My favorite Morpheus game so far is RIGS

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and virtual reality -- those were the two things, by far, I most enjoyed at this year's E3. Steven did an exceptional job of capturing the essence of the former, so now it's on me to describe the la...   read

Mecha Trigger made me feel real dumb before it made me feel (kind of) smart
