The Joy and the Stick

A video game review for gamers and novices alike.

Let’s say you’re curious about video games or want to get back into them after years away, but you don’t know where to begin and you feel like you need a guide.

That’s where Slate V contributors Win Rosenfeld and Dan Pashman come in. A gamer and a gaming novice, they get together to test drive and discuss new releases.
