A wild console has appeared at Gamersyde's and we had to tell you about it, at least briefly. As you saw, it is the Nintendo Switch in its gray design that we have been given by the Japanese publisher to cover its worldwide release next week. We will then be able to share videos of the different games to come. While waiting for the continuation of our coverage next week, you can check out the few photos we took this evening.
While many players are eagerly awaiting the upcoming release of all the big 2017 games, we are so nostalgic that we cannot resist sharing some more oldies with you guys. After the Mega Drive Mini, it's time to focus on the Nintendo Classic Mini.
Since we were lent the Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Genesis (Mega Drive) by AtGames, we thought you might want to see what some of the 80 games included in the console look like today. Sadly for Streets of Rage and Ecco fans, this special edition of the console does not include the games of the 2 famous franchises, contrary to the other version presented on the manufacturer's website. Instead, you'll get Phantasy Star 2, Phantasy Star 3 and Sonic 3D Blast (plus a few other minor changes in the list of games). Unlike the recently released NES Classic Mini, you'll also be able to use the original cartridges (well, most of them) if you still own any.
A bunch of developers from Obsidian decided it would be fun to recreate Mos Eisley using Unreal Engine 4, and the result is impressive to say the least. Despite the few hits the framerate takes even with our GTX 1080, Tatooine's most ionic town looks superb and incredibly realistic. Needless to say we were speechless when we saw how detailed the Milenium Falcon was. If this does not make you want to play a Star Wars game this gorgeoous, we don't know what will. If you want to try it yourself and get morte information on the project; follow the link. Update: Second video added.

Sony officially unveiled the PS4 Pro during the PlayStation Meeting event earlier today in New York. While support of 4K and HDR were expected, the lack of a UHD Blu-Ray drive was clearly not. The console will hit store shelves on November 10 for $399, images and details inside.

GSY PODCAST | PC, PS4, Xbox OneMonday, July 18, 2016 | 3:00 PM
As promised, our monthly podcast series is back in July and this time we have shortened it to a bit more than an hour. Hopefully you won't have too much housework to take care of to keep you busy this time. In the menu today, we talk a bit more about the upcoming God of War, guts_o tells you everything about his 8-hour hands-on with Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and we also share our thoughts on the 2 big indie games released earlier this summer: Inside and Furi. Last but not least, we also debate on Japanese games of yesterday, today and tomorrow. Our next podcast will be split into several parts as we will tell you about all our Gamescom presentations and hands-on sessions in a bit more than a month.
GSY PODCAST | PC, PS4, Xbox OneSunday, July 3, 2016 | 8:45 PM
As promised, here is the long-awaited (or not) podcast focused on E3 2016! We know we are running a bit late, but it took us a while to record this first real attempt at an audio-only show. Those who have been following us for a while know we recorded a few podcasts during Gamescom 2015, but they were done from our hotel room, so hopefully what you are about to listen to should sound a bit better. The reason it took us so long is because we had to record the podcast twice, in French and English, and each of them lasts about 4 hours. We are aware it is way too long, but since we're mainly talking about E3, it was hard to make it shorter. The next ones should be more acceptable in terms of length, but at least you now have more than enough content to keep you busy during your next road trip. Because it's a first, don't expect it to be perfect, especially in English, but we hope you'll share your thoughts in the comments so we can get better at this.

Most of you probably already know of the problems and unprofessional behavior we encountered this year with our advertising agency when they failed to deliver a campaign worthy of E3. This left us in a difficult financial situation which we're currently trying to address by finding ways to continue delivering the content people demand in 2016 and beyond. Among them is the launching of a Patreon campaign – a participatory system which works almost like a monthly subscription service without the long term commitment of something like Kickstarter. For those that wish to help out, financial contributions are now possible, with some of the upper tiers even offering a bit of a bonus. We tried to find a set of bonus ideas that will help show our gratitude without penalizing those who are unable or choose not to participate in the Patreon. For anyone interested, it's easy - just to go this address and make a donation. Inside you'll find a bit more details on the Patreon system and the reasons we went for it in the first place. Update: Our Patreon livestream is up (skip the first minute and 20 seconds).
