There's Not Much To Love About The Latest Marvel Game

Poor Juggernaut. All he wants to do is roar his triumph to the heavens, yet his mouth remains closed. It's a fitting allegory for the frustration I feel over Marvel Contest of Champions, a game that could have been so much more than what it is. » 12/13/14 2:00pm 12/13/14 2:00pm

Angry Birds Star Wars II Could Have Been A Great Shameless Cash-Grab

Making a mobile game crossover is easy. Just take your popular game and re-skin it to resemble whichever pop culture phenomenon will rake in the most cash.
