EDIT: So, so sorry for all the technical hiccups this week; we have no idea what's causing them, but this should take care of all final issues. One of the best-selling ZELDA games of all time makes the leap to the Wii U with a stellar visual upgrade, but do the clearer visuals cast the game's flaws into relief? That's what we're discussing this wee…

We've got a double-dose of the old webhead this week! We played two games loosely based on the 2012 Andrew Garfield AMAZING SPIDER-MAN movies. The movies were little-loved, but the games provide the early DNA for the webslinger's future adventures. The question is, is there a reason to go back to these one's when Insomniac's game has perfected the …

Plus: we have lots of opinions about N64 on Switch and the new Mario movie! …
 
Roll out and transform, because this week, it's TRANSFORMERS: Redemption? The last time we played a game featuring the iconic robots in disguise, it wound up being one of the 5 worst games on the Nintendo 64, so the series has a lot to make up for.

This week, we're talking about one of the most unlikely comeback stories in gaming history!
