    Ever have one of those quiet moments where you are haunted by things you've said? Whatever it was, it just keeps replaying over and over, and you wonder why you said anything at all. To be sure, our modern society makes it exceedingly easy to speak... More

    Not too long ago, Game Informer had a feature article about a political topic. The reaction to said topic was varied, and heated. Angry words flew about in the comment section, and then... just as swiftly as the moment had come, it was gone. The article... More
