‘Victor Vran: Overkill Edition’ Review (PS4)

‘Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3′ Review (PS4)

by Phil Wheat

First person shooters. Yeah, lets just say that I don’t get along with modern-day FPS games. Give me Doom or its sequels, any games from the Unreal or Quake franchises. Hell, even the likes of Hexen and Duke Nukem 3D. Now THOSE are first person shooters I an get behind. But Call of Duty and […]
