Kevin Mersereau's Top Five Games of 2017

It’s officially the year 2018 and not a whole lot has changed so far. I’m still a bald, broke, and excessively sweaty college student with an unhealthy obsession for video games. Luckily, that means I actually took the time to p...

My one big worry for Destiny 2 after watching the reveal

The Destiny 2 gameplay reveal hit last week, and for the most part I'm pretty high on it. The stronger integration of clans into the game sounds very cool. The fact that it will facilitate mostly solo players getting to play its endgame con...

Palmer Luckey did not start with nothing

What's your Dark Souls strategy?

I like to run a lot of funky builds in the Dark Souls games. Big guys swinging around huge two-handed clubs and hammers are a favorite. But so are svelte, nimble little assassins with a buckler for parrying and a nasty little spike of a dag...

Are you spoiling Dark Souls III for yourself?

The last few days have been agony for me. After it got out that it was possible to download the Japanese version of Dark Souls III with English subtitles and menus, seemingly every YouTuber and streamer in the world has made it their missio...

What's so great about Undertale and The Witness?

In the last few months, two games were released that I feel might be among my favorite games of all time, Undertale and The Witness. But what exactly makes them two of the greatest gaming experiences I've had in recent memory? Well, it...

The hardcore Destiny community forgets why we play

I've been playing a lot of Destiny lately -- late to the party, I know -- and going deep into the rabbit hole almost requires players to frequent r/DestinyTheGame or some other similar community site. Without it, I'd never know about a lot ...
