My First Three Days with Far Cry 2

Over these three days I had enough game breaking glitches to end four or five play sessions but I persevered. If you do the same then rewards await. The game is haphazardly delightful. If you've played it you know what I mean.   D...

Paper Mario: The Origami King review

If there's a game I've played in recent years that defines 'a fun time, but-' to the letter in my books, it'd be Paper Mario: The Origami King. It's a grand adventure that's colourful, well-written, has great set pieces, and a fantasti...

Never heard of this game but it seems pretty good, only thing that would turn me off is if you drop souls/expreience on death and have to pick them just find that a pointless mechanic that makes it more akward to leave a game when you want/need
