The Order: 1886 Review: Window Dressing

In the first chapter of The Order: 1886, Galahad — the player character — slowly walks through a beautiful and meticulously crafted environment.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth Review: Acid Redux

Persona-Q-Shadow-of-the-Labyrinth-ReviewI have spent a lot of time living from April 11th, 2011 to March 20th, 2012. I’ve lived it once, twice, three times.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is, above all else, boring.
