Twitch's Second Annual Summer of Pride Has Kicked Off Wed, 03 Jun 2020 08:52:59 -0400 Daniel Hollis

Summer of Pride has officially started with Nintendo, Valve, and Twitch taking part in the celebrations. The month-long event celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and its diversity within the medium of gaming. Summer of Pride began with Twitch streams dedicated to the festivities.

Over 70 streamers are involved in the celebration, including personalities such as Biqtch Puddin, who is most famously known as the winner of Netflix's The Boulet Brothers' DRAGULA, but also a renowned fighting game champion.

The games streamed will be creations that positively champion the LGBTQ+ community with representation from AAA titles such as The Last of Us: Left Behind and smaller indie affairs like Sayonara Wild Hearts.

This year's Summer of Pride marks the first time that the event will have content creators involved in raising money for multiple LGBTQ+ charities such as Trans Lifeline, Trevor Project, and Gaymer X.

Nintendo and Steam will take part by hosting sales on games embraced by the community, some up to 80% off. Steam's sale will begin on June 9 and run until June 25. Nintendo will host their eShop sale later on June 20, and it will run until the end of the month.

You can stay up to date with the event on the Summer of Pride website, with all details of streamers involved and games they will be showcasing. Be sure to stay tuned to GameSkinny for more news about the event, including Steam and Nintendo eShop sales, as it comes.

Ubisoft Adds Assassin's Creed 2, Child of Light to Free Game List Fri, 01 May 2020 14:53:50 -0400 Josh Broadwell

At the beginning of April, Ubisoft announced a period of free trials and free game giveaways to help encourage self-isolation and keep us all sane at home. One month later, Ubisoft is continuing that plan, adding two new games to the list of free titles up for grabs.

The excellent Rayman Legends is still free for now, and Assassin's Creed 2: Deluxe Edition as well as the acclaimed Child of Light are joining the ranks. These are all PC games accessed through Ubisoft's Uplay launcher, and they're free until May 5 at 2 p.m. local time.

Assassin's Creed 2: Deluxe Edition

Assassin's Creed 2 is the start of the fan-favorite Ezio trilogy, featuring Renaissance assassin Ezio Auditore de Firenze. As the "Firenze" in his name suggests, AC2 takes place in Florence, Italy, the heart of the Renaissance in Europe, which means you get to see Leonardo Da Vinci be the Q to Ezio's James Bond.

And while AC2 might not be nearly as free and open as recent offerings like Assassin's Creed Odyssey, it still features some of the best gameplay in the old Assassin's Creed style. Plus it's free, so if you're interested in the upcoming Assassin's Creed Valhalla, you won't lose anything by heading back to the series' origins.

Check it out on Uplay.

Child of Light

Child of Light is a wholly unique RPG, baking fairytale settings and storytelling into every aspect of the game, including combat. It's gorgeous, so much so we actually called it a work of art in our review (which doesn't happen often).

Lovely as it is, it's still a game at its core, and it offers plenty of absorbing RPG gameplay elements like skill trees and turn-based combat to complement the aesthetic. If by some chance you haven't experienced Child of Light yet, now's the time to do it.

You can get it here.


While the free game offerings have subsided somewhat recently, there's still plenty of deals to find. PlayStation has two big sales going on, the second Big in Japan sale coinciding with Golden Week and then a games under $20 sale as well, and Xbox Final Fantasy fans can check out most of the modern Final Fantasy titles for a discount.

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more video game deals news as it develops.

Xbox Live Final Fantasy Sale Offers Classic FF Games at a Discount Wed, 29 Apr 2020 13:08:50 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Xbox Game Pass might get most of the attention when it comes to the Xbox One (and for good reason), but Xbox Live hosts some good sales from time to time, too. As it goes, one of them is happening right now: Xbox Live's Final Fantasy sale is going on until May 8, featuring most of the PSX-era and beyond Final Fantasy titles.

Credit for first spotting the sale goes to @Wario64.

Here's what the sale includes, complete with links to the specific sale pages:

You'll notice the backwards-compatible Final Fantasy 13 trilogy is conspicuously absent from the list. That's available for Xbox Live members — just not on sale.

If you get one of these and decide you want them all without having to pay sale even prices for them, don't forget almost every Final Fantasy game is also on the Xbox Game Pass.

And if you're a PS4 owner, the PlayStation Store's Golden Week/Big in Japan sale has some Final Fantasy sale goodness for you, as well.

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more video game sales and Final Fantasy news as it develops.

Walmart Discounts First-Party Switch Titles Fri, 10 Apr 2020 11:50:35 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Nintendo's first-party Switch titles and super-popular third-party titles hardly ever go on sale. So it's kind of a big deal when a Switch sale happens. One of those is going on right now at Walmart, and it's a big one.

A number of first- and popular third-party Switch games are getting discounted to $49.94 (basically a $10 discount), and we've rounded them all up below, including links to where you can snap em' up.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Breath of the Wild doesn't really need much introduction. It's a radical re-imagining of the Zelda formula that plops Link into an open-world Hyrule and then lets you decide how you want to proceed from there.

