Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice feels like it has already shown all its cards

It's no secret to anyone that Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric on the Wii U was not well received by critics or players. From buggy execution to slow and meandering gameplay, Sonic Boom in many ways exemplified what many long time fans have feared...   read

Are you picking up Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse?

At first it was hard to make sense out of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse (known in Japan as "Final"). Initially I thought it was just an expansion of sorts for IV, but as it turns out, it's a brand new game. Now you'll be playing as more...   read

Ha, ThinkGeek is doing a Proto Man Buster replica too

Back in 2014, ThinkGeek unleashed a Mega Buster replica out into the world for $80, that has since been cut to $50. It was a little to silly and unwieldy for my tastes, but I imagine someone's son or daughter is having the time of their lif...   read

Here's all the hardware news out of E3 2016

Ha, the new Mario Party art is lifted from a SpagettiOs can

Injustice 2 continues to be a ridiculous fun-to-watch spectacle

I am nothing if not a generous and kind soul, so I will say this now to those of you who may want to disregard my opinion: I don't play fighting games. I have in the past (I'm a Soul Calibur dude), but it's just never been my genre of choic...   read

Xbox's new Play Anywhere initiative doesn't necessarily include cross-play

Is this a lyric from ZZ Top's 'Burger Man,' or something said on an E3 stage?

For a rock band formed in Houston, Texas in 1969, ZZ Top is weird. But in the most straight-faced way that you might not catch if you don't stop and look, kind of like reading the headline "Man bites dog." Two front men with dark sunglasses...   read
