Dragon Age ... All of them…

Despite my husband’s best efforts in the nearly ten years that I have known him, I do not consider myself a “gamer.” I was always the one to read the strategy guides while my husband played. When he would get lost or ask for help, I...

Call of Duty - Black Ops III

I know there have been mixed reviews but I believe Activision and Treyarch did an amazing job creating Black Ops 3. They brought a little of the old and added some new features that really make it one of a kind. Now, I'm not big into Multiplayer...
