They're calling this estimate...conservative?
While Nintendo itself has yet to release any sales forecasts regarding the Switch, it’s time for the world’s array of analyst firms to start speculating about the console’s prospects.

I agree that the premiere went too far, but not because I'm "offended," but rather because the gore outweighed the loss of the characters themselves
Ever since the brutal “Negan beat-down” premiere, The Walking Dead has come under fire by some for finally crossing a line when it comes to violence. And now, it’s been revealed that the show has actually taken that criticism to heart.

Looking forward to this for sure
Overwatch continues to be the lynchpin of Blizzard’s line-up, and the company is showing no signs of slowing down in both its support of the game, and its monetization of its audience, now with a new event celebrating the Chinese New Year.

It's not what actually got added, but what got added behind the scenes
With each new Pokémon GO patch comes a fresh set of data to mine, and the folks over at Silph Road have once again unearthed some jewels in this new patch that seem to suggest Niantic is gearing up for a big Gen 2 release that might be very soon indeed.

GPS drift, friend of the player, enemy of Niantic
Pokémon GO players have been sitting around and waiting for any new information from Niantic about the future of the game after the end of this holiday’s pair of dual events. Today, Niantic released information about the first new patch coming to the game in a while, and…it’s not terribly good news.

When's the last time you heard anything about PSVR?
Despite debuting in October 2016, Sony's PlayStation VR, the first console-based VR headset, seems to have almost disappeared completely from conversation in the industry.

This is par for the course these days, but still a bit of a bummer
Destiny is now entering year three of its lifespan as a sequel looms on the horizon for (allegedly) this fall. But the fact remains that Bungie has revealed what’s going to be another content drought for the foreseeable future.

I am actually pretty impressed by this
Massive just hosted a livestream with Red Storm in order to lay out what exactly is coming in The Division’s third DLC, Last Stand. After a brief teaser that seemed to hint at it being some kind of PvP mode, that has been confirmed, though there’s quite a lot to digest here.

You're all geeky enough to get this reference, I hope
The more that's revealed about the Nintendo Switch as time goes on, the more it feels like the console is shaping up to be a significant challenge for Nintendo’s hardware aspirations, no matter how you frame its functionality.

Let's hope this is what's happening
After the failure of Suicide Squad, DC might be loosening the restrictions they’ve placed on DC TV in order for them to use some of their major characters once again.

This is Nintendo's moment to fix its YouTube policies
Nintendo has added a sharing button to the Switch that will allow players to capture video from their games. Such an addition makes for a great moment where Nintendo can fix its incredibly outdated YouTube policies.

$300 is only the beginning
The more we learn about the Switch, the more Nintendo seems to be stretching its price. $300 comes with the Nintendo Switch and…nothing else, and that’s a problem given some assumed functionality of the console.

Story
Introduction
I'm Editor-in-Chief of a film/tv/gaming site I founded called Unreality and I'm a video game-focused contributor over at Forbes. I think I'm a part of the first generation of journalists to skip print media entirely. I love all things media, and I'm honored that other people actually seem to want to hear my thoughts on issues in the industry. 
Bragging rights
I once wrote a post about Nicolas Cage's hair that was the 8th most popular article on the internet that day.
