You think back to a time in your childhood when you would turn on your old CRT television, power on the PlayStation, and digitally pull off some sick tricks while Goldfinger's Superman blasted in the background.

    Dark Souls 3 is pretty good. It's so good, in fact, that it is now Bandai Namco's fastest selling title ever.

To celebrate, a new trailer for the game was released today. Speaking from personal experience with the game (which according to Steam is 22 hours now), it's fantastic. This is spite of the technical issues (on the PC) that I have sad...

    New Ghostbusters Game Announced for this Summer

    Who you gonna call? Probably not me, because I don't know you. Which can only mean you're going to call the Ghostbusters instead. It's a good thing there's a new game coming out later this year to coincide with the new film.
