Best Super Mario 64 Levels, All 15 Ranked

15. Wet-Dry World

Image source

Okay, this is one I think we can all agree with. Wet-dry World is just a slog and feels off when compared to the rest of the game.

It lacks a discernable theme or look to it, other than just being this big empty area where water goes up and down. Then you have those irritating robots that follow you around and try to launch you at the most inopportune times. Oh and then there’s the random town area that feels completely out of place.

What even is Wet-dry world? It seems like Nintendo had a concept for water level puzzles but didn’t really have any inspiration for the world that would house this mechanic.

Add on top of all that the fact that some people even believe that Wet-dry World exudes a mysterious negative aura, and it becomes clear why Wet-Dry World is … Read the rest

5 Features God of War: Ragnarok Needs to Be the Perfect Sequel

A God of War sequel was recently confirmed during Sony’s PS5 Showcase and I’m not ashamed to say that I screamed when I first saw it. God of War (2018) is a phenomenal game with an emotional narrative that can definitely get you in your feels.

We’ve reached a point in Kratos’ journey where he’s empty of all of his intense anger and he’s just a tired man doing his best to be a father. We’re tilting towards the end of Kratos’ story and the new sequel may or may not be the final time we see him. please no

Though, while God of War is, overall, a fantastic game, it isn’t without its flaws. There are a few much needed improvements that would make the God of War sequel near perfection.

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach Gets a Creepy & Impressive New Trailer; Coming to PS5

During the PlayStation 5 Showcase Event Livestream, a new trailer for the upcoming FNAF game, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, was shown and it gave players at least a little taste of what to expect.

The trailer shows what sounds like a young boy trying to back up away out of what appears to be a Fazbear restaurant. A young woman’s voice can be heard trying to persuade Gregory (presumably the boy’s name) to come out and play, apologizing for “losing her temper” earlier and saying that it was “just a glitch.”

Then, at the end of the trailer, another voice can be heard. A gruff sounding older-man tells Gregory that “she” has found “us” and the trailer shortly ends.

Now to the uninitiated this could appear as a barebones trailer, but FNAF series veterans know that there is potentially a lot of info stuffed in there.

18-Year-Old Italian Musetti Stuns Stan In Rome

#NextGenATP Italian Lorenzo Musetti earned the biggest win of his young career Tuesday evening at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia, stunning three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka 6-0, 7-6(2) in the first round. This is the 18-year-old’s first ATP Tour victory.

Musetti had only played one tour-level match before facing the former World No. 3 in Rome. But the teen, who won three qualifying matches to reach the main draw, showed few nerves at the Foro Italico. He displayed an aggressive all-court game to oust Wawrinka after one hour and 24 minutes.

“I have seen him play on television and I know he is a very tough player,” said Musetti, who will play Kei Nishikori in the second round. “I’m going to enjoy the victory before I start thinking about my match against Nishikori.”
