Nintendo Switch Announces 20 New Indie Games

Nintendo Switch Announces 20 New Indie Games
Nintendo has just revealed that they are going to be releasing 20 brand new indie games for the Switch console, which is great news for the people who are lucky enough to own one. The Switch made its debut in March of this year and is still a hot ticket item, meaning they are still very hard to obtain. There are even websites dedicated to checking store and online availability to alert Nintendo fans when the Switch console becomes available in their area. The consoles are obviously available on eBay and Craigslist for ridiculous prices while even big-name stores like Gamestop are selling what they call "bundles," which inflate the price to match the pricing of the third-party market.

In addition to being nearly impossible to find, Nintendo has also received criticism for a lack of games for the Switch, a common complaint whenever a new console is released by the video game innovators.

The Steven Seagal films of 2016

Matt Edwards Feb 24, 2017

We check out every Steven Seagal film released last year. There were quite a few of them...

2016 was an eventful year for Steven Seagal. The action movie star really took to Twitter, got political, wore some lovely coats and was granted Russian citizenship. But we aren’t here to dissect Steven Seagal’s off-screen life because, well, fuck. What we can do is try to make some sense of his cinematic output. This article will tell you a bit about the Seagal films released in 2016 (it’s full on with spoilers) to let you know how he got on.

With films getting different releases in different territories, I’ve covered every Seagal film with a home video release in 2016 that I might reasonably be expected to have access to. That’s five in total. In the UK, we had a bumper Seagal summer,

Elektra joins the fight Marvel Heroes 2016, trailer and screenshots revealed

Fresh from her appearance in Daredevil season 2, Elektra has now joined the roster of Marvel Heroes 2016, with the assassin becoming the game’s 57th playable character; check out a trailer and batch of screenshots featuring the assassin in action here…

“We opted for a more target-selection mechanic to represent Elektra’s assassination skills rather than basing her strictly around stealth, to differentiate her from other assassins in the game,” says Michael May, Senior Game Designer at Gazillion. “She does have stealth mechanics, but her gameplay is mostly driven around finding high-value targets, marking them, then taking them out.”

Voiced by Kat Cressida, Elektra dons her classic red costume, and an alternate choice is available inspired by her appearance in Marvel’s Daredevil Season 2. Elektra attacks with her sai, a rope dart, shurikens and other powerful abilities, such as Marked for Death, which debuffs powerful enemies while buffing herself.

Exclusive: Steven Seagal has a kickass goatee in this clip from Absolution

  • JoBlo
I have fond memories of Steven Seagal kicking ass in movies like Hard To Kill, Marked For Death, and Under Siege. Hell, Seagal's brief scenes in Executive Decision were pretty awesome too. In recent years, the man has done everything from direct to video action flicks to reality television. Even at the age of 63, the man is still churning out movies on a regular basis. His latest, Absolution, opens next month and we have an exclusive first clip from the movie. When a contract killer (Steven...

Watch: Trailer For New Steven Seagal Film ‘The Mercenary: Absolution’

Steven Seagal is an action movie legend. He burst onto the scene in 1988 with Above The Law. Since then he’s unleashed a steady slew of martial art heavy movies including Under Siege, Marked For Death and Machete. His latest film The Mercenary: Absolution doesn’t deviate from the winning Seagal formula. Seagal plays a mercenary who is seeking that one good deed that will grant him absolution for all his past sins. Could saving a young and frightened woman from Vinnie Jones’ big bad mob boss be just the ticket he’s looking for? Watch the trailer now for all the juicy details:

If you like what you see then make sure to keep 18th May free as The Mercenary: Absolution is released digitally in the UK by Content Media that very day.

Fourth Update For Titanfall Is Imminent, Adds Featured Game Mode Option

Respawn’s hyper-kinetic first-person shooter, Titanfall, is set to receive its fourth content update in the coming weeks, the studio has announced.

The rather extensive update is poised to introduce a series of new in-game features, including an all-new multiplayer option entitled ‘Featured Game Mode,’ which will allow Respawn to draft in novel game modes on a regular basis.

First up on this round of rotation is the Marked For Death mode, a style of play that labels one user as the Mvp and forces the remainder of the group to protect them at all costs. And though it isn’t clear how long Marked for Death will remain on Respawn’s playlist, the studio hinted that it will be replaced by Wingman Last Titan Standing thereafter.

Elsewhere in the update, players can expect 14 Titan Burn Cards replete with stat-boosting abilities along with Titan Insignias and further enhancements to Titanfall’s overall matchmaking.

The Frightening Truth About Steven Seagal's Career

Steven Seagal has made only one horror movie to date, and that was 2009's Against the Dark, in which he had a cameo that found him beating off vampires. Yet, here at Dread Central we've been known to cover the world of the bizarre and the paranormal. You're about to learn something about Seagal that is beyond bizarre...

Did you ever notice the strangest thing about Seagal movie titles is that they tell a story in order of their release? No? Check IMDb if you don't believe. Sit back, dear reader, and allow me to take you on a strange trip filled with action, madmen, and revenge.

Steven Seagal was Above The Law, but he was too Hard To Kill so now he's been Marked For Death by Jamaicans who are Out For Justice. Can he live while Under Siege and On Deadly Ground? Could you survive while Under Siege

Steven Seagal Won't Do an 'Expendables' Movie and Has Some Thoughts on Liam Neeson

I used to love watching Steven Seagal movies. Movies such as Under Siege, Hard to Kill, Marked for Death, Above the Law and Executive Decision. But we're talking a long time ago now and I think the last time I went to go see a Seagal movie in the theater was 1994's On Deadly Ground. The guy has now become something more of a curiosity than anything else, though he doesn't seem to be done with movies just yet, but that doesn't mean you should ever expect to see him in one of the Expendables movies. In an interview with The Big Issue he was asked why he hasn't starred in one of the action star team-ups just yet and he didn't hold back: "I just didn't like some of the people involved... Life is too short to work with funny people... There's good and bad people everywhere and a

View from the Bottom Shelf – Six Unheralded Straight to Video Martial Arts Masterpieces

Reading Chris Holt’s recent excellent feature on the death of the local video store, (as well as this week’s release of Gareth EvansThe Raid 2) I got to thinking about my own experiences of traipsing along to my local video store in search of something obscure but exciting. During my mid to late teens it was all about straight to video martial arts films – my Dad had introduced me to Bruce Lee by way of The Big Boss and I had worked my way through a whole load of Jackie Chan, Seagal and Jcvd, before resorting to just picking up a video that looked like it contained a lot of fighting and seeing what it offered.

Needless to say, a lot of what I stumbled on was deeply, abidingly terrible. Lone Wolf McQuaid was pretty good, but Code of Silence was abysmal. Delta Force II and III were both excellent fun,

Steven Seagal May Run for Governor of Arizona

Move over, Governator, here comes the … Aikidonator? Hey, if Arnold Schwarzenegger can get himself elected governor of California, why can’t Steven Seagal? The action movie star and Aikido master recently told a news outlet that he is, indeed, mulling over a run for the Governor’s seat of the great and very arid state of Arizona. The star of such badass flicks as “Marked for Death,” “Under Siege,” and “Under Siege 2: Dark Territory” recently told news station Knxv-tv about his possible plans: Joe Arpaio and I were talking about me running for governor in Arizona which was kind of a joke… But I suppose I would remotely consider it…but probably I would have a lot of other responsibilities that may be more important to address. Seagal goes on to discuss various political hot button topics, quotes Reagan, and takes a little jab or two at Obama. You
