If you’re look­ing for the short, spoil­er-free shop­ping rec­om­men­da­tion, then Mass Effect 3 (and in fact, the whole Mass Effect series) is an expe­ri­ence that no seri­ous gamer should be with­out.  In fact, if you’re seri­ous about spoil­ers, refrain from … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Deus Ex: I Am Not Adam Jensen, Either.

I didn’t play video games when Deus Ex (the orig­i­nal) was released.  I have, since then, acquired a copy of the game and played part of it.  To be hon­est, it’s a bit dat­ed, but still cool.  Con­sid­er­ing that it’s … Con­tin­ue read­ing
