Who in their right mind starts playing a “dead” game?

After having a so-so time playing DC Universe Online, my search for easy-going, console-based multiplayer/MMORPG ventures continued. I had made a short list of possibilities, and after a quick round of eenie, meenie, miny, moe, I ended up at another decades-old game, TERA. I knew nothing about the game save for the fact that I…

First (and Maybe Last) Impressions of DC Universe Online

In my household’s ongoing quest to find enjoyable multiplayer outings, we’ve found plenty of fodder. But lately, continued interest on both our parts has taken a dive.

Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course Finally Has a Release Date!

Just recently, Studio MDHR released a brand new trailer for the long-awaited Cuphead DLC, The Delicious Last Course!  Just the stop-motion trailer alone is absolutely amazing, but I suppose our main focus should be on the set of brand new boss battles against a mountain-dwelling giant, an ice wizard, Sheriff Winchester, a cowboy who just…

First Impressions of Grand Theft Auto III: The Definitive Edition

As of writing, I’m about 15 missions into Grand Theft Auto III from the Xbox version of *inhales* Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. *exhales.* Yes, it’s a mouthful of a title for this compilation, but it fits. Within this title are three remasters of Rockstar’s classic open-world adventures: GTA III, GTA:…
