Animal Crossing: New Horizons is finally here! The first main-series Animal Crossing game in nearly 8 years, New Horizons has easily been one of the most anticipated Nintendo games of 2020. The real-time life sim has opened to rave reviews and currently boasts an impressive score of 91 on Metacritic. Animal Crossing: New Horizons has both single-player and multiplayer game modes and is available exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. Check out our Animal Crossing lounge below to stay updated and find new friends to play with!

  2. Xbox Live and Nintendo Online Outages   Both Xbox Live and Nintendo Online have suffered outages due to increased traffic on the services. As many people are staying home due to the Covid-19 coronavirus, gaming has seen a huge boost of players as it offers one of the best forms of indoor entertainment. Playerbase numbers are up across the board and it’s unlikely that they’ll be going down any time soon. Hopefully Xbox Live and Nintendo Online can quickly make some changes to their infrastructure to ensure a stable connection for their users.

  3. YouTube and Netflix Reducing Video Quality   YouTube and Netflix are both reducing video quality in Europe. This is in an effort to reduce stress on the systems and prevent overload outages which have affected other services such as Xbox Live and Nintendo Online. Although it may seem unfortunate to have the video quality reduced, this will likely result in an overall better user experience as it should prevent any lag that would occur due to high traffic and bandwidth usage. As of right now, this preventative measure is expected to last 30 days and only affects users in Europe.

  4. Riot Boosting Server Capacity   There’s a very clear theme for today: people are staying home, playing games and watching videos, which is causing increased stress on servers. Riot Games explained that North American League of Legends servers were hitting 90% capacity which caused log-in queues and extended queue times. In an effort to combat the stress, Riot has announced that they are boosting the servers to increase the maximum capacity of players.

  5. GDC Rescheduled   GDC 2020 has officially been rescheduled. After postponing the original Game Developers Conference due to the Covid-19 coronavirus, GDC 2020 will now take place this summer from August 4-6 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California. While some of the content that was planned for GDC has been released online (such as the IGF Awards), there will no doubt be plenty of great new content unveiled at the event later this year. Furthermore, GDC organizers have assured fans that GDC Summer will feature an immersive two-day expo show and “retain the same high level of expert-led talks as the traditional GDC.”
