Pure Game Play ep.1 – No More Heroes 2 on Wii

Hey friends back again with a Pure Game Play video. This time I play a bit of No More Heroes 2 on everyones’ favorite little console, the original Wii.

Not the most powerful of the big three but, as we all know, power never means better game play.

Social Gamer Approved – Oceanhorn on PC

Hello my friends, Social here is a new post on a new site in a new year…okay now that the intro is out of the way let me share this with you.
I’ll be posting games here from time to time that I feel should get some “extra shine”. I’ve played so many games on so many platforms for so many years now that I’ve noticed, even to this day, mostly the (Triple A big company) games get special “or extra” attention. What I mean by that is for most Indie titles with the exception of a few games that have both succeeded and failed due to over hyping…..
