“8bitdo Pro 2” Review
As someone new to the Nintendo Switch, I was told that a controller would be a requirement for getting the most out of the system. The included Joycon grip, as it turned out, is a crime against ergonomics, and I…
“The Legend of Heroes: Trails to Azure” Review
When The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel was released on the PlayStation 3 in late 2015, it was a weird instance for all sorts of reasons. For one, the PlayStation 4 had come out the month before, so…

It’s time for the Sam and Henry episode.
