PSA: Far Cry 6 is free until August 7
If you've been curious to try out Far Cry 6 but haven't done so yet, it's free for the next couple of days, with big discounts offered if you end up buying the game. I gave the game a solid 8/10 in my Far Cry 6 review, praising the gunplay and visuals.
Phoenix Wright vs Alex Jones
You've probably already watched the destruction of Alex Jones, but now you can see the Phoenix Wright version. Quite frankly, it's not getting old. This was a thrashing.
Ryu is ready for Evo 2022
Ryu is ready for Evo 2022, and word on the street is our own TJ Denzer is too.

Red Dead Redemption 2 continues to share secrets from its vast open world, and Strange Man is a great YouTube channel to dig into them.
