Was this the big news? So no new horde?


Nice for people who only have a Switch, but I can't say I'm a big fan of cloud based games on the switch.


Should I feel bad for not knowing exactly what Nintendo Twitch is?




That's a great screenshot.

There's still another announcement coming today.

Well, definitely not what was I was expecting. But I'd never expected the Switch release of Isolation either and I absolutely loved that port. Glad the Alien fans who don't have the other devices can now play it. I am hoping that today's content announcement is meaty though.

Such a shame its a cloud only version. Kinda defeats the purpose of the switch really. Id rather take a graphical downgrade and be able to play anywhere offline than the cloud only option :(
