I Learned Something Today: Final Fantasy VI

I’ve been known to go on many adventures. My wife always refers to the next adventure as my final one. However, for my latest adventure I had a trick up my sleeve. I would name it two different things to help in the confusion. Is this the third adventure or the sixth? She couldn’t keep… Continue reading

Krater: Shadows Over Solside Reflex Review: Bright Future for this Apocalypse

When I preordered Krater: Shadows Over Solside I wasn’t sure exactly what I was getting into.

Dragon’s Dogma Video Reflex Review: Jump On It, Mr. Dave
