I've played single-player games offline and spent a few hours online splatting the world with ink during the Splatoon 2 testfire event.

Nintendo Remains Innovative, Imaginative, and Out of Touch with the Switch

Now that I've had a few days to digest the recent Nintendo Switch presentation, I'd like to discuss its ups and downs as a core console gamer. One that grew up playing NES and SNES, felt a little burned by the Wii U, and wants nothing more than The Big N to return to form … Continue reading Nintendo Remains Innovative, Imaginative, and Out of Touch with the Switch

[REVIEW] Titanfall 2’s Campaign is Glorious

Titanfall 2 Developer: Respawn Entertainment Publisher: EA Release date: October 28, 2016 Available on: PS4 (reviewed), Xbox One, PC (via Origin) Although the original Titanfall made waves as one of the biggest Xbox One exclusives in 2014, the lack of a campaign was super depressing.

When Oculus Rift was priced at $599.99, followed by HTC Vive's $799.99 announcement, we knew one thing was certain: virtual reality is going to be expensive. And that doesn't even take in to account the cost of a PC rig worthy of running either one.
