The Birds and the Bees

The Birds and the Bees

It’s the inevitable talk that comes with being a parent. Chances are you were on the receiving end as a youth and it is only a matter of time before the tables turn and you sit there starring at your offspring, uncomfortably shifting in your chair, wondering how to bring up the birds and the bees.

Review: Dragon Age: Inquisition

Review: Dragon Age: Inquisition

The Dragon Age series has seen some troubled waters over the past couple years.  Their first game, Origins, was a critical hit and was well loved by almost all who played it. Following the success of Origins, Dragon Age 2 was released and to say it was a disappointment is an understatement. While I enjoyed the game overall, it completely lost the magic of the first game that made it so special and...[Read More]
