AEW Fight Forever is a welcome refresh of the wrestling game genre (Nintendo Switch)

It’s been a while since I was excited for a wrestling title. I played a few back in the 2000s and 2010s, but I would be lying if I didn’t say I had butterflies in my stomach when I downloaded the first video game release by All ELite Wrestling, Fight Forever. The roster is chock-full of legends (Chris Jericho, CM Punk), up and coming stars (“Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, Wardlow),…

Skullcandy S5PXW Riff Wireless Headphones

Sometimes, we receive products that have such a buzz around them that they never actually make it to our door. The first time Skullcandy’s PR firm sent us a pair, one of our neighbors kept the box and swore up and down that they had neither seen hide nor hair of them. Anyway, we received a second pair to check out. The battery life of the Riff wireless headphones is…

FosPower Kids Headphones

Over the course of the last few years, we have received a number of headphones that have been designed for the children’s market. The trend for these products have been to skimp on the product as much as humanely possible, making it difficult for the product to stand up to any sort of normal usage. About a month ago, we received the FosPower Kids Headphones for review. Our daughter (4…

The title is able to both build upon the tradition of overhead RPGs like Diablo and Torchlight while delving deeply into the lore that has been built up for the last thirty years by Games Warehouse. The…

Black Desert Online: Continuing to Remain Strong

The wife and I have been fans of MMORPGs for quite a few years and have been active on titles from a year or two on different offerings. The great many of these titles simply tried to recreate what has been done very successfully by early forays into the style without providing much difference to the overall play of the game.

The Deadly Tower of Monsters (PC)

The Deadly Tower of Monsters (PC, Available Now) is an interesting action game that goes and calls upon the rich tapestry of monster and other cult movies to create an engrossing experience for players. The game itself is fairly simple in that one needs to dispatch a variety of movie monsters including T-Rexes, octopi, monkeys and UFOs that feel pulled from movies of the modern (1950s-1960s) era.

Mysterium (PC Game)

A digital translation of a classic board game, Asmodee Digital’s Mysterium is a must-buy for anyone that is a fan of the physical game. The company has made a tittle that is bright, vibrant, and engrossing. Visual elements (animations, sound) are a nice touch to the game, with great enough depth to stay fresh after a number of games. The only issue that we experienced was the scrolling aspect; while…
