Review: Hyperkin ProCube controller

When I first saw Hyperkin's ProCube controller, I wanted to give it a go. Most of us have been disappointed with the fact that the Super Smash Bros. GameCube adapter only works with that one game, even if I did get a whole lot of use o...   read

Review: LEGO Marvel's Avengers

Review: SteamWorld Heist

SteamWorld Dig is a criminally underrated game. Although some were quick to judge its short length, it's the perfect thing to pick up and play at the drop of a hat, and the pacing is basically perfect. Heist is a completely differ...   read

Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash

Review: LEGO Dimensions

As I've talked about in the past, I'm usually the go-to person for the toys-to-life genre. I'm a kid at heart, and occasionally, I can enjoy a silly kids movie for the fun of it. No series has encapsulated that silliness more than the LEGO&...   read

Review: Skylanders: SuperChargers
