Rocket League Wins MVP for Multiplayer

Rocket League is the best multiplayer game – either past or present. I said it; you read it. I’m over here dropping rhymes like pouring pancake mix in a skillet.

Crash Bandicoot Spun me to the PlayStation Brand

Crash Bandicoot changed my gaming habits. When you’re 10 years old, and a fan of silly cartoon characters who emit bright colors and flash stupid grins, Crash Bandicoot doesn’t need to say much to grab your attention.  Despite undeniable charm, Naughty Dog’s furry orange tornado uttered fewer sentences than a Ballpark hot dog. In 1995,…

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms and Grandmas out there! Mothers are the glue that holds a family together.

Not Every Video Game is for You and its All Ok

I was actually really upset with myself for not…

Microsoft: Play Anywhere

With the new initiative by Microsoft, Play Anywhere, a lot of people are asking, “why do I need an Xbox if everything is coming out on PC as well?” While this is a good argument, Microsoft does not have to care. With the 20 million Xbox Ones to Sony’s 41 million PS4s, Microsoft has to…
