    We all love surprises, don't we? I love it when a game, movie, or album surprise me in a good way. Payday was a game that had some great ideas but overall it fell short. I mean, who wouldn't want a great co-op bank heist... Read Full Review

    The Witcher 2 is the best rpg since Baldurs Gate2. The combat is improved and of course the story and graphics = wicked.

    The first The Witcher game was very well done but suffered from a handful of issues that stopped it from being the perfect adult fantasy RPG. If you are new to the world of The Witcher, its a Polish book series that they... Read Full Review
