    The Rebel Flagship: The Final Hurdle of FTL (Best Boss Battles)

Whereas other roguelike games I find more frustrating than entertaining, when I play FTL, I often find myself doing four or five consecutive runs, regardless of the success of any given one.

    Best Boss Battles: The End (Metal Gear Solid 3)

    It’s time to talk about another of the greatest boss fights in the history of video games. Metal Gear Solid has an odd sort of tradition in regard to sniper boss battles. There are more than a few examples of these. Sniper Wolf from MGS1. Quiet from MGSV. And of course, the hottest sniper waifu […]
