Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate Lives on through Next-Gen | REVIEW

I have been a fan of the Mortal Kombat franchise for a long time. This game means so much to me and has always brought back great bloody memories from my childhood.

A Refreshing New Way to Enjoy the Story of Dune

An Impressive Port, With a Wealth of Content

I was cautiously optimistic going into this game on the Switch. Management sims on consoles can be hit or miss, but Frontier Developments absolutely nailed this one. On top of...

Interesting Ideas That Don't Go Far Enough

On the whole, I won’t say that Black Box is a bad movie. It’s held together competently by a debut director and anchored by a cast, and characters, I found...
