Brian is back! Pokémon Unite is The Pokémon Company’s foray into the MOBA genre with the entire Pokémon roster at their disposal. On paper, combining a very popular gaming genre with some of the most recognizable characters in the biz seems like a recipe for success… but maybe too much so.
As it turns out Pokémon Unite is riddled with questionable microtransactions and systems that are predatory when it comes to free-play games and even include elements of pay-to-win progression systems. Hold onto your wallets because we have all the details in today’s roundup.
In other news, Final Fantasy XIV Online is really blowing up causing all kinds of server-related issues, Nintendo officially said there is no new Switch planned at this time, and Skull & Bones finally hit alpha. The Nintendo gigaleak also continues to give as a new slew of information was just released about potential and upcoming Nintendo games for major franchises like Zelda, Metroid, and Donkey Kong.
This week’s 5-Second Review of Death’s Door gets a little too real for Brian Gaar and the Coming Soon section has some interesting finds with The Ascent and Elder Souls.
Check back in next week to get caught up with all the big gaming stories of the week right here on the Inside Gaming Weekend Roundup. Thanks for watching!
