Yes, The Series S Will Play GTA6

Grand Theft Auto 6 has been unveiled and it looks amazing. But as is standard, it’s led to a standard reaction in some of the more reactionary parts of the internet. So let’s put it to rest right here: the Series S will play GTA6 just fine. No, it won’t hold anything back. The next Grand Theft Auto will undoubtedly be mindblowing wherever you end up playing it. That is, after all, what Rockstar do. Red Dead Redemption 2 was…

Arcane Wonders: The King of Simplistic, Deep Experiences?

As a longtime fan of board games, it was shocking to me that I’d never played something from Arcane Wonders. My eyes were opened to all the fantastic games they have on offer at GenCon 2023, and over the past few weeks I’ve been making my way through their catalogue? Here are my two favourite titles from Arcane Wonder as of writing! Neotopia I love an abstract tile laying game, and while Neotopia attempts to get you invested in building…

Affordable Board Game Table Hitting Backers Soon – Project Ironwood Update

The words affordable and board game table are likely things you never expected to be in the same sentence. Even if you wanted one of the impressive Game Toppers for your standard table, you were still going to spend over 1000 dollars for a 3×5 table. Most tables today are in the range of 2000-3000 dollars, and that’s before you pay to ship a product weighing hundreds of pounds. Enter Project Ironwood, a project we have written about many times…

Is It Worth Buying an Xbox in 2024?

As we end what was supposed to be Microsoft’s first big Xbox year in a while, there are questions (some fairly trolly) about the future of the brand. And besides that, the green team are making it easier than ever to play their games without needing to buy a console. So should you buy their box? The Xbox Series X remains a fantastic console. The Series S is a brilliant cheap entry into this generation’s devices for those that aren’t…

Is It Worth Buying a PC In 2024?

With 2024 rapidly approaching, we ask what seems like an easily answerable question. Is it worth getting a new PC in 2024? Well, yes, it is. Because that’s not the difficult part. The difficult part now is the choice of how you’re going to enter into the world of PC gaming. Will you go for a desktop or a laptop? Will you stream via GeForce Now? Hell, you could even buy any of a selection of handhelds that offer up…

Is It Worth Buying a PlayStation in 2024?

A new year, and another look at the state of PlayStation. And it’s an interesting one. PlayStation stand on the edge of massive changes, and whether you should buy depends entirely on your use case. The PS5 is a perfectly decent console. It does everything you want it to do. The graphics are fantastic, the games are always enjoyable. If you’re looking for a way into next-gen, if you’ve owned PlayStation devices in the past and want to see what…

Is It Worth Buying a Nintendo Switch in 2024?

It’s the end of the year. People are starting to think about Christmas gifts. And high on the list of many a family will be a Nintendo Switch. But is it actually worth it? This time last year I wrote an article answering this question, and that answer was ‘probably not’. Why? Because Nintendo’s current console is long in the tooth, graphically poor and their next console could be announced at any time. The Switch just doesn’t cut it as…

Marvel Crisis Protocol Brings in New Players with a New Core Set

Marvel Crisis Protocol is years into development, with tons of expansions being released after the original core set was launched. In October, Atomic Mass Games re-released the original core set with new sculpts for minis, new command cards, new leadership abilities, and more. This is great for bringing new players into the game, but by changing what was included in the box (although it mimics the original) allows longtime players to get new content as well. I think right away,…

The Longing for new Star Wars: Shatterpoint Missions

I’ve been playing Star Wars: Shatterpoint since day one – in fact, we have been reviewing each and every box released since the game’s inception. I’m not a huge fan of tabletop gaming, and even though my father-in-law and kids attend a few big ones each year here in Ontario, I tend to sit on the side and just watch – it’s not my scene. Shatterpoint, however, is something I’ve grown to love, but the experience needs a boost and…
