No, not my core group of Comm-majoring-drunk on-a-Wednesday-afternoon-losers—I’m talking about the six greatest people you will ever meet on the single greatest sitcom you will ever see (except for Ross and don’t @ me on that). Like, I’d never survive my 20s had I not learned that counting Mississippily when spray tanning results in borderline blackface, "meat sweats" are a legit medical condition, and being “on a break” apparently doesn’t

Blizzard takes legal action against ‘Overwatch’ copycat

The first thought you’ll have about Cuphead is how stunning it looks. Indie developer StudioMDHR has fully committed to a 1930’s cartoon-inspired, hand-drawn art aesthetic for this title and it works perfectly. Bright, colorful characters and a whimsical jazzy soundtrack set the scene in every environment. It’s hard to look at the game in motion and feel unimpressed.
