The Switch is still scheduled to be skewered by 1001 Spikes

When people argue about game difficulty, most of the time what they're really arguing about is if said game was properly marketed to the same people who would end up enjoying it. Cuphead looks like a cute, simple 2D platformer, but it's act...

Okinawa Rush could get a taste of The Baz if we're lucky

I've seen a lot of great rushes come and go over the years. Sonic Rush, Sugar Rush, San Francisco Rush: 2049, Rush, and of course, August Rush are just few off the top of my head. With the rush market already over saturated to th...
