The Crash Bandicoot/Skylanders crossover is handled better than I though it would be

After getting my PS4 review kit for Skylanders Imaginators, my eyes immediately gravitated towards the Crash and Cortex figures. I could have opted to meticulously make my own character or put on my army of previously acquired toys, but no,...   read

Review in Progress: Skylanders Imaginators

It can be tough reviewing games aimed at kids. A lot of people flat out refuse to play them, which sometimes leads to me feeling weird for enjoying them. Thankfully I have an amazing wife who still watches Disney movies, so that stigma is q...   read

All smooth on the western front with Modern Warfare Remastered

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was a huge game-changer when it came out in 2007. Even if I believe Battlefield should be the series that gets the praise for taking things out of WWII, Modern Warfare shook up the standard FPS formula enough ...   read

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered will have bots in private matches

Even though it's gated behind a disc and another game entirely, I'm glad Activision (or developer Raven) isn't going into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered half-assed. It'll eventually get every map by way of a free update, ...   read
