Review: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U)

Games don’t tend to age as well as entertainment from other media. A movie made 60 years ago, even if it’s not a particularly well-made movie, can be just as enjoyable today as it was when it first hit theaters. There are many v...   read

I totally regret canceling my Nintendo Switch pre-order

The blistering cold wind kept me close to the building, my arms tight against my body. I had known it would be chilly but foolishly didn’t prepare for the wind even though I would be right on the water. With two hours to kill, I attem...   read

8-4 won't be handling Xenoblade Chronicles 2's localization

It's a bit weird for me that we're getting a new Xenoblade Chronicles game in the first year of the Nintendo Switch. Barring any unforeseen delays, we'll be returning to this wonderfully expansive sci-fi world once more before the end of 20...   read
