Never Played: Cities Skylines

The Very Definition of Digital Crack I purposely avoid games like Cities Skylines. It’s not because I dislike them; I LOVE city planner games. It’s just that family gets really worried when they can’t get a hold of me. Sim games make me lose long tracts of time. As proof, I am writing this sentence at 4:19 AM on a Monday. I spent my Sunday building my city. ALL of Sunday. Yes, I had to use the bat...[Read More]

Until now, however, the only multiplatform title in the series has been Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. That ent...[Read More]

2016 and Video Games: The Bullshit Year in Review

Every year, by the time Christmas passes, we all take stock in the year we had. Many of us look back, promise to do better next year, and look forward to a better New Year.

I’m old; I ain’t changing anything except my underwear, and even THAT can be prolong...[Read More]

But recent history and other rumors shake my faith enough that I have to don the grump mask one more time. First, a little back story. Back in March 2014, Capcom’s contract with Marvel ended. The partnership that saw the release of some of the most beloved ...[Read More]
