What is your favorite Final Fantasy combat system?

The Final Fantasy VII remake is a perfect example of Square Enix’s core design philosophy when it comes to combat systems -- which is to say, there isn’t much of one. Sure, the series has its roots in “traditional” R...

What DLC do you wish was a new game instead?

One of my most anticipated releases in 2019 is not a new game, but a DLC expansion to Hollow Knight. As a part of its Kickstarter stretch goals, the acclaimed bug-em-up Metroidvania’s developers planned to create a side adventure star...

Nintendo Switch exclusives we expect to see at E3 2019

E3 is nearly upon us again and a lot has changed since 2018, but one thing remains the same: the internet’s unquenching thirst for Nintendo Directs. I revel in this season of speculation and anticipation, so much that last year I...

It's time for the rail shooter to take flight again

“We’re going to break through that fleet!” Fox says as he and his wingmates assault a vastly overwhelming enemy armada. Maybe it’s one of the less memorable quotes from Star Fox 64, but it’s a moment that captu...
