Screw the Classic Controller, use a DualShock instead

I'm not fond of the Classic Controller. Not in the slightest. And as much as I love the Wii remote and nunchuk set-up for some games, it's far from the ideal way to play titles like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. At least...

Jimquisition: Crying Through The Laughs

Most games are depressed and miserable, but are they truly tragic? Of course not, otherwise there wouldn't be a video asking such a deliberately leading question. The trouble with most games today is that they rush to the sadness without f...

Clock Tower 3, land of the f*cked up cutscene
