  1. Gasp! Shame, shame Bioware!

    Hahah, I love when games are delayed for the five billionth time, and some eventually never get released. Then we all wondered why they waster 5+ years making a game that never got released. XD

  2. I really like that treasure hunt that Dante’s Inferno is doing. That reminds me of the time that I applied to Stark Enterprises whenever Iron Man first came out ’cause the website had an application for it.

    • Iron Man = my superhero crush. Fact.
