    Pretty much any recent Dell XPS laptop would make for a fine machine. I think my XPS 13 was at the low end of the range at the time (1080p non-touch screen, i5, 256GB SSD, etc) and it's been great. Yo...

    Doom 2016, for some reason. I enjoyed it, but I guess I wasn't sufficiently invested, so when I got distracted I kinda abandoned it. I feel like I'd probably need to start from scratch if I returned t...

    If I utterly despise the seedy business model of paper Magic, will I be similarly repulsed by Arena? I'm not willing to support anything resembling that hive of gambling, speculation and laundering, t...

    Pretty sure this was my 2016 GOTY, and this is far from the only value-add they've done to the game since launch. I could see this motivating me to go back in for a third playthrough, though little mo...
