Disintegration – Review

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of robots and A.I., just the idea and imagery of a robot or android with it’s own intelligence adapting and learning enhancements, is an incredible concept. Didn’t help when movies like Terminator and Robocop came out and threw hardcore violence into the mix.

Mafia II: Definitive Edition – Review

Tidal Shock (Early Access) – Review
