    Jodie limped along the road, avoiding helicopter wrecks and surrounding debris. A nearby fire hydrant burst into a fountain of water, and flames erupted from the corner gas station.

  • Blog Post: Ten Of The Most Iconic Outfits In Video Games

    As the old adage absolutely does not go, clothes maketh the game character. The way a character is garbed can make or break their personality as well as their appearance.
