Sometimes Always Monsters is a replacement for normal life

During these uncertain times, many have clung to the new Animal Crossing for comfort. It offers players a world with enough structure to help make sense of existence, but not so much that you ever feel trapped or otherwise punished. It's le...

Animal Crossing: New Horizons wants to be my new craft

I love the original Animal Crossing for all the things it does do, and maybe even more for all the things it doesn't. It doesn't let you traverse a big world, fight anything, or ask you to do much other than wander around and engage in a re...

Yes, you can pet the Polterpup in Luigi's Mansion 3

Despite its faults, I will always look back on my time with the original Luigi's Mansion fondly. After being forced to play as Luigi for years as my older brother would always get to be first player, it was nice to see Nintendo put him...

Empire of Sin is a dream game for John and Brenda Romero

Nintendo's E3 Direct was full of a ton of surprises, but one of the more striking was the announcement of Empire of Sin. Feeling completely out of place for Nintendo's family-friendly image, the short teaser showed mobsters gunning down oth...

Destiny Connect feels a generation behind, but that's okay

NIS America wasn't at E3 proper this year. A few blocks away from the convention center, it set up shop in a Chinese restaurant where the smells emanating from the kitchen made my stomach grumble even though I had just eaten about a half-ho...
