Shovel Knight is a video game about a knight who carries a shovel. It's an NES game released 25 years too late. It's the type of platformer that a whole lot of people have been craving for a very long time.
My initial foray into the world of High Moon Studios' Deadpool video game culminated in an intimate moment in the eponymous character's filthy bathroom. Pants around his hideously-scarred ankles, our hero strains. "It's burns!" he cries, and it does — but it also feels kind of good.
There is joy in stupidity.
