The developers at Vicarious Visions love Crash, are super excited for everyone to play the N. Sane Trilogy.

But the problem is they can’t fly everyone out to Anaheim to play it in person, so instead they have released a peek that answers some of the most burning questions after the big reveal during the PlayStation Experience event yesterday.


And the biggest question everyone kept asking after watching trailer last night, “Is this a remaster or a remake?”, and now the developers have decided to answer that burning question, along with teasing us with more screenshots that we wish we could play it now, forcing me to go find my old original PSX and hope it still turns on and my original Crash Brandicoot disc boots up on it! :)

It really is the perfect match. Surgeon Simulator + VR!
Take your unlicensed surgeon practitioner skills to new levels, thanks to Bossa Studios, with Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality.



Well from looking at the screenshots and trailer attached below, this 'experience reality' is more of the 'joke/comedy' version of Surgeon Simulator, nothing really to do with actual life-saving operations, more fun then reality, even tho you are inside an ER.

Parents can now create Nintendo Accounts for children under the age of 13.

This new feature lets kids have fun earning and redeeming My Nintendo points on their own accounts, while allowing parents the ability to manage their children’s accounts.


Big 'N' is finally moving into the era of allowing 'child accounts' similar in style to how Xbox Live and PSN been doing it for years, with the age of Pokemon and Super Mario Maker so popular on the 3DS and the upcoming Nintendo Switch, they need to do alot to upgrade their 'online system' to manage the millions of young players that will be floating around online looking for gaming buddies!

According to Eurogamer, Nintento’s Pokemon Sun and Moon are the most successful game launch in the UK.

Never had any other game achieved this success; Nintendo really hit the jackpot when releasing these games.



It is said that sales were helped by last summer’s Pokemon Go hype, where at one point over 25 million people were playing the mobile game. Even though official figures have not yet been revealed for Pokemon Sun and Moon’s UK or US launch sales, in Japan alone the two games already sold nearly 2 million copies in its first three days.

Although the games initially came in on the 3rd and 4th position, combined they sold twice as much as the two previous games in the Pokemon series, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Chart-Track mentions that the combined sales will take over FIFA 17’s top position in the UK physical charts,...
