Xeawn’s Gaming Corner Wants You!

As you can no doubt tell, I don’t have a lot of patience for making blurb updates throughout the day. Part of it is that I feel like big name games like Army of 2 don’t really need my help to do well, the other part is, well, I just don’t have the patience for […]

Hipster Gamers vs Hipster Zombies!
