The first Fire Emblem game is finally coming to the US

In Japan, the history of the Fire Emblem series stretches all the way back to 1990 in the waning days of the original Famicom, but here in the US, interest in the series didn't really pick up until more than a decade later (thanks in large part to Super Smash Bros.

PS5 media streaming – Every app on launch day

In the age of internet-connected gaming, consoles have essentially become multimedia boxes instead of dedicated game consoles. While launch games are obviously among the most important aspects of a new console launch, it's also important to know which media apps that console will support on day one.

Minecraft Java Edition will require Microsoft accounts next year

Minecraft has definitely outgrown its humble roots, in no small part thanks to Microsoft's push to other platforms and use cases.

The latter, however, will soon change forever as Microsoft will soon be requiring Microsoft account and only Microsoft accounts to be able to log into any incarnation of Minecraft, including the venerable Java Edition.

The game was first released in early access in 2015 and has been continually updated with DLC in the time since then, and last year, developer Red Hook Studios announced that it's working on a sequel. That announcement happened in February 2019 - which seems like a lifetime ago given everything that's happened in 2020 - and ever since then, Red Hook has been silent about what's going on with Darkest Dungeon 2.

Xbox Series X better than PS5 pre-launch for one key reason

Xbox Series X better than PS5 pre-launch for one key reason

The Xbox Series X has a significant advantage over the Sony PlayStation 5 before launch. Not because the devices aren't capable of the same graphics power, or the Xbox is designed to fit under your television's weird table any better. But because the Xbox Series X rolls with a list of games that'll run with an image refresh rate of 120FPS - a list that's larger than that of the PS5.
