The Sims 4: The Chiview

(NVGR) Why I quit The Dismal Jesters

One year later: Animal Crossing New Leaf

One year ago on June 9th 2013, Animal Crossing New Leaf released to a particularly rabid fanbase on the 3DS. New Leaf presented a logical jump for fans of the quirky slice of life sim game. Instead of playing as a strange m...   more

Strider's top 10 Kirby powers

After finishing Kirby Triple Deluxe, I came to the realization that not all powers, at least in Triple Deluxe, are made equally. Sure, that's always been the case but now more than ever do I see the Fighter power being nerfed...   more

Strider's last minute GOTY for 2013
