PurelyNicole’s Games of the Year 2014

We entered 2014 with new consoles and new games for those consoles. Well, some of us did.

So, for the sake of this conversation, we can assume that the primary Borderlands team is working on a next-gen Borderlands 3. AND Telltale’s Borderlands series is starting… Continue reading
