Ten-Dollar PS4 Gift Cards Have Beaten Out Twenty-Dollar Ones On Amazon

Ten-Dollar PS4 Gift Cards Have Beaten Out Twenty-Dollar Ones On Amazon

The titan has been toppled. Amazon’s 2018 list of best-selling video games (and video game accessories) has revealed that the $20 PS4 gift card—2017's best-seller —is now in third place, behind the more affordable $10 gift card.

But what could have caused such a fall from grace? I have a few theories.

If you buy two $10 gift cards instead of a single $20 gift card, you get twice the plastic,...

The Agony Of The First Minute Of <i>Minit</i>

Before I even really began playing, Minit presented me with a challenge.

Unsurprisingly, when I started the bite-sized adventure, my instinct was to explore, explore, explore. I didn’t yet have a 60 second timer looming over me, which is the interesting mechanic the game touts as a major part of its appeal.

There’s not much to do other than pick up the sword lying on the shore near your house....

Minit Is A Zelda-Like Where You Die Every 60 Seconds

<i>Minit</i> Is A <i>Zelda</i>-Like Where You Die Every 60 Seconds

In Minit, you play as a Q*Berty-Tamagotchi-lookin’ walking-duck-face person-character-thing who finds a cursed sword. The curse of this sword is such that you will die every minute. Despite this, the game manages to be many hours long. How does it do this? Well, it’s clever. I made a video about how clever it is.
