Feature – Pinball Then … and Now

We all have our favorite pinball machine, and it’s easy to remember dumping dozens of quarters into it as adolescents to set a new high score. What most of us don’t know is that the classic pinball machine, the one we know and love, is a design that evolved over hundreds of years. Strangely enough, […]

Review – Rare Replay

Back in 2002 Microsoft purchased a company that had made a name for themselves in the world of game development. Rare, known for titles like Banjo-Kazooie and GoldenEye 007 was well-established and beloved to many. For a time, Rare was cast aside and used exclusively for what seemed like “busy work”.

Feature – Those Vintage Valuables

Have you ever run into an old friend wearing a T-shirt of some unknown band you remember listening to when you were younger?

Yogibo Max (Bean bag) review

Shopping for furniture is a drag, especially when you’re a student.

Giveaway! Win a Tesoro Kuven 5.1 PC Headset!

I’ve had this thing kicking around, boxed up, since my review awhile back, and I simply don’t want it to go to waste. For you newcomers, I get headsets and speakers and other hardware consistently for the reviews I publish for College News Magazine and, while I normally get to keep them (and that’s cool), there’s […]

Review – Windward

Adventuring on the high seas is never an easy task, but then again if it were easy, everybody would be doing it. The same could be said about games that take place on the high seas, though Windward, newly released on PC, makes a valiant attempt. The game is, above all, enjoyable and provides hours […]

A few days back, a number of screenshots of The Witcher 3 were uploaded to Imgur and shared to Reddit that questioned the game’s visual fidelity.
