Fry’s Electronics: An Obituary (1985-2021)

Like a certain iconic electronic music duo that also disbanded this week, Fry’s Electronics is no more. For me, that is a big deal.

Someone Remade Mortal Kombat Mythologies and We’re Not Sure Why

Out of all the games that we expected to see remade in Unreal Engine 4, we’ll be honest – Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero is around the bottom of the list. When it initially released for Nintendo 64 and PlayStation in the 90s, the platformer-spun-off-from-a-fighting-game failed to impress us. Still, that didn’t stop AG 3D Art… Continue reading Someone Remade Mortal Kombat Mythologies and We’re Not Sure Why

Getting a PlayStation Vita? Don’t Miss These Five Games

It may be 2021, and its support may be nowhere to be found save for a few indie developers. But, to be honest, the PlayStation Vita is a great little system.
