The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Gets A Season Pass

The big Nintendo news last week was that their big AAA Switch launch title, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting a season pass. While Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users probably wouldn’t bat an eye at that news due to the landscape they’ve found themselves in for a while now, things are understandably different with Nintendo. I think this caught on for a couple of reasons.

Saturday Video Round Up: February 12 – 18

Saturday is back once again and along with it comes a brand new edition of the Video Round Up. It’s back to bring you the best trailers and videos from the past week, so without further delay, let’s get into it, shall we?

It was a big week for Injustice 2 as the upcoming DC Comics fighting game introduced a bunch of fighters to its expansive roster of heroes and villains. Swamp Thing made his debut, followed by another trailer showing off four femme fatales with Black Canary, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, and Cheetah.

After much success with their Wii U season pass experiment for first party games like Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart 8, and Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo has revealed that they’re doing another season pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While many of you may be worrying that Zelda has always been a complete experience on day one, it appears that Nintendo is not planning on cutting out content and reselling it. Based on the limited information, the post-launch content appears to be additional, and optional content.

I’ve also got new videos for Nier: Automata, Sea of Theaves, Horizon Zero Dawn and so much more after the break, so come check out this week’s batch of trailers!

The full list of videos await you after the jump…

For Honor Closed Beta Impressions

Well, I promised you all some impressions on For Honor and today is the day I finally deliver. With an open beta arriving this coming weekend, hopefully I can better paint the picture of what you’ll be getting yourself into. I know I’ve been talking a lot about this game lately, and I swear this is it for a little while.

At first glance, For Honor looks like a typical third person hack and slash title pitting Samurai, Knights, and Vikings against once another. It’s easy to believe that based on the trailers and gameplay out there already. Once you pick up a controller though, the game quickly teaches you that way of thinking is completely wrong.

Check out my detailed thoughts after the jump…

Now Arriving: Games of February 2017

After a couple months of relative calm, things start heating up in the month of February and no, I’m not talking about Valentine’s Day. As we approach the storm of releases that is March, February introduces us to some major AAA titles and highly anticipated releases.

Speaking of Valentine’s Day, if you’re not into the roses, chocolates and other things found on this holiday, Ubisoft is inviting you to their hack and slash title, For Honor. You’ll finally be able to determine just who would win in a fight between Samurai, Knights, and Vikings.

One of the most anticipated PlayStation 4 games also makes its long awaited debut at the end of this month as well with Horizon: Zero Dawn. After a mysterious event destroys much of humanity forcing them back into a more nomadic lifestyle, it’s up to you to explore the beautiful and dangerous world as well as discover your destiny. Plus, I mean, it has robotic dinosaurs to fight, so really, what else do you need?

There’s plenty of other titles arriving this month as well, so make sure to click below to see the full list.

The complete release list for February waits for you after the jump…
