Alright, so even though I’m a bit of Retro Guru here on Marooners’ Rock, I will admit that my knowledge of anything prior to the NES is pretty hit and miss. While I can name off most of the consoles after the NES in order or release and spout off all the cool little features of each, I never had much interest in anything before that magical gray box. That’s mainly because prior t...[Read More]

Back when Dark Souls 3 released it completely rooted itself into my very being. I was constantly thinking throughout my daily routine of different ways to approach bosses or shaking with delight at the possibility of new things to discover. Dark Souls 3 also has a ton of ridiculously tense moments, better than most horror games, that had me reeling through most of the playthrough. I never did fini...[Read More]

The tablet can then be snapped into the home unit to switch it to the television for...[Read More]

Minutes after the awesome reveal of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo sent out a list of companies who are supporting the new portable/console hybrid.
