THE HATEFUL EIGHT Movie Review

DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION Fashionably Late Video Game Review

There is without a doubt in my mind that DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION is the best in the series.  If any RPG lover overlooked this game, then it stands that they are just missing out, period.  The story, the pacing, the variety, a...
