Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 4

I'm not sure how to classify the games Jackbox has been putting out for the past few years, but the company sort of invented a new genre. The Party Packs' casual games turn any device with a touchscreen and an internet connection into a con...

Review: Flip Wars

When the Switch was first announced, many of us saw a brief glimpse at a rad party game, a genre that's become a staple on Nintendo systems since the N64 (though four-player Nightmare on Elm Street NES was pretty rad too). That project beca...

If you like to use your Nintendo Switch as a local-multiplayer party machine, there's more good news where The Jackbox Party Pack 3 came from: the prior two games are also coming to the system. Jackbox Games didn't mention any other specif...

Review: That's You

Party games that use your smart device are quickly becoming all the rage these days from the Jackbox Party Pack series to Use Your Words and others I'm sure I'm forgetting. Not to be outdone, Sony has now got its hands in the very...

Sony's PlayLink is a more social way to interact with games

While Sony had made an announcement about "PlayLink" last night, they didn't share any of the details about the program. I wondered if it was some kind of push into the mobile market for Sony, but the reality is different. PlayLink refers t...

The Jackbox Party Pack 3 is A-OK on the Nintendo Switch

I'm a huge fan of The Jackbox Party Pack titles as they not only offer up a ton of content that both gamers and non-gamers alike can enjoy, but they prevent your friends and family from just ignoring you and everyone else in the room f...

Review: Use Your Words

Listen up fam, if you're into making dank memes and have a few equally 'lulz' friends who want to create them sitting around a TV via their cell phones, then this is the game for you. I guess? In a world that practically speaks, eats, and b...

Review: 1-2-Switch

"Fucking stupid" is my aesthetic -- just ask anyone on Twitter that disagrees with my opinions -- and 1-2-Switch is definitely stupid, though not in the good sense. It's stupidly priced with a stupidly low amount of content. If on...

The North American Switch commercials are kind of bland

Last week, Nintendo released some advertisements for the Switch in its home country. Earlier today, some English language commercials for the Switch were released, and they'll no doubt be unavoidable if you have a kid with any sort of scree...

1-2-Switch revealed to have 28 games including 'Baby'

Ever since 1-2-Switch has been announced it's been met with lots of criticism. The more we saw and the more we played, the more skeptical we have all become of this $50 party game. One thing that was not completely disclosed until toda...

1-2-Switch is not the next Wii Sports

When the Wii launched over 10 years ago (10 years!?), people were still unsure about the concept of motion control in video games. "What is this TV remote-looking thing? How will anyone play games with this?" The innovative console turned o...

Review: The Jackbox Party Pack 3

Jackbox Games has a great thing going with its Party Packs. It's way easier to get people to play a game if they already have the equipment, nearly everyone carries a smartphone around these days. I've found that it's far less intimidating ...

Review: Blade Ballet

The inimitable Jack Handey once wrote "Boxing is like a ballet, except there's no music, no choreography, and the dancers hit each other." Add some robots, and that's basically Blade Ballet.

Sink it and drink it: Folks are playing beer pong in Halo 5

Beer pong. It's an innocent party game that is sometimes turned not-innocent by idiots with hyper-competitive tendencies and lack of perspective. It's also the subject of many bad songs. Now, it's in Halo 5 too. Making use of Halo 5's ...

Review: Drawful 2

Jackbox Games sure has this whole party game thing figured out. While I may have some friends who would balk at a night of video games (heathens) or suffer flashbacks of Chinese checkers with Grandma when invited over for board games, Jackb...

Review: Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes

Have you ever wanted to be trapped in a room with a bomb and be audibly fed instructions on how to disarm it while it slowly ticks down and the light flickers and a nearby alarm clock goes off? If so, you have very specific fantasies that w...
