    More Zelda



  10. Jesse Pike on February 26, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    So nobody played the original little nightmares I see because nobody’s talking about how he got the main characters name wrong, the main character in little nightmares was six , nine was movie from Tim Burton



  11. Rahaf Warraq on February 26, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    not @ me just waiting for genshin impact 🧍🏽



  12. Abc abc on February 26, 2021 at 10:02 pm

    Most games look straight up garbage or are multiplatform and who would buy the game at the same price for a worse version.



  13. UNIB on February 26, 2021 at 10:05 pm

    damn stories 2 shit i gotta buy a switch



  14. Emil S on February 26, 2021 at 10:06 pm

  15. General BaconBurger on February 26, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Sadly Little Nightmares 2 is actually not co-op even though it really looked like it would be and SHOULD be



  16. Elite Gaming LiNX 4 Fan Q-Elite on February 26, 2021 at 10:07 pm

    Me skipping: Oh..New Pokemon Saga!
    When the video continues: leaves the room to rage.



  17. Geekella on February 26, 2021 at 10:07 pm

  18. vermillion sky on February 26, 2021 at 10:08 pm

    Little nightmares 2 is not co-op lol we knew that they weren’t going to go that route last year. If your going to share information about the games that are releasing at least ensure your being accurate on what you are saying.



  19. gr8latino on February 26, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Uh Limited Run is putting out the physical of Scott Pilgrim.



  20. Angel Lambert on February 26, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    "I believe their name was nine."

  21. Lone Note on February 26, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    I plan to buy:
    – Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
    – Persona 5 Strikers
    – No More Heroes lll
    – Shin Megami Tensei V
    – Bayonetta 3
    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2
    – Genshin Impact

    – Monster Hunter Stories (never heard of this one but it looks good so I’ll keep my eye out for this one

    The rest aren’t really my cup of tea but I will check out the trailers/gameplay to see if they change my mind

    Side Note; Can someone please explain Pokemon Snap to me please I just don’t get it what’s so much fun about taking a picture of a Pokemon?
