Closers Purification Update Rant (9/16/2018)

A Game of Love and Pain: Overwatch

Overwatch is a game of love and pain for me. I love that the game focuses on team play, that it has a colorful cast of characters, how different each character is, and that the game is fast paced like Quake. Then again, most of those ...

Why I Hate God of War
