The Mario + Rabbids Song That Reminds Me Of Final Fantasy VII The Mario + Rabbids Song That Reminds Me Of Final Fantasy VII

Nintendo Switch, which released in 2017, brought me back to 1997. It was a whimsical song from Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle that did it.

Not Even Good Milk Can Save Mario's Cereal Not Even Good Milk Can Save Mario's Cereal

The definition of sadness is knowing you’ve spoiled good milk. Not by being proactive in allowing it to go past its expiration date. But by allowing bad cereal to touch its creamy goodness. Mario, how could you? How could I?

Cats On A Dragon Quest Adventure Is Everything Cats On A Dragon Quest Adventure Is Everything

Some of you may not be as enamoured with the Dragon Quest series as I am. But I think most of us can agree that dressing up our four-legged feline friends to go on a tough Dragon Quest inspired JRPG adventure is as endearing as life gets.

The Amazing Music Of My 10 Favorite Games In 2017 The Amazing Music Of My 10 Favorite Games In 2017

When it comes to video games, 2017 was not joking around—both for the sheer quality and their incredible soundtracks.

Pocket Camp Sucks The Soul Out Of Animal Crossing Pocket Camp Sucks The Soul Out Of Animal Crossing

After luring Kid Kat, a superhero cat with a Speed Racer fashion sensibility, to my mess of a camping ground, I lost interest in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. I’d spent hours—sometimes portions of entire days—obsessively and painstakingly crafting furniture to satisfy animals’ requests. I just couldn’t do it anymore.

Layton's London Is Almost Like The Real Thing, And It's Just As Gorgeous Layton's London Is Almost Like The Real Thing, And It's Just As Gorgeous

London has hosted my travel adventures on three occasions. Well, 10 times really, if we’re counting the ones I went on with the good Professor Layton, Luke, and Katrielle.

Golf Story's Absolutely Ridiculous, And Oh So Good Golf Story's Absolutely Ridiculous, And Oh So Good

“Years of watching golf has finally paid off,” my sister mused. Then with a pause, a snicker and a hand-waving gesture, “Though I still don’t quite understand some of the golfing terms.”

A Chat With Last Day of June's Director On Love, Loss, Steven Wilson, And Italy's Game Industry A Chat With Last Day of June's Director On Love, Loss, Steven Wilson, And Italy's Game Industry

Last Day of June’s ominous title is perfectly matched for its intentional, brooding Tim Burton-esque aesthetic. And as the game’s director Massimo Guarani notes, it’s our shared human experience of loss and subsequent coping mechanisms that is at the heart of his team’s upcoming indie adventure game.

Visit Google's Homepage, Become A Visual Composer Visit Google's Homepage, Become A Visual Composer

If you haven’t browsed the web today using Google (or maybe you’re a Bing Wiz and that ain’t my biz), check the homepage. Today’s interactive Doodle celebrates Oskar Fischinger’s 117th birthday. Who’s that? Only a cool man who created musical animations way before MTV played music videos, and then didn’t.

Forget E3 2017. The Real Party Was On A Parking Lot Forget E3 2017. The Real Party Was On A Parking Lot

One morning, you may find yourself throwing eye-daggers at friends at 6 a.m. for repeatedly blasting Mario Odyssey’s theme song. Then, later, involved in the stage clean up of half-consumed beer, cucumber sparkling water, and sweat from one of your favorite musicians from one of your beloved game series. E3 is weird.

Hopefully Yo-kai Watch 2 Will Give Me Those Familiar Summer Chills Hopefully Yo-kai Watch 2 Will Give Me Those Familiar Summer Chills

Last Summer, I went from inhaling power-ups and being a shape-shifting, cutesy mecha nightmare as Kirby in Planet Robobot to keeping the company of questionable, spirited friends. I’d like to continue the tradition of the latter once the warm clutches of 2017's Summer take hold. Yo-kai Watch 2, here I come.

Persona 5 Is Just Too Damned Real Persona 5 Is Just Too Damned Real

There are certain things I can and want to expose my curious 10 year-old nephew to. Particular parts of Persona 5? Yes. Most of the game? Not yet. I’d like for him to be engaged with it in the future. But he’s already halfway there as it’s a fictional, yet too real snapshot of what we’re all living through right now.

Cherry Limeade Peeps Are The Scourge Of Spring Cherry Limeade Peeps Are The Scourge Of Spring

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...well, when it comes to specialty peeps, I’m just a fool who needs to feel to learn.

Breath of the Wild's Eventide Island Is Nothing New, But Still Cool As Hell Breath of the Wild's Eventide Island Is Nothing New, But Still Cool As Hell

As is the norm in Breath of the Wild, I was investigating Hyrule’s shores when I spied a curiosity in the distance—an island I forgot to visit. Making my way by raft, I set upon its beach as a storm drew in. I had arrived at Eventide, and was informed the awaiting trial had a nasty surprise in store. Hooray?

Snipperclips: The TAY Review Snipperclips: The TAY Review

In Snipperclips: Cut it out, together!, the urge to cut your friends out of malice—and not for actual problem solving help—is strong. It makes the gaming experience just as frustrating as it is fun. But best of all, under that playful bit of co-op devilry is a very smart game.

Man, Puyo Puyo Tetris Is Wrecking Me Man, Puyo Puyo Tetris Is Wrecking Me

Seriously, curse those weirdly expressive puyo globs.

So Far, Snipperclips Is Creative, Cutting Edge Fun So Far, Snipperclips Is Creative, Cutting Edge Fun

On the show floor at NYC’s hands-on Nintendo Switch event—and easy to bypass amongst the bustle of activity surrounding titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild—stood Snipperclips.

Final Fantasy XV's Wiz's Energizing Elixir Is Orange Death In A Bottle Final Fantasy XV's Wiz's Energizing Elixir Is Orange Death In A Bottle

Sometimes, after a particularly weary and intense battle, Final Fantasy XV’s Prompto will whine that he’s dying of thirst. I hope he’s not craving any of Wiz’s Energizing Elixir because that concoction tastes like medicinal trash.

Yomawari: Night Alone's Not Exactly Scary But It's Still Pretty Messed Up Yomawari: Night Alone's Not Exactly Scary But It's Still Pretty Messed Up

Over-analyzing games and favorite mediums can be a real killjoy at times. A critical eye can make problems more glaring which lessens the impact of a body of work. But when masters of their craft know how to elicit specific emotions, all that is rendered moot. This is often the case with Yomawari. Damn you, game.
