Warframe is one of developer Digital Extreme’s latest games. It is a multiplayer, third-person, co-op, shooter set in the distant future of our solar system where, apparently,Read More →

Despite almost 300 hours of game play on Civ 5 and countless games of various iterations of Heroes of Might and Magic I have NEVER finished a game of either. I’ve been right on the ragged edge ofRead More →
