They like all sorts of games from casual to traditional, from Candy Crush Saga to Battlefield 4. Developers know this and many first-person shooter video games now include female characters for gamers to play… Read More »

I woke up this morning and realized that over the last month or so a collection of tiny changes have come together into something much bigger.

My Xbox 360 exploded during the Summer of 2012. Initially, I thought this would mark the end of my gaming life. Not only were 90% of my games for Xbox 360, most of my friends were primarily XBLA users. It seemed like my 60 dollar subscription had flushed down the drain, as well as my… Read More »

I’m the type of person who needs quiet time. I don’t really mean silence but instead alone time. I crave time every day to do what I want to do without the necessity of entertaining or interacting with anyone else. This can be as simple as time alone in a room to browse the web… Read More »
