Joe

Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.

It shouldn’t come as a shock, then, that the upcoming third Witcher game will include a love scene or two. But just how much sex the game will have might surprise you.

Halo 5: Guardians is being billed as a return to form by its developers, and they’ve released an early beta to prove it. So does the game live up to the […]
