When I heard this trick-tacular news about Sega offering Jet Set Radio for free on Steam as part of their “Make War not Love” campaign I immediately downloaded the graffiti-glorifying Dreamcast classic. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve purchased Jet Set Radio (all right, I can: three). Each time I purchase it for a new console, it gets a little bit better.
It’s one of those games that’s infuriatingly difficult but impossible to put down. (The Dark Souls of rollerskating games, if you will.) Jet Set Radio is wacky, irreverent and original. It is so unabashedly itself, you can’t help but adore its sincerity.
So go download it on Steam for free if you (foolishly) haven’t already. It’s the only game where you’ll be able to roller-skate and fight the power at the same time.
Ticket reservation for the Final Fantasy XV event (aptly entitled Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV) hosted by Kinda Funny Games’ Greg Miller and Tim Gettys will become available in less than ninety minutes! Which has me asking the very, very important question, “Why am I so excited?”

Gravity Rush Remastered, the gravity-defying action-adventure game originally developed for the PS Vita, is available for purchase as of today on the PSN.

I have very few qualms, concerns or complaints with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I haven’t touched many other PS4 games since I’ve started it, and I don’t believe that will change until I’ve completed the game. CD Projekt Red’s third installment in their glorious grey hair simulator series (a.k.a. The Witcher) is just plain addictive! But that’s not to say I haven’t had my share of frustrations.
I mean, no game is perfect (excluding Half-Life 2, of course). There have been times when I’ve been unable to contain my anger at Geralt for continuously igniting and snuffing out candles near treasure chests. There have been other times when I wished the text on screen was a smidge less incredibly tiny. But the aforementioned complaints seemed too miniscule, too unimportant to lodge formally (or informally, for that matter). But, lo and behold, CD Projekt Red is fixing all these tiny annoyances with an upcoming patch. Read on for more info!
