Joy-con drift troubles seem unchanged with Switch OLED Model

Today: Takuya Kimura’s talent agency is kicking up trouble for Judgement on PC — Venture into the lair of the Endermen in Echoing Void — Sealed copy of Super Mario 64 fetches record price at auction.

No Joy-Con drift fix in sight with Switch OLED model

Joy-Con drift causes phantom controller movement

Nintendo still does not appear to have addressed the design flaws leading to so-called Joy-Con drift, and that means controllers sold alongside the new Switch OLED model can still exhibit the issue.

The new Switch OLED model includes a new, bigger screen that keeps the resolution at 1280×720 but offers improved color reproduction, while the new dock includes an ethernet port. Switch OLED will launch in October at $349.99/£309.99.

Same old: “Configuration and functionality did not change with Nintendo Switch (OLED model),” according to Nintendo, who only vaguely acknowledged that they are “aware of reports” of Joy-Con drift.

Autumn: The new Switch OLED model hits shelves on October 8th and various retailers have already opened pre-orders. Nintendo is currently involved in three class-action lawsuits concerning Joy-Con drift, which probably explains the company's reluctance to discuss the issue in public.

If you've experienced joy-con drifting issues, you can report it on Nintendo's support site.

Lost Judgement might not make it to PC

Lost Judgement could end before it really begins

Are you a PC gamer? Do you enjoy Sega's fine, oddball crime fiction series Yakuza and its spin-offs? Then woe is you, because Sega has stated that there are no plans to bring Lost Judgement to PC at this time.

Turns out the agreement between Sega and leading man Takuya Kimura's talent agency Johnny's does not cover the PC platform.

No agreement: Kimura is a big name in Japan, and his talent agency is not thrilled about the implications of a PC release, most likely because of modding and the difficulty in controlling Kimura's likeness on the open PC platform.

Roadblock: Kimura himself is apparently an avid gamer, and would like to continue appearing in the Judgement games. Sega considers the PC platform central to its business, and their inability to exploit the Judgement series on PC could spell its doom.

Echoing Void, free update and Ultimate Edition July 28 for Minecraft Dungeons

The End is nigh for Minecraft Dungeons

The current Minecraft Dungeons story arc is drawing to an end with the Echoing Void DLC, which takes you to the very home of the Endermen.

Free update: A free update will launch alongside Echoing Void, which introduces the labyrinthine Gauntlet of Gales, filled with puzzles and trials. The update also includes the new enchantments Ambush, Shadow Blast and Void Strike.

All-in-one: A new Minecraft Dungeons: Ultimate Edition is also on the horizon, and will include the base game as well as all six DLC. It will launch on July 28th alongside Echoing Void.

What was Legion translated as in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night?

Nothin' more romantic than gunfire

ANSWER: The International Nanny Association!

Legion is one of the coolest recurring bosses in the Castlevania series: A mass of mindless bodies surrounding a fleshy core. It has appeared in 10 different games and animated shows since being introduced in Symphony of the Night – but wasn't always known as Legion in the Western localizations.

Instead, the writhing mass of sinful flesh was called Granfalloon, after Kurt Vonnegut's novel Cat's Cradle. A Granfalloon is a group of people who affect a common identity or purpose, but whose association is otherwise meaningless. It's a fun twist on the concept, but eventually replaced with the simpler Legion. Maybe Vonnegut just isn't goth enough for Castlevania?
