Get a feel for Civilization VI with this 60-turn demo

Nintendo Download: Azure Striker Gunvolt: The Anime

I'm glad that Azure Striker Gunvolt has some sort of audience. An audience big enough, at least, to warrant to full entries, a spinoff, and an anime. It came out of nowhere with none of the hype of Mighty No. 9 and fully surpassed it critic...   read
