Watch Dogs 2

We gamers can be a rather salty bunch. It’s not always without merit, though, in the case of many furores that now seem to arise daily in our age of early-access stuff ups and Kickstarter fraud. When the first Watch Dogs grabbed gamers’ attention, it […]

Rad Rodgers: World One

Hey, here’s something fun we can do. Let’s flip the format backwards and jump to the end right at the start! Rad Rodgers: World One is great, and you should totally pick it up! I’m not even kidding. I loved the hell out of this […]
