Nobody likes being the new kid in town. It’s a very daunting, nerve-racking experience. Finding new buddies, getting accommodated to the new school and surroundings… it’s a huge adjustment! Now imagine going through that process in South Park, of all places. God help that poor soul. Well,...
“Prepare for Titanfall”

Words that are very, very familiar to anyone who has ever picked up a controller and stepped into the worlds of Boletaria or Lordran. The Souls franchise, starting with the PS3-exclusive Demon’s Souls, and then the 2011 smash-hit Dark Souls have managed to capture the heart, soul and emotions of...

Now this is a remaster I can get behind. Final Fantasy X was beloved by fans back in 2001 when it came out for the PlayStation 2. Final Fantasy X-2, well, not so much… at least from many fans’ perspectives. Let’s just say it wasn’t as universally loved. Either way, the two are...
