    How Well Do You See Avatar: The Way of Water Doing At The Box Office?

    James Cameron's Avatar is the highest grossing movie of all time with over $2 billion grossed. I remember so many people seeing it back in the day because of its then innovative and impressive use of 3D. Unfortunately, the movie hasn't aged all that well due to its lackluster story. It's...

    Nintendo Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC Discussion

    Just thought I'd make a thread to discuss DLC tracks as they are announced/come out for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. I'm definitely nerding out too much over this. We have the first 8 tracks confirmed: Golden Dash Cup: Paris Promenade (Tour) Toad Circuit (3DS) Choco Mountain (N64) Coconut Mall (Wii)...

    Updates to Games After Official Support Ended

    This has been in my mind for a few weeks, but what examples can you think of when games received a content update after official support ended?

    Which Videogame Delay Were You Most Upset By?

    During the pandemic, we've seen quite a few game delays. Obviously the health of employees trumps finishing a game during these times. But even beforehand, we've seen games notoriously delayed for long periods of time like Duke Nukem Forever and, more recently, Metroid Prime 4. I'm curious...

    Best New Game Announcement at E3 2021

    This year's E3 was a little low on new game announcements compared to previous years. That said, it's understandable given that development cycles were affected by the pandemic.

    Best/Worst Paced Zelda Games

    I feel like Zelda games generally have good pacing with the story progressing and not spending too much time in one area. But once in a while, you get a game that isn't as well paced as the others. Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword are well known examples of overly long introductions. I...
