What's the point of pop culture references?

Like a huge percentage of people, I went to go see Black Panther last weekend. It's a pretty damn good movie and I had a ton of fun watching it. It's probably up there in my Top 5 favorite Marvel movies if only because it had...

50 Shades: Porn afraid to be porn

I don't think I'm really offending anyone when I say that the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy is one of the worst trilogies to ever happen to cinemas. It's rare to see a story told where every installment is awful from beginning to end,...


Why physics matter so much to Sonic games

Can Star Wars just... stop? For a little bit?

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far, away, Star Wars was an event. Star Wars was a property that always seemed to be much bigger than it actually was. Up until 1999 we only had three Star Wars movies to contend wit...


These bands would make awesome game soundtracks

It's not a new phenomenon for established mainstream musicians to create game soundtracks. Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo fame was largely responsible for The Sims 2 soundtrack; that little-known bloke Paul McCartney did work for Destiny's ...


SNK Heroines: Tag Team Frenzy shines in its simplicity

A Beginner's Guide to Monster Hunter: World

Monster Hunter has made the jump to modern consoles, and with it comes a brand new audience. I love seeing more and more people experience the series for the first time, just as I did not too long ago. Where do I even begin? There is a...


What book should be turned into a video game?

On the single shelf in my closet that houses all the novels, games, and movies that aren’t currently tucked away in storage boxes is a particularly thick, purple book. It’s H.G. Wells: Seven Novels, one of those big, colorful cl...

Excite Truck is gaming's most underappreciated launch title

There is nothing more invigorating for the video game industry than the launch of a new console. It’s the one thing that brings developers, publishers, journalists, and fans together in absolute excitement for what is to come. It...


Resident Evil 7's real horror lies in its resonance

The storm outside used to haunt you obsessively. Harsh winds clash into the shuddering walls of the Baker residence. You hear an erratic moan from upstairs. Or was that the wind? You don’t know. You’ll never know. It may have be...


So, just what is left for the Nintendo 3DS?

On February 26, the Nintendo 3DS will celebrate its seventh year on the market. In that time, it has sold more than 70 million units worldwide and more than 340 million games. It’s been home to the great franchises we grew up with lik...
