Review: NES Classic Edition

The NES was the first console I ever owned. Somehow I had saved holiday and birthday money for over a year to get it (the idea may have been planted by a family member) at five years old, and although I don't remember every detail of that p...   read

Skyrim: Special Edition mods are off to a decent start on consoles

Bethesda has brought back The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with a re-release for PC and consoles. It's out today and, unsurprisingly, my feeds are freaking out. I'd say I forgot how big this game was in 2011, but I haven't. Skyrim never left us,...   read

Review: Batman: A Telltale Games Series: New World Order

The saga continues. Batman is in a jam, and now in typical Batman-related fashion, he's forged more enemies as a direct result of his own actions. What's a Bat to do? Punch and think his way out, of course.   read
