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…

Co-Op Update Now Available for Stardew Valley on Switch

In a blog post earlier this week, Eric Barone (aka ConcernedApe) spread the good word that the co-op update for the Nintendo Switch version of Stardew Valley would be available to download on Wednesday, the 12th (i.e., yesterday). Well yesterday arrived and with it, the co-op patch. Now you and up to three friends can all work a farm together, romance the local populous, and explore some caverns.

If your co-op buddy could play as the dog or Nana, then it would be GOTY

Return to Hope County This February in Far Cry: New Dawn

If you thought you were all done with Hope County, think again. Ubisoft announced Far Cry: New Dawn last week, which is being setup as a kind of mini-sequel to Far Cry 5. I'll go ahead say here that if you care at all about the ending/story of Far Cry 5, I'd avoid going any further in this news post... or reading the background section of the game in our database.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Coming Exclusively to Switch Next Year

While there were a number of exciting moments during this year's Game Awards, perhaps one of the more memorable ones for us was the reveal of a new Ultimate Alliance game, aka MARVEL ULTIMATE ALLIANCE 3: The Black Order. It should come as no surprise that plot of this game - following on the heels of "Avengers: Infinity War" - revolves around Thanos and his collection of cult-like followers, the titular Black Order.
