Review: Yo-Kai Watch 2: Fleshy Souls

Like Chris, I too fell in love with Yo-Kai Watch, though even before it launched here in America as I was playing an import copy before then.  While Chris seemed to enjoy the Bony Spirits a lot, I find myself torn about Flesh...   read

The heroes of Overwatch are even better as dogs

If there was one dog design I felt was missing from Lily Nishita's first batch of adorable Overwatch pooches, it was Junkrat. He's just got one of those faces. You know, one of those faces that makes you wonder what they'd look like person...   read

This Blanka toy makes me happier than Yoshinori Ono

Look at that beautiful little Blanka! Oh my gosh! I came across these Street Fighter Mini Figures from Multiverse and illustrator Miguel Wilson a while back, but must've been too tied up with who-knows-what to cover them at the time. The co...   read

Farlands looks like the spiritual successor to Pokemon Snap I've always wanted

I would gladly trade a Rock Band 4 set for a puppy

The prospect of puppies has an undeniable power. Earlier this week, professional hockey player Bobby Ryan scored a goal in a game, earning these two kids a new pup. Not to be outdone, the next day another hockey player netted three goals, w...   read

Come watch someone's dad do Street Fighter II's victory poses
