News

Welcome to Daily Glixel, the B side of video game news, where we round up some of the day’s other top stories. Do you prefer to play certain games on certain hardware? Personally, I think handheld consoles like the Nintendo Switch or PlayStation Vita are great homes for platformers, side-scrollers, and visual novels. I enjoy them more in that format.

Uncategorized

No hate. No fascist U.S.A.” That sense of cranky rage and ageless idealism are all over The Visitor. On the somber folk shuffle “Almost Always,” he complains about “livin’ with a game show host,” while the forcefully hard-grooving “Fly By...

CMT’s long-running Crossroads always finds interesting combinations of performers with similar musical sensibilities, rather than the zeitgeist-fueled collaborations often seen on awards shows. Still, it may come as a surprise to hear Kesha and Old Crow Medicine Show mentioned in the same breath until you see their performance of “Your Love Is My Drug” from the show’s newest episode.
