Disney and Nintendo partner for a Nintendo Switch TV show

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 15 mins ago

Disney has announced that they will be partnering-up with Nintendo to present a new TV show completely dedicated to a family playing the Nintendo Switch.

According to Business Insider, the upcoming show will be titled "Nintendo Switch Family Showdown" and will bring four families together to compete with eachother in a selection of Nintendo Switch games. The games that will be played are Super Mario Odyssey, Mario Tennis Aces and Just Dance 2018.

 

Nintendo Switch Family Showdown will be streamed on the Disney Channel, Disney XD and the DisneyNOW app. Personally, I don't think that this show will 'take-off' very well at all, instead of Disney and Nintendo making a show based around playing the Nintendo Switch they should make a show featuring the Nintendo universe and all of its amazing characters. I feel as this idea would apply to a much larger audience and would not only attract younger generations to buying/playing Nintendo Switch games, but it will also older generations that would love to see their favorite characters in a Disney level TV show.

One of the titles that have been drowned out throughout the bombardment of E3 announcements has got to be the next installment to the Unravel series. Welcoming Unravel Two, now take your friends on a string of adventures.

 

 

Unravel Two has already been launched and for players that choose to gift this adorable title to a friend will receive 1 month of EA Access completely free. Those that are not aware of what EA Access is, it is a monthly paid service that allows for players to play demos of some big EA titles, while also giving full access to over 100 games in what is called The Vault.

 

Unravel Two is quite self-explanatory, the first title was only a single-player game but now, as you could have guessed players will now have the choice to take a friend on their adventure. Judging from the trailer we can see quite a great range of unique puzzles that players will have to traverse, here is the official description for the title "Unravel Two builds off of the original game and centers on the bond between two Yarnys, which can be played as a single player or local co-op drop-in/drop-out experience. The two Yarnys will need to support one another as they work through tricky trials and traverse between beautiful natural landscapes and intricate urban environments, with the surroundings blossoming into new life as they embark on an adventure together."

WHO classifies 'gaming disorder' as mental health condition

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 2 hours, 52 mins ago

Most people know someone who loves games, and is even obsessed with games - and now the World Health Organization recognizes having a "gaming disorder" as a mental health condition.

WHO said that by classifying "gaming disorder" on its own, it will help gamers, families, governments, and health care workers to be more aware of gaming disorders. But having a gaming disorder, by the classification of WHO, is very rare - with less than 3% of gamers affected by their definition of a gaming disorder.

 

British Psychological Society spokeswoman Dr. Joan Harvey explained that the designation of a "gaming disorder" might panic parents in the wrong way. She explains: "People need to understand this doesn't mean every child who spends hours in their room playing games is an addict, otherwise medics are going to be flooded with requests for help".
