Shh, don’t tell anyone about High on Life’s legally dubious Frasier joke

The recently released High on Life is full of hilarious pop culture references, from nods to Metal Gear Solid to fully watchable 90s movies. My favorite joke, however, comes from a legally dubious Frasier joke (that I probably shouldn’t be drawing attention to).

The gag is easy to miss, as it’s tied to a hidden collectible. Throughout High on Life, players can find Trash Bag Babies trading cards. As you might have guessed, these are a not-so-subtle riff on Topps’ old Garbage Pail Kids trading card line. Each features a different alien kid with their own name and flavor text describing their whole deal.

The most notable card in the series is #6: Frasier from Frasier. There’s no clever, veiled reference here; it’s literally just a card depicting Frasier Crane from Cheers and Frasier. At first, you may wonder if Squanch Games is even allowed to include a drawing of Kelsey Grammer in its game. The card’s flavor text implies that the studio doesn’t really know either.

“We’re not allowed to do this one,” the card reads. “This card is gonna get us sued. It doesn’t even really fit into the set but we forgot to change it so yep, this one’s just Frasier from the TV show Frasier.”

If you want to find Frasier and put him in your own collection, you can find the card in the Old Town location. Once you exit the portal, you’ll find it on one of the rooftops in the town (use the zipline above your head to get to it). Just make sure not to tell anyone once you find it. We wouldn’t want Squanch Games to get sued.

High on Life is available now on PC and Xbox via Game Pass.

TopSpin 2K25 serves up a fun, but safe tennis simulation revival
Serena Williams plays Tennis in TopSpin 2K25.

The first video game console I ever owned was an original Xbox that came bundled with two games: NCAA Football 2005 and Top Spin. My appreciation for both Madden and tennis games can be traced back to those being two of my first-ever console gaming experiences.

That’s why I was very excited to hear that Mafia 3 developer Hanger 13 and publisher 2K were bringing the Top Spin tennis series back with TopSpin 2K25 after a 13-year dormancy. Unfortunately, I'm disappointed with how underwhelming the overall product is. Even though it’s the series’ grand return after over a decade, it feels like an extremely iterative sequel to Top Spin 4. It’s certainly approachable, thanks to great tutorials and new meter systems to help players learn proper timing, but TopSpin 2K25's light content offering doesn't make for the strongest opening serve.
Top Spin returns
Developer Hanger 13 hasn’t been coy about the fact that it used 2011's Top Spin 4 as the base to build TopSpin 2K25. Top Spin 4 is a fantastic tennis game that people still play to this day, as it perfected the series’ timing-based gameplay. This isn’t like Mario Tennis Aces, where a special ability can shoot you across the court and hit timing doesn’t matter. TopSpin 2K25 is a true simulation, so learning proper positioning on the court, when to release a button to swing your racket, and how to aim your shot properly are all critical to success.
