by Justin Weinblatton January 20, 2015

After what may be the rockiest console launch in history, the Wii U is finally starting to gain some traction.  Mario Kart 8’s effect on the console has been nothing short of remarkable, and has shown that there might be light yet at the end of the tunnel.  While I love my Wii U, there […]

by Justin Weinblatton April 17, 2014
Mass Effect 3 was released nearly two years ago and was one of the finest games ever crafted…….. right up until the last 5 minutes.  For many gamers, a thoroughly amazing trilogy was decimated in 5 minutes of star child babble. Even an updated ending in the form of free DLC was not enough to […]

Top 10 Games On The 3DS So Far

by Justin Weinblatton March 24, 2014

by Justin Weinblatton February 25, 2014
Recently I’ve had a chance to play Rayman Legends on the PS4 and XBox One, and let’s just say that there were some clear visual differences.  The PS4 version featured far better resolution.  The XBox One version was borderline unplayable due to low graphics fidelity.  Don’t take my word for it, though, video evidence is […]
