Star Wars Battlefront II Can’t Resist the Force of Nostalgia

Let’s get one thing out of the way. I don’t care about the multiplayer, arguably the biggest part, of Star Wars Battlefront II . I don’t really enjoy online shooters and the first game’s focus on multiplayer exclusively is what kept me from touching it, even if you could play as Emperor Sheev Palpatine . So if you’re looking for an exhaustive review of that part of the game, I can’t really give it to you. Plus, reviewing the performance of ...

The Exorcist Gives Us Time To Breathe, but Not Much

The last couple episodes of The Exorcist have been unrelenting and terrifying. Most of this season has, really. That’s one of the reasons it’s been even better than it’s surprisingly strong first season. It’s even clearer now that the people running the show get horror. More importantly, they know how to make horror work on TV. As much fun as the constant scares have been, a good horror movie knows it needs its slow moments. The scares are ...

SteelSeries Arctis 3 Bluetooth Gaming Headset Does What Switch Nintendon’t

If sales and review scores are any indications, lots of folks seem to love the Nintendo Switch  and its growing library of games. But if there is one glaring flaw with the console/handheld hybrid we can all easily agree upon, it’s that the voice chat solution is pretty terrible  even by Nintendo’s low standards.

Riverdale Spices Up Zodiac With some West Side Story

How long can Riverdale keep inventing new ways for a town to go completely insane without losing credibility? It’s probably the best trick the show has in its repertoire. It’s just self-aware enough that we end up giving it way more slack than we would any other show. In another series, a town hall meeting in support of disenfranchising an entire half of town while a teenage rumble rages outside would be a shark-jumping moment. On Riverdale...
