Crabs. Normal-sized. They are enemies. Let's move on.
Isle of Bxnes is a game out of time. Quite literally, it's an action-RPG set in what appears to be prehistoric times (though maybe there's been some sort of world-shattering something or other, and this is actually posthistory?),...

All three AIs need energy. Clearly, Starbucks has a growth opportunity on the planet Irata.
MULE Returns represents an attempt to bring 1983's M.U.L.E. to a new generation, a game which merits the renaissance because it introduced effective same-device multiplayer back when the device in question...

Are those Panzers in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
Question time folks – how do you feel about Voronezh? Unless you are either Russian or a military history buff, you probably won’t even have an opinion, you philistine you.

The chaser gets the quaffle past the keeper! Score 10 for Hufflepuff.

For some kings, that whole "divine right" dive is just a bit easier to swallow.
