Did you struggle to name your Animal Crossing island?

It takes me ages to design a character in video games, but I enjoy the process, and I don't feel rushed. Naming a town in Animal Crossing, on the other hand, is an exercise in indecision. It's maddening. I've never been good at coming up ...

After its many demos, are you still interested in Nioh 2?

With its Last Chance Trial now finished, showing off how Nioh 2 has changed since its early alphas, the sequel is less than a week away from dropping, kicking off a deluge of new games for 2020. Since Team Ninja takes feedback seriously, an...

Do you have a go-to game or console for the holidays?

There's something about late December that makes me want to dig out my GameCube, a stack of games, and a full set of official, full-sized, non-junky controllers. Maybe you can directly relate, or maybe you have your own personal "gaming com...

Have you ever played a Five Nights at Freddy's game?

Five Nights at Freddy's really falls into that "single developer" category that's been so prevalent in the 2010s. Scott Cawthon is responsible for a multi-million-dollar empire, alongside of recent solo studio names like Matt Thorson, Toby ...

Are you still playing Ring Fit Adventure?

Ring Fit Adventure came out a month and a half ago, and the unopened box I bought is still sitting on my Switch shelf. I know, right! I've been busy with a bunch of other games, and now that the slower winter season is upon us, I think...

Unsurprisingly, Pokemon Sword is selling better than Shield

Anecdotally, there was an overwhelming amount of support for Pokemon Sword over Shield during the new generational reveal, and it seems like the sales data supports that. Breaking down the Japanese sales numbers even further, Dengeki O...

Who's your starter Pokemon in Sword and Shield?

Some people don't like to pick out a starter Pokémon until they know dang well what they're in for further down the evolutionary line. Well, you don't have to wait any longer – a big (and entirely expected) leak happened less t...

What is your favorite era of PlayStation?

After reporting that the PS4 had beaten the Wii and the original PlayStation and became the second-best selling home console of all-time (behind the PS2), I had no idea that such an interesting conversation would break out among the communi...

Did you stay up too late playing The Outer Worlds?

My eyes insisted on staying extra shut this morning, and the culprit is clear: The Outer Worlds. I traded away a good night's rest in order to comb through the opening planet in Obsidian's just-launched Fallout-as-hell RPG, a choice I suspe...

Which Borderlands 3 character is your current favorite?

With all the recent FL4K nerfs, the discussions surrounding them really got me thinking: who do you play as in Borderlands 3 most of the time? I stuck with FL4K for my first playthrough during my review session, and although I did...

Which Sega Genesis Mini game are you playing first?

After asking which Super Nintendo game you intended to play first with Nintendo Switch Online, it's only fair that we extend the same question to all of the Sega fans in the audience. The Sega Genesis Mini launched today with 42 different g...

Which Switch Online SNES game are you playing first?

The long-rumored SNES Switch Online functionality was revealed yesterday. Finally! And thank goodness, it didn't involve the similarly rumored "extra pricing tier." 20 games all at once isn't too shabby either (especially given the drip-fed...

Do you game with your kids?

There's a certain delicate nature to introducing people to something, whether it's a spouse or your child. If you come on too strong they might be turned off (sometimes for life). But if pick something just right, it can resonate with them ...

What video games are you playing this fall?

I've cherished this summer as a chance to catch up on video games that slipped through the cracks in 2019 or otherwise felt like too much of a time commitment to get into at launch, but soon enough, it'll be fall. The big-hitters will begin...

Who do you have on your Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 team?

I wasn't going to get Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, at least not at launch. I barely paid any attention to the game leading up to its release, and I'm not particularly attached to the series like many of you are. But when the big day arrived ...
