Have you ever wished for a gaming PC that you could carry in your pocket? Neither have we, but Valve is reportedly making a Steam handheld that sounds suspiciously like a Nintendo Switch. We discuss the possible pros and cons of one of the more bizarre pieces of news to come out of this timeline.
But first thing's first, and that means game announcements (like new free-to-play Super Bomberman R Online and release dates for the upcoming Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, and Pokémon Shining Pearl). After that, we're talking news, like how Netflix wants to turn our TVs into consoles by offering an Apple Arcade-like cloud gaming service, how Sony is planning to expand its PlayStation IPs into mobile games and apps that will "complement" their AAA lineup (*cue sinister music*), and how Square Enix is rumored to be working on a Final Fantasy Souls-like spin-off.
Finally, we look back at Breath of Fire IV on the game's 18th PC anniversary (we know it's a stretch, just go with it).
