Nintendo Switch: Slide Stars

Slide Stars is a strange, yet brilliant, concept for a game. It’s a water-slide game where you play as 20 different online influencers. I’m not kidding. This is real. Imagine if a video game company approached me and said, “We’d like to put you in our game!” From a marketing and public relations perspective, it’s smart because, presumably, these influencers, none of whom I’ve ever heard of, will promote this game on their respective platforms — getting it in front of what I assume is a large audience. On the other hand, this transparent and unabashed sales strategy might turn off everyone other than the followers of these influencers. So, is this game any good? Read on for my thoughts.

Book Review: Women Love Wrestling

Women’s wrestling is more popular than ever. The renaissance of women’s wrestling started in TNA Wrestling — now known as IMPACT Wrestling — at Bound For Glory in 2007 when Gail Kim became the first Knockouts Champion. Prior to this event taking place, female competitors were seen as less than, not equal to, their male counterparts. They were celebrated only for their looks, not their ability. It was a sad state of affairs that was rectified, at least in TNA, in 2007. Today, women’s wrestling is hot in every promotion on the planet, including IMPACT Wrestling, WWE, and AEW. For fans that can’t get enough of the women’s revolution in wrestling, you’ll want to read Women Love Wrestling.
