With Nintendo Switches starting to make the rounds to various press outlets one thing has become clear, the system at launch will very much be limited to being a games-only console. In that there will be an eShop that'll sell digital titles, but the system itself won't have any additional features like a browser or social apps.

Full Metal Furies, which looks like a co-op brawler crossed with an action-RPG, is the next game from CellarDoorGames. And we're ready.
Even though it went free-to-play on PC, that transition never happened for the console versions of Evolve. But, thanks to being a part of Xbox's Games with Gold lineup next month, Evolve: Ultimate Edition will be made available for free to all Xbox Like Gold subscribers.
