Everything you need to know about Wario

It’s often said that Wario is an enigma. Who says that? That’s not one of the questions we’re here to answer. It’s Wario Month here at Wariogon, and there are some burning questions out there about Wario. While he’s certainly the loudest and proudest of the overall-wearing citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom, there are some […]

You can already preload Halo Infinite, sort of

If you’re an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, it looks like you can preinstall* Halo Infinite, a game launching a good three months from now. (*You’ll be preinstalling what appears to be a 280.2 MB placeholder file, not a full build ready to play in the first minute of launch day or anything.) Nonetheless, Halo fans […]

Can you teach AI common sense?

All the sessions from Transform 2021 are available on-demand now. Watch now. Even before they speak their first words, human babies develop mental models about objects and people. This is one of the key capabilities that allows us humans to learn to live socially and cooperate (or compete) with each other. But for artificial intelligence, […]

OK, Kingdom Hearts, you win: I love Final Fantasy now

Like many kids born in the mid-’90s, I spent my childhood obsessing over Kingdom Hearts. I dove into the series for Donald, Goofy, Aladdin, and that constant tease of Mickey Mouse.

In Chicory, you fight the embodiment of self-destructive thoughts

Chicory can’t finish her work. She’s an artist, and an important one at that. She’s the wielder of the brush, a magical artifact that brings color into the black-and-white world of Picnic. But she doubts herself, her ability to paint creatively, and her worth as the brush wielder. Chicory starts to paint but erases her […]

You Can’t Convince Me That I Need To Buy A Switch Pro

I found my Switch yesterday, buried under a pile of clothes on a chair that hasn’t been sat on since we were allowed to walk around without a mask. The Switch hasn’t been there that long, mind – I put around 100 hours into New Pokemon Snap back in April, although I don’t think I’ve played […]

Scarlet Nexus Is Good But You Should Play Genshin Impact Instead

Earlier this week, after playing through loads of the 40 free demos that launched on Xbox during E3 2021, I decided it was high time to give Scarlet Nexus a whirl. For those unacquainted with it, it’s an intensely anime action-adventure game that opts for a combination of the kind of hack-and-slash combat you’d find in […]
