Opinions: Thoughts on Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Thus Far

Marvel Ultimate Alliance is a series I have yet to actually play — I wasn’t into the company’s characters and mythos back in 2006, and was content with Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 as my gaming ideal for their IP. However, time has moved on, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made me far more invested…

Opinions: Thank you Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 wrapped up its final Splatfest today, a showdown between Pearl’s Chaos and Marina’s Order.
