furiousreviewpic7

I was recently asked to review a 1984 karate movie called Furious.

Star Fox Zero E3 2015 Preview

Star Fox Zero

One of the biggest attractions at this year’s E3 was the playable demo of Star Fox Zero for Nintendo’s Wii U console. This season there was a dearth of new, quality games that were actually available to play on the floor. So, the fact that an actual demo was available to play for Star Fox […]
