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…

Genshin Impact Co-Op Impressions and Stream Recap

Two weeks after its release, Genshin Impact has made quite the impression in the gaming scene. The free-to-play, third-person action game draws a ton of inspiration from Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild as well as an elemental system that's reminsicent of the Divinity: Original Sin titles (i.e., combining two elements produces a new result). We spent a little time with the game's co-op and showed off what it has to offer, as well as its limitations.

Take to the road in your food truck and serve up some delicious dishes

Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! Arrives Today

Vertigo Gaming's Cook, Serve, Delicious series welcomes a new entry today: Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! Similar to the past two games, you'll be in charge of cooking hitting a series of buttons to prepare, cook, and serve food to patrons, but this time you'll be doing it all in a food truck as you go from location-to-location driving through a war-torn America in the distant year of 2042...

Next paid DLC arrives in a couple weeks and more in-game events after that

Borderlands 3 Available on Steam Today, Spring Roadmap

At PAX East a few weeks ago, Gearbox had some news to share about their popular loot-shooter, Borderlands 3. The six month Epic Games Store exclusivity deal comes to an end today so you can now purchase the title on Steam (yes, purchase; owning it on Epic does not get you the Steam version). It's worth noting that the game will support PC cross-play between the Steam and Epic Games Store versions, and you can transfer saves between the two but it's a manual process. Additional details can be found in the official FAQ.

First mission of three-part campaign

Terror Lab DLC Available for Zombie Army 4: Dead War

The first DLC for Zombie Army 4: Dead War arrives today. "Terror Lab" is the first mission in a new three-part campaign (Hell Cult) that will be released over the course of the next few months. Also available today are some new character and weapon skins, new weapons (submachine gun and a semi-auto carbine), along with what appears to be a new playable character, the "American Sea Captain." All of this is included in the $35 Season Pass, or it can be purchased separately. If you're not interested in any of that, then there's a new Horde Map, Undead Wood, available for free.

No more content disparity between the PC and console versions

Console and PC Content Updates Will Finally Align for Monster Hunter: World

After getting out a patch that addressed some major issues with the PC version of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Capcom continued the good news train with announcing this weekend that they would finally get all versions of the game aligned so that event quests and other content would be available at the same time. Ever since the PC version released back in August 2018, there's been a content delay of at least a few weeks between it and the consoles. With Title Update 3 (coming sometime April 2020), that'll all be a thing of the past.
