'pillars Of Eternity' Will Arrive On The Nintendo Switch August 8

'Pillars Of Eternity' Will Arrive On The Nintendo Switch August 8

For gamers who enjoyed games like Baldur’s Gate and Icewind Dale, the modern equivalent that most would agree comes close would be the Pillar of Eternity series. Now, there have been two games released as part of that series so far, with the second launching on the Nintendo Switch.

It seems a bit strange that the sequel is on the Switch while the original is not, especially for gamers who might not have played the series before and would essentially be starting in the middle. The good news is that if you are looking to complete the series, or at least until its latest release, you’re in luck.

Fujifilm's X100F Successor Will Only Arrive In 2020

Back in 2017, Fujifilm announced their latest compact camera in the form of the X100F. Fujifilm has made improvements in leaps and bounds over the years with its X100 series of cameras, and as such, many are no doubt eagerly anticipating what the next X100 camera could be bringing to the table.

Unfortunately, you might have to wait until next year for its successor. This is according to a report from Fuji Rumors who claims that they have heard from their sources that the next X100 camera will only arrive in 2020. This represents a slight delay because based on previous X100 launches, the gap in between them is typically two years.

Android Pie Update For The LG G7 Will Arrive In Early 2019

lg g7The LG G7 was released earlier this year, although unlike some other 2018 smartphones, it has yet to receive its Android 9.0 Pie update. However the good news is that LG G7 owners might not have to wait much longer because according to LG Korea (via GSMArena), it seems that the handset is set to receive its Android Pie update in the first quarter of 2019.

There were no specific dates mentioned, which means that it could be anywhere between January to March, plus we imagine that it could probably end up being pushed out region by region, and might be further delayed if you bought it from a carrier which will require additional carrier approval before the update is released, but either way it is scheduled for early next year so there’s that timeframe we can look forward to.
