I’m unabashedly in love with Nintendo; ESPECIALLY Zelda! Spelunky is my jam. Burritos are life.

Opinion: Microsoft needs to up their game at E3 this year.

The internet has been pretty harsh on Microsoft lately with jokes about how well their console performs as a Netflix box. Even at Pixelrater, it has become normal to nag on the Xbox One for having nothing to play. Obviously we don’t mean LITERALLY nothing to play. On the contrary, I spend most nights playing […]
