As a fan of driving games, and as the owner of a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, I was thrilled to see the news that some of my favorite two-wheeled machines would be showing up in Ubisoft’s upcoming open world racer The Crew 2. I recently got the chance to ask a few questions of Tom Martin, Senior Project Manager at Harley-Davidson, about how this collaboration between Harley and Ubisoft came a...[Read More]
When it comes to video-based media I love movies and tv shows, but above everything else the last few years I find myself consistently watching regularly releasing content on YouTube. My favorite content to watch is a small corner of creators who specialize in Game Reviews, some of them more serious, others more silly, but most are a mix of the two. Doing bits and riffs on games, funny editing and...[Read More]

Capcom has had some rough patches over the years, especially when it comes to cancelling Mega Man games, making weird mobile ports, and still saying nothing about Monster Hunter XX on Switch. However, Capcom is also on a bit of a golden streak with games like Resident Evil 7, which became an instant classic and reviving a troubled series. With Monster Hunter World, there is hope that one of my fav...[Read More]

As we close out this year’s Batman Month, we’re going to look at one thing I’m super curious about: the possible ideas for Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie.
DragonLance helped define me as a person. I am a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, Kingskiller Chronicles, Forgotten Realms, Dungeons and Dragons, and by extension of that tabletop gaming in general. My love for these stories led to a love for storytelling, which heavily influences my life today! I love that I have a job that enables and requires me to tell stories, even if it’s a simple commercial. ...[Read More]
There are tons of animated films starring the Dark Knight, but which are really worth your time?
There simply isn’t enough time to talk about every single game that comes out. There are hundreds that we miss out covering due to the sheer volume of titles, many of which are certainly worth playing. As someone who enjoys searching the vast libraries of games on a system, I often come across some fairly obscure games that for whatever reason get pushed further and further back on my list. ...[Read More]
While I haven’t reached the level of Metroidvania academics as others that create video game content and essays, I do consider myself versed well enough in the genre to confidently talk with those experts. Since the announcement of the official Metroid 2 remake, Samus Returns, I knew I had to at least ask the creators of AM2R to be guests on the Forever Classic Podcast. Join Zach Snyder and ...[Read More]
Once again, the Dark Knight descends upon Marooner’s Rock, for it is Batman Month! And today, we’re going to look at the five best Batmen from the Elseworlds multiverse. To make the list, these all have to be versions of Bruce Wayne, and be different in some major way, be it setting, abilities, or whatnot. And here… we… go…
There were quite a few brand new IPs being presented at PAX West this year, but not many from the bigger studios. Most of them had new titles of their popular IPs, but THQ Nordic had something entirely new at their booth, Biomutant. While I was scheduling my appointments for PAX this trailer came up in my email. . .
