On Machinima Closing Their Channel

Last week it was discovered that Machinima, the once-massive and massively despised YouTube multi-channel network, had set everything on their channel to private. EVERYTHING. Every video they’d published over the past 19 years, gone just like that. As hated as the network is, it normally wouldn’t be a big deal. However, many a classic video…

To Craft or Not to Craft?

Last week, my new favorite obsession on the PS4, Neverwinter, received a significant update, which included a complete overhaul of its crafting system.

Unforgettable: Master Hand and the World of Light

In case you’re wondering about the vague title, I didn’t want to spoil something major for Ultimate’s World of Light, so…  Ahem, though World of Light was not nearly as cinematic as Brawl’s Subspace Emissary, what few moments it did have were epic indeed.  But what I think surprised me the most was not any…

Xbox: Goodbye or Hello?

For the past several years, my household has started off each new year with the same question: Do we need a new console? Some years this has meant, do we need to replace a dying but still useful console?, such as an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3. (As far as our library goes, these consoles…

Rocket League Has Crossplay on PS4 Now

After an excessively long period of insisting that it couldn’t be done, Sony has finally opened up their previously walled garden to crossplay with the other riff-raff out there. Given how adamant Sony was in their stance, I was certain the day would never come, but here we are. It’s 2019 and we can finally…

Who is Your Smash Bros Main?

Now that Super Smash Bros Ultimate has been out for a little over a month, I thought it would be fun to pose a little question to all of my fellow Smash Bros fans out there.  Who is your main and why?  If you want, I can go first….
