Thursday, March 8th marked a pinnacle day for gaming coverage. Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Switch this year, The Division 2 was announced for E3, and Black Ops IIII (Not IV, huh?) is coming out October 12th, among plenty of other news. One of the news that…

Recently, the highly anticipated game Detroit: Become Human established its release date May 25th. Given the pattern of release date announcements from the publishers, fans have speculated the next game after Detroit would be Spider-Man, one of 2018’s releases. Obviously, nothing has been confirmed yet, but what can be…

The Nintendo Direct a few days ago left fans reeling and motivated everyone who didn’t already own a Switch to buy one, announcing a healthy mix of new games as well as ports and remakes. As excited as I am for the remake of one of my favorite games…

In my 2017 year-in review for PlayStation, I awarded the brand a 10/10 for their future from their financial success and stellar software lineup. After the financial reports of Sony released to the public and veteran Kaz Hirai announced his departure in April 1st, potential obstacles may have emerged…

Well, it’s late January again. That means it’s the beginning to the second semester for us college students and the coming of midterms for the high schoolers. I’ve been back in school for a little over a week myself, and I already miss the gaming binges I could indulge…

Which Publisher Should…

1742
It’s clear as day that EA can’t give the Star Wars license justice and even Disney agrees. With one studio shut down due to EA’s corrupt company politics and another in jeopardy, there are other publishers out there with far better track records than the two-time-winner of the Worst…