In place of dungeons, you get 100+ Shrines with hyper-focused puzzles. In place of new gear, you get... stuff that breaks. Still, we called it "... a treat for Zelda fans and newcomers alike" in our review, and it's a must-have title for Switch owners.

Breath of the Wild sale

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

There's probably not much we can say about Animal Crossing: New Horizons we haven't already said (we said it was excellent, in case you missed that) and you haven't already heard. It's a virtual island haven in the turbulent waters of real life, giving you complete control over your friends, house, and even the landscape itself.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons sale

Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 builds on everything that made the original great, adding new modes, a much bigger player base, and even a single-player DLC campaign. That's why we called it yet another must-have title for Switch owners, saying "It's a fun, beautiful, and action-packed ride that will have any third-person shooter fan clam-oring for more."

Splatoon 2 sale

Pokemon: Let's GO Eevee/Pikachu

Before Pokemon Sword and Shield, there was another set of Pokemon games on Switch, the Let's Go remakes of the first-ever Pokemon games. It's back to basics, but still an excellent return to the series' roots with some familiar mechanics for Pokemon GO aficionados. 

Pokemon Let's GO Pikachu sale

Pokemon Let's GO Eevee sale

Octopath Traveler

Octopath Traveler was to Final Fantasy 6 what Bravely Default was to Final Fantasy 5. It's pure SNES-era RPG goodness, with eight distinct stories, a deep battle system built around interchangeable job classes, and it's the debut of glorious 2D-HD graphics we really want to see in future 2D titles.

Octopath might not be for everyone, with its lack of interconnecting stories and emphasis on combat over everything else. Still, as our associate editor Ashley Shankle said, "Octopath Traveler brings back classic JRPG gaming with style and class." It's technically not a first-party title like the others, but it's also basically never on sale.

Octopath Traveler sale

Super Mario Odyssey

Mario sets sail for kingdoms unknown in Super Mario Odyssey. Princess Peach was kidnapped once again, but Mario's journey takes him far outside the Mushroom Kingdom this time. In between seeing the sights and meeting new cultures, you'll search for hundreds of Power Moons hidden away behind puzzles both great and small. It's one of the most accessible and enjoyable 3D Mario adventures in ages.

Super Mario Odyssey sale

Donkey Kong Country Returns: Tropical Freeze

DKC: Tropical Freeze was one of the Wii U's best platformers, and it's even better on the Switch. That's because it introduces a new Funky mode (read: easy mode) that lets players of all skill levels join in the fun. When it first released on Switch, we described it as "a challenging game that rarely feels unfair, and it features the same wonderful level design and variety that's made the series so iconic."

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze sale

Luigi's Mansion 3

Bumps in the night might scare Luigi out of his senses, but the most frightening thing about Luigi's Mansion 3 is just how much fun it is (and everything you can do with toilets). Every floor of the haunted hotel is packed with ghoulish personality, puzzles galore, and so many collectibles, you'll be playing long into the dead of night with this one.

Luigi's Mansion 3 sale

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The "Ultimate" in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is much more than just a naming convention. Almost everything and everyone is here, with well over 80 playable characters and tons of stages to create your... ultimate... fighting fantasy, which is why we called it a triumph in our review.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sale

Super Mario Party

Mario's hosted plenty of parties over the years, but Super Mario Party proves there's still life in this shindig. It's a return to form for classic Mario Party, with plenty of mini-game types and a free-for-all mode. There's so much to do, you'll (probably) overlook the lack of board variety and get caught up in the fun like we did.

Super Mario Party sale

Dragon Quest Builders 2

If you like the idea of Minecraft but need structure to keep from going off the rails, Dragon Quest Builders 2 is the game for you. It takes everything good from the first DQ Builders and cranks it up to 50. The story is better, the NPCs and scenarios are hilarious, and there's just so much you can build and do both during and outside of the main story campaign. Don't take our word for it, though. See for yourself what some of the Builders community came up with.

Dragon Quest Builders 2 sale

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

Like Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is pretty much the ultimate Mario Kart experience. With tons of playable courses and racers, plus plenty of kart customization and even Zelda and Animal Crossing crossovers, you'll be racing 'til the cows come home with this one. Or not, since they're probably in the middle of the race course.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sale

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe

One of the best things about the Switch is getting a chance to play the Wii U's overlooked classics like New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. It's one of the biggest and most creative 2D Mario games in general and definitely the strongest of the New sub-series. Plus it's adaptable for all skill levels, so everyone can join in the fun.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe sale

Mario Tennis Aces

The Mario Tennis series found its footing again with Mario Tennis Aces and we called it the "best arcade sports experience on the Switch" thanks to its no-nonesense approach to tennis. While some aspects, like the story, could have used a bit more flesh on the bones, it's a great sports game overall.

Mario Tennis Aces sale

Pokken Tournament DX

Pokemon and Tekken are two very different franchises, except when they aren't. Pokken Tournament DX throws some of your favorite Pokemon together in heated arcade brawler action in a bizarre premise that has a satisfying payoff for newcomers to the genre and old hands alike.

Pokken Tournament DX sale

We don't know how long the Walmart Nintendo sale will last. If you're interested, it's best to check it out now sooner rather than later. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Nintendo Switch news and sales as they develop.
