  • Overwatch: It's Game and Story...

    Overwatch has become of one of the best games out there within the few days it's been shown to the public in 2014. The story is great as well as the game itself, but what good are they together? I mean, there is a deep and powerful narrative in the... More
  • Social Gaming

    When I was a kid, video games were not as…accepted as they are today. I remember my mother taking photos of me playing my SNES and saying that I’ll look back and laugh at the stupid things I used to do. I thought that she was crazy. And who... More
