by Darrin Wrighton September 23, 2013

Rayman Legends Review | Boy She Makes Me Sing (Bam-BA-Lam)

by Jake Valentineon September 16, 2013
277 days. That’s how long I waited for Rayman Legends to release. Many of you will point out that the number seems extraordinarily large, but we have to remember that the game was supposed to be a launch title for the Wii U. It was then pushed back to a “launch window” type category before […]

The Last of Us Review | Breathless

by Katerina Perichon June 24, 2013
