About overkill

overkill.wtf is an indie gaming publication written with love, sweat and (a lot of) espresso by Kevin Wammer (Editor-In-Chief) and Chris Brandrick (Deputy Editor), curator of Switch Weekly. It is published by overkill Media SARL-S.

Our current focus is on a range of handheld, portable platforms, including the Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch. However, we believe the future of gaming will focus on three independent pillars: cloud gaming, handheld devices, and VR/AR experiences.

The team behind overkill:

Three Pillars: Cloud, Portables, Reality Experiences

It wouldn't surprise us if the next console generation will be the last (in a traditional sense) before everything moves to a streaming box format. Microsoft is heading there already, with their Xbox cloud service on TVs, an app in every browser, and dedicated streaming-only hardware on the way too.

Meanwhile, Sony is pushing hard into VR with new hardware, just as Facebook touts the ‘metaverse’ as the next digital frontier to conquer. All of Silicon Valley, from Google to Apple, and others, want a share of this new space — be it virtual reality, mixed reality, or an augmented one.

Finally, thanks to the cloud, technologies like FSR/DLSS, and devices such as Steam Deck and Switch, handheld gaming (chiefly devices that afford a wide range of flexibility) will only become more popular. We already see several manufacturers trying to enter this portable market.

This is what we believe in, and what we will cover.
