The best stand up on Netflix right now

At the tender age of 10, I was plopped down in my father's car on the way home from dinner. My brother's leg jutted into my right knee, and we pushed against each other as the car swerved around corners, and cradled us over bumps in th...

Saints Row ruined Grand Theft Auto for me

My relationship with the car-jacking hooker-mugging series we all know as Grand Theft Auto began the way it does for a lot of people. Sometime when I was in middle school, a friend brought over a copy of Grand Theft Auto III. It was a weird...

So let's talk about Hainly Abrams from Mass Effect: Andromeda
