The particularly vitriolic nature of the recent presidential election has led some to find themselves looking back on the 2012 election with nostalgia.

Robert Davis, Editor

May 18, 2016


Filed under Reviews

There are many words to describe the Dark Souls series -- engaging, fun, unique -- but the chief word is difficult. The Dark Souls series has always been advertised as hard, even titling the first game "Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition." This series is not recommended for the faint of heart. ...
