I Will Always Love Where A Good 2D-Style Background Takes My Imagination

Like a lot of things, it started with Street Fighter II. I was a kid, not nearly as good at the game as my extremely competitive uncles who would gather around arcades when arcades were still common. It would take a while before my little hands could pull off a hadouken every time, but I …

I Fall Asleep To Puzzle Games And For Some Reason I Am Not Better At Puzzles

One of the poorer habits I have is playing handheld games in bed before I fall asleep. It’s not the best move—even with the brightness set all the way down, light has a way of messing with your sleep cycle—but sometimes it feels like the best way to slow my brain down after a long …

Battlefield V's Beta Feels Too Slow

I dove into the Battlefield V beta last night. While I enjoyed the tense gunfights, I’m not so sure about some of the game’s changes. From shifts in how ammo is handled to changes to weapon customization, my fun was tempered by some skepticism about what my favorite multiplayer shooter might be like at launch.Read …

The Many Reasons I've Taken More Than 1,000 Screenshots On My Switch

I’ve had a Nintendo Switch since its early 2017 launch and have taken 1,052 screenshots on it since then. I guess I can’t resist that wonderful camera sound that happens each time I press the screenshot button. That’s can’t be all of it, though. Why am I really doing this?Read more… Source: Kotaku | The …
