    NeverDead

    Sad the way originality is treated within the gaming community today.

    What a surprise! Another game comes along & I love it, whilst the gaming masses shun the hell out of it. Sad really. Neverdead has set the groundwork for a really great and compelling franchise. Unfortunately, many a "pr... Read Full Review
