Hey $gtBallZak69, I’ve got some good news!

Sony has heard the cries and complaints and have decided it’s time to let your PSN mature with you. The overly requested PSN Online ID Change feature is currently in the Playstation Review Program. That means it’s pretty much official and just awaiting a launch date.

As of now, it’s available to PlayStation users that have registered as testers for previous PS4 system software betas. Anyone who does get access will be able to do their first change for free. All changes after that will cost $10. For PlayStation Plus members, it will cost $5 after the first change.

In standard typical Sony fashion (yes as a fanboy i can admit they hardly get it all the way right) there are some weird rules. First the new feature won’t be compatible with all games. It will be compatible with PS4 games released after April 1, 2018, and “the majority of the most-played PS4 games” released before this date. That’s right not all PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games are guaranteed to support the feature. Users might see issues or errors in certain games. If you run into any issues with the change, PlayStation will let you revert back to your old ID free of charge.

Makes sense? Yea not really, but hey it’s a start. Enjoy.

#VegaLovesVR, plus Nintendo Nintendo Nintendo.

Oh my, oh my, what a time to be alive! It’s another week to be thankful we are all some lucky gamers. Especially those of us who love Nintendo. And those of us who own a Nintendo Switch. Or those of us who just love playing video games in general. So know this, although McGregor took a loss over the weekend, the luck of the Irish has still been bestowed upon us. Yea luck points.

1. The Virtual Reality price drops are totally a part of reality.

Sony has unveiled a brand new PSVR bundle that is cheaper than the current bundles available. It even packages in the legendary and elusive Playstation Camera. This makes it the most bundled bundle of all VR bundles to have ever bundled. Alongside the announcement of the bunduru, Sony also announced a $50 price drop across all current PSVR bundles, as well as release dates for to major PSVR games. Game 1 is “The Inpatient, a psychological horror game based in the until dawn universe, releases on November 21st. Game 2 is Bravo Team, a first person shooter based around a military mission gone wrong, will be available on December 5th. Bonus point for Bravo Team being a single player or Co-Op experience. Now that right there is something to get excited about.

2. PS Plus games for September have been announced!

Let’s keep this one short and full of links. Thats right, stop being lazy and do some research. In the month of September lucky Playstation Plus gamers will be able to download and play: Infamous: Second Son and Strike Vector on PS4, Truck Racer and Handball 2016 on PS3, and We Are Doomed and Hatoful Boyfriend on Vita (and technically on PS4 as well). Enjoy. Moving on.

3. The Hedgehog is hogging the spotlight in 2017! Or at least trying to.

Who would have thought Sonic Mania, which our very own Captain Chet reviewed [forthcoming], would start the return of the blue speedster. Given how fast he moves, we should have all known he wouldn’t be held down for very long. Sonic Forces will be racing to a system near you, and yes that includes the Switch, on November 7th. What’s the most exciting part? The game will include some pretty dope nods to other incredible Sega IP’s like Jet Set Radio, Super Monkey Ball, and Persona 5! Call me foolish, but I am totally down to play almost any game if I get to play as the lead from Persona 5. Persona!

4. BioMutant: A wholly new original action RPG!

A team of former Just Cause developers have announced a brand new action RPG called “BioMutant”. Under their new independent dev group, Experiment 101, the team has gotten THQ Nordic to publish the game which will let you take advantage of “mutations, bionic prosthetics, and weapons” to make your character cool. Oh and because no current gen game can exist with game impacting choices, everything you augment will impact the way your hero plays. Doesn’t that sound insane and exciting. It’s coming at some undetermined time next year. Fun over.

5. It’s time for the Switch to bring back the Heroes!

Fair warning, the majority of news that follows will be Nintendo Switch related. This week Nintendo went into full show off mode and announced a slew of games coming to its new favorite toy. No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again was announced as a Nintendo Switch exclusive coming to the system in 2018. If you never played a No More Heroes game, <DJ Khaled voice> congratulations you played yourself. No More Heroes is an action game series that originally started on the Nintendo Wii and to see it’s return is pretty exciting. What makes it more exciting is that bosses in the game will be from other indie games, like Hotline Miami (yes, I almost typed Hotline Bling). Man I would love it if Drake were a boss in No More Heroes.

6. More Nintendo Announcements!

I really like No More Heroes, so it got its own little announcement box, however there were many other awesome Switch titles announced this week. Of the 17 title announced, these made my pants the tightest. Fire Emblem Warriors was given an official release date of October 20th and a collector edition which will include 3 CD’s, a poster, and 25 art cards. Gear Club Unlimited, a Switch exclusive racing sim, will act as Nintendo’s answer to Forza and Gran Turismo and will be available on December 1st. and last but not least, ok maybe a little, Harmonix announced Super Beat Sports, a collection of musical mini games. So despite the lack of gun related games, I’d say Nintendo showed up with the big ones.

7. eSports at the Olympics?

On the topic of Guns, the co-president of the Paris olympics bid committee announced that eSports could be considered for a medal event at the 2024 Games. However, he also believes that the olympics promote non-violence and world peace so violent games are immediately out of the picture. It’s a small step in the right direction for eSports, but what competitive games could we picture that are nonviolent? Also does this mean that boxing, martial arts, and wrestling are all nonviolent sports? I’m not the answer man, but I would love to get the community opinion on this one. Should Violent eSports be allowed at the Olympics?

Hey, remember bookmarking things? You should bookmark this page and get your lucky gamer recap EVERY FRIDAY.
