It's not you, it's me
Falling in love with potential can be dangerous. A mistake people make far too often when forging new relationships is placing undue expectations on others. People grow and change, but it's impossible to know how or when that... read feature

Though it may not be worth a double-dip
Apr 22
Shovel Knight has arrived this week on the PSN, bringing Cross-Buy and Cross-Save promotions to the PS3, PS4, and Vita platforms. I had a chance to test out all three, and although the justification for buying it again is very slim, it's no doubt the best version yet. read

Oh maaaaaaaan. I am only ever dancing as Chie in the yellow Bruce Lee Game of Death jumpsuit. Criminal to only show that off for like four seconds (:58). Either don't show it all and leave it a lovely surprise, or parade that thing around like it's a bright yellow jumpsuit. Oh. Kanji dances, too, I guess. I think his default costume is background character in House of Pain's "Jump Around" video. read
