Nintendo Switch Singapore Retail Price Revealed – Sends More eyes twitching

Thanks to video games, Malaysian and Singaporean gamers are in unison once again – this time via their displeasure at the ridiculously priced Nintendo Switch in their respective markets.

As we reported yesterday, Malaysian gamers were shocked to find out that the Nintendo Switch will retail an absurd MYR1,000 above its expected price, starting at MYR2,299. This however, isn’t the fault of the local resellers, as the price they had to put up relies heavily on the regional distributor. In this case, Maxsoft.Pte. Ltd.

The same case occur in Singapore, as Geekculture reported it earlier today. Based on the Facebook post of a popular online retailer Qisahn, the Nintendo Switch carries a suggested retail price of US$299 (SG$425) will start selling from SG$659 (US$462) in Singapore markets...

Mass Effect: Andromeda Details a Few New Squadmates

Mass Effect: Andromeda is less than two months away, and – following the release of the latest cinematic trailer – we’re beginning to see more information about the team you’ll be leading in the game.

In a new “Andromeda Initiative” video on the Mass Effect website, Cora Harper, second in command under original Pathfinder Alec Ryder, introduces us to some of the team. Harper herself is a biotic, and takes charge of the team’s ground missions. She has apparently served with Asari commandos, meaning we may see her as the bridge between the human team and their alien allies.

Her character assessment in the video says that “if warranted” she’ll succeed Alec Ryder as Pathfinder. Given we know that either his son or daughter actually take on that role, it’s a mystery what’ll happen to keep Cora ...

PRO TIP: In MEA, you can craft your own krogan-style hammer and name it GRABTHAR’S HAMMER.

Hideo Kojima Addresses His Time with Konami

Hideo Kojima commented on his inspirations, Kojima Productions, and his time with his former employer Konami. In a statement given to us during our visit to the opening of the new Kojima Productions studio space, the Metal Gear/PT/Death Stranding creator had this to say:

“The me that stands here now is the product of the past 53 years of my life. Everything I experienced over 53 years; movies I’ve seen, books I’ve read, music I’ve listened to, games I’ve played, people I’ve met and the 30 years spent in this industry, have formed who I am. Not one of these things has been without purpose, including my experience creating games at Konami. I’m embarking on a new challenge with a fresh slate, but I intend to keep pushing the creative envelope until the day I die...

Death Stranding: Guillermo del Toro on His Role in Hideo Kojima's Next Game

Don’t expect director Guillermo del Toro to have a big role in the production of Death Stranding. Though the game features a reunion between del Toro and friend/fellow P.T. director Hideo Kojima, it turns out that del Toro’s contribution is solely as an actor this time around.

That’s what we learned during a recent phone interview with del Toro, as he was clear that the game itself sprung solely from the mind of Kojima. “I’m involved as a character. Kojima-san called me and said, ‘I want you to be a character in the game,’ and I said, ‘Gladly.’ He’s discussed his ideas so I could understand the character, but other than that I’m not involved, creatively, at all.”

Del Toro continued, “This is entirely Kojima-san’s game. I think it’s gonna be a fantastic game, 100%...

Following his hosting stint at this year’s 68th Primetime Emmys, Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the 2017 Academy Awards.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kimmel’s selection will soon be announced by the show’s producers, Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd. Though, Kimmel already confirmed the news on Twitter.

For Kimmel, this will be the first time hosting the Oscars after headlining the Primetime Emmys twice, in 2016 and 2012.
