“Get outta the way!” Like Bayonetta, there have been very few titles like Vanquish in the last ten years.

The Trinkets and Kinship of Shenmue

“Maybe I Should Get Another” I have always had a thing for little trinkets. Back when I had to work in an office, my desk accommodated a Lego character here, a Marvel miniature there, an overall undeniable youthful spirit everywhere. My desk at home is a similar fixture, except…
