5 Reasons Why Nintendo Is The Worst

We all have our favourite gaming platforms PlayStation, Xbox, PC and for others there is Nintendo.

5 Top LGBT Characters in Video Games

5 Video Game Sequels That Surpassed The Original

For the most part sequels are nothing more than hastily knocked together shite, made so that developers can make enough money to fill their golden yachts with so much cocaine that it would bring down Amy Winehouse’s Ghost.
