Worth It?

I really wish this was how it went down, rather than another company taking advantage of the increasingly retarded buying habits of gamers. I don’t mind that the idiots are being swindled out their money with these extortionate prices, however occasionally there’s content that I’d like to buy if [...]

The Truth. Exposed

Better than (an) average

MCV today released the results of a survey into salaries in the gaming industry.
