On the Couch with Matt: Watching Others Play Video Games

Introducing non-gamers to Twitch is never easy, and I’ve also found it tough to introduce periodic gamers to the service as well.

I can play game after game, and if I get tired, I can switch to a different sport. It’s great, and I even like to create an entire team and have an impromptu story go along with them for a season or two.

Review: Batman: Arkham Knight

“Batman: Arkham Knight” is an incredible third installment of an incredible series. It’s M-rating gives it the extra edge it needed to be vastly different from its previous predecessors. Is it still Family-friendly? For the most part, yes it is, but there are several moments throughout the main story and side missions that you may want to turn your kids’ heads away. After those moments, enjoy the incredible voice acting, gorgeous graphics, and perfect story inside the grand city of Gotham. Oh, and take a the Batmobile out for a spin as well, just remember to return it with a full tank.
