Nothing but the Hotfix

It's a matchup of what's faster... and also what's cuter? We put up a run of Kirby Star Allies up against a run of Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition.

GDQ's Hotfix shows air every week and you can catch them all at the Games Done Quick Twitch account.

Under the learning tree with Masahiro Sakurai

Masahiro Sakurai started a YouTube channel! Let's learn from his decades of experience together by looking at one of his latest videos. This week, Sakurai talks about the principle of 10 people doing the work of 10 people and how that might actually be flawed thinking.

This week in Shaqnews

In a rare case of actual Shaq news, Shaquille O'Neal discloses that he recently underwent hip replacement surgery. We hope to see the big fella back on his feet soon.


Dude! This match!

Tonight in video game music

Let's return to PAX East and revisit this Thursday night set from Bit Brigade!

Senior Editor

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
