Emery wants Arsenal to play on the front foot
Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Pep was asked what motivates him as the new campaign fast approaches. Emery added that Stan Kroenke's bid to take sole ownership of the club could be positive for the club.
Taking all of this into consideration, should this be the official route Nintendo is taking, then it would be good news for gamers, as it means that the Big N won't force players to pay an additional fee to get through a paywall barrier between them and their favorite free-to-play titles. It will also be possible to play these games offline. This includes games that have received a score of 8 or higher on GameSpot since the console's release, as well as reviews for new games and updates to reviews of older games that were ported to Switch.
