Yesterday I joined Chuck Zodl from Counterattack Games to discuss our current gaming plans, the latest Nintendo Switch news, new games that make us feel nostalgic, and the labor of love that comes with self-running a small video game site in 2017. This podcast is something we're trying to make a regular weekly thing, schedules … Continue reading CA! Radio Episode 117: Feeling Nostalgic – Switch News, Nostalgia, and the Labor of Love of Self-Running a Game Site
With the Nintendo Switch on the horizon, I've organized my Wii U's backlog in order to see how long it'd take to clear it all out for good. Not necessarily because I'm aching to shelve the thing, but it just so happens to be the smallest of my gaming libraries. Although the console is backwards compatible … Continue reading Buried Under the Backlog: Wii U Edition

It's a neat puzzle game, and definitely not at all what I expected. I've never been a huge Hitman fan, so it's odd that the one … Continue reading Weekend Gaming: What are You Playing?
On May 17th, Nintendo will be partnering with developer Mojang to bring a free Super Mario Bros. update to Minecraft on the Wii U. Skin packs are nothing new to Minecraft, but they usually have a cost associated with them. Even on Xbox One, the home of Microsoft (who acquired Mojang for brazillions of dollars), … Continue reading Free Minecraft Update Makes Wii U the Best Console Version of All Time.
Renowned poet and all around swell dude R. Kelly once said "it's the freakin' weekend baby, I'm about to have me some fun!" and if Ignition taught us anything, it's that it's totally okay to spend your life indoors, posting memes, and playing video games. So what's on your agenda? I should have Severed finished tomorrow, … Continue reading Weekend Gaming: What are You Playing?
