Sword Art Online: Lost Song - Charming, but Archaic

Sword Art Online is largely an unknown to me. I know it's an anime, manga, and videogame series about a group of kids who play a virtual reality MMO known as Sword Art Online. I also know they the main characters were stuck in this world fighting to the death (as if you died you died in real life). It's a pretty heady storyline, but Lost Song is my first real dive into the world of Sword Art Online.

How Class Imbalance Works for ESO

The Elder Scrolls Online has to be one of the most unbalanced games ever to be designed. Dragonknights have a high DPS value with an impressive amount of survivability options. Sorcerers are probably the most annoying classes to fight against with their easy escape abilities. Nightblades have their high burst damage, doesn't matter if they're melee range or shooting you from a distance, and Templars are the worst of them all.

We even got to play a bit of the new incredibly challenging raids that launched on the 17th before scoring our review. So then... how does Heart of Thorns stack up?

Why Twitch Needs Bob Ross

I was surprised that Twitch were putting on a marathon of The Joy of Painting, on the surface it seems so anathema to what Twitch is all about.

The idea had tons of novelty for the usual twitch crowd, and the show is earnest enough that it makes for an easy target for that schoolboy 'my first ironic detachment' attitude that the videogame audience is so bound to.
