Review: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

Review: The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition

As I made my way through the world of Skyrim last week, a familiar feeling set in -- my quest isn't as joyous when I'm taking the critical path. No, like most Bethesda games, the stories that you create on your own by doing random dumb acts...   read

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
