The DC Extended Universe needs to die

I remember back in 2013 when Man of Steel came out. It was meant to be the big return of the Blue Boyscout to theatres after 2006's groan-worthy Superman Returns. After its release, people were split on whether or not Man of Steel was a goo...

It's time for my follow-up appointment with Theme Hospital

Usually, I'm quite indignant about any suggestion that my commitment to the PlayStation brand could bite me full force in the arse. I've grown complacent about the fact that everything I want either 1) comes to the PS4, or 2) is so bare-bon...

What's your favorite cheat code?

Cheat codes are a lost art in the modern era of gaming. Along with unlockable costumes and other cosmetics that used to be free, developers have monetized “cheating” with loot boxes, crates, and other microtransactions wher...

It's time to give licensed games more creative freedom

Insomniac’s Spider-Man is quickly becoming one of my favorite games of 2018 because it’s Insomniac’s Spider-Man. It’s not simply another game with Spider-Man’s face on it, nor is it just another superhero game;...

Comedies today are a tragedy

Last month, The Happytime Murders opened to a pretty tepid response, both critically and financially. Having a budget of $40 million, not including advertising, so far the movie has only made half of that back and it's been out for well ove...

Sharknado isn't so bad it's good; it's just bad

When I pitched to Flixist's Supreme Overlord Matt a Sharknado Retrospective, I had a pretty clear-cut goal in mind. I wanted to look at all six movies in the franchise, with the most recent one being last month's The Last Sharknado: It's Ab...

Adventure Time ends today: What does the show mean to you?

[Art by Paul Robertson] I have no doubt that Adventure Time will go down in the books as one of the most influential cartoons in history. It's success signaled the start of a new generation of animated shows that were wildly risk-taking wh...

Shenmue and Yakuza are really not that similar

For nearly as long as I’ve been playing Yakuza games, I’ve always read comments from fans saying, “These games are like Shenmue”. At first glance, that definitely sounds accurate. I even remember making such a claim ...

Enjoying the most ridiculous crossovers in gacha games

Crossovers are a simple but straightforward way to create fun. Ever since we were kids, many of us have fantasized about what Favorite Character X might do if they met Favorite Character Y, or entered Favorite World Z, or fought Favorite ...

Dragon Quest IX's greatest innovation changed the way I game

There is a very solid chance I would not be the Dragon Quest fan I am today without Electronic Gaming Monthly. Before I really fell for the online scene, that magazine was my gateway to the gaming world. I subscribed for three years an...

How Dragon Quest Swords got me into Dragon Quest

Dragon Quest has been one of my favorite RPG series for about a decade. Simple, idealistic fairy tales resonated with me in my childhood the same way colorful, idealistic shonen anime worlds did in my college years, so it’s little won...
