Digging through the lies - Shovel Knight

Is there a difference between American and British Shovels? Maybe. But they didn't localise the game properly in that case so my point still stands. Shovel Knight has clearly lied to us all. If we watch trailers of this “acclaimed&rd...

Music Notes: Emotion by Carly Rae Jepsen

  When I review albums, I like to find a central theme that it's trying to communicate. "Emotion" by Carly Rae Japsen has two modes, so to speak. One is "I love you, you love me, so let's dance and mess around", the other is "I cheris...
