Happy ten year anniversary, Portal 2

The year is 2011, and the haunting, distant sounds of the Aperture facility are reverberating through our unfinished basement. My brother's at basketball practice, I have free reign of the Xbox. I've spent the past half hour trying to solve...

What did you think of the Resident Evil Village demo?

Capcom didn't make things simple with the new Resident Evil Village demo that can only be played for a certain amount of time on certain days and certain platforms. It's enough to justify an explainer. I'm not here to recap all of that nons...

Travel to the 32th zone in Sunsoft's Atlantis no Nazo

Part of what draws me to Famicom games is the fact that I missed out entirely on the culture around it. Not only am I of an age that would have given the Super Famicom more significance, but -- and this may shock you -- I’m not Japane...

PlayStation 3 games sure have gotten expensive

PlayStation 3 games have gotten expensive lately — as have a lot of other old games that are either rare, genuinely desirable as something an adult would play and enjoy in 2021, or heaven forbid, both. I'm not about to sell off anythi...

Join me on my quest to see nipples in BMX XXX

BMX XXX sounds like a terrible idea on paper. It’s technically a perversion of the Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX series, which itself is a perversion of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Acclaim decided that they weren’t making enough mo...

Hades turned me into a hack-and-slash machine

Hades was love at first sight for me. It has the bright and stylized art that I love, roguelikes are one of my favorite gameplay genres, and I was one of those Greek mythology kids who was obsessed with the Percy Jackson series growing up. ...

Loop Hero's best trait is its lore

Walking down the street to check the mail at my hometown’s post office is an eerily different journey today than it was a year ago. I still pass the local pizza joint on the town square—a literal cornerstone of a small town comm...

It's okay to fail in Disco Elysium

Disco Elysium opens with you on the floor. Your character, whoever they are or whatever might be left of them, is face-down in a nondescript hotel room. You are surfacing, breaching the plane between the void and the living only to find you...

When's the last time you splurged on retro games?

I may have accidentally gotten back into collecting Super Nintendo games. Yeah, let's go with "may." As many of you have no doubt experienced first-hand, it's been an expensive time for collectors from all walks of life. For anyone looking ...
