Critical Review: Assassin’s Creed: Revelations

Another year, another Assassin’s Creed game. I’m not sure how I feel about Ubisoft cranking out a new game on a yearly basis. Part of me, the part that is in love with the plot and the characters in that universe, is ecstatic every time a new game is announced. The other, more rational part […]

I was half tempted to just type the word “Skyrim” and hit publish, but who knows? Maybe we’re going to run into a freaking Wisp Mother that one-shots us like 12 times, to the point where we get so upset that we decide to go read a book or watch some TV before we throw […]
