Netflix dropped another season of BoJack Horseman this weekend. As is tradition, I sat down and watched all of it all in one go without realizing.

Dragon Ball FighterZ, the gorgeous DBZ fighting game from Guilty Gear developer Arc System Works, won’t be out until early 2018, but Compete contributor Ian Walker and I got to play a demo at an event in San Francisco last week. After (virtually) beating the snot out of each other, we talked about it.

Hey! Pikmin, you are a disappointing game.
