However, when a game is released in America but the rest of the world must wait […]

REVIEW: Dragon Age Inquisition – Sometimes size does matter

REVIEW: Dragon Age Inquisition – Sometimes size does matter

Here be dragons!

It’s difficult to imagine, after playing Dragon Age II’s cluster of repeated alleyways and subterranean chambers, but to put it into perspective: the […]

Destiny – Destined to be a good game?

Destiny – Destined to be a good game?
