These are the games that we’re playing this week. Fallout (PC) I’m still chipping away at Fallout and still enjoying it quite a bit. It’s just a really good story and there’s a lot of neat stuff to play with.

Hopefully 2015 won’t continue the trend of [...]

December 2, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s a new month, and one that is historically pretty quite following a massive November. Brian returns to the feature this week, joining myself and Jules as we give our gaming run down for the week. Eric’s hasn’t changed any, so he isn’t joining us this time around. With that out of the way, here are the games we’re playing this week. Path of Exile (PC) This free-to-play action RPG released last year, but I’ve only just started playing it Sunday. I’m very early into it, but thus far I’m enjoying it.
