NHL 21 Review – A Playoff Hopeful

The game of hockey is always changing. And the last few years, we’ve seen the speed, skill, and creativity surge as a more physical, grindy game takes a backseat.

Forget Super Mario 3D All-Stars, the real celebration of Super Mario Bros.’ 35th anniversary turns the original game into a battle royale.

NBA 2K21 Review – Living Off The Legacy

Just like the star athletes that adorn its cover every year, NBA 2K has created a strong legacy, launching it to the top of this generation’s sports games.
