RIP Stadia – We Hardly Knew Ye

Stadia is dead. Google will refund the cost of hardware, games and DLC, and by January 18th the service will be completely wound down. I know what you’re thinking: wasn’t it already closed down? And that is the tragedy of Stadia. Because it wasn’t a bad idea. Like OnLive wasn’t a bad idea, or PlayStation Now. But they held such a strange position in the industry that they would never be able to find success. Why play something via the…

I Never Played The Last of Us – Then I Did

I've never been a huge Sony PlayStation fan. If you know me, you've known that fact for a long time. I was a Nintendo kid growing up, switched over to the Xbox during my formative teen years, and swung hard back to the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch after I got married and had kids.

Yakuza Deserves Its Mainstream Moment

In the last 24 hours, SEGA has announced three new Yakuza games. And anybody who has ever played a Yakuza game will tell you that this is fantastic news – and that it deserves to be more. The franchise, now seemingly switching to its original title of Like a Dragon in the west, has been a very long-running franchise, but until remakes starting coming out and the franchise hit Game Pass I’m not sure it was hitting the audience it…

“Inadequate” Offer Shapes Call of Duty

The Activision purchase by Microsoft is one of the biggest tech purchases of all time. So naturally what people are getting really bent out of shape about is Call of Duty. It’s been a perennial big seller for generations, despite the fact that nobody in the gaming sphere admits to actually buying it. And it’s popular with good reason: it just works.

The Last of Us Part One Review

It’s been 9 years since I first experienced The Last of Us, which I originally played on PS3. The game for me unraveled a story like no other I had ever experienced in my 30+ years of gaming. It brought me moments of excitement, hope, fear and even sadness. I will say right now, and I’m not too proud to, this was the first video game that as a father…. made me cry. Ever since completing it back in 2013…
