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

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.
