Nintendo Switch Stock Could Be Low In 2021 Due To Semiconductor Shortage

The semiconductor shortage that is affecting everything from computers to car production is also hitting the video game industry, and according to Nintendo, that could lead to Switch console shortages later this year.

In an interview with Nikkei (via VGC), Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa said that while the company has the materials it needs for "immediate production of semiconductors" necessary for Nintendo Switch units, that could change later.

"However, in Japan and other countries, demand...

Wrestlemania 37 Was Delayed Due to Thunderstorm

Update: Wrestlemania had been delayed to inculcate weather. After WWE Chairman Vince McMahon came out to welcome back fans and was supposed to start the show after America The Beautiful, fans inside the Raymond James Stadium were asked to come back inside. This is the first time in Wrestlemania, and maybe WWE history, that there's been a rain delay for a live event. There was a Monday Night Raw that was canceled years back with a blizzard that rolled into Denver, but never with fans actively...

Mass Effect Legendary Edition Goes Gold Ahead Of May 14 Launch

Mass Effect Legendary Edition is set to release in just over a month, and the remastered trilogy's project director Mac Walters has announced that it has gone gold. That means there is very little chance it's going to get bumped from its May 14 release date.

Epic Games Is Losing An Absurd Amount Of Money On Exclusive Games

Epic Games seems to understand that, given Steam's massive user-base, the only way it can be a viable competitor is to have games that aren't available on Valve's service. Exclusivity deals with third-party companies cost money, and it looks like Epic Games is losing a huge amount of money to make those exclusives happen.

As spotted by PC Gamer, despite paying approximately $444 million for "minimum guarantees" on third-party games for the Epic Games Store in 2020, sales of all third-party...

Fortnite Adds New Shop Section For Previously Vaulted Items

Fortnite has introduced thousands of characters, Back Blings, Emotes, and other cosmetics over the years, so it's understandable that some items haven't resurfaced in some time, especially when Epic is so often partnering with licensed properties like Marvel, Star Wars, and The Walking Dead. A new Shop section is now available and features previously vaulted items exclusively.

Each long-absent item in this new Fortnite Shop section has been unavailable for at least a year, and some of the...

PSA: Not Using Outriders' Mods Makes The Game Much Harder

Outriders can be a tough game once you start to get into it. Despite access to a host of different ludicrous superpowers, you're still human at the end of the day, and if you get nailed with enough bullets or slashed by enough monster claws, you're going to die. You can mitigate some of that incoming damage with Outriders' cover shooter mechanics, but because of the way most character classes recover health, you need to be constantly slaying foes. If you're not using equipment mods to help...

Turns Out Diablo 2 Is Still Really Good (Resurrected Alpha Impressions)

Please don't be mad at me, I haven't played Diablo 2 since middle school. And at that time, my friends (who were also high-level StarCraft and Warcraft players) basically carried me through most of the experience and the Lord of Destruction expansion. However, Diablo 2 showed me the satisfaction you can get out of a good hack-and-slash RPG, tearing through mobs (often with friends), using different classes and builds, and being smart about how to handle the tougher encounters.
