Review: Friday the 13th (PS4 Video Game)

We recently purchased a third-person, multiplayer survival game based on the very popular movie franchise, Friday the 13th, how could I say no?  We quickly purchased (Approx. $55 CDN) and installed the game, and then we waited and waited some more.  Our excitement quickly halted – the game requires that you connect to 7 other […]

During a recent adventure to Wal-Mart to grab some much-needed groceries, no exaggeration the fridge was looking like something out of the Grinch Movie – after that little bastard visited, I had decided to splurge and buy some pie for dessert tonight.
