Nintendo Switch Lite is built to take a beating but has two weaknesses

Nintendo Switch Lite is built to take a beating but has two weaknesses

A bit reluctant to move away from its prized cash cow, Nintendo didn't launch a new Switch 2 or even a Switch Pro as many had hoped. Instead, it released an only slightly improved regular Switch and a smaller, more portable Switch Lite. Being portable, the Switch Lite is designed to cater to gaming on the go and the accidents that may happen along the way. Fortunately, it seems that Nintendo built the gaming handheld like a tank except for two important details.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare update: No more loot boxes

Call of Duty Modern Warfare update: No more loot boxes

Activision just changed the game - or at least attempted to appear to be thinking about changing the game as such. They've suggested in an article today that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will not use loot boxes. "We are introducing a new Battle Pass system, not a loot box system," said an Activision representative. They've been a bit tricky about the way they've worded all of this - but there is some hope for a future without the addictive nonsense universe that lives in loot boxes in video games today.

Xbox One adds fine-grained control over offensive text messages

Xbox One adds fine-grained control over offensive text messages

While not generally true, some gamers do have a reputation for having a rather loose tongue, especially during competitive gameplay. That's probably fine if you're simply among peers of the same age range but can be a problem when a more heterogeneous mix is involved. It especially becomes dangerous when there are younger gamers in play, like when using a family-owned console. At long last, Microsoft is finally giving Xbox One owners the ability to censor some potentially harmful speech and even gives an almost ridiculous amount of control over it.
