCs. I’ll try to upload a follow up video with a neat Legend of Zelda Easter egg found in “The Plan,” in the next 24 hours. If you’re not careful, leaves can bring you down, and if you’re not persistent, wind will blow you in another direction. I didn’t want to add commentary to the game itself, because it…

The Absolute Best Steam Controller Unboxing

The Absolute Best Steam Controller Unboxing

We here at Nerdopotamus love a good old fashioned hearty laugh. We loved the Steam Controller and we also love geek culture that has in recent time gone from niche or weird to cool and mainstream. We grew up in the era of Family Guy shock value jokes and still quote Seinfeld, the show about nothing. Our collected sense of humor stems from the most outrageous animations inspired by the zaniest drug induced illustrators (thanks Ren and Stimpy.) Nerdopotamus, our generation, and you guys right below us (we’re looking at…

Nerdo News – Episode 4 – Gamestop, Pokémon’s Anniversary, and Amber Rose! [02/01/2016]

Steam Controller Modding Begins

Steam Controller Modding Begins

Valve’s Steam Controller has been all the rage in the PC gaming world. When it was announced, it caught the internet by storm. It took several prototypes for the device to find itself, but when it did, it looked like something from the near future. Shifting to the present, the controller is now in our hands and plays as expected. The final design wasn’t anything too out of the ordinary, but it did show an obvious leap in gamepad design while catering to those who enjoy a traditional controller experience…

Kojima’s New Studio & New Success

Kojima’s New Studio & New Success

Every once and a while our very own Walter Winchester spews an opinion that is wildly unpopular. The few times he’s contributed people have gotten irked. I can’t blame them. Just a few hours ago Mr. Kojima and Sony mentioned a timed exclusive partnership with Kojima’s new studio. That’s wonderful news. While Walter may disagree and thinks it’s detrimental to the industry we cherish, I offer a different point of view. Here is the video that started it all. Walter makes a valid argument. To paraphrase, he doesn’t like that…

Player Customized Fallout 4 Controller

Player Customized Fallout 4 Controller

I’m going to admit, I hesitated sharing this. It might just be another divisive post where people take a crap all over this poor person who thought this design was a great idea. Don’t get me all wrong! I think it’s a totally unique controller, even if it wasn’t an actual overhaul, but I see some immediate flaws in it that people might tear apart. I’m applauding redditor ILikeWhereThisIsGoin for sharing these pictures however. To me this is what passionate gaming is all about. It’s not my favorite design in the world, but…

Fallout 4 Launch Trailer Releases – Adults Only

Fallout 4 Launch Trailer Releases – Adults Only

The official Fallout 4 launch trailer released today on behalf of Bethesda Softworks on YouTube. The video in its current state isn’t accessible by everyone without a YouTube account though, in a strange move made by the powers at be. We hope that the trailer lifts its security blanket so that everyone can enjoy it sooner than later. In the Film and TV world, the trailer might be considered “Red Band,” and would be titled that way. Trailer below. EDIT: By clicking the trailer below, viewers may  find they are…

Nintendo Goes Mobile, Theater and Theme Park

Nintendo Goes Mobile, Theater and Theme Park

Nintendo announced a list of new ways to market themselves in the near future. Among the list of goals, applications for mobile and PC are causing the biggest noise. One of the first announcements isn’t much of a new practice, even for Nintendo. Players can purchase Nintendo software through a variety of platforms including mobile and PC. There’s a new “points system” replacing the 2015 “end-of-life’d” model. The refreshed system rewards consumers with points for buying and playing software which are later spent on goodies. Points may also be earned through using Nintendo software on non-Nintendo…

Steam Greenlight Game Could Cause Bankruptcy

Steam Greenlight Game Could Cause Bankruptcy

There are some people who enjoy simple entertainment containing sheer minimalism. Some of those people share interest in aeronautics. If you find yourself in both camps, then you’ll find this Steam Greenlight game fascinating. Andrew Garrison and a tiny team put their passions to the test developing a plane simulator appropriately titled Simple Planes. Forget AAA graphics or speaker melting audio effects. All someone really needs is a decent mobile device or a capable personal computer to run Andrew’s game. Simple Planes is designed with strong focus on start and play. Andrew and his dedicated…
