I was standing in line at Best Buy the other day when someone out of the blue asked me if I played Call of Duty.  “No, I do not” I replied, a hint of disgust in my voice.  … Continue reading

Review: Yakuza 3

Recently, I decided to finally address a glaring sore spot in my backlog: the Yakuza series.  Deciding to skip the first two PS2 entries in order to make the task at least LOOK like something I could accomplish, I… Continue reading
