Review: Pokemon Moon

Even though the "reading under the covers" stereotype sounds like it belongs in the movies, that's what I did with Pokemon Red with a Game Boy snake light growing up. Throughout the years as I grew, Pokemon mostly stayed the same ...   read

Review: Dishonored 2

Not much has changed since my first few hours in the world of Dishonored 2, and that's mostly a good thing. Beyond some problems with the general choppiness of the console version, Corvo and Emily have proven that they're a pair worth revis...   read

Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

Diablo III director: 'Creating a carbon copy of the D2 Necromancer would be cheating'

Just this weekend, I asked if a character and a special event were enough to carry Diablo III throughout 2017. You guys had an array of opinions, some positive ("good on Blizzard for supporting the game"), and some negative ("charging ...   read

Blizzard has faithfully recreated the Necromancer in Diablo III, yet, is it enough?

After years of clamoring, the Diablo III community is finally getting its wish -- the Necromancer class, one of the most popular classes in Diablo II, is making its way into the game. No, it's not a Diablo II remaster or a Diablo IV an...   read

Sombra was worth the wait, if you're a particular type of Overwatch player

Sombra is finally going to hit Overwatch after months of teasing. It went from "man, Blizzard can really do an ARG" to "really Blizzard?" pretty fast, but hey, they tried, they dragged it out, and now we're getting a real extra free ch...   read

Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

Review: NES Classic Edition

The NES was the first console I ever owned. Somehow I had saved holiday and birthday money for over a year to get it (the idea may have been planted by a family member) at five years old, and although I don't remember every detail of that p...   read

Skyrim: Special Edition mods are off to a decent start on consoles

Bethesda has brought back The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with a re-release for PC and consoles. It's out today and, unsurprisingly, my feeds are freaking out. I'd say I forgot how big this game was in 2011, but I haven't. Skyrim never left us,...   read
