The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a brown, clunky, cash-in of a card game

Bethesda seems to be on a streak of trying to cash-in on already saturated markets. First it was The Elders Scrolls Online, and now it's the Hearthstone-like card game, The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Publishers can't help but see the amou...

One year later, the Sons of Anarchy game may have been a scam

Back in August 2015 it came to my attention that the episodic Sons of Anarchy game, released six months prior, had virtually no updates regarding a follow-up -- despite the fact that a Season Pass was sold upfront. The developer and publish...

Nintendo's first Miitomo commercial is as insane as you'd expect

Nintendo is known for having some great commercials, like this classic for Super Smash Bros. or the infectious Splatoon Squid Kid commercial. The Miitomo commercial seen above isn't quite as great as those, but it is still t...

Review: Shred It!

Review: Shred It!

Have you ever found yourself thinking, "I'd sure like to be able to play this free-to-play mobile game on my Xbox One at a premium markup with little to no changes aside from microtransactions being removed?" Me neither, but that is exactly what Shred It! is.   read

mii-crotransactions
Miitomo, Nintendo's first mobile phone game is officially available in Japan, and I've gotten my grubby hands on it by being a big fat liar, all because I love you, dear readers. After messing around with it for an entire day and avoiding all other aspects of my life, I think I have a decent grasp of it, and it is by no means perfect. But it is damned sure addicting.   read

Telepaint review

Review: Telepaint

Titan Souls took the world by storm last year. Born out of the minds of the tiny indie team Acid Nerve, everyone was anxious to see their follow-up. While Telepaint, a bite-sized mobile puzzle game, isn't quite as titanic as a hardcore boss rush project, it's still very much representative of Acid Nerve's talent as a studio.   read

Shooting Stars! review
The highlight of this game for me was when a disco ball played a cheap sound-alike of Sandstorm. That should be all you need to know.
