About Us

Kyle:

I started gaming at the ripe old age of 3 with Super Mario Bros. in my grandma’s basement, and I’ve been hopelessly addicted to pressing buttons ever since. Pretty sure humanity figured out its purpose in life with that one.

My expertise tends towards games with high mechanical demands like fighters, rhythm games, MOBAs, or platformers, but I can appreciate a good story too. Some of my all-time favorites include Dark Souls, Smash Bros., Spyro, DJ/Guitar Hero, and Dota 2.
Game collecting is my other passion—I see a lonely game in the wild and just can’t help but give it a loving home. When I’m not gaming or collecting, I’m probably running, reading, writing, traveling, or doing something with music.
Want to play games? Hit me up on Twitter @HeyItsFeroz51. I’m always looking for more fight/co-op/MOBA buddies!

SMASH BROS RUMOR OF THE WEEK

 

Discussion:

Spider-Man is selling like hotcakes, if hotcakes were still popular. 3.3 million copies so far, and it’s killing it in almost every territory.

Think we’ll get more Marvel games out of this? It’s even been outselling God of War, and has set the record as the fastest-selling title that Sony has ever published. https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/talkingtech/2018/09/20/marvels-spider-man-ps-4-sells-record-3-3-million-copies-opening/1346187002/

 

 Capcom Vancouver, the studio behind Dead Rising 2, 3, and 4, is now closed.

Sucks for them, but it makes some sense given the success of Capcom’s in-house projects lately. https://kotaku.com/dead-rising-studio-capcom-vancouver-shuts-down-1829143863
