More Thoughts From Me #95: My First Trip to Skyrim

I was going to write about what (and who) in gaming I was thankful for this year but honestly, I just don’t feel like writing a list like that this year. Sorry. I am thankful for many of you though, especially Adam Roffel, Games Reviews, and some other wonderful people I mentioned on twitter. I am @df2506 there (plug, plug), please follow me. And Adam & Games Reviews and the other people I mentioned. Ok? So what is this column…

Nintendo Continuing Great Year with Splatoon Update

Nintendo has a hit on their hands, and they know it. And no, I'm not talking about the Nintendo Switch, but rather, Splatoon 2, the sequel to the fast selling and much played Splatoon from the Wii U days. Nintendo has done a lot wrong over the past 5 years - fixed almost entirely by the Nintendo Switch - but one thing they've done right, which every one else has failed, is continuing to support their titles well after launch, with free content. This week, Nintendo is rolling out brand new content for Splatoon 2 that will bring new weapons, items, and maps for ...

Xbox One X Coverage: Star Wars Battlefront 2

One of the biggest title hitting console and PC this holiday season is Star Wars Battlefront 2. After affair amount of early controversy - and some action on behalf of Electronic Arts - things are moving along pretty well for this galactic giant, as it tries to recapture the magic of the first Star Wars Battlefront release on Xbox a few years back. From a gameplay perspective, it's so-far-so-good, with online matches proving to be a ton of fun, and the inclusion of a single player experience a definite improvement over the last Battlefront title. Overall, EA ...

Why LEGO Games are a Family Experience

If you've had the opportunity to play LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 - from Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and Travelers Tales - you will quickly understand that it is a love letter to the Marvel Universe. For those who want to see some of those lesser known heroes, they are here. For those who want Baby Groot and Star Lord: they are here. The variety of characters available in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 is phenomenal, and only made playing this title with my newly-minted-Marvel-fan-son that much more enjoyable. The biggest draw for my family with LEGO ...

Skyrim Gets A Second Wind on Nintendo Switch

With the launch of the Xbox One X recently, the talk has been all about graphics. And while that is important - and definitely appreciated when playing the popular Xbox games in 4K - there is something that should be said about portability and stability, versus graphical power. I'll be the first to say that if I have to take a minor graphical hit to take my favorite games on the go with the Nintendo Switch, I'm all for it. The argument has been, "Well the graphics are going to be really poor on the Nintendo Switch." Frankly, that just isn't the case, and ...

Pokémon Ultra Sun & Pokémon Ultra Moon Review

The typical Pokémon generation of video games has been highlighted by two initial releases, followed by one ‘complete’ release. You had Pokémon Red and Blue, and then Pokémon Yellow. You had Gold and Siler, and then Crystal. You had Diamond and Pearl, and then Platinum, and so on. Until the release of Black and White, followed up by Black 2 and White 2, Game Freak has stuck to this generational system. Not until now has Game Freak again released sequels to their most popular title, rather than a ‘complete’ edition. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are ...
