Dragon Age: Inquisition (2014) review

I spent 30 fucking dollars on this trash!  What the fuck!? Rated: 1.5 / 5 What you would like to do in an ideal setting is to take the most realistic objective standards of masculine and female beauty and apply them to the videogame.  You don't want realistic portrayals in that sense because you're actually … Continue reading Dragon Age: Inquisition (2014) review

Torment: Tides of Numenera review

Rated: 4 / 5 I've tried to get through a few RPGs in the past, and failed.  Final Fantasy VIII, Final Fantasy IX, Diablo, Diablo II, and Baldur's Gate.  Basically amounted to just losing the will to continue in those games.  It had to do with the monotony of combat, grinding, lack of interest in … Continue reading Torment: Tides of Numenera review
