Review: V-Moda Crossfade M-100

Trends of this Generation: Waggling with motion controls

If current estimations are to be believed, the current console generation will be the longest we’ve seen in the history of gaming. As of right now, just a little less than one-third of my life fits between November 16, 2005 and now. T...   read
