Grand Sphere: Legend of the Dragon – F’ing Great F2P

For a long time I’ve had the bad habit of installing a ton of games on my phone and tablet but never actually playing them. I went through a phase where I downloaded a variety of the more popular titles like Puzzle and Dragons, Dungeon Link, Final Fantasy: Record Keeper and Terra Battle to sample. While I found something to like in a number of these games, none ever really hooked me. So there they languished, idly occupying space on my smartphone’s flash storage.

ZOMG, Legit Review! – Dragon Age 2 [PC, PS3, 360]

Killing Time in Kirkwall Dragon Age 2 is not the consolefied catastrophe a vocal minority on the Internet would have you believe.

I’m still not sure if I’ll ever do proper reviews on this site, but I want to branch out a bit from only covering other people’s coverage. So this is my first shot at a “quick look” style article. Although I’ve known about the game for many years now, it wasn’t until the last few months that I’ve started to get really excited to play Borderlands by Gearbox. I’ve long been appreciative of the workmanship Gearbox puts into their titles. They’ve made expansions for Valve’s Half-Life series, adapted Bungie’s first Halo game for the PC and shipped three high quality tactical[…]
