One of the biggest news items out of Blizzcon 2021 Online was that Blizzard would release a Diablo II remaster called Diablo II: Resurrected. Featuring a full 3D reskin of the game alongside the original pixel version with a modern online Battle.net offering featuring cross platform progression this looks like it could be on the biggest gaming releases of this year! Currently, it's not easy to play Diablo II as it requires you to install the game and install a handful of mods and hacks to play it on modern systems. One great part of modern gaming is keeping old games fresh for new audiences and remasters are a big part of that. Hopefully Blizzard can dial this... Read All


Blizzcon 2021 Online is going strong and hot off the keynote is the news of the Blizzard Arcade Collection release available today on PC, XBox, Playstation and Switch. The Blizzard Arcade Collection features old school classic Blizzard titles such as Blackthorne, Rock & Roll Racing and The Lost Vikings for $20. If you have yet to play these games this seems like the best way to relive them and they are coming home to consoles which is a solid plan considering that's how they were first released.

You can buy the Blizzard Arcade Collection today on PC as part of the Blizzard Celebration pack for $20 alongside a bunch of other DLC for Blizzard games.

Rage is a very hefty feeling but there is no need to be angry while you play it. I paid full price for Rage 2 at launch and I loved every minute of playing it but I could see a world where some people might play games angry after paying full price. If you see red after paying for things you are in luck because Rage 2 is entirely free on the Epic Games PC Store until Feb 25th. While you are there saving yourself a few bucks you can also get Absolute Drift for free too. I have no experience playing Absolute Drift but if my growing backlog is an indicator, I never will but will lament the fact I haven't.

Might not come as a huge surprise to anyone but I picked up Super Mario 3D World on Switch and have been enjoying it quite a bit. I've heard some folks online say that it's a bit on the easy side as a single player game and I get that. That said, I haven't found it to be that easy myself as I've been playing it co-op with a rather energetic four year old. I love the little guy but he's not great at platforming such that he dies a lot and MUST always be the first to get "the kitty suit." So yeah, it's fun playing Mario with your kids but playing Mario co-op with little kids might be the Dark Souls of trying to have fun playing video games sometimes. Let this scenario... Read All


During the Nintendo Direct today there was much in the way of interesting news from Nintendo and one such piece was that Skyward Sword was getting a re-release on Switch coming July 16th. Looks like Nintendo is honoring the legacy motion controls in Switch form but also creating a button only control scheme that many players have been asking for.

"Take to the skies, draw your sword, and experience the earliest story in the Legend of Zelda series. Join Link in his high-flying quest to save Zelda, a childhood friend who must confront her destiny. Soar between floating islands and descend to the treacherous surface world in this updated HD version of the Legend of Zelda:... Read All


In partnership with Valve, Netflix is releasing a new show called DOTA: Dragon’s Blood which looks to be an Anime styled sword and magic show. If this is as good as the Castlevania show on Netflix, we should be in luck! Many years ago Valve announced a partnership with JJ Abraham’s where he and Gabe discussed brining Valve properties to life and nothing ever seemed to come from that so it’s good Valve is making something happen here.

Who do I send my letters to for a Portal show?

The new Valve joint comes to Netflix March 25th.

"The sweeping fantasy series tells the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world.... Read All


I’m a bit late to announcing this but since it’s a very old game already why not share old news about it too. Age of Empires II Definitive Edition recently received a new expansion Lords of the West bringing longtime players a bunch of new content. Some old games really never need to go away and if they are popular, why not entirely new expansions?

* Challenge your friends with two all-new civilizations, each of which include unique units and technologies for you to explore!
* Battle across Western Europe and the Mediterranean in three new campaigns—including the British king, Edward Longshanks!
* Claim victory by means of sheer military might, diplomatic prowess, or... Read All


If you're unware of Kingdom Hearts, it's a series of action-adventure games in which the worlds of Disney and Final Fantasy are as one. You'll see familiar characters such as Cloud, Sephiroth, Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck. You'll also explore many of the Disney worlds created from the vast history of Disney movies. The voice overs are nice, too. I really enjoyed hearing David Boreanaz as Squall in the first game. Leonard Nemoy also had a voice over in one of the DS games I played. It's an amazing co-existence and I've really enjoyed the KH games I've played, though I've missed out on some of them. If you think this idea sounds interesting, you should check it... Read All


We are mere hours away from more Wandavision! Prepare yourself by joining us for our thoughts on the first half, and thoughts on what's to come! We also talk about some other Marvel TV properties and how they all fit together, and which ones may stick around in canon.


Quite enjoyed the latest video by MtPain27 where he admits he is Doom Save-Scum. Save-Scum refers to a play style of Doom where you save and reload to complete a level. In some hardcore circles of Doom Save-Scumming is frowned upon as playing the whole level start to finish with pistol start on incredibly high difficulty is seen as one holy grail. MtPain talks about that and admits his Save-Scumness and it's nice to hear because I am too. I don't mind challenging games these days but I play games to have fun and sometimes that means... being Save-Scum.

"Some thoughts on save-scumming, Doom difficulty, and being too hard on yourself.

"I am save-scum. When I play Doom,... Read All
