I didn't have to get up at 6:00am on a Saturday morning to go out in the freezing cold, sit on a train for two hours and spend 2000 yen each way to get my hands on the Nintendo Switch. But I did. I wanted to see what Nintendo's new toy had ...   read

Review: Gravity Rush 2

The Ghost Recon Wildlands beta should be good for some silly fun

Ubisoft has opened signups for the Ghost Recon Wildlands closed beta, which is something I'd like to try out despite not really feeling the co-op squad shooter's super-serious tone or its disappointingly standard-feeling gunplay. The destr...   read
