With Cyberpunk delayed till later in 2020, how, oh how was I going to get my futuristic fix? Now, while ‘7th Sector’ by Носков Сергей isn’t the RPG I am frothing to get my hands on, this side scroller puzzler, now available on console from Steam, will certainly slay that

Unfamiliar – Review

Cats are interesting animals. For the most part, they are graceful and elegant, constantly curious of the world around them. Other times they can be extremely lazy and hilariously clumsy. One thing all cats have in common however, is the air of superiority they maintain, believing they are above everything
