Warcraft: The Beginning

by James Buckinghamon 01/06/2016
Video games have been created off the basis of films for a long time now, which seems to work out very well, However when the process is reversed and a movie is based on a game, there seems to be some kind of curse that means they’re instantly going to be terrible. I’m glad to […]

by Sai Mealingon 22/04/2014
From an outsider perspective, the world of MMO’s is a funny old one. As someone who typically never plays the same game for any longer than a few hours and has a tendancy to move from one online shooter to the next, I’ve never quite understood the desire to stick with the same game for […]
