Review: Onrush

2

Yeah I know, it's a review that's taken a long time coming, but there's good reason. Like Driveclub a few years back, Battlefront 2 was crippled on release by a swarm of...

Review: Yomawari: Midnight Shadows

It’s bleak. You start off by walking into the woods to bury your dog that has died. You cry every day a note reads. What happens next is shocking and caught me...
