Now on to the News!

Nintendo NX rumors abound!: Will the NX be a high powered handheld that plugs into the TV? Maybe! Will it involve the Nvidia Pascal Tegra chip? Possibly! Will I buy it almost no matter what? You betcha!

Yooka-Laylee Toybox Released: Backers who paid for a higher tier on Yooka-Laylee’s Kickstarter got access to the non-spoiler demo of the anticipated 3D platformer. Game Informer did some comparison to see how Yoooka-Laylee pairs to its 90’s predecessor Banjo-Kazooie.

Man Booker Long-list Released: The prestigious literary award released its long-list of books this week. Even with Erin’s efforts to read newer books, she hasn’t actually heard of any of these. BUT perhaps they should join the TBR…
