"Metal Gear Survive" is now available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

‘Metal Gear Survive’ is a series low point

As the most baffling game in the most baffling series ever made, “Metal Gear Survive” has reasonable claim to the title of “Weirdest Game Ever.” But break down the forces behind its creation, and it suddenly becomes one of the most sensical, cynical business decisions made in the video game industry.

"Breath of the Wild" launched in March alongside the Nintendo Switch.

Predicted winners for the 2017 Game Awards

2017 has been an incredible year for video games; Nintendo released the Switch with success, Sony gave us a slew of exclusive Japanese titles like “Persona 5” and Microsoft premiered the most powerful console to date with the Xbox One X. “PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds” (“PUBG”) took the digital distribution platform Steam by storm, and starting next month, it will do the same to Xbox Live. Whether you own a console or gaming PC, there were generation-defining experiences to be had.

"Rat Queens" revolves around a group of foul-mouthed female mercenaries. 

‘Rat Queens’ entertains with laugh-out-loud dialogue, ‘Bone’ takes a fresh spin on the coming-of-age genre

With the new “Marvel: Infinity War” trailer out this week, new seasons of superhero shows like “Agents of Shield,” “Runaways” and new episodes of “The Gifted,” I’m just trying to hide somewhere dark and deep where the Marvel Universe hasn’t pried its grubby little fingers yet.

Charlie Berens, of 'Manitowoc Minute' fame, kept it movin' with the Daily Cardinal

With a Wisconsin accent and growing bread for No-Shave-November, Charlie Berens walked up to the fifth floor of Vilas Hall after sleeping on a plane. The J-School alum and former Daily Cardinal arts writer was in town for the Michigan game and spent the afternoon chatting with current Badgers. In his time away from Madison, Berens moved around a lot, taking risks and networking as a TV-broadcaster in Dallas before transitioning into satire and comedy.

Goldstein explores changes within the Janesville community.

Janesville’s story told to Madison book festival attendees

“I’ve got a question,” said Amy Goldstein, veteran Washington Post staffer and the writer of “Janesville: An American Story.” She paused and pulled back her frizzy red hair, scanning the book festival audience from a pedestal at the Madison Public Library. Her book is about the closure of Janesville’s General Motors plant, but nobody in the crowd was wearing steel-toed boots or worn-in work pants; it was more of a sneaker and wool sweater affair — an assortment of Madison professionals. She asked her question anyway: “How many of you here have some connection to Janesville and the plant?” Dozens of hands proudly shot up.
