Jason Love - Lead Editor

My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

The only person I want dropping a nuke on me is my buddy because I owe him $5

[E3 2018] - Fallout 76 May Allow For a Purely Cooperative Experience With Friends

If you watched Bethesda's E3 press conference on Sunday and thought, "hey! A Fallout survival game! I can get behind that!" and then thought, "But I don't want 'SSGSSBoneLord420' to drop a nuke on me," then there's some (potentially) good news! In an interview with Geoff Keighley, Todd Howard discussed how they're looking at implementing private servers for Fallout 76 "some period later" after launch.

[E3 2018] - Trials Rising Tandem Bike Mode Will Test Friendships

The next entry in the Trials series, Trials Rising, was announced during Ubisoft's press conference this week, but what they didn't mention is that it would include a two player couch co-op mode called "Tandem Bike." As the name implies, you and your buddy will ride on the same bike and have to successfully navigate through the levels as a team. The catch is that all the functions (i.e., gas, brake, lean) are split between you...

[E3 2018] - Latest Forsaken Trailer for Destiny 2 Reveals Big Story Moment

Bungie had a new trailer for the forthcoming Destiny 2 "Forsaken" expansion during last night's Sony press conference. Look, this thing and discussion of what's in it is everywhere, so I'm not even going to try and claim some kind of "spoiler warning" here, but if you really don't want to know about the story in the expansion until you're playing it, then just don't read any further.

[E3 2018] - Just Dance 2019 Drops In 2018

I truly admire Ubisoft for sticking with Just Dance being part of their E3 lineup. Every year they bringing out a dance crew, and they just commit. You may find it cringeworthy or awkward, but it is absolutely joyous and a refreshing break from how many of these presentations go. Just Dance 2019 will be marching its way onto just about every console produced in the past 13 years on October 23, 2018.

The secret Star Fox game fans have been waiting for?

[E3 2018] - Pilot An Arwing and Play As Fox McCloud In Starlink

Last year, Ubisoft revealed a surprising partnership with Nintendo that lead to Mario and Rabbids Kingdom Battle. Yesterday, they announced they're teaming up again for their forthcoming action toys-to-life title, Starlink: Battle for Atlas. The core conceit here is you pick a pilot, a frame, wings, and guns, and assemble your own ship to play in the game. If you pick it up on the Switch, you can do all that with Fox McCloud and his Arwing.
