What a slog that was. I started playing Fairy Fencer F Advent Dark Force in December, after getting it for cheap in a Black Friday Sale last November. Initially I liked it. It was goofy and kind of crude but it made me laugh. Fifty-ish hours later, my feelings have […]

The Open Beta for Marvel Heroes Omega on PS4 starts today, though as of right now it’s not showing up in the store yet. I’ve had a lot of fun with this game and recommend you at least give it a try. If you don’t like it, you haven’t spent anything, right?
