Hidden Horrors of Gaming: Why Child Labor Laws Exist

On July 3, 2013, Posted by , In Editorial, With No Comments

I’m feeling this with Muramasa on the Vita especially; needing to quickly switch to a potion or life-saving action while dashing away from danger, only having to move away from the left-analog stick that removes me from danger to then select said item on the d-pad! (or vice versa in…

You know what I love? Genocide. Wait, that came out wrong. Let me try this again: You know what I love? The ease of avicide while trying to achieve complete and total apricide. That’s right, I’m talking about flicking kamikaze birds into thieving swine. I’m talking about punishing the wicked…
