Saints Row IV’s Super Knockback upgrade takes the fun out of exploding cars

One of my absolute favorite things to do with cars in Saints Row IV is to blow them up by shooting them. Hey, don’t judge me, you probably do worse. In any case, one of the best guns to use to blow them up was the pump action shot gun. It would only take two more »

Taunt Your Friends On the Go with the Mortal Kombat Toasty Button

I’m not sure how to make good use of it but Reddit user, Buck_Rider, has made a webpage dedicated to the famous “Toasty” guy from Mortal Kombat.

Minecraft’s Water Guardian is a stalker

I was recently playing a game of Minecraft in Hardcore mode. For those very few of you who don’t know, hardcore mode is the same as survival mode, only when you die, that’s it. There’s no respawning. You get one life, and one life only. Sometimes, I like to see how long it takes me more »

I don’t like JRPGs as much as I used to

JRPGs used to be my absolute favorite type of game. I spent more hours than I can remember playing Final Fantasy 6. I got a playstation specifically so I could play Final Fantasy 7. I still consider the Wild Arms series one of my absolute favorite series ever. When I think back to the most more »

Every Sonic Fan To Sega: Release Sonic 3 Remastered!

Recently, Sonic Boom was found to be the lowest selling Sonic game of all time, not even topping out at over 500K copies between the WiiU version and the 3DS version. Naturally, fans of the Sonic franchise are all annoyed. Not because the game sold so poorly, but because Sega put out such a horrible more »
