As a parent I’m always on the lookout for games my children find interesting that offer something beneficial to them (in my eyes). Games like Minecraft, for example, are incredible examples of fun activities that cultivate the creative spirit in all of us.

Let RNG be your guide in the first expansion for Hearthstone! If you are wondering where that RNG (Random Number Generation) will take you so am I, but the journey is too fun to pass up.

It may come as a surprise to some that the Skylanders franchise brings more money to the Activision coffers than the popular shooter Call of Duty.

I’m a lonely Warlock equipped with a shotgun, meandering around the barren landscape of Old Russia. I take it all in slowly,  looking for some side missions after a long, grueling strike on Mars.
