I played Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy for the first time in 2020, and I have zero regrets about that decision. I almost certainly would've clicked with it even more in 2001 (I just had a GameCube at the time), but things didn't work...

Sneezing is how you get around in Hayfever

It's a tale as old as time itself. A postman -- bogged down by seasonal allergies, fresh out of Claritin, and determined to finish his route -- hacks up snot on everyone's mail. That's the gross can-do attitude that'll see you climbing the...
