You know what I can’t stand about sale pages on Xbox Live Arcade? You can never seem to find the regular prices or amount saved when searching through the items available at the discounted prices. How am I supposed to know how much I’m saving if I didn’t know what the price of an item […]

If you live in Toronto and you’ve never seen a movie at the Ontario Place Cinesphere, you’re missing out.

It’s official! My mind has been blown! Nintendo’s E3 press conference was relatively short, but packed with so many major reveals that my mouth was agape while watching.
