  • Blog Post: Ignoring Amiibos And The Video Game Collector Itch

    Like most kids growing up, I only got a few games a year on birthdays or Christmas.

  • Blog Post: Future Amiibo Figures We'd Love To See

    With its all-star cast of recognizable characters, the Super Smash Bros. line of Amiibos served as a great introduction to the figures.

  • Blog Post: The Orchestrator Of The Fake Super Smash Bros. Rayman Leak Tells Us Why He Did It

    Fake leaks and falsified video game documents appear online every day, but Omni Jacala's fake Super Smash Bros. Rayman leak is a cut above the rest.

    The Majora's Mask 3DS remake isn't too far away, but it's never too early to start thinking about what Zelda game deserves to be remade next.

  • Blog Post: Opinion – 2015 Is Anyone's Year

    Going into 2014, the PlayStation 4 had a clear advantage. While Sony’s latest console flew off shelves during its launch window in late 2013, Microsoft’s Xbox One couldn't attain the same sales under the weight of a higher price tag and unclear pre-release brand messaging. At the same... More
  • Blog Post: Wade Wojcik's Top Five Games Of Last Generation
