Vanquish On PC Is The Definitive Way To Play

Vanquish was originally released in October 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, doing what Platinum does best and infuses over the top crazy action with the third person genre, which by then has become tried and true with its corridor waist high cover based shooting. The fast paced, high octane, time slowing action brings something innovated to the Third person shooter genre. Along with its visual design and boss fights, Vanquish garnered much praises.

It’s kinda hard to play those games if you can’t read. Continue reading “Newest Harvest Moon Is A Great Intro For Young Players”

And after a series of events, Persona 5 was placed in the hands of man in Japan and months later… the rest of the world. Continue reading “Persona 5 Review (PS3 & PS4)”
