Tekken 7 could be heading to PC

In the last few years, PC’s become a pretty great platform for fighting games. Sure there’s your Mortal Kombat X trainwrecks, but then there’s also Skullgirls, Street Fighter V and BlazBlue to make up for it. If a survey b...   read

These Funko Pac-Man figures are distressing

The hell is up with Ms. Pac-man here? Why is Pac-Man all square? These Funko figures of the classic pill popping arcade icons are up to their knees in the uncanny valley and I don't appreciate it one bit. Personally, I've never understood w...   read

Obscure Video Games: Hachiemon
