In Case You Missed It – Gaming News From the Week of May 29 – June 4, 2017

Dungeons and Dragons / D&D Stream of Annihilation announcment

It’s summer! The sun is shining, my skin is burning, and now we have to catch up with the week’s news once again. That’s right! It’s time for In Case You Missed It!

In Case You Forgot About Nintendo’s New Online Service…

The Nintendo Switch’s online services aren’t available just yet, but let me remind you in case you forgot. Originally, Nintendo planned on allowing subscribers a brief trial period before requiring a subscription akin to that of Xbox One and PS4. Unlike those services, Nintendo would only be giving players a single game from their catalog to use for a single month.

Nintendo seems to have learned their lesson, as Kotaku explained that users will now have full access to a massive library of classic NES games. SNES games are not planned for launch (probably due to the rumored SNES Classic). Oh, and the service is only $20/year.

In Case You Were Planning Your Next Campaign Soon…

You might want to consider wrapping up your current one. The next Dungeons & Dragons storyline is called Tomb of Annihilation and involves dinosaurs, undead, and undead dinosaurs. This information and more were announced during the “Stream of Annihilation,” a 24-hour extravaganza that showcased the different shows that will be airing on the Twitch and YouTube channels this summer. Watch the recap here, or check out the Twitch channel here.

In Case You Were Hoping to Go on a Picnic…

Sorry to rain on your parade. Devolver Digital has canceled the Indie Picnic this year. According to their blog post, the issue was that they could not secure special permits to host the event publicly. While the usual industry and press folks can jump swing by their booth, fans will have to settle for their live stream.

 

In Case You Were Sick and Tired of Bad Games on Steam…

Now you’ll have to deal with bad games made by people with money. You know, the bad games. Not just the copy and pastes that flooded the market in the past couple of years. Valve stated that Steam Direct, Greenlight’s upcoming replacement, will require a $100 publishing fee per game. You can read the whole blog post here.


That’s all for this edition of In Case You Missed It! Be sure to swing by again next week, but let us know what we missed in the comments!
