This season of #GameOfThrones has been insane, having spikes of greatness throughout. Despite some major slow down, what the result was was worth it. My review goes deeper into my praises and complaints, with spoilers, obviously. Take a look.
‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 sets up the end of this great game we’re all in.

I hope #RiseOfTheTombRaider doesn't get lost in the hype. Our review of the game is up. Maybe it'll grab your attention.
 
#RiseOfTheTombRaider is a shining example of what a third-person action game should be. Our Review
Lara Croft’s battles with her interior demons and against quasi-supernatural forces combine to make ‘Rise of the Tomb Raider’ a compelling tale and a worthwhile single-player experience.

These two brothers are trying to get kids to innovate at a young age... I report.
Milwaukee siblings Que and Khalif El-Amin see themselves as innovators. Yet for them, it’s not enough. They want young Milwaukee kids, who might otherwise
