Can an esport succeed with a game nobody is playing?

Nintendo Switch: A Year in Review

One year ago today, the Nintendo Switch graced store shelves worldwide and started a frenzy. We’re not talking 2006 Wii levels of crazy, but the Switch was pretty hard to find for a couple of months. Even with the console flying off s...

Do you have friends who got you into certain video games?

A week before Monster Hunter: World launches, I look back on my time with the series. The demo for 4U was amazing, to be sure, but what's Monster Hunter without camaraderie? The hooks were in, but they wouldn't be in deep and barbed if it w...

A send-off for The World Ends With You's tenth anniversary

I replayed The World Ends With You for the third time this year. In part because I got a new phone and lost my save file as a result, and in part to celebrate its tenth anniversary. Long story short, I managed to lock myself out of that new...

How Star Wars: The Last Jedi fumbles its potential

(Editors Note: We've had two pretty glowing takes on The Last Jedi, found here and here, so Drew offered to provide a counterpoint to those.) Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a puzzling movie. Not because it’s mysterious, or full of s...

Opinion: Mario Party is bad

This one is tough to write. It sort of feels like a veil has been pulled back for me. After all these years I can finally say the words out loud, Mario Party is a bad video game. Don't get me wrong, I've had plenty of fun with it over the y...

So what's up with the ending to Miitopia?

The 3DS’s days may be numbered, but the plucky little handheld isn’t ready to call it quits just yet. Today it’s seeing the release of two new first-party games in Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. Both are cute, late-in-the-game ...

Dragonball: Evolution is one of the best-worst movies ever

It’s no secret that faithfully adapting any kind of property is a tall order. Adaptations often result in atrocious products, born from disinterested creators and corporate interests looking to make some quick bank. However, on the su...
